How Sid managed to survive her facial injury is still a mystery. “Unfortunately, stray dogs and cats can't tell us much about their past. She's no longer able to control the muscles on that side of her face, and the muscles have atrophied and ‘drawn up,’ which gives her a dramatically different appearance between the two sides of her face,” Morris explains. “While we can't state definitively what happened to her, these types of injuries sometimes happen when a dog is attacked by another dog.”
Remarkably, Sid refuses to let her past get in the way of a good time. “It's hard to get pictures of her because her head is always moving,” Morris says.
After overcoming incredible odds, Sid deserves a loving family who can care for her.
“The ideal home for Sid would be one that recognizes the needs of a deaf dog,” Morris adds. “Training can be a challenge because verbal signaling doesn't work. They can also startle easily and are at risk off-leash because they can't hear approaching people, animals or vehicles.”
