Meet Our own deaf
We got word in 2009 that Max (Asher) developed a seizure disorder,
which got bad enough that they had to have him PTS.
6/7/04 Asher (Max) has a new buddy! Asher's folks also adopt Bones.
whose new name is Asher, was a very special case for us. Max was on
our waiting list, waiting for a space to open up here for him, when we
read Tricia's story of the loss of her deaf Dane pup. We do not place
pups, but we felt this was a unique situation. Max needed to get into
rescue, or into a home. And Tricia was grieving over the loss of her
deaf Dane, Lucas. After much discussion we decided to offer Tricia the
chance to adopt Max imediately. Although she had originally indicated
not be getting another deaf Dane, when we contacted her, she was very
interested. So, even though it bent most of our rules to the breaking
point, we arranged for Tricia to adopt Max without him ever coming here
to us. This was essentially a one time only exception, but it was clear
to all of us that this was not only the right thing to do, but that it
to be. We are proud to have been able to be a part of this adoption. As
you can see from the update photos above, Asher is living La Dolce
Vita, and is a very loved little puppy. And he is helping Tricia deal
with the loss of Lucas. A win-win situation, as they say.
