Homeward Bound - Adopted!
Now living happily in Florida
Emma lived her entire life outside. All thirteen years of it. At some point in time, the people left the property altogether and did not bring Emma with them. On occasion, a family member would return to toss some kibble into the yard, only to leave again for days at a time. It is hard to believe that this old gal has anything left in her other than rage and disappointment, but true to the Labrador spirit, she has forgiven humans. She is a dear, sweet, gentle, kind, patient lady. She is grateful for every single thing she is given. She has learned to walk so nicely on a leash and waits patiently for her soft, delicious treats. Her poor coat quality due to being left outdoors for over a decade has been improving steadily with rest and good nutrition. Emma was surprised to see other dogs at HUA and has not really figured out whether they are friends. We think she will be OK with them once she understands that no being is out to hurt her, but she will need to be introduced to ensure that she is a fit with another dog. If ever there was a dog that deserves a home, it is Emma. She will just not believe the jackpot she hit.
