These amazing bull terriers went viral on TikTok after their human posted a video of them reacting to their human signing “treats.”

PeeWee, one bull terrier is hearing impaired, and so is his foster sister Faith. In the video, both sit patiently, looking up at their human @deafdogofmn, waiting for her signs. Through American Sign Language, she signs the words  “treat,” “dad” and “go” and points up the stairs. PeeWee immediately knows what she means and dashes up the floor with his sister Faith not far behind. The video has racked up over 10.4 million views and over 2,000 comments.

@deafdogofmn has quite the following on TikTok with nearly 200,000 followers who love to watch the pups’ understanding of sign language. @deafdogofmn is also teaching her foster puppy Faith sign language, and she has gotten down “kennel,” “spot” and “down.”


The head tilt cracks me up every time! But it’s showing me she is watching me 🎉🥰 #deafdog #deafdog#tiktokdog #deaf #asl #signlanguage #signing #signwithme #themoreyouknow💫 #learning #fostering #rescue #dog #viral #trending #fyp #foryou #fypシ

“The second dog is like: “Don’t know what she is saying, but Imma follow my sibling here” 😂,” one user commented.

“That’s incredible that he’s learned ASL!” said another.
