<b>Abandoned deaf puppy learns sign language</b><br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz28iEGwPtw&feature=player_embedded</a><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">(CBS) - Now for a truly heartwarming story. Alice, an 8-week old Springer spaniel, was abandoned by a breeder for being deaf. She was discovered in an animal rescue shelter in Ireland by Marie Williams and Mark Morgan, who are deaf themselves. The video above shows their efforts to teach Alice sign language.<br><br>
"We were thinking about getting a dog but when we saw Alice was deaf we just couldn't believe it," Williams told newslite.tv. "She was so beautiful and the fact that she was deaf just made us fall in love with her even more - we knew that she would fit right into our family."<br><br>
We love happy endings at The Feed, and it's hard to imagine a better outcome than the loving home Alice has found. We wish her and her new family all the best.<br><br><br><br>

Aww. That is the perfect match - they will treasure her all the more because she is deaf.<br><br><br><br>
Footnote: This is one of the things I hate about breeders - most of them will not take responsibility for the animals born with an abnormality. I see it all the time on the parrot boards - breeders asking someone to take on the birds they can't sell because of abnormalities. And those are the *responsible* breeders - most just kill anyone with a birth defect.

I have been looking on a lot of rescue centre websites recently and it seems like quite a few of the animals are just so called "mistakes" as a result of deliberate breeding.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

Some of the best and sweetest animals I've ever cared for have been deaf or blind.
