I say all of that to say this: I love my deaffies! They are great dogs and are not "damaged" or throwaways. When I first got Pickles I was mad at the people that tied her to the tree but then I realized they were probably doing her a service, although I'm sure they didn't know it. Nea was dropped off at the Montclair, NJ Animal Shelter just before Thanksgiving 2010 which is just about when we got Pickles. There was no reason in the paperwork from Montclair as to why she was dropped of with them but I suspect that the owners found out she was deaf and didn't want her. Little did they know that deaf dogs make some of the best pets there are!
Pickles and Nea were born this way! Remember, you were born the way you are, too! I was born this way!
