Deaf Man Adopts A Deaf Rescue Puppy, Trains Him Using Sign Language

It’s an unfortunate truth that oftentimes at shelters, dogs who have health issues or disabilities are overlooked for adoption. However, sometimes the perfect person will come along who is more than equipped to raise a puppy that requires a little extra attention. This was the case for one deaf puppy who was adopted by a deaf man—and the pair’s touching story will make your heart explode.

Nick Abbott was born deaf and recently adopted a 12-week-old deaf puppy from North Florida Rescue center.

The puppy, who Abbott has named Emerson, was rescued along with the rest of his litter at just eight weeks old.

The puppies were suffering from seizures and Emerson could not eat or drink. He also developed the parvovirus, a potentially fatal disease for puppies who have not been vaccinated. Emerson was able to pull through, but unfortunately, due to his health issues, he was the only puppy left behind when his siblings were adopted.

That was until Abbott showed up at the shelter.

“He came straight to me at the door and sat right away at my feet and stayed there,” Abbott told WABI. “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.”

Abbott says he first learned about Emerson and his condition on Facebook.

“Emerson is now a healthy, awesome puppy,” the Facebook post read. “We aren’t sure if Emerson was born deaf and visually impaired or if it was a result of the seizures but what we do know is that neither one of those bother him one bit. He gets around quite good because he can see some. He has been given an opportunity to live life, not once but twice, so he is gonna live it!”

Abbott felt a special bond with little Emerson right away and even began training him in sign language.

When Abbott signs the letter ‘S’ Emerson knows to sit down and when he draws a straight line, Emerson will lay down.

“We understand each other very well. I’d like to think it was meant to be. He’s special,” Abbott said.

The North Florida Rescue center later shared an update on Emerson and his new forever home.

“When Nick and his Mom walked into the house to meet Emerson, Emerson made a direct line for Nick and sat at his feet. That’s all it took. I was sold that this was fate, and these 2 belonged to each other,” the post reads.

“This boy deserved nothing short of a fairy tale ending and that is EXACTLY what he got!”
