Deaf puppy finds perfect soulmate in new owner


One of a dog’s strongest senses is its hearing, but one puppy in Maine was born deaf.

His name is Emerson and he had a hard time finding a home due to his disability. Emerson finally found his soulmate in Nick Abbott.

“I was born deaf,” explains Abbott.

Nick saw a post about Emerson on a Facebook news feed. Just days later, the two met.

“He came straight to me at the door and sat right away at my feet and stayed there,” says Abbott with a smile. “So, you can tell he kind of picked me. And I knew right then and there that we would get along and understand each other pretty good.”

Nick is using visual commands to train Emerson. “The bond that we have is awesome,” Nicks says, breaking into a huge grin. “We understand each other very well.”
