Dog - My Best Friend Rescue Red
KarlaYour Pet's Rescue Story
Emmy’s current life is far removed from the neglect she experienced just a few years ago.
Emmy was found in the Florida elements in April 2015, locked in a cage without food or water, and left under a tree to bark herself crazy. When PAGO rescue partner Florida Little Dog Rescue found her, she was so matted you could barely see her face. She had to be sedated to be groomed, and once the dirt and clumps of hair were removed, she weighed a full pound less.
Since finding her Furever home, she has become the sweetest, most trusting and loyal dog. She will wait for us outside any door, laying her body across the threshold to make sure we don’t miss her. She loves to be touched, scratched and rubbed, and lives a life of luxury with a soft bed to sleep in every night. Still, her past neglect rears its head when it comes to protecting her food, toys and family (including her rescue brother, Murrow).
Emmy is a major reason we support organizations like Pet Alliance and Florida Little Dog Rescue, and she is more than deserving to win this year’s My Best Friend contest. She is the perfect example of the power of rescue... without these partner groups, dogs like her would never have a second chance at living their best life.
