Emma came to us from a small rural shelter where she had been picked up as a stray and never claimed. She is an older gal, thought to be 10-12 years of age. She has been started on Rimadyl and joint supplements and is very spry and active for her age, as well as being very playful. She is fully housebroken, seems to know several basic commands and gets along very well with her foster brother and resident cats. She loves meeting new people and never barks! We started her vaccines as well as performing geriatric screening bloodwork and having laboratory evaluation of a large mass on her neck which will most likely need surgical removal. We will accept applications for her, but she will not be available for adoption until her health needs are all met. More info and photos can be found in her photo album on our Facebook page.
UPDATE 8/13/18 Emma had her surgery last week and a very large hemangioma was removed. She is recovering well but is in need of a second procedure to drain the large seroma that resulted from the surgery. We will accept applications for her but she needs to be fully healed before she can be rehomed.
We will only consider exceptional applications for Emma, as she will need to be kept on fairly expensive medications for the rest of her life and need a solid commitment from any potential adopters.
UPDATE NOVEMBER 2018 - Due to Emma's ongoing medical needs, we have opted to have her remain permanently in her foster home.
