Hello everyone. My name is Kye and I am a male collie, approximately 1 to 2 years old. I think I’d better start by saying that unfortunately I am deaf. Some say this is a big disability in a dog, but I don’t agree! All I need is a special home with someone who is willing to put in some time to help train me. The staff and behaviourists here say I am an intelligent dog, and I’m already learning some sign language to help my new owner communicate with me. As you can see from the photo, I behave very well with other dogs.
I would love a new home with another well balanced, trained dog who I can follow around and learn from – they can be my ‘ears’! Ideally my new family would be collie experienced and active – I love my walks and to play. I am a very friendly and have loads of love to give – I think I’d make a rewarding pet. I would be happy to live with older children, but younger children may not understand that I cannot hear and sudden movements may startle me.
The behaviourists here will offer on-going support and help with my training to my new owner. Well, that’s all about me! If you think I’m a good match for you please give the staff here a call.
