Deaf Girl Adopts A Special Needs Puppy And Teaches Him Sign Language

Being deaf comes with many challenges. But one deaf little girl named Julia found a friend in a puppy, Walter, who also happened to be deaf. From the moment they met, Walter and Julia’s friendship blossomed into something truly beautiful!


It wasn’t how Walter played that got their attention, it was the way he reacted to them. “When I first held Julia, since she couldn’t really hear my voice, she would smell my neck – and when I first held Walter, he did almost the same exact thing. I remember just looking at him, and I just knew that he was meant to be ours. They’re the same,” Julia’s mother explained. That’s when Julia and her mom decided to bring Walter home!


Since Walter can’t hear, Julia has been practicing sign language commands so he becomes a well-behaved pup! She knows that a lack of hearing can’t hold them back, and that the possibilities are endless when they’re together.
