Making friends isn’t always easy.
It can be even harder when you have a physical handicap that creates a barrier between yourself and those around you. Julia was born deaf, but she doesn’t let that stop her from making friends. In fact, her four-legged best friend Walter also just so happens to be deaf. The duo can be found spending countless hours playing together and communicating as only they know how.
You see, Julia began teaching Walter simple commands in sign language and it didn’t take this lovable pooch long to catch on.
Check out Julia and Walter’s communication skills in action.
