Home needed for doggy mum and her deaf daughter
Dogs Trust Bridgend is calling on dog lovers across Wales who could offer double the love to a doggy mum and her deaf daughter who were found together as strays.
Staffordshire Bull Terriers, four-year-old Spring and nine-month-old Snowdrop, have found themselves looking for a new owner who will adopt both of them and give them a second chance at happiness together.
The team at the Pen-y-Fai based centre believe that Snowdrop has been deaf since birth, but as she is still a puppy, she has so much potential to learn through sign language. She is a lively pup who loves to bound around and play. Her mum, Spring, is devoted to her and happily shows Snowdrop the ropes when it comes to playtimes and walking on her lead. Staff say they are totally devoted to one another and would love it if a new family could take them both on and give them the forever home they deserve.
Rebecca Baker, Assistant Manager at Dogs Trust Bridgend, says:
“Spring and Snowdrop are have a wonderful bond. Wherever Spring is, Snowdrop is never far away. Snowdrop is very much a mummy’s girl and looks to Spring for reassurance, so we really want them to find a forever home together.
“Snowdrop is deaf but we hope potential owners aren’t put off by this. Deaf dogs can have a perfectly normal life and can be trained fairly easily using hand signals and positive, reward-based techniques – you just have to be a bit more inventive when it comes to gaining their attention.
“They are looking for an active home with new owners who take the the time getting to know them and invest in their training and socialisation. Snowdrop gets on well with other dogs but Spring can be a little unsure so her new owners will need to help her with this. They could live with children over the age of 11 so would make great family pets. Both girls have so much love to give so please do get in touch if you have space in your heart and home for them.”
