Angelyne, the Amazing Deaf Cattle Dog Performs for KADEP

Angelyne, an Australian Cattle Dog was born bi-laterally deaf. Thanks to Angelyne’s exceptional intelligence and the dedication of her owner, Eric Melvin, she knows and responds to over 40 different hand signals and non-verbal commands. Regarding their afternoon performance, Angelyne’s story of perseverance was inspirational and it was passionately communicated by Eric to the KADEP community. Following Eric’s speech, Angelyne performed many tricks including jumping through four hula hoops. The show ended with clients getting a chance to pet Angelyne and get a photo taken with her. The clients and staff of KADEP were very happy with Angelyne and Erik’s visit and want to thank them again for coming out and giving us a great show. Thanks again Angelyne and Erik!!!
