My name is Reef. I am best guessed to be a cattle dog mix. I came to rescue with my sister Summit. I need a family that is ready to invest in a life long commitment of training with me, in an unconventional way because I am deaf. I need proper socialization with other dogs in order to be able to learn canine communication. I am also vocal, so shared wall living is not ideal for me (such as apartments). I am 100% adorable and need a 100% lifelong commitment. Please research training deaf dogs AND the cattle dog breed prior to applying to adopt me. I need an advocate and someone who is willing to help me shine and be the best boy I can be. 

I am more laid back and like to watch before jumping into things. I believe I am a lap dog. Potty training is currently not my thing but we are working on it!

 

My foster mom has a dog that is deaf too, and she says he 'listens' the best out of the rest of the dogs! Hand signals, facial expressions, and body language are used to train a deaf dog. The most important things with training a deaf dog are to establish a way to get their attention and have a good recall. These 2 things, as with hearing dogs, could save a dog's life when in an emergent situation.
