My name is Dottie, and I’m the most loyal and loveable stuffed animal you will ever meet. I am deaf, but it doesn’t bother me one bit. I can read lips AND I know SASL [Stuffed Animal Sign Language]. I also suffer from a condition called ‘Elephant Paws’, which is rare in stuffed dogs but is really common in stuffed elephants. The condition basically makes my legs kind of shaped like bellbottom pants! I was born this way, and my last owner thought it was cute… before she abandoned me.
