Heather park success storyCordelia joined my family when she was about 4 months old, in November 2013.  She was born 100% deaf, and I didn’t realize until much later that she was also vision-impaired.

Despite these disabilities, Cordelia is the most loving, trusting, confident dog — and SMART.  She graduated puppy class with flying colors, and she knows SO much sign language — about 10 different signs!

Two years later, Cordelia and I live in Oakland, California with my husband Dave.  We drove cross-country with her, and now she is living her best life!  She goes on a daily hike with her “pack”, and loves the sunshine & beautiful weather.

Cordelia is proof that animals are miracles.  A sincere thank you to Animal Haven for taking her in.  She and her sister were the only 2 deaf pups out of a litter of 6 puppies rescued from Oklahoma.  I learned that the pups were originally brought to a shelter, but they “declined” the two deaf ones because they didn’t think anyone would adopt them. If Animal Haven hadn’t taken them in, I would never have met the love of my life.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!   #deafdogsrock!
