*** Storm is now RESERVED. We are no longer accepting applications for Storm, thank you ***
Storm has really caught the attention of the volunteers and stolen everyone’s hearts! She’s a typical playful and giddy puppy, who needs some guidance to see her through to maturity because she can still be a bit mouthy when she gets excited.
Storm is looking for a new home because there used to be squabbles between her and the other resident dog. Whilst she’s been with us, Storm has been relaxed with the other dogs in nearby kennels (once she has burned off a bit of steam out in the yard or on a walk) and she is happy with other dogs whilst out on walks but she will still need to be the only dog in her new home.
On a recent trip to the beach, Storm was fabulous. Even though she was a little nervous when she first arrived, she gained her confidence by knowing her human friends were by her side. She isn’t great at travelling and will need a covered crate to keep her secure.
Storm adores human interaction, she loves to play and equally enjoys and a good cuddle. She is house trained and crate trained. She can be left home alone for a few hours without any issues. Storm was great with the young child she used to live with but we would like to find her a calm home with a slower pace, so that she can unwind a little.
Out on walks, Storm has a bit of a thing about cars… she seems to be spooked by cars as they pass her and likes to jump up at parked cars on the side of the roads. We’re trying to get her used to being around vehicles and ask that her new owners understand her foibles and continue with positive training.
We’re looking for a super special family for Storm because she is a super special girl… you see, Storm is deaf. Please don’t let that put you off. Storm compensates for her hearing impairment by following hand signals and as you can see by her photos, she already knows how to do a very smart sit, along with other commands. Deaf dogs live perfectly normal and happy lives – Storm doesn’t know that she is deaf, as far as she’s concerned, she’s just a regular dog! We can give you advice on how to tweak your training to suit a deaf dog and build a fantastic relationship based on trust and love. There are also online resources and groups, such as The Deaf Dog Network where you can become part of the worldwide deaf dog community.
Storm would like a calm home with previous dog experience, where she can grow in confidence and fulfill her potential.
