A Deaf Little Dog

Every year on her birthday (January 16) Inge Irby who runs small-dog rescue Second Chance & Happy Tails gives herself a very special present: she rescues a special-needs dog.

This year she rescued Girly, a deaf Jack Russell terrier who is 2 years old.Inge hopes she can find someone for the dog who can help her learn sign language.She is looking for ideas and help in finding a good match for this sweetie. I suggested she contact the League for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing that meets here in Clarksville and offers sign language classes for people at the United Way. They might be able to help place this dog with a good home.

Girly has had some training and knows how to sit. Inge says she's eager to please, though she is a bit nervous with other dogs. NO wonder, if they sneak up on her!

So, if you have any ideas or know someone who would love to take this little dog into their heart and home, please call Inge at 503-8300 or go to her Website at

Isn't this dog sweet? Who does she remind you of? HINES!!!!! I can't wait until Brett and Jeremy see her! :)Maybe Hines needs a bride! We can have a real WEDDING and reception as a fundraiser!

Happy belated birthday Inge!

What a sweet heart! Unfortunately, Hines is a confirmed bachelor-LOL. Everybody know that I wish I could take them all, but I have to be realistic and think of the dogs well being instead of my selfishness. But I know for a fact that God led this little darlin to Inge, and that there is a bright future in store for her.
Happy belated Inge!!

What a precious looking baby. Just look at that face! Argg wish I could take her. She would have fun playing with Zip (Rat terror) and Skeeter (Jack Russell) that belong to our neighbors. But my spoilt kitties would allow her in the house! Sniff...

Happy Belated Birthday Inge! I don’t know you personally and we have never met, but I would like to say a big THANK YOU for your continued dedication to the fur babies! Wish there were more people like you in the world!

I agree with all that B and Skeeter said about that sweet baby Girly! I pray she gets the most loving home ever!
Inge thank you too so very much all your wonderful loving care to the sweeties you rescue. I wish I could help you more too. I will send another donation as soon as I can!
And also a belated Happy Birthday from me too!

There is a comercial that just came on and each time I hear it I want to bawl. It says for every dog that gets adopted from the shelter there is one that doesn't, breaks my heart! I know it's the same for they cats too and I want them all to have homes and none ever be killed! We need a no kill pets world! Sometimes it is just all too much to think about!

Sandy, if this dog was black and white, and soot covered, and had only one eye, she would look like Daddy's dog, Little Bit. She had that muscular build too.

Brett, still no Internet at home. It's a long story and one of customer service hell. I did want to tell you that I had to edit your story because it was way too long for the space I'm allowed, but I think I did a good job. I will email it to you when I can, ok?

And Skeeter, you know your cats were getting used to Minnie! They be find with a dog some day. Find an old one to adopt that mostly lays around!
