I don't think I ever introduced Snowy here on the blog, so why not now? My husband and I adopted her in January. She is an adorable, one year old white shepherd/border collie mix who constantly makes us laugh and fills our hearts with love.
just look at those eyes...
and those ears!
My husband and I fell for Snowy pretty much immediately upon seeing her on petfinder.com. We learned from her rescuer that she had been abandoned at 10 months old and was completely deaf, so we started researching and preparing for what training and raising a deaf dog would be like. To be honest, it's been a piece of cake! We have taught her hand signals for sit, lay down, stay, roll over, shake paw, look at me, no, and NO! (they're different), and good dog -- an enthusiastic thumbs up -- which we use the most!
So far it hasn't just been a heartwarming experience with Snowy, it's been a lot of fun too.
...I told you she makes us laugh!
