Don't worry -no one did anything to hurt Gromit’s ears, He and Sid are La Mancha goats, and the lack an external ear (or pinnae) is a trait of this particular breed. He can hear just fine — especially if it’s the sound of food being prepared or the rattle of a door being opening.

Gromit and Sid are both very friendly and curious goats. They came to us after their owner could no longer care for them. They lured me away from the job I was supposed to be doing. Instead, I got to know these happy healthy unique-looking guys.

They are still pretty new at the Sanctuary so their adoption profiles are not ready. If you want to adopt these fine fellows, comment below and I’ll put you in touch with adoptions. You can be part of their story by becoming a sponsor today! Your gift will help provide food (and treats) to Gromit and all his friends living at the Sanctuary today.
