BIO:

Hi! I’m Emma! Sometime in 2012 I was locked in a car then busted by the police. Well, the window was busted and the police dumped me in a shelter; the people who left me in the car didn’t come to bail me out. I was stuck in the shelter for what seemed like ages until a kind lady came to my aid and fostered me with her own doggies. I liked foster living, much better than a shelter, and foster mom tried and tried to find me a forever home.

It took almost a year and finally the right picture—aka my pleading amber eyes–for someone almost half the country away to recognize I was the missing piece of her heart! Come get me, my eyes said! And Mom & Dad wasted no time fetching me!

By the end of my second month in my new home, I made my debut as a therapy dog and have been bringing smiles and comfort to everyone I visit weekly at our local health care facility!

But I will never forget my roots, those shelter days, the fear and noise, the wondering if when the door opens someone is coming for me, or not. And so I want to help other shelter inmates feel a little less alone in their cages, a lot more loved with any gifts I can give them.
