Deaf Dogs for the Hearing

The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Green has come up with a novel way of teaching deaf Staffordshire Terrier Gordon to communicate. By teaching him sign language. Gordon ended up in the rescue centre after he was found abandoned on the streets of Brent. 

The two year old Staffie can't hear a thing but is quickly picking up commands by body language, hand signals and reading faces. 

He compensates for his lack of hearing with his huge personality!

Now Gordon's looking for a loving home, but he's not the only one.

If you're interested in adopting any of the animals you saw in the video, you can find out more on the Mayhew Animal Home website.
