New Foster Dog Harlow- Pics

I'm happy to announce that foster dog Mitzi was officially adopted on Sunday! Woo Hoo!!! So, we have a new foster dog- Harlow. Harlow is a west highland terrier/JRT mix who's about 2 years old and deaf. She was at a kill shelter when the rescue pulled her. She's a funny little thing. I've only had her for about 5 days but she's already following me around like a little white shadow. She's very smart and has learned the signs for sit and stay although she doesn't always do what I ask. ;) Must be the terrier in her - LOL. I'm surprised at how cautious people are about deaf dogs. Thinking back I realize that I was cautious too but they're really almost as easy as a hearing dog and they're not afraid of thunder or the vacuum. Anyhow I hope she gets adopted soon.

Good point about the barking! I'll have to remember that and put it on her webpage. Your work with the pug rescue has been an inspiration for me Gaye, as has Donnas volunteer work. Now if I can just get my foster dogs to stop attacking the chickens I'll be doing good. Fortunately the chickens have pens I can put them in but it's a hassle.

What a little cutie!

I'm thinking a deaf dog might be ideal for an apartment dweller.
