Picture of Devon

Devon

Hearing dog Devon was born at

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People’s training centre in Buckinghamshire on 16 August 2006, after his mum Zola (named after Zola Budd) was brought to the Charity’s headquarters from a rescue centre in the Republic of Ireland.  There were six pups including the other Gabit dog, Lewis. Devon’s name

was inspired by sprinter Marlon Devonish. Devon was a sociable pup, though a little nervous of large towns.

He now lives happily with his deaf recipient in – appropriately - the small Devon town of Barnstaple!  The staff member who assessed Devon in his

‘final’ (when a hearing dog graduates to fully qualified status) was most impressed because as Devon was leading his deaf owner to the sound of

the cooker timer, the phone rang. Devon completed the cooker timer alert, and then continued unflustered with an alert to the ringing telephone!

Lewis

Hearing dog Lewis was born at Hearing

Dogs for Deaf People’s training centre in Buckinghamshire on 16 August 2006, after his mum Zola (named after Zola Budd) was brought to the

Charity’s headquarters from a rescue centre in the Republic of Ireland.  There were six pups including theother Gabit dog, Devon.  Lewis was named after sprinter Mark Lewis

Frances.
 In Lewis’ diary with his socialisers

there’s an entry describing him as ‘very friendly and very wriggly’!  andnow Lewis is working for a deaf lady in Derbyshire, and really making a difference to her life.  She had previously suffered from agoraphobia, but Lewis gives her the confidence and

motivation to go out, enabling her to live more independently.  He’s as friendly as ever, but a little less wriggly now he has grown up.
