Chained to a fence in New York City, in freezing weather, Blue was found and brought to ASPCA’s Canine Annex for Recovery and Enrichment (CARE) rehab center. Not long after she was there, the staff realized that Blue was deaf and decided to pull a group of specialists to help train her.
Since Blue is unable to learn basic commands through hearing, they decided to teach her sign language. She quickly took to her training and learned more than 25 commands all through hand signals. For example, they use thumbs up for “good job” and a scooping motion for “sit.”
Blue will soon be up for adoption, so look her up. She’ll be the most intelligent member of the family and also the most loving.
