Non-verbal boy finds a companion in the family of a deaf dog

A 6-year-old boy who was adopted at birth and uses sign language to communicate has found an ally in a deaf Boxer to feed his family. Brandi Guillet, the unknown boy of the mother, shared a picture of the two snuggled on the couch with the Facebook group, Deaf Dogs Rock.

“We are promoting a beautiful deafie boxer girl (soon to be adopted!),” Guillet wrote on Sunday’s post. “She is amazing with my son. She is the most gentle, loving woman ever. The most BEAUTIFUL part of this approval, is my son and his dog can talk!”
