Esco is an average dog from Melbourne, Australia. However, what sets him apart from other dogs is his ability to communicate with his owners using a unique language that he has developed himself.
This language consists of a series of barks, whines, and howls that Esco uses to convey his needs and wants to his humans. For example, a short sharp bark means “I’m hungry,” while a sustained howl means “take me for a walk.”
Esco’s owners, John and Julie Austin, say that they first noticed that their dog was using sounds to communicate with them when he was just a puppy. For example, when he wanted to go outside to pee, he would scratch at the door and make a little whining noise. Over time, these noises became more distinct and Esco began using them more and more frequently to get his point across. The Austins say they now have no trouble understanding what their dog is trying to say to them.
Interestingly, Esco is not the only dog who has developed his own form of communication. In 2017, another dog named Chloe from the UK made headlines after her owner taught her to use a set of 50 different words in order to communicate her needs. It seems that these clever canines are making us humans realize that we might not be the only ones who can learn to speak new languages!
Dogs are truly man’s best friend—they provide us with companionship, loyalty, and love. Now it seems they may also have something else to offer us: the ability to learn new languages! Esco the dog from Melbourne, Australia has become famous for his ability to communicate with his owners using a set of barking, whining, and howling noises that he has developed himself. This just goes to show that dogs are much more intelligent than we give them credit for! Who knows what other amazing things they might be capable of?
