What a cutie! He definitely looks like a Buddy - a lot like my sweet dog. What a perfect namesake!

hes going to be more of a challenge for me with his being deaf for his training, at least i can sympathize seeing as i have rather poor hearing in my left ear we can be deaf together lol

Personally I think the name he has is cute...But maybe a new name would be better for him. I like Axel but what about something like Hurricane or Twister? I can get why they called him Stormy though. He looks like a storm cloud.

I heard with deaf dogs they can learn to understand sign languege. (I read a story about a girl who taught her dog how to understand it and used a fan to wake her up instead of patting her on the head.)

I wish you luck with him. He's adorable I love his grin.

well its going to be a challenge teaching him but i pretty much use hand signals for everything with our other pup. and i am always being growled at by my boyfriend for stomping, im just a heavy walker so theres no worry about me startling him lol.

im thinking Cooper or Dusty i have to pick a name my bf will like too. the pure bred staffy pup we wanted to call diesel but his dads dog so he called him Gus:

the first is Gus at 6 weeks old (bout October 9th)
then Gus just before Christmas

Also: Gus is so cute!
