A deaf dog who was so badly behaved that he had to be re-homed several times, has been taken in by a sign language enthusiast and has been taught sign language.
'Horus' the dog was unruly and badly behaved after being abused as a puppy by his drug addict owners.
Then Rosie Gibbs, from Lockerbie decided to take him in and began using a basic form of sign language called Makaton, to train Horus.
He's now a well behaved dog who responds to 50 different sign language commands.
Rosie also helps to run the Deaf Dog Network, an online community for owners of deaf dogs.
