Phoenix, AZ – Deaf dog in need of loving family


This is Keegan, a two-year-old blue merie Sheltie. He weighs a little over 30 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, doggy trained, and up to date on shots. Keegan walks very well on a leash, is friendly with most dogs, and gets along great wih cats. He was turned over by his owner for “destructive behavior” and the owner did not have time to work with him. Fortunately, this problem has been solved. Keegan was born deaf, but he is very attentive and outgoing. Deaf dogs can be trained just as well as hearing dogs. He is currently learning hand signals and doing very well! He is extremely people oriented and adores his foster family. This guy will make a great best friend and addition to any household! Keegan would probably do best in a house with another dog, as the other dogs acts as an alert for Keegan since he cannot hear. Older children are also probably best for Keegan. He might require a bit more attention and special accomodations might have to be made for him, but the love and loyalty will be more than worth it in the end!
