    Just call him something easy to yell across an oval.

    Hyacinth is a bad name for a dog.

    A friend recommended choosing an adjective and maybe something weather related. So her dogs are Rosie (And her cleaning lady is Rosa - arrghhh), and Halley (after the comet after the astronomer).

    So I guess she meant "Stormy" or "Misty" or "Sunny" etc. My dog gets called "Snowy" or "Snowflake" quite often. "Flakey" is tempting. "Bucket" is also tempting but could be misheard by others on the oval.

    I know about four dogs and one person named Cooper - so that's very popular too. And a lot of dogs and people called Ben or Benny...

    I dont give a crap what the reasons are, the pup is deaf not a mutant. There is no reason to put him down.

    Good on the breeder for being responsible but that coe of ethics sucks.

    My dogs are taught hand signals at the same time as vocal commands. By the time they are adults they respond to both.

    IMO a desexing clause (or desexing before homing) would be have exactly the same outcome as putting him down.

    Disgusting IMO...there is no justification for it IMO...its not like hes been born with no legs

    If the point is that you arent getting the pup you had your heart set on, yep that really sucks. However, you will bond with th new pup you have chosen, and it will be right...everythign happens for a reason.

    If the point is something to do with it being "right" to put down a deaf dog then I compeletely disagree. That's not life "sucking sometimes"...I just cant think of any reason putting a DEAF dog down is acceptable to me. If he only had two legs or couldnt eat then yea...but a dog can still live a logn happy life without being able to hear

    I must agree that putting down a dog only to protect the reputation of the breed and the breeders seems rather immoral. If you cannot find a suitable owner for a pup like that, you would have no choice of course. Not many would take on a deaf dog, I know I wouldn't at this stage of my life. But to do it out of principle is a different matter.

    I agree...

    I know a couple of completely deaf dogs (not mine - though they do have selective hearing, no tlooking at Pippi in particular) and they are both very active and you woudnt even know they are deaf except when you see the owner stomp the floor or flick the light switch to get their attention
    And I dont think it protects the breeds reputation at all....everyone knows dallies are prone to deafness. What will affect the rep is when joe blow finds out thats what they do with the deaf puppies
