We are presently considering taking on a 2 yr. old (female, spade) quite passive OES and a playful little 16 week old "deaf" (male) OES.
Anyone with experience with this type situation or information would be appreciated.
I had an OES from puppy for 14 years, so have had experience with the breed, although am learning all the time. And as the saying goes, any other breed is just a dog. (some may not like that statement).
I've searched for information on sites to no avail about deaf OES, must be rare and apparently something in the male gene.
Please reply, for this decision is being made soon. The Breeder is having the two interact for the next couple days so some information will be generated from that.
Anxious to hear. Molly and Max in New York
|welcome from a fellow NYer - if you register people can send you personal replies. we have a few people with deaf puppies and dogs who can advise you. I have nothing to add except that it is not rare, our breed is one of the top breeds for deafness and if you know someone who has bred a deaf dog they should make sure they don't repeat the breeding.
Again welcome lots of nice knowledgeable people on this forum.
|Kathy, Laura, and Nancy will be a good people to talk with... Kathy is picking up a deaf puppy today. I'm sure a couple of them will be by to reply.

Always supervise when the puppy and adult are together until their relationship has been well established.
|Welcome to the forum!!
I love deaf dogs and from my experience they
do better with a companion...just my opinion!
My last deaf dog was a female, the little bubby
I am getting today is a male.
Please feel free to ask me any questions!
I am off to the airport to see the new baby!!
