Neeva is a young girl who was born Deaf, and uses American Sign Language to communicate.
Baxter the dog was a shelter dog who was living in an overcrowded rural shelter in August, and had to leave the shelter because the noise and commotion were all too much for him.
Neeva’s family adopted Baxter. And as the pair grew older, Neeva taught Baxter sign language. He knows how to sit, stay, and go all in hand signs. Neeva also communicates with her best friend by signing his name to get him to come.
