I want to start by saying I respectfully understand your reasoning on why you do not want us to adopt Frisbee and trust your professional opinion, but I am VERY determined to change your mind. As you may know my brother has special needs and because of that my family is very drawn towards other people and animals who have special needs. I look at my brother as a teacher. He has taught me SO many good things I can't even count on both hands and feet the ways he has improved my life.
With the proper care and training I feel like together me and Frisbee can demolish some big boundaries set for special needs dogs and dogs of her "bully" breed in general! Starting with the biggest factor, in my eyes anyway, she is still young which is a good starting point for training a stubborn but very smart staffy.
Secondly, I was reading an article on deaf dogs the other day and it stated that a deaf dog has a hard time establishing that "pack" bond
because they have trouble communicating with the other members of the pack. It said in MOST cases a deaf dog will establish a better bond with there human than with the other dogs in the family, mainly because of the hand gestures and treats they will receive for understanding the hand gestures. So I am very optimistic of that being the case in this situation. Third, I am fully prepared for the enormous amount of patience and responsibility that is required to raise and train a special needs dog.
With all that being said, I'll finish up by saying I can personally promise you that you guys will not find a better home for her than with me and Stephanie. Between the determination to prove people wrong about her "bully" breed and to break down those boundaries set for special needs dogs, and our love, respect, and appreciation for animals, I will guarantee this would benefit her as well as Stephanie and I!
I don't by any means want to rush into anything, BUT I do really want you consider us. It doesn't matter to me how long the process will take, the answer no just doesn't sit well with me as I fight for everything I believe in and NEVER give up on anything/anyone.
Thanks a lot Mike, for all your time!
