Some animal rescue people take on really difficult cases, like bottle-feeding newborn kittens who need around-the-clock care, or taking on a dog that requires eyedrops several times a day. Even if I didn't have a full-time job and was capable of doing that sort of rescue, I don't think I have what it takes to make that commitment. I admire those who do, but I am content saving my favorite type of rejects - deaf dogs and pit bulls. So when my recent special needs pets were adopted and they were no longer rejects, I decided to look for another one of my favorites and see if I could help them. I went looking for one and found three!
I was sad that my last deaf foster dog was adopted so quickly - I really enjoy working with deaf dogs - so I contacted another rescue group who has had a deaf pit bull at their shelter for quite some time. This is Boo Bear. She was living in a car before she went to the shelter, so she's never been in a house. She needs some work with house-training and manners, but the rescue group who has her absolutely loves her. I can't wait to go meet her. I don't know if I'll take her home or not, but it's a definite possibility.
