"To observe and feel the relationship the author had with Hogan and, in fact, with all of her dogs, was something not often seen between human and canine. It was as though Connie could step inside Hogan and know what he was thinking and feeling. Her and Jim’s response, in fact the entire crowd’s response, to Hogan running free for the first time ever is a moment that is frozen in time in my memory. Both my husband, Tom, and I knew that they had just given Hogan the gift of a lifetime.”

Deaf dogs are often destroyed, mistreated, or abandoned. Hogan’s Hope is the tale of a legendary deaf canine hero who, after being rescued from neglect, prevailed as he learned over 65 signs in American Sign Language and thereby providing the hope of life for many deaf dogs worldwide. His courage to overcome challenges and prejudice continues to give inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that accomplishment, success, and genuine love are truly possible. Through his lifetime of determination, his story offers us the promise that we are capable of achieving an amazingly “ordinary” life and a life away from isolation. From hardship to success, hope gave the inspiration for overcoming any challenge. His journey of valor reveals dreams come true and offers insight into the world of true faith, unconditional love, and endless hope. Indeed, it is a story that needs to be told. Read and gain immeasurable hope!
