This is so true... More people need to be aware!
#DeafDogAwarenessWeek is the last full week of every September. Deaf #pets, like other special needs pets, make wonderful furry family members. Their deafness in no way reduces their potential to bring joy to your life and become a loving companion for your family. Many #deafdogs have white coats. Dogs born without pigment are also missing "hearing cells". These "hearing" cells start from the same stem cells as pigment-producing cells. If a #dog has no pigment in its body, it’s likely that it will also be deficient in the specialized “hearing” cells which cause deafness. #DeafDog #DeafDogAwareness #DeafPuppy #DogLovers #DogsOfInstagram
