Are you ready to learn something new? Class is in session, and Noelle is ready to be your star pupil. You’ll need to learn hand signals to communicate with this beautiful dog, because Noelle is deaf. But she’s as intelligent as she is playful. And her adorable one-ear-up, one-ear-down appearance will make sure you’re smiling throughout every lesson. She wants to make a trade: If you learn hand signals, Noelle will be your faithful companion for life. She’s your Adoptable Pet for the week of February 17, 2014.
