    Two weeks ago I asked for your help in naming my rescued deaf puppy. After some great suggestions I settled on the name of "Rocky" ( he is a fighter)( the dog that is) so far we are doing well with teaching him signs. He follows me everywhere and is eager to please me. I think we will do just well with the training he needs. thanks all of you for responding to my request and for all the encouragement you sent. here is an updated pic of him.

    I have a deaf Jack Russell Terrier--Little Cindy-Lou Who--who's has been with me since she was 5 weeks old. She is now 8 1/2 years old. She doesn't know she is deaf and most of the time I don't either. Smart as a whip and so loving. She is a joy in my life. I have always been especially careful about not letting her get out except to the fenced yard. Since she cannot hear, the danger of being loose is great.

    Congratulations on your new puppy and may you be as happy with him as I am with my little furbaby.....

    Rocky seems to fit his name perfectly! He looks like such a sweetheart! Thank you for taking him in, and seeing him as just a little different, not disabled! My mother had a deaf dog when I was very small, and said there was little difference, except that she would stomp on the floor to get her attention.

    Rocky is adorable and is a great looking puppy. I have a Jack Russell that I swear is deaf but she (Katie Sue) can hear a feather hit the floor.LOL I think it's just selective hearing. You just gotta love those furbabies.

    I had a dog that went deaf and another one that went blind. Good luck with him. My deaf dog was much more trying than the blind one.

    Yes he is a boston terrier, his parents are both "show " dogs but he was rejected because of his deafness. I also have one named Bennie that is a rescue dog. his owners were moving and could not take him along. He is now 10 years old and blind on one eye. i really don't think he will make it for another year, his health is getting poor. thanks for your interest.

    Love the name. Rocky looks like a real sport. Glad you are having success with the sign training.

    We rescued a VERY sick poodle puppy. He was near death but with a good Vet and lots of TLC he is happy and totally devoted to us. What a joy he is!
