Letter from new owners of Mischa, a deaf dalmation recently adopted from RSPCA Sydney Yagoona.


Recently my fiance and I came to your Yagoona shelter, looking for a dog. We found a beautiful dalmation by the name of MISCHA, and it stated on her cage that she was deaf.

We left the shelter without her, but the whole of the next week we couldn't stop talking about the beautiful dog we had seen and we wondered if she was still there. After contacting the shelter by phone, we arranged to come back to view her again. She was asleep in her cage.

We were sold - we had to have her! So we decided to adopt her and take her to her new home.

I am pleased to tell you how well she has fit in. As a deaf dog it takes her a little longer to learn than a hearing dog, but we wouldn't have her any other way. She had her first ever visit to the beach and even though we kept her on the lead, she loved the water and loved playing in the waves.

I have attached some photos of Mischa at her new home [see above].

Thank you for the work you do, and for saving a dog like our Mischa.

Jo, Adam & Mischa.

  1. We adopted Zack (a deaf Dalmatian) from the Vancouver Animal Shelter in 2005.

    In the beginning it was a bit more challenging with him being deaf, but as with Mischa's owners, we wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

    Sadly Zack's last day came on August 19th, almost 5 full years after we brought him home. He was a wonderful dog and is missed dearly.

    The link I've included is to a blog post I wrote in remembrance of Zack.
