Deaf Terrier Follows Owner’s Commands Using Sign Language

This is the endearing moment a deaf puppy who was given away by five previous owners because he couldn’t follow instructions responds to sign language.

Ten-month-old staffy Ivor was unwanted at all of his previous homes because owners could not cope with the fact he couldn’t hear. But the pooch has now been taken in by a new owner who has taught him a wide range of tailor-made hand signals to help him understand commands.

The heartwarming clip shows Ivor sitting, lying down and ‘staying’ while his owner Ellie Bromilow signs instructions to him.
