Deaf Dog Is Best Friends With Little Girl

A deaf Great Dane and her adorable guide have pulled at the heartstrings of thousands.

Little 17-month-old Jennie has grown up with Great Dane, Echo who was born without hearing and limited sight.

Mum Marion Dwyer, 33, rescued Echo who was almost put down by her previous owner for her disabilities has since formed the most adorable relationship with Jennie.

Marion said: “Echo certainly does look out for her sister Jennie and always makes sure no one gets too close to her.

“She loves people and will put herself in front of Jennie to be pet first. If a stranger with a dog approaches she will stand or sit in front of Jennie to shield her, but not showing any aggression- just making sure she’s safe.
