A man who was born deaf is now the owner of a sweet puppy who is unable to hear. He was adopted through the foster-based rescue, NFR Maine.

At 6 weeks old, Emerson was rescued from a shelter in Florida and later transferred up north. The black lab mix experienced seizures and an infection known as canine parvovirus. He eventually pulled through and was put up for adoption, said Lindsay Powers of NFR Maine.

He had such a rough start to life and he ended up with an absolute fairy tale ending.

They make the best duo!
