RSPCA Darwin received a call from a kind member of the public, who had heard of a family who were going to ‘take matters into their own hands’ with a puppy. The helpless 10 week old albino Great Dane cross was born deaf, so the breeders did not think he had any value. Once with RSPCA, a full health check confirmed that he was completely deaf, but that sure didn’t stop the little guy from desperately wanting to learn and please people. His foster carer fell in love at first sight, named him Wilbur, and immediately began training with hand signals – being deaf did not slow him down one bit. Inevitably, the foster carer couldn’t bring herself to give Wilbur up and adopted him permanently. He now does regular obedience training, knows more tricks at 10 months old than most dogs learn in their life, and lives just as full life as any happy, loving dog. Walk with Wilbur to show that all dogs are worth saving!
