A deaf dog described as ‘fantastic’ by an animal charity in Sheffield is looking for a new home.
Fudd, a cross breed,is being cared for at the RSPCA Sheffield’s animal centre in Attercliffe.
They said he is ‘lively, friendly and enthusiastic’ who would benefit from a new owner with time and patience to continue his training.
He has been taught some basic commands at the kennel by staff and volunteers using sign language to communicate with the dog.
Acting Animal Care manager, Tammy Wilson said: “Fudd is very smart, and eager to please.
“He has already learnt some of his basic commands in sign language in the short time he has been here at the centre, and will be quick to learn more.
“Fudd was born deaf and so is looking for that little bit more tender loving care with owners who have the time and patience to continue his training.
“Fudd is just one of many animals the centre currently cares for. Many come from no fault of their own and some from cruel homes.
“Because of his lively and bubbly nature, we would prefer a home for him with older children, if any, over the age of 16. He can be somewhat overenthusiastic so will need a family who are willing to follow set training to help him control this.”
