This Deaf Dog Was Warning Her Family The Only Way She Knew How

When Ashley Shuckerow and her family decided to foster Dulce, a sweet-natured Pit Bull-Dalmatian mix, they had no idea she would rescue them from serious danger. Early one morning, Dulce, who is deaf, barked until Shuckerow stirred awake. The foster mom discovered that the family’s new furnace was leaking deadly carbon monoxide gas into their home.

Dulce’s persistent barking saved the day.

Despite Dulce’s heroics, she’s still waiting for her forever home, only because the Shuckerows want to keep fostering other dogs like Dulce.
