Hogan's Hope is the inspirational story of a deaf dog who escaped death during the time when the prevalent belief was that deaf dogs needed to be destroyed. It is the tale of a legendary deaf canine champion who endured severe abuse and prevailed as he turned upside down the myths of deaf dogs being dumb, difficult to train, and harmful. Hogan learned over seventy words in American Sign Language, engaged in normal puppy activities, and provided the hope of life, not death for deaf dogs worldwide. Through perseverance and enduring hope, Hogan's courage provided inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that success and genuine love are truly possible. This heroic deaf dog continues to reveal that by choosing hope, anyone's dreams can come true, and the world can be filled with steadfast faith, pure joy, and unconditional love. It's a story like none other.
Connie Bombaci, a retired educator, is resolute in her love for animals, belief in the goodness of all God’s creations, and desire to provide encouragement no matter what the challenge. She appeared with Hogan on Oprah, Dateline, Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures, and Amazing Tails and lives with her family in Connecticut.
"Once you choose hope, ANYTHING is possible."
- Christopher Reeve
