Deaf Dog Learns Our Language!

Dog Learns Sign Language To Charm New Owner

The staff at Dogs Trust West Calder are appealing for a new home for Johnny, an eight year old Collie who is deaf.

Johnny does not let his deafness hinder him and he has been taught how to respond to hand signals. He loves people and is very affectionate. He simply loves to play; enjoys being in the car, and has lived with cats.

Johnny came to Dogs Trust after his previous owner sadly died. They were very close and were always out walking together; Johnny even slept by his masters bed. As he has spent so long in such a close, loving environment, the staff at Dogs Trust are keen to find him a home soon as he loves his home comforts.

Susan Tonner, Dogs Trust West Calder Rehoming Centre Manager, said:

Johnny is an absolutely fantastic dog. His deafness does mean that he will need a quieter home where he can establish a routine. He would be perfectly suited to an older, perhaps retired, couple who can really get to know this great canine companion.

Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity, caring for over 13,500 stray or abandoned dogs every year through its network of 16 Rehoming Centres across the UK. Dogs Trust is urging anyone interested in rehoming Johnny or any of the other rescue dogs at Dogs Trust West Calder to call the Rehoming Centre directly on 01506 873459.
