I've just had a litter of pups and one of them is to be chosen to train as a hearing dog for the deaf. We're all so excited!!:D

Wow, that is amazing. I acctually was just watching a thing on tv about hearing dogs. They like let the trainer know when the phone rang and stuff. Nice job!!! :D

They desperately need dogs. Small to medium sized. Anyone with unwanted puppies, or that can spare a puppy from their litter should think about donating.:) If you are in the UK and would like to donate a puppy/litter I can pass on the details to you.

Hi Everyone. I am new to this but desperation has forced my arm!
I know of a collie-cross, a lovely gentle lady whose been working with a deaf lad for seven years. Unfortunately, he passed away last year and the lady - called 'Sweep'!, has since been neglected and is in desperate need of a good home. She loves children and knows voice commands and sign language. I have been in touch with 'hearing dogs' but they say that she is too old now (she'll be eight in September) to work with anyone.
It's such a real shame and my heart bleeds for her. She's retired and on the scrap heap, or so it would seem.
Is there anyone who knows of anyone who could offer her a loving home and some tlc?
Please feel free to contact me on 01443 431131 (Rhondda Valley) South Wales.
Thank you in advance

Hi Jango, I suppose its too late now but I would take her in a heart beat. Trouble is I'm in Australia so it probably isnt much use (sigh).
I have a Smithfield (looks like a cross between and old english and a border colle) she works with me at an elderly home. I wouldn't be without her. If she's still around, try some of the elderly homes, im sure they would love her. Good luck, Hippy in Oz
