Little Ivor’s first seven months of life were a blur of confusion. The poor puppy had five different owners in just one year after being moved between several dog shelters.
Every time he started to feel at home somewhere, he would be kicked out because no one wanted the dog. Lvor had re-entered the RSPCA’s database.
He had lost his family because he had taken in animals for shelter five times. Ivor was described as a loud dog who wouldn’t stop barking by everyone who had ever owned him.
The shelter soon made the decision to look into this matter more thoroughly because it was clear that no one wanted lvor.
Ivor had been rejected by a number of families because he had spent a lot of time in shelters. After being returned a fifth time by a family who was baffled by the dog’s unusual behavior. If a breeder has several puppies, it can be difficult to tell if any of them are deaf.
When a volunteer at Ivor’s dog shelter checked his hearing, she understood why Ivor had trouble adjusting to life in a typical home. The previous owners were unaware that Ivor was deaf.
In order to interact with the dog, Ivor started learning sign language. Ivor picked up the lesson quickly. By forcing him to touch the palm of their extended hand, the volunteers first taught him to approach before introducing him to other fundamental commands.
Ivor was soon placed up for adoption once more, when he met the young woman who would eventually become his devoted owner. The two were able to communicate right away. Ivor was adopted by her and brought home.
The Girl was eager to advance his education. Ivor had missed out on so much in the other homes, and she wanted to help him make up for it. Ivor keeps an eye on everything and can tell when someone is trying to talk to him.
Living with a deaf dog can provide challenges you wouldn’t often encounter with a dog, but the girl is equipped with all she needs to care for Ivor.
