Jon is a sweet and sensitive boy. He is fun and clever. Being deaf does not stop him enjoying life to the max, in fact he probably doesn't even know he's different! Jon loves to play with a ball, he likes to keep his brain sharp by learning new things, then it's time for a nap! Waking him can be a challenge as he's a sound sleeper but once he's awake he is ready for walkies. When out and about Jon is social with other dogs and he likes to be able to meet and greet every dog, his carers are working with him to teach him it's not always appropriate to meet every dog. Jon prefers remote walks as he can find the world a bit scary at times, particularly fast-moving cars and large livestock animals. When Jon is worried, he looks to his carer for reassurance, tucking himself between their legs to help him feel safe. As Jon can't hear he relies on hand signals. He is very eager to communicate with people, consistency is the key, and he knows a lot of tricks through sign language.
Type of home needed
Jon is waiting for his special someone to help him confidently explore the world and make some new friends on the way. He is looking for an adult only home and to be the only dog in the home but have doggie friends when out and about. Experience with deaf dogs would be helpful. Jon will need a home that is not too busy with no traffic near-by and lovely remote walks.
