My mums friends daughter brought a border collie from the dogs home yesterday. They suspect it has been abused because it has alot of scars on its body and it a nervous wreck and wees every time she touches it. They also say it is not house trained or lead trained at its six months old! However my mum got a txt earlier off her friend saying they think its deaf they said they thought it might be because it wasnt responding to them so the were it different rooms and made noises and they said it didnt respond. They said they are going to ask the vet check for them when they take it for its injection but they need to wait for the card to come. Im worried that they find it too much and end up taking it back though which i cant bear the thought of because chances are not many people will want a deaf dog and i cant bear the thought if it being put to sleep so anyway what i wnated to ask is do any of you have any experience with dead=f dogs? what happened? how do you cope? thanks!
