When a deaf and blind dog was advertised on Craigslist, little did she know she would soon become an internet star.
Plum, the Miniature American Shepherd, was originally advertised on the listings site with the caption: “Someone come get this deaf and blind dog before I euthanise her." Luckily, she was fostered before finding a loving home with caring owner, Aiden Mann and best friend Lola.
Since then, Aiden has had to learn how to adapt to Plum’s specific needs ranging from developing their own way of communicating, daily feeding and playtimes. "We have had to learn our own way of communicating,” Aiden told TeamDogs, “I had to think outside the box when it came to training her, but also had to learn to not shelter her and just let her be a dog.”
In fact, it was his response to the question: ‘How do you wake up your deaf and blind dog Plum?' from his three million followers, that quickly made Plum a TikTok sensation. The video starts with the caption, ‘People ask me how I wake up my deaf and blind pup without scaring her…’. It then shows Aiden softly blowing on Plum to gently wake her up, and although she's a little startled, she soon snuggles into her affectionate owner.
