|I own a mostly deaf sheltie. My other dogs do not seem to notice he is different. However, I have seen other dogs definitely notice a dog they live with is different. I have never had a dog meet Jericho, play with him and in the short time span of only a few hours notice he is different.
I do believe with time a sensitive dog can tell another dog is deaf, but I also don't think it is extremely common.
As far as Jericho himself, he is different from other dogs and has developed some amazing coping behaviors. He is a brilliant boy, and I love him very much.
BTW, anyone wondering how to train a deaf dog can read this article I wrote on the topic. It has some good tips.
