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.

And the rest is just adorable history. Check out this pair interact.

And you’ll see why dogs are mans best friend, but also little girls best friend. 😍 🐶 👩🏼

Awesome!!! sign language is powerfull!!!
child I am good to great mistaken for deaf...but there's more that I need to learn. @ButterflyBlu
@Cereal03 that's awesome!! I learned because there is a mother of a child in my studio who is deaf. I knew basic asl from a friend in college, but I needed more. So I learned. I'm very glad I did. I'm not great, yet, but I'm working on it!! @nicolejb I totally agree. We always had dogs and I always knew I wanted Levi to have dogs. We were lucky and blessed to get to keep Jazz when my husband passed. So he's always had her in his life. I wound up adopting my mom's dog when she got sick. Then we saved our dachshund. Never a dull moment... Lol
@nicolejb I just love how signing a conversation is like art and it flows like a painting. Deaf people are cool to talk to too...and its always a honor and compliment to have a Deaf person mistake you for a fellow deaf person. do you know sign language? are you deaf? anybody in your family deaf?
this hits home with me because I am studying Sign Language ✌
