Shelter dog who is deaf who needs a home Conroe, TX

1 CommentBy | Oct.29, 2010 | Filed in: Support

PLEASE cross post/share this flyer to any contacts you may have with rescue groups who help dogs who are deaf. If you can provide him a permanent home that would be great as well (contact info on link). Thor was going to be euthanized at local shelter and a good hearted foster mom took him home temporarily. He needs a permanent home. He is a great dog. He is located in Conroe, TX. View the PDF attachment or go to https://sites.google.com/site/animalsinneedofrescue/ for more info.
