A Las Vegas 8-year-old and his new puppy have a lot more in common than you might think.
Maxson was born with microtia and as a result, has a tiny ear on one side.
4E Healing Hearts, a nonprofit that connects service animals with forever homes, found the perfect match for the 8-year-old, a Goldendoodle born with the same tiny ear.
The puppy’s name is—Nemo—who like the character, was born a little different.
Maxson says he might change the puppy’s name to “honey” or " daisy.”
