Emerson was rescued at 6 weeks old and his caretakers learned her was deaf. Abbott applied to adopt Emerson after seeing a Facebook post with the pup’s picture. Now Emerson has a forever home.

Abbot even teaches Emerson sign language. “If Nick reaches up and shakes his earlobe, Emerson will bark – it’s so cute,” said Abbott’s mom Richelle. If this story doesn’t warm your heart, we don’t know what will. Share with everyone to spread the joy.
