Falcor, the Aussie~Adopted

Trusted Friend

Falcor is a 7 month old deaf Aussie.  When we use the expression, “deaf/blind” it does not mean that they are completely deaf or totally blind, but it does mean that there is some impairment.  The proper term is “lethal white” or “double merle”.  When breeders select two merles, in many cases they are trying to create a litter of mostly white Aussies.  Most if not all of the pups in the litter will be classified as lethal whites.  They are not called this because they are not healthy.  Lethal white pups are usually euthanized by the breeders.

Most lethal whites have some sort of hearing impairment, and have impaired vision in one eye.

To date, I have re-homed many lethal whites; Kiss, Velveteen, Fiona, Baby Ga Ga, Sassafras, Irwin, Dundee, Skate, Pi, and of course China.  China, to date, is the most intelligent dog I have ever owned, and she has been the easiest to train.  What owners of deaf dog tell me is that once you re-train yourself to use hand signals, all of your dogs benefit.

 

 

Kisses are not optional!

Falcor is being fostered at the Wilson ranch, along with Nitro, Fiona and Irwin.  His training is going exceptionally well, he is housebroken, and is learning a lot from the pack.  I hear Fiona is the boss of him! Check out his Photos on Facebook! Updates coming soon!

08/26/11 Update:  I’m happy to report that Falcor has no visual problems whatsoever, he is deaf, however he may hear certain sounds.  He is ready to be adopted, playing great with other dogs, there are no issues to report!  He is housebroken, and easy to train.

See for yourself, he’s an awesome dog and loves to be part of a pack!
