This is typical Emma face.
I have adopted her when she was 2 and she is a princess ever since.
But prior to that she did have a difficult start to life – she was born homeless in Louisiana, USA to a little dachshund X mother who bravely looked after her 8 puppies alone until they got rescued by BARK when the puppies were 6 weeks old. Emma, along with her mother, and brothers and sisters, finally found roof over her head and food in her bowl. It’s not easy to find a forever home when there are so many other homless cats and dogs waiting for homes… Emma’s mother got adopted in Louisiana, and so did one of her brothers, but after 6 months of waiting in the BARK’s non-kill shelter, the 7 remaining puppies made a trip all the way to Canada to find home. I adopted Emma’s sister, Tika at that time and Emma got adopted by somebody else. Unfortunately for Emma, she got returned to the shelter a few months later. Once again she was re-adopted and unfortunately once again returned back to the shelter… When in October 2012 I found out that she is back at the shelter for the third time, I decided to step in and adopted Emma. I was not allowed to keep two dogs in my condo, so Emma found permanent home with my parents. She couldn’t find a better home! :)
Emma may have an underbite, short bowed legs and lots of psychological issues, but she finally has a forever home. She has been with us for almost 6 months and she is here to stay.
Please adopt pets wisely. Dogs are not toys that someone can get bored with. They need attention, they need love, and care. They need training, and vet visits. They need to be groomed and walked despite rain or snow. They need toys and your time. Their food, and medical bills may be costly. They can get sick. They can damage your furniture, carpets and shoes…. They can shed. Some people may be allergic to dogs and other pets. They cannot stay alone when you take vacation… Are you ready to adopt a dog or any other pet?
