LEARNING NEW TRICKS
The Observer/LAURA MACKIE-HANCOCK
Gail Hescock of La Grande works with "Allie," a deaf white Australian Shepherd, on hand signals this morning. Hescock, appointed by the Blue Mountain Humane Association, is the foster-parent for the young dog, and says Allie's hearing disability doesn't slow him down. In less than a week Allie has learned hand signals for sit, stay, lay down and come and would make a good therapy dog, Hescock says. Allie is fully adoptable through the BMHA.
