Many different people find themselves with deaf dogs. Some of them adopt (or buy) a dog, and find out after the fact that their dog is deaf. Some people adopt deaf dogs, even if they haven't had one before (because they want that dog, and are willing to learn what it takes to live with him or her). Others will deliberately look for a deaf dog, either because they have had one before, or because they want to give a home to a dog who needs it. If the only home that a deaf dog could be placed in was an "experienced" one, none of them would ever get homes. Experience isn't needed (everyone has to have their "first"), commitment to the dog is most important.
In contrast to other sports, the huddle is a specific tactic in Australian football , used by the team kicking in after a behind is scored , or some delayed stoppage. All players in the backline gather together about fifty meters from goal. Then, the players individually lead away from the huddle in all directions. The technique means that there will be several leading players, making it difficult to defend the first kick-in. It also allows teams to run set plays for the second and third kicks. The huddle was developed during the 1970s, and is still used today by many teams.
