Meet Bonnie!

As part of our series this week for National Dog Week and National Deaf Awareness Week - we would like you to meet Bonnie!

18-month-old Bonnie was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Georgia the day before she was to be euthanized. When she arrived in her foster home, she was an adolescent cattle dog with no training whatsoever. She bounced off the walls, the cabinets, and the people in the home. She is now turning into a wonderful little dog.

Bonnie is very smart and learns quickly. She has learned the signs for sit and down and is picking up more each day. She has learned to sit at doorways before going in and out. She no longer bounces off of everything. She plays well with the other dogs and loves attention. Bonnie is very food driven and motivated. She is very agile and could easily be a candidate for agility. She is very quick and has a great vertical leap! Bonnie is the very typical Velcro dog and loves to be with her people.

Bonnie is currently being cared for by a foster family in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. She is listed through the Deaf Dog Education Action Fund who provides education and funding for the purpose of improving and/or saving the lives of deaf dogs. They are a non-profit organization founded to speak on behalf of and assist in the betterment of life for deaf dogs everywhere.
