Hi I'm Bea and would love to meet you!
Foster Mom says I'm special, she isn't saying that out of pure adoration, I really am special, I am hearing impaired (deaf).
Let's get to know one another, I know my perfect home is out there for me:
I do prefer the company of humans, with my hearing impairment I am unsure of other animals (can be startled easily).
I am vocal, I loooove to talk. I communicate with my sounds, there is a sound for everything. Foster Mom has been learning ASL and teaching me, I am a quick learner and have already amassed a collection of words/commands.
With my impairment, I need time to adjust to new things. I tend to not turn away from new things (deaf) like dogs, cats, rabbits etc as I need to keep my eyes on them. If they don't make the first move, I will begin backing away.
You know how they say when one sense is gone the rest increase....well, I have the best nose around town, ok that may be a stretch, but I can smell my BFF (a human) when he is a few blocks away and I know play time is coming.
I show my love with touch, I'm a tall gal, can I place a paw on your shoulder and give nibbles and kisses to you? Brace yourself, I'm 120lbs of love. If you are sitting down, my head will find your lap, I love scratches along my long neck. Wait a minute....maybe I'm a giraffe??
Are you home a lot? I do prefer my humans nearby often, with not being able to hear things I can get anxious, seeing that I use my nose and sight (taking cues from my humans) to monitor everything. I do prefer adult humans and a detached home, my backyard is a safe place for me to chase the bugs. I will provide you with endless smiles and laughter as you watch me prance around, then we can cuddle. Ever cuddle a giraffe, haha.
