Meet Kenyon!

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

Kenyon is a young (4-5 years old), blue double merle Australian Shepherd. She was rescued from a kill shelter in Georgia where she had just weaned a litter of pups. Kenyon is a loving soul and although she has sight impairment, she does fantastic once she learns her surroundings. She is also deaf, but is learning touch signals very quickly!

Kenyon is incredibly sweet, and very intelligent. Kenyon is crate and house trained, and has not had a single accident in the house since her Foster Mom has had her. She goes to the door and politely “asks” to go outside. Kenyon is relatively quiet, too. She has only barked a couple of times and that was when she was playing with her foster brothers and sisters. Yes, she runs and plays outside, too!

Kenyon walks beautifully on a leash, and does not pull. She loves to go for walks! Kenyon is VERY loving and wants to lay near you whenever she can. She will do anything for a dog cookie!

Kenyon is currently being cared for by a foster family in Charlotte, North Carolina. 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.
