Emily, Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Emily’s Story:

Emily should be playing with toys, sleeping on fluffy pillows and enjoying long belly rubs. Instead, this young pup deals with something very different every day. She has a horrible case of Mange and is very ill.

Medical Update: We are so sorry to have to tell you all that Emily did not make it. Her body was too broken & her illnesses too severe. There was nothing the doctors could do for her & she was suffering. She saw three doctors today at three different hospitals…we tried everything to save her. Two and a half weeks ago we pulled her from the shelter with a horrific case of mange, not knowing her poor little body was harboring the deadly distemper virus and while it hasn’t been confirmed with a necropsy, the likely hood was extremely high. And today, the news of pneumonia.

We are overwhelmed at the outpouring of support & well-wishes for Emily today. To say thank you seems insufficient….we are thankful for all of you!

We are eternally grateful to her foster mom Leslie for all she’s done for Emily this week & for holding her in her arms while she crossed The Bridge.

Our sadness is great…and we know you share it with us. Fly with the angels sweet girl…
