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! Once he's awake he is ready for walkies. Jon is social with other dogs, he loves to walk with his doggie pals and he likes to be able to meet and greet every dog he sees,his carers are working with him to teach him that it's not always appropriate to meet every dog. Jon prefers remote walks as he can find a busy 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 himself 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. Ideally Jon's home will need to be local enough for adopters to visit the centre a few times and for Jon to do a few visits to the home before adoption.
More about me
I am not currently available for rehoming as I would like to meet my new family a few times before I go home, which is not possible at the moment due to current restrictions. My Canine Carers will let you know as soon as this changes, so keep an eye on my profile
During these uncertain times, whilst we have had to unfortunately close our
rehoming centres to the public, we’d like to reassure you that our wonderful
staff will continue to provide the best possible care for our dogs. We are now
able to start the search for new homes for a small number of our awesome dogs.
This will really help us to support even more dogs who are most at risk of
being put to sleep as a result of this crisis. We have been overwhelmed by
your offers of support, and we wouldn’t be able to do any of this without
your help. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to
those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs
get fed, walked, looked after and, as soon as we are able, finding them
their forever home. We appreciate you thinking of us at what is a difficult
time for all. If you would like to make a donation to support whilst we continue
looking after the dogs in our care you can do so here...
