On Saturday we welcomed Ceazer as a new pit crew dog! Ceazer is about 3 years old and he is deaf. Ceazer is currently with Nick Risden of K9 Motivation for training to learn basic obedience and manners.
Ceazer came to us from Pikeville after his owner contacted us about needing to find him a new home. Pit Crew gets requests to place dogs daily and unfortunately without as many foster homes as there are dogs needing homes we cannot help everyone. However, something about Ceazer and his story spoke to us. Ceazer's owner is going through some serious health issues and she is not able to handle him. He is a big boy and is pretty excited to go on adventures. Ceazer would be difficult to place, being deaf, without some basic training and manners. His owner took him for his updated shots and a heart worm test and once that all came in as healthy arrangements were made for him to come to Lexington.
He rode well in the car. He just wanted to give kisses and explore.
So far, Ceazer is adapting to life in the kennel for his month long board and train. He doesn't have any manners, but they are working on it. We can still use help raising the funds to pay for his training. We have over half of the costs covered through a go fund me campaign, but need to get the rest together. Any little bit helps. After he is done at the trainer, he will need a foster home and a forever home that will understand the unique challenges associated with a deaf dog and is willing to continue working on his training.
