Favorite Walk: Uptown Minneapolis or on the Greenway on a cool day
Best Tricks: No tricks yet, we are going to learn up on teaching deaf dogs tricks and signs and teach him everything he can handle
Arrival Story: We saw Frosty on the Secondhand Hounds page. We remarked on how unique he looked and then went about our day. A few weeks later we went to Paws On Grand in St. Paul and my wife goes "Is that Frosty?!" She recognized him just from a picture in a sea of dogs. Once I picked him up and scratch his ears and he closed his eyes and licked my mouth I knew we had to adopt him. He has become fast friends without our other dog, Daisy, and they walk wonderfully together.
Bio: Frosty was born deaf. He is a "double dapple dachshund" which basically means somebody bred him to be a certain look/pattern. Many of the double dapples are born blind or deaf or both. Once they found out Frosty was deaf, they apparently just dumped him in the woods. He was found in a barn in the country and basically found his way into our home through Secondhand Hounds. We're teaching him sign language and making his life as normal as possible. He's great!
