Signed! This is what happens when people think of dogs as property.
Signed. There is nothing wrong with them, their ears just don't work. These same people would probably be horrified at the idea of killing a person because s/he was deaf. One more double standard.

signed, my 14 year old Baggy is almost deaf now, but she is the same sweety as always, why should a deaf dog die??
My old Wasti was deaf when I took him home from the shelter. He was such a sweet boy !! And the last year before he went over the rainbowbridge he was nearly blind, too. But he ENJOYED his life so much !!!!!!!!!!!
Signed - these bigots should not be looking after anything with a pulse. Dog owner syndrome again - certainly not dog lovers.
Having recently rescued a 'Lethal White' (Lethal for them, as they are usually put to sleep at birth) I feel I can shout out for the 'disabled dogs' who find themselves under threat of termination due to the false beliefs (including vets) that they will have no quality of life.
Jess and her two brothers were born deaf and partially sighted, in varying degrees, in an otherwise unremarkable litter. Due to the 'accidental' cross breeding of two Merle's - Border Collie and Bearded Collie - these three pups faced an uncertain future until their owner decided that she would go against her vets advice and see if they could be rehomed.
Eventually Jess came to me and she is the most playful, mischievous, greedy, normal puppy you could find. Nothing phases her, she is brave and inquisitive and makes us howl with laughter at her antics every single day. She is now eight months old and who knows how long she will live for, she has the same odds as any other dog, but every day is a bonus. Especially when I think how I would never have had her love if it wasn't for luck and a brave decision.
This is her blog.
The Dalmation Club of America should take heed!
Signed. This is rediculous. Just cause a dog is disabled in some way, doesn't mean it should be put down. What idiots.
Thanks very much my dear friends for supporting this petition which is close to my heart !!
signed. Dalmatians are wonderful dogs; I had one, a rescue, for many years. Spay and neuter, do not kill!
