Emerson comes to work with his mom, where he serves as a mascot and greeter at the Houlton Humane Society. He's won himself a lot of fans, and Miller told the Bangor Daily News that she's known around town as "Emerson's mom."
Emerson also has 14,000 followers on his Facebook page, and the Millers have even received gifts, including a newer, lighter wheelchair for him. Emerson probably doesn't know why he gets any special attention, though.
"He is my heart, my baby boy," Miller said. "He has so much personality, and he doesn't know he's different."
