Dog wants to hold hands - level 2
The skin condition of a dog called Pinky seriously affected her ears, and doctors had to operate on her. They removed one ear canal and now the dog is deaf.
The dog is now in an animal’s hospital in London. The hospital staff, who is taking care of Pinky, notice something unusual – the dog always wants to hold somebody’s hand. When there is somebody near her, she lifts herself and wants to hold hands. The dog loves this so much that the staff has become very good at typing with one hand!
Pinky is now looking for a new home where she can get all the love that she needs.
Difficult words: affect (to hurt/damage), deaf (unable to hear), staff (a group of people who work somewhere).
