One of these days, one of our Furry Friday dogs is going to go home with me. I love dogs and it breaks my heart to see some of the ones that visit us on Fridays. This week we got to meet Baymax. He is around 8 months old and is a pit bull mix. He is white and a real sweetheart. But what makes him even more unique is the fact that Baymax is deaf.

It isn't unusual for older dogs to lose their hearing but for a young dog like Baymax, it can prove to be quite a challenge. Fortunately, Baymax is super smart! He already knows several commands and is picking up more every day. He sat on command and gently took his treat everytime from us. Baymax gets along with other dogs and even puts up with cats! He does have a bit of separation anxiety but he is getting better.

If you want to learn more about our friend Baymax, he is available for adoption at Last Hope Animal Rescue in Cedar Rapids!
