Dandelion is such an AWESOME little guy with TONS
is now a whopping 3 months old and winning hearts
wherever he goes! He has a beautiful, fluffy white
coat, the most stunning blue eyes and a tail that
never stops wagging!
Dandelion continues watching and learning new things,
everyday. He is one smart fella! He is learning hand
signals at an amazing rate. He has learned the signal
for 'come, sit, down and good job' and obeys them
consistently. He is very in tune to facial expression
and body language. He is so intuitive and responsive
to people and other dogs, that people are astonished
to learn that he is deaf!
Dandy sleeps through the night in his crate without
a peep. His potty training is progressing unbelievably
well. In the 3 weeks that he has been in his foster
home, he has only had a handful of accidents. (mostly
due to momentary inattentiveness on his foster family's
Things Dandy LOVES, LOVE,
He will pick up and carry his food bowl around
when he is hungry and eats every meal with gusto,
even remembering to lick the outside of the
bowl too! You know... just in case.
Good for a nice cool drink, even better for
playing in!! Yes, occasionally that the water
bowl. (you have been warned!)
Dandy is a tugging fiend! He also loves to
chase toys. Toys with funky textures are favorites
too. Really, any thing to Dandy can be a toy,
especially things he thinks he is not supposed
Any and all. No discrimination here. He greets
everyone like they are a long lost friend
Any dog that will play with him......big, small
or all sizes in between!
Dandy love so be hugged and kissed. He even
doesn't mind being carried around in any position.
Whatever works for you, he just goes with the
Things Dandy does not like;
Can't think of any off the top of my head that he
doesn't like! Nothing really bothers him at all...
He is such a happy guy that everything is fun for
him. If it is not fun, he makes it fun! He is a big
party in a little fluffy package!
Sometimes he is an absolute angel, sometimes he is
a little hellion, but he is always super smart, super
fun, super lovable guy.
NOTE: Although Dandy's
foster family had quite a bit of experience training
and fostering border collies, they have had NO previous
experience with deaf dogs. They are pleased to be
finding that it has been very easy to adapt to even
in an active family home. The family finds themselves
giving simultaneous verbal and hand signal commands
to all the dogs in the house without even thinking
