Stella's owner Christina Hunger has developed a customised keyboard with buttons for 29 words - including 'outside', 'beach' and 'play' - and taught her pet pup to express herself by putting the buttons around the house.

She said: ''I just figured she needed another way to say the words she already knows.''

Stella's favourite words are 'outside' and 'play', while she isn't a fan of 'later' or 'inside'.

Hunger added Stella can sometimes combine up to four or five words in a row.
