The friendship between a boy and his dog is getting a lot of attention on social media.

Brandi Guillet shared a photo of her son and a boxer named Ellie embracing each other.

“I adopted my son at birth knowing he had a genetic disorder,” Brandi wrote on Facebook. “He is now 6 and non-verbal but uses sign for communication.”

Guillet says Brandi is the perfect addition to their family. They plan to officially adopt her soon.

“She is the most gentle, loving girl ever,” said Guillet. “The most beautiful part of this adoption is my son and his dog can actually talk to each other! I highly encourage adoption of deaf dogs.”
