Here's proof that there's truly someone out there for everyone.For10-year-old Julia, it's her dog Walter. Julia was born deaf, and so was her terrier/ chihuahua mix dog.

Pasadena Humane Society & SPCAa little while ago. It was the beginning of a very special friendship which has gone from strength to strength. Source: @Instagram
They are remarkably similar: Chrissy says that when Julia was a baby, she would smell her mother's neck because she couldn't hear her. And when Chrissy held Walter for the first time:
[H]e did almost the same exact thing. I remember just looking at him and I just - I knew that he was meant to be ours.
Now the pair are inseparable. Julia's mother, Chrissy, reveals that Walter will patiently wait for Julia to finish her homework...
