Their favorite part of working for Imaginears is knowing that they are helping people reclaim quality of life. They are learning ASL but are nowhere near as good as Pork Chop yet!
Her name is Pork Chop and she is a French bulldog/Boston Terrier mix. She was born in August 2014 and she was born deaf. She enjoys greeting everyone that comes into the office and will give you plenty of kisses.
She knows some sign language and she is definitely part of our team at Imaginears. Come in and meet her anytime.
