    It appears that you have a variegated weigela. This article will help you with pruning:

    To make it taller but fuller, simply trim the top only lightly.

    If you do not mind losing this year's blooms, it is ok to prune now. At the bottom of this article, there is a section on rejuvenation. That is the type of pruning you need to do: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/weigela/pruning-weigela.htm

    Yes, both of these plants are deer resistant. While deer are not fond of them, a hungry deer will eat anything. It is just these plants would not be their first choice.

    Try giving it some bone meal and I would keep the new growth on and only cut off the dead ones, this is just a suggestion as I don't have one but I'm thinking about getting one as I think they are beautiful and this is what I would do if I had one, good luck with your weigela

    I would consider transplanting your shrub in spring.
