Roger has found his forever home!
Roger is an incredibly sweet dog. He is just 3, up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped. Roger is perfectly house broken and very well behaved. He weighs 75 pounds and is absolutely gorgeous. Roger is deaf, but that doesn’t hold him back. He loves to play, be active and enjoy being the center of attention.
Possibly as a result of his hearing disability, Roger needs to be left alone to eat. He seems to become startled when approached while eating. For this reason, he is not a good choice for children under the age of 10. It is very important that his new owners understand the importance of Roger being left alone while eating.
Rogers family love him so much. With another dog and a growing family, they simply are not in the best position to give Roger the time and attention he needs and very much deserves. They want the very best for him, and realize that another family would be better suited to meet his needs.
If you have room in your heart and home for this very special “special needs” dog, please offer Roger his forever home today. He can’t wait to wiggle his way into your heart and home.

Happy, friendly, loves his tennis ball, loves to play with other dogs. Even without being able to hear, it does not seem to slow him down at all. He often follows our other dog and happily goes along.
Reason For Rehoming
We adopted Roger not knowing he was deaf, which has been a problem with our household. He is a really good boy, with a growing family and another dog, we are unable to give him the attention he needs.
