Deaf Dog’s ‘Bark’ Is Her Take On What She Has Only Seen And Never Heard

Reggie was adopted into the Kelly home as a deaf pup, and it’s believed she’s been deaf since birth. And because of this, she’s never actually heard a bark in her life. But she knows what one looks like! Normally a very quiet dog, Reggie decided one day to show what she thinks a bark is, and it took her mom a second.

Lindsay Kelly at first thought it was a cough or a sneeze, but as Reggie kept it up and continued to look at Mom, she realized she was trying to get her attention and communicate! “Good bark!,” Lindsay tells her dog in the TikTok below. 🙂

Reggie has found her “voice,” and it’s adorably unique! She’s been using the fake bark to talk to Mom ever since and is so proud of herself for figuring it out. 🙂
