It’s Deaf Dog Awareness Week

Did you know that it is Deaf Dog Awareness Week? Did you also know that Dalmatians are most likely to be deaf, in fact 30% of Dalmatians are born deaf in either one or both ears.

Today we would like to introduce you to TN Safety Spotters! This group is made up of rescues that are trained with American Sign Language and hand commands. They are then trained to become registered therapy dogs.

I didn’t know this, but the Dalmatian Club of American mandates euthanasia of all deaf pups. How truly sad. Luckily Safety Spotters is working hard to set an example of what they are capable of IF given a chance. They have changed the minds of many Dalmatian breeders and hope to continue with this difficult task.

Deaf Dalmatians can do anything hearing ones can except hear with their ears! They hear with their hearts!

American Authors – Best Day Of My Life (Dog Version)

This has to be the best music video ever. Not only a great song, there is an adorable bulldog in it, and the best part? It shares the adopt/rescue message!

American Authors have teamed up with BarkBox to create this super cute puppy love inspired video for “Best Day of My Life”, and that’s not all! Every single bulldog that gets rescued in September and October gets three free months of BarkBox and a full free year of BarkCare, their 24/7 vet service!! Now, if that doesn’t make you love a song even more, I don’t know what will.

Enjoy the video, and hey, why not give American Authors a like on Facebook too and leave them a big THANK YOU for helping the rescue dogs!
