Nero

Throwing your arms around Nero’s neck is like hugging a cloud! Nero, a Charmin soft, 7-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog who weighs in the 60 lb. range is neutered, up to date on his shots, and housebroken. Nero was surrendered to the shelter when his family moved to Texas. Aside from his plush coat and sea blue eyes, this strikingly handsome fellow is unique among shelter dogs because Nero is deaf. Nero can startle easily if you surprise him from behind (understandable because he can’t hear you coming), and we don’t recommend him for a home with cats. Living since birth in a world of silence, Nero has learned to “read” faces and body language. This smart, sensitive dude would be a whiz at training with a vibrating or “paging” collar. One look into Nero’s eyes is all it takes to see the gentle wisdom of this precious soul. In the animal rescue world, we know there are adopters reading this description who have experienced firsthand the joy of loving a special needs animal. Perhaps you just discovered Nero on our website and now can’t stop thinking about him. Let us nudge you gently. Please reach out to us. Meanwhile, even though he has every reason to feel down and out as a homeless dog, Nero “rocks” in his exuberance for life, frolicking in the big back yard, smiling big and sniffing enthusiastically when he walks on leash, greeting visitors at his kennel gate, and curling up with a sigh on his dog cot at the end of the day. If you’re wondering how you can be a character in the “happily ever after” ending to Nero’s story, please contact Tri-County Animal Rescue Center on Facebook, or call 814-918-2032, or email: contactus@Tricounty-arc.org
