FUNDS NEEDED for youngster's essential lessons
Like most puppies, Shammy has been both playful and naughty. His silly antics include sticking his face in the water bucket, picking up then tossing toys or bowls, and zooming around excitedly. Other habits include pushing aside his doggy roommates to greet people, jumping up on visitors and sometimes pulling on their clothes, arms or legs. We now know why this adorable Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler boy is extra-challenged by obedience efforts: He is deaf. Hearing-impaired dogs are still highly trainable. They can learn body language/facial expressions, hand signals, certain touches and other strategies. Of course, success will take patience and commitment.
Please assist this very important effort to offer precious Shammy some specialized instruction ASAP! We can tell he's eager to please, loves attention and always wants to be a part of things. So matching Shammy's energy with directed behavior is the goal! Both breeds in his background have a history of herding instinct—the natural desire to move livestock by nipping at their heels, which may extend to other pets/animals or even children. Channeling Shammy's activity level in a positive way will definitely increase his adoptability.
