About iHop (deaf)

Distance: 81 Miles
Ihop was picked up as a stray by animal control in 2012.   He was 15 weeks old at the time and had a badly injured leg, which needed to be amputated.   BullyPaws accepted him in the program and he has been with the same foster family since then. Ihop is also deaf, but he is an intelligent boy and has learned hand signals for come, sit and down. Ihop is a very sweet dog who loves life.  He would do much better in a rural setting.  Urban environments tend to give him too much stimuli to react off of.  He loves riding on ATV's, tractors and riding mowers.  He is a great dog for a farm, as he is good with livestock and farm animals.  He does get along with other dogs and cats, but behavior needs to monitored closely for potential triggers.  He does not hear vocal warning signs from other dogs and his style of play is not always well received.    We suspect iHop suffers from some sort of PTSD.  We feel he would make a  wonderful companion to someone who has also suffered traumatic experiences.  He loves life despite his disabilities.  iHop's missing leg does not slow him down.  He loves to be around people and is a very good companion.
