Hearing Dogs for Deaf People
Ben Fogle appeals on behalf of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, a charity providing specially trained dogs to alert deaf people to danger signals.
TV presenter, writer and adventurer Ben Fogle makes an appeal on behalf of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, a charity his father, Dr Bruce Fogle, helped set up thirty years ago. The charity offers greater independence, confidence and companionship to deaf people by providing specially trained dogs to alert them to everyday sounds and danger signals.
The film features Sue, who has been severely deaf for most of her life. Without her family around to help her she became very isolated and depressed. But since the charity paired her with hearing dog Jasmine her life has completely changed. Jasmine not only helps Sue with alarms and signals, but she has increased her self-confidence too.
