If you’re looking for the perfect sweet, lazy, cuddle-up-on-the-couch-with-you dog: you’ve found him! Dewey is a 2 year old Double Merle Aussie mix. He is completely deaf and partially blind, but he doesn’t let that bring him down. He is extremely smart and picks up new training cues quickly. He is such a sweetheart and will sit in your lap for hours and get love if you let him. Dewey definitely has some separation anxiety (we get it, it’s scary when you can’t hear anything!), so he would do best in a home with someone who is home often. Dewey likes to play every once in a while, but is pretty lazy and sleepy overall. He would do well in a home with another doggy friend to show him the ropes, but probably wouldn’t do too well with high-energy dogs because he startles easily. He does also try to “herd” his foster sister a lot. Dewey really seems to be afraid of leashes for some reason - he’ll let you put it on, but will just pancake and not walk anywhere - so he would also do best in a home with a fenced in area (even a small one) for him to go potty. He is crate trained, but has never showed interest in any destructive behaviors at his foster mom’s house, so he could likely be given free reign of the house if you prefer. Overall, Dewey is a happy camper if he has love, hot dogs, and a comfy bed to lay on. He can’t wait to meet you!  Apply at www.lolasrescue.com show less
