If you remember from this post we were considering adopting this adorable Morkie puppy, who happened to be deaf. Well, everything went great. I talked to the current owner and we were set to go meet her and possibly bring her home when she called be about another family who wanted to adopt her as well. She was giving me a heads up since I had contacted her first. I asked about the family since it seemed like there was more to the story than just that. Turns out it was a family with a deaf son boy. Apparently they had been looking for a specifically deaf dog so that their son would feel less alone. How could anybody say no to that? So, needless to say, we will not be bringing home the puppy. But I have a feeling it is going to a MUCH better home that is more equiped to dealing with deafness.
So, the search is on for a new puppy! I am pretty sure we have found our new with another family that we wouldn’t have found if we had decided to adopt the other one. I guess everything works out for a reason!

@Mrs Hedgehog: Aw, well, I’m glad it worked out for that puppy.
Have you been in touch with rescues? We’ve worked with a few, leading to one adoption (our pug) and they were wonderful.

@atalante: I have. The puppy we have now was from a rescue. But the problem I am facing with rescues in this area is that they are wanting to charge $300-$400 for just the dog. No shots, no spay/neuter. And if it were a purebred I would understand more but most of these dogs aren’t. I just don’t get it.
But, the puppy we are meeting tomorrow is from a family that just adopted her but can’t keep her because their male dog hates her and keeps trying to attack her. So, I am okay with taking her over some of these rescues! She is precious and looks just like our Snorkie did when she was a baby. It is a maltese/terrier/poodle (Shh. Mr. Hedgie hates poodles and doesn’t know this part!).
