Volunteers Teach Deaf Rescue Dog Sign Language So He'll Get Adopted (Photos)
Gordon the pit bull has been looking for a fur-ever home for more than a year.
But the sweet pup is sadly deaf and his medical condition has kept him from being adopted by the loving family he deserves.
Saddened to see poor Gordon remain orphaned, volunteers at London's Mayhew Animal Home where he lives embarked on a journey that might just change everything: They're teaching the crazy cute canine sign language.
Shelter volunteer Raffy Hamid told The Dodo,
Another volunteer, Eric Hugenberg, added,
Back in April, the shelter posted a picture of Gordon on their Facebook page.
The shelter hopes with his newfound skill, Gordon will finally find a loving family to live and grow old with.
Gordon now knows the sign language commands for "sit"…
...and he can even shake hands!
Gordon may be deaf…
...but he's a wonderful, sweet dog that deserves to be loved.
We wish lil' Gordon the best of luck and all of the tail-wagging happiness he could ever dream of.
