Deaf Girl Teaches Deaf Puppy Sign Language

A shelter puppy who was born deaf has found the perfect match in 10-year-old Julia. Julia was also born deaf, and made fast friends with Walter, a Terrier and Chihuahua mix, when they met at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA in January. She’s sharing her knowledge of sign language with the puppy, and so far she’s taught him the signs for how to sit, ask for food and respond to his name. Last week, a sweet video of the two was shared on Facebook and went viral. “I remember just looking at him, and I knew that he was meant to be ours,” recalls Julia’s mom, Chrissy, of meeting the now 7-month-old puppy. — Read it at CBS News
