If you catch Ludwig staring at you don't be alarmed it's just his super power. Where being deaf might be a limitation for most dogs it has made Ludwig more attentive to the world, while at that same time giving him the ability to live peacefully in his own world. He is not distracted by all the noise and chaos around him and you will catch him curled up in a little ball sleeping peacefully no matter what is going on.
His piercing blue eye will watch you waiting for you to "talk" to him because he has been taught American Sign Language and knows many hand signals. He is an incredibly smart dog and eager to learn. He loves cuddles and will fall asleep in your lap if you give him the chance. Being deaf means he has to be a little more cautious and selective about who he trusts so it takes some relationship building to get in with him. However, once he trusts you he will always be by your side, bouncing happily alongside you and checking in from time to time to make sure you are still there. If you are looking for a unique, one of a kind dog then give this handsome guy a chance!
