Neko is our KMUN, THE ASTORIAN, 94.9 THE BRIDGE, WARRENTON KIA, HITS 94.3 KRKZ, and CLATSOP NEWS Pet of the Week for the week of November 10.

This is one special guy – Neko is a seven year old Labrador mix who is deaf but doesn’t let that slow him down. Since he has joined us, he has blossomed: a smart, spritely bundle of snow-white fur with mahogany spots. He loves our outside play yard, eagerly learning new skills and jumping in the pool while giving us his adorable, smiley head-tilt as if saying: “I’ll take that treat now…what are we going to do next?!” Neko is an expressive, sweet boy who needs a fenced yard to chase tennis balls and carouse – he loves to trot behind you and walk through your legs with his prize toy in his mouth…which is a challenge as he’s around 70lbs. He loves neck and ear rubs and dances when you scratch his back and hips. Neko would benefit from joining a family who has experience with deaf dogs. He learns hand signals quickly and is very perceptive, a real love bug waiting to meet you. He’ll need to meet any potential family members including dogs and would be happiest as the only dog in the house.
