The video is really heart-melting and adorable to watch. 

The video of the dog was posted by the Instagram page thespecialakita, a dog account, on May 4 and it has received over three million views so far.

The signal means that the dog’s human is home. The dog understands the sign and goes running towards the door to meet its owner.

“Signing my deaf dog “dad is home”. P.S the signs are made up by me, as I don’t know actual sign language. But this sign has a meaning to us, as my partner likes to ride motorbikes and the sign refers to him starting the engine,” says the caption of the video.
