Deaf child communicates in sign language with abandoned dog

10 Months old Baxter, an abandoned dog from New Mexico in the US was moved from shelter to shelter before being adopted by a loving family with a deaf child called Neeva (4). The hugely insecure animal warmed to Neeva, and Neeva started 'teaching him sign language'. The mutt sits and stays on her sign commands, and is reportedly learning more commands.
