- How could you resist these pink lips? They are just waiting to be
kissed by my new owner, wherever you may be...So what if I am deaf,
everything else about me is absolutely perfect. I love all people
(although I may knock you over if you are just a little tyke), I love all
dogs and I am fine with cats. I am crate trained, walk well on
a leash, very smart and most importantly - I am the most lovable creature
alive! All I want is your love and someone to play with me. I
promise to be your very best friend. Read my new update below.
My foster Dad wrote it, as he knows me best and would be happy to answer
any more questions you might have about me. He is going to his
shared beach house for the 4th of July holiday and wishes he
could bring me along. Unfortunately, not all the people in the house
feel the same way we do about dogs, so I can't go. Can you come to
visit me this weekend? If so, please call Lynne at (718)
417-4903. Be sure you have completed an online application first.
Oh, by the way, I am in the big city...NY, NY!
06/28/01 - Update
on Whitey- Report from Whitey's foster home:
Well here's the scoop on Whitey (I
call him "Ghost" since he can't hear me anyway, and unless he
sees me, he doesn't know I'm around).
Whitey appears to be deaf, or at least extremely hard of hearing.
never seen him respond to any sound, and I mean ANY SOUND!!! He is
absolute sweetheart with everyone he meets, though he insists on giving
hugs to everyone. Given his hearing impediment, it's been really
keep him from jumping up on people without disappointing him.
Ignoring him or pushing him away incites serious barking (again, since he
can't hear, he barks VERY loud -- probably feels the vibrations in his
He LOVES to eat. Given the
opportunity, he'll eat ANY and ALL food put in
front of him.
He's really good on a leash. He's quickly learning to wait for
walk through doors first. For the most part, he is not a tugger.
occasional "reminder jolt" he walks at "human
pace" and doesn't tug. He
enjoys sniffing and looking for food -- again, he probably counts on his
nose more since his ears don't seem too reliable.
When Lisa dropped him off, she
warned that he wanted to go at it with every dog that he saw.
Though he's very excited to see dogs when walking on a leash, he's gotten
A LOT better when he sees other dogs. After a few days of
hesitation, I took him to the dog run, where he immediately became a huge
hit and a friend to all dogs that were looking for a playmate. Now
we go twice a day -- his favorite times of the day. He's never
fight, but he's been in a couple of altercations with jealous dogs.
He seems house-trained, but he had a few accidents in the beginning.
Unless I'm home, he stays in his new, large crate. Unless new owner
has an area for Whitey to run around during the day, I'd suggest crating
him until they're comfortable that he "feels at home." If
I don't cause any
vibrations or breeze when I come home, he continues to sleep until I go
the crate to wake him. ;-)
He's an extremely curious boxer -- gets his nose in anything that smells
good or new.
5/25/01 - Update on Whitey:
We had a professional trainer come and check out all of our rescues here
in NY East. The trainer adored Whitey! She said he will do
anything for a liver treat:) He knows sit and shake....at least when
he knows he is getting a treat! Whitey still resides at the kennel,
for we do not have any open fosters for him. Unfortunately, we do
not know how he is with other dogs, so we can not place him in a dog home
unless you are prepared to come and test him out with yours:) He is
a handsome fellow that deserves a home as soon as possible. He will
show you his appreciation - that's a guarantee!
5/17/01- Whitey is a white male approximately
2 years old. He is all white with a black nose and a few cow spots
scattered around. This poor baby was a stray that came to the
shelter very thin. We do not know what happened to him, but he has
a few marks on him, one across his head and others on his body. He
gives big boxer kisses, loves to play, and has lots and lots of boxer
energy! He is currently crated at his foster home and doesn't mind
too much. He needs someone that can help nurse him back to health
and teach him some manners. His foster mom has been working with
him on leash walking and he is getting the hang of it.
If you have
experience with dogs and want to transform this loving guy into the
perfect dog, please complete the online application
and call Whitey's
foster mom Lynne at (718) 417-4903. He is waiting to be rescued by
