In March, WCAX News introduced viewers to a special dog named Hogan. The 2-year-old terrier was living at the Humane Society of Chittenden County after his family lost their home and could no longer afford to keep him.
What sets Hogan apart from the rest of the pack is one thing: he's deaf. In March he knew some signs and signals, but his training couldn't really take off without the help of a non-shock vibration-only collar. However they cost about $250, which is a steep price tag for the already stretched Humane Society.
Luckily this story has a happy ending. Robyn Lane, the Canine Supervisor at the Humane Society of Chittenden County, has an update on where Hogan is today and how the community has helped the shelter help more animals than they thought possible.
