Emma was rescued from the Downey, Los Angeles shelter in January 2019. We originally thought she was maybe between 8 and 10 years old, and seeing how gentle and affectionate she was, we were hoping she would be adopted by a nice family looking for an older adult or senior dog.
However, as we spent more time learning about Emma and her needs, the more issues arose. First, we learned she was completely deaf. Then, was learned she was not house-trained (and likely never will be because of her age, disability, and her life living as an outdoor dog ). Then, we learned that Emma is not animal-friendly.
As such, we are currently looking for a very special forever home for Emma with a kind and patient person who would be willing to foster or adopt her, issues and all.
If you’re interested in being Emma’s forever person, please fill out an adoption or foster application here:
