  1. I volunteer at a rescue where there is a young (1-2 yrs.) mostly pitbull female who is deaf. She is a fawn brindle, including her ears -the only white is around her muzzle running up between her eyes & on her chest. She definitely has a head tilt, has had this since I’ve known her, at least 3 months now. She seemed a bit clumsy at first. Vet confirmed deafness & thought her right hind leg may have an issue, likely developmental. I have been getting her out for playtime in a large yard about twice a week for at least 1/2 hour.(Wish I could do more!) Her attitude is great, she likes to climb on things out there- like the chairs and seems to have enough balance to cope with things when they wobble. She enjoys running around with the Jolly ball swinging it by the rope which requires some coordination, nothing seems to faze her, but maybe she has more heart than “grace”, and just powers her way through things…and still the head tilt. Do you think this is something that should be pursued further with a Vet? (which I would have to pay for as rescue is always short on funds)
