A video of a young girl teaching her dog sign language has gone viral.

Julia was born deaf…and so was her dog Walter.

In the heart-warming video posted by the Pasadena Humane Society, Julia can be seen teaching the small dog commands in sign language.

The pair play together and are best pals, Julia’s mother tells the camera.

“She’s learned a whole other kind of love,” she said.

“When I first held Julia, since she couldn't really hear my voice she would smell my neck … and when I first held Walter, he did almost the same exact thing.”

"I remember just looking at him, and I just knew that he was meant to be ours,” she added.

The video ends with the touching message:

“Whenever you feel different or lonely, remember Julia and Walter. There’s someone out there for everyone.”

No, you’re crying.
