Meet Vigo (Wiggly Little Deaf Sweetheart)

Woof! Hi there! My name is Vigo, and I am a two year old hound / pittie mix. My human friends think I am fully grown, but I'm still a bit of a peanut ... I weigh around 45 lbs and have a small bod. I have beautiful white and sable fur and dark eyes that match my dark fur spots. I always think it's important to coordinate your fashion accessories. :-)

I'm still a young guy, so I can be bouncy, nibbly, and silly at times. I walk well on my leash (sometimes with a little bunny hop!). I am social, affectionate, and a real people pleaser. I'm a happy little guy who enjoys going to events and making new friends.

My human friends have discovered that I am at least partially, if not totally, deaf. It's hard to tell, since I so eagerly try to please my people and I am so obedient with my commands. If I am totally deaf, it's no big deal. I have adapted really well to hand signals and, of course, love!

In the shelter, I have shown a tendency to guard my food, which sometimes happens with dogs under stress, especially deaf dogs in a shelter setting. For this reason, I will need a home without children or other doggies, who may not understand to leave me alone while I am eating my noms. (I am actually really good with other doggies, so you could always bring me on play dates once I've been settled into your home.) If my new owners work with me on my guarding -- my shelter can give you some easy tips! -- I should become much more comfortable sharing my food.

One of my best friends said these nice words about me:

"Vigo is such an affectionate and silly guy. He is always so happy to see his friends that his whole body becomes one big wiggle! He walks nicely on leash and is great with his commands. Even though he can't hear, Vigo can follow hand signals really well. Vigo is such a good little boy who will make someone so happy. I love spending time with him!"

Thanks for reading all about me! I can't wait to meet you ... I'm saving a wiggle just for you!

Love, Vigo xoxo
