Devo (Lab cross) and Ty Bo (Poodle/Pomeranian cross) trained by Dogs For The Deaf in Oregon. They are wearing their orange ID Cape dog vests to identify them as Hearing Dogs. Here is some more information about the wonderful organization that trained these two special dogs.
For over 30 years, Dogs for the Deaf has been rescuing dogs from shelters, professionally training them, and placing them nationwide and in Canada with people who can benefit from their special training. Dogs for the Deaf trains Hearing Dogs to alert people who are deaf or hard of hearing to environmental sounds around them, Autism Assistance Dogs to provide increased safety and emotional bonding for children with autism, and Miracle Mutts who provide emotional support, therapeutic benefits, and a reason to live to people with a variety of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. These dogs are placed free of charge with applicants who need their assistance. Dogs for the Deaf is a non-profit organization funded totally by donations.
