      My husband and I raised a double dabbled dachshund, Possum, she was born deaf and continued loosing her eyesight her entire life. Possum was a joy for both my husband and I. She lost 100% of her eyesight about 6 months before she died last December of cancer age 14. We will always miss Possum. Double dapple dachsunds are beautiful dogs but it should be against the law to breed to dappled dachshunds with any white on them! Possum was given to my daughter who did not know she was deaf. Possum fell in love with my husband and she came to live with us when she was about 3 months old. I know the family that owns Hope will be blessed for allowing Hope to become part of their family!

      Adorable! MOST dogs get around more by scent than anything, especially hounds. My dachshund was blind from diabetes, he got around great! They have bumper harness you can use, but I never had to. Any breeder that would put down a disabled animal should be banned from breeding, they obviously aren't doing it for the love of the breed. Hope is beautiful!!!

    19. Hollie Nelson

      A dacksund? Isn't it said "dash-hound"

      1. MyshunoGuy

        Hollie Nelson Pronouncing “Dachs” with a “k” sound is closer to how it is said in German.

    20. Dreyco 3514

    29. Khalil Kafieh

      I know the people in the comments are going to flip out when is say this But shouldn’t this dog be put down?

    30. Janice Koppenhaver

      I'd say she is more playful and explorative now that she is blind and deaf.

    31. Cadavis Dindo

      This dog is the bravest dog I've ever seen much respect to this Dog

    34. Aniska Langley

      Thanks to hope's owners

    35. Tokyo Rose

      Hope is so very beautiful! I love her black rubber nose! And her gorgeous little voice! I love her Daddy washing her in the bath, soooo adorable!!! You are such a loving family to rescue Hope and give her the loving home she needs and deserves. Blind pets just need a bit extra help, but they are still living souls, they need love, and have love to give. I have an elderly terrier. I just adapt to his needs, its no trouble, as he means so very much to me. When you go to the rescue to choose your dog, please give blind, elderly, frail and disabled dogs a chance, they need love too, and will certainly give it back. Bless hope, she has found such a loving family, i wish you all the happiness in the world xx

      So glad she found someone to love her, she is just beautiful, 😀😊😀 I have heard (also seen it on a tv show, can not remember which) that some people (blind/deaf) also people with blind/deaf animals will use the vibrations of things, ie. tap on the floor 3 times for outside (this one not necessarily for people, lol, but the idea is there), etc., I thought that was pretty cool, 😀😊😀

    43. Zach Ruston
