Blind and Deaf Dog Abandoned by Bad Breeder

Blind and Deaf Dog

Dog breeding is a profession that is generally undertaken by those who want to spread the joy of owning a dog to others, breed champions, and even take full enjoyment in the companionship that any dog is capable of offering with no strings attached. Every now and again however a breeder will come along that shows little if any real compassion to their charges, displaying a level of ignorance and heartlessness that is borderline cruel and unusual. In the case of the two dogs that will be mentioned in this article the breeder has seemingly forgotten what it means to be a compassionate and trustworthy caretaker.

Double Merle

The two dogs in question are siblings that have been dubbed “double merle”. When a dog is possessed of the merle gene the pigmentation of their hair is the primary effect. This can create white or gray patches that can give their coat a spotty or patchwork appearance. However, when a dog is dubbed as a “double merle” it means that they have received a merle gene from both parents. While this is not always a precursor to any problematic issues, it can cause deafness in dogs and, unfortunately, vision problems as well.

Possible Problems

Dogs that are “double merle” tend to have limited vision as their pupils are deformed in some identifiable way. This can even cause blindness in some dogs.

The pair that are the focus of this article are brother and sister, and were both born deaf, while one was born deaf and blind. Their breeder, no doubt deciding that the two “double merle” dogs were too much to care for, abandoned them without an attempt to find them an adequate home. The callous nature of this act is horrible enough to contemplate when such a thing happens to a fully-functioning canine, but abandoning dogs with such obvious infirmities seems unforgivable by any standard.

There is no doubt that these dogs required much more patience and care than others, but given that they are still affectionate and playful animals it is cruel to believe that they are not worth the effort. Their needs were not met by the breeder, nor were they seen as anything other than a genetic mistake to be discarded and forgotten. A deaf dog would no doubt require a great deal of patience and work to train, and a blind and deaf dog would require even more, but no matter the difficulty, any breeder worth their title should know what it takes to care for their dogs.

Thankfully someone came along who saw the value rescuing the two dogs. This kind woman brought both brother and sister to her home, accepting them into her life without question as she saw to their care and well-being just as she does with her other pets. Now the siblings have a chance to experience full and active lives as they romp with their new playmates and are given the care and attention they require. Despite their physical handicaps this kind woman has given them a life that was almost denied by an uncaring and unprofessional breeder that saw little to no value in their dogs.

Conclusion

A dog is a companion and a friend for life when given the proper care. For these two siblings, life has taken a definite turn, and all for the better.
