SPECIAL NEEDS - Please share. Roxy is a deaf approximately 3 year old mixed breed. She was owner surrendered as an American Bulldog mix; she appears to possibly†be an Ambull/Pitty mix. Roxy is doing well at the shelter as staff has been diligently working with her. She is learning hand signals and getting the exercise she needs. She is an active girl, but she is also used to living in a home, so with a fun owner who will get her some daily activity, she should transition just fine back to a house dog.
Sadly, Roxy's original owners did not have the experience or understand the needs of a deaf dog. With no means to communicate, Roxy was loved, but lived a confused life. She is easily startled and so must go to a home with no children - this is part of the reason her original family had to give her up. She was also likely not appropriately socialized with other animals and due to her insecurities and lack of understanding of the world, she also must find a home with no other dogs.
Roxy finally is around knowledgeable folks at the shelter who can understand what life is like for a deaf dog and have worked with her. She has come so far. However, she cannot stay at the shelter forever. Aside from her deafness and need to be in a child-free, dog-free home, Roxy is a happy, loving dog who is already mastering hand signal commands and is a quick learner. Her previous owner also noted she was house & crate-trained.
Roxie (ID A077896)
