The fantastic foursome were born completely deaf, and need both the care every dog deserves and some patient mentoring.

This week is National Deaf Awareness Week, and the Dogs Trust has launched an appeal to find homes for their fantastic foursome.

The eight week old pups were brought to the Rehoming Centre covering Lanarkshire when their owner was unable to find homes for them.

The mischievous pups, two boys and two girls, have already become firm favourites with staff who have nick named them the sweetie pups, calling them Jelly Bean, Pear Drop, Cola Fizz and Bubble Gum due to their cute looks and affection natures.

Veterinary nurse Mary Ward said: “The puppies suffer from congenital deafness. This is not uncommon in white dogs and, sadly, often results in many puppies such as these ending up in rescue centres or abandoned.

“Fortunately for these pups Dogs Trust never put a healthy dog down.

“The full support of our behaviour team will be given to their new families to help train the pups to learn sign language to give them the best possible start in life.” If you would like to offer a home to one or more of the pups, you can contact the Rehoming Centre directly on 0141 773 5130 or visit www.dogstrust.org.uk
