Question White Pups being deaf

I had a litter and one of the solid white males is deaf. The sister to him my friend has and she just had a litter and we think on of her solid white puppies may also be deaf. Do you know if there is normally trouble with solid white pits?? Also the pups are young only 4 and a half weeks so when should they really respond to sounds good??

Thanks!!

solid white dogs are known to be deaf and blind there isnt much you can do but care for them as you would normally with a perfectly fine dog or the dog will become dominant over you because he senses ur sympathy

Do they have blue eyes? It is common fr white dogs, especially breeds that carry blue eyed genes to, to be deaf. In odd eyed dogs, it is common for the pup to be deaf on the blue eyed side. Very common in Dalmatians.

No they are still pups but their eyes are dark. I got a male from the litter and they are still young 4 1/2 weeks. The mom stopped feeding them and started attacking them so I went ahead and took him since I raise pits I knew how to care for him at such a young age. Mine seems like maybe he hears certain things but then again he doesn't others such as me hitting the wall, shouting his name, clapping hands. But then sometimes things like my cellphone ringing and the alarm going off he seems to sense something. I know their little ears have skin over them for a while....do u think he is deaf or not old enough to totally hear yet?? His sister is the same way. The others seem fine as of right now. The mother of the pups brother was deaf????/

I've always heard it was if they had solid white heads they were usually deaf, but that was mainly when dealing with Catahoula's

Sounds like way too many deaf dogs. I'd damn sure stop breeding all of them. Now.

Most white dogs are not deaf, it is generally statistically higher based on breed, for example many white GSD's are deaf, however many dalmatians, like I said are deaf. I can almost guarantee that an ALL white dog (of a breed that is not predominantly white)with one blue eye and one brown will be deaf in the ear on the blue eyed side. I have personally seen many solid white english bulldogs that have perfect hearing, so it is not all white dogs. The best advice I can give you is to not breed these deaf puppies. The sire and dam should not be bred to each other again. Also, if the pup seems to hear some things, but not much, take the pup to the vet and have it's ears checked, perhaps it has a blockage or infection.
Just be careful with homing any deaf dogs, as pits are not for the inexperienced to begin with, and a deaf dog of any breed is a real handful. I have seen deaf dogs perform amazingly in obedience.

I had one male deaf one out of a litter and he has not been breed. However these weren't my dogs and I didn't do the breeding. she told me she would have her fixed though...I hope she does she wasn't the best mother either.

I will have him checked...like I said he seems to hear somethings. But this litter was from a friend and she says she is getting the mother fixed I sure hope so. She really had no clue on breeding and they probably all would have died if not for me....wasn't a good experience. The breeding was an accident to begin with. Just hope it doesnt happen again!

Interesting post, I have looked at thousands of puppies to adopt in the past month or so and a suprising amount of the pure white dogs are marked "special needs" and they are deaf. Many of them were pitbulls and a few of them were great danes.

Its weird not sure why but it always seems to be white dogs. I think my puppy is either hard of hearing of deaf.

genetic defects....Ill never have a deaf dog again. no matter how noble it is to tryto take care of one, its not worth it. deafness is only part of the dogs problems. Its actually down right dangerous. I ve heard of breeders that avoid the color when breeding and cull when necassery. its a drag but responsible is responsible

It could be the different pitches the pup is hearing. You said the cell phone and the alarm clock. maybe you should get one of those dog whistles and see if he hears that.

I think I might....I know for sure he hears the alarm clock because his ears perk up and he jumps up looking around. But my tone he doesn't respond to at all. I don't know if he is stubborn or is hard of hearing almost deaf or maybe it will get better as he ages...he is only 5 weeks today. His momma stopped taking care of the puppies at 4 weeks and was attacking them (not my dog a friends dog). I knew I needed to go ahead and tae him since I breed myself and start him on foods. He is growing and doing well.
