(CBS) - Now for a truly heartwarming story. Alice, an 8-week old Springer spaniel, was abandoned by a breeder for being deaf. She was discovered in an animal rescue shelter in Ireland by Marie Williams and Mark Morgan, who are deaf themselves.

"We were thinking about getting a dog but when we saw Alice was deaf we just couldn't believe it," Williams told "She was so beautiful and the fact that she was deaf just made us fall in love with her even more - we knew that she would fit right into our family."

Watch the video below to see their efforts to teach Alice sign language.
