Sweet and calm Emmy looking for her haven in the UK

Emmy is a sweet quiet girl with a calm and loving nature.

Emmy first came to our notice when she arrived at our vet’s surgery in a very emaciated and poor condition.

She was skin and bone and our vets did a good job of patching her up and also of neutering her.

In normal circumstances she would have then been passed on to the shelter but our vet could not bring it upon themselves to do that.

Emmy is a pretty little thing who loves people

They feared she would not receive the care she needed there to recover from her operation and they were also concerned that she was still too weak from being so badly malnourished.

Instead they turned to us and asked for our help in offering her some care and the chance of a permanent home in the future.

We took her in and moved her to our Sanctuary but she struggled to settle among the other more lively dogs there.

It may be that some of the dogs sensed her vulnerability as she was picked on by one or two.

Emmy was taken into the home of our volunteers who live on site and she has been thriving there ever since. She loves home living and being near and around people.

She is fully house trained and she loves to hop up on to the sofa for a cuddle. She is not at all destructive and she is an absolute joy to foster.

She is fine with both men and women and she loves her regular walks. She is now excellent on the lead and she looks forward to going out for an explore.

She has been getting very attached to Yvonne and Keith at the Sanctuary and she gets a little anxious at the moment when they go out. This will pass as she gets to feel more secure and safe.

Emmy has a calm and sweet nature

She appears to be cat friendly and shows no signs of wanting to chase any of the cats around the Sanctuary.

Emmy is around two years old and will be ready to travel to the UK some time during the first quarter of 2022.

She is a medium sized dog and currently weighs around 18kg although she is still putting on weight as she continues to build herself up as part of her recovery.

She is happy playing with other dogs but we suspect she would benefit from living in a quieter household.

The task now is to find just the right home and just the right person who can show Emmy the love, care and patience all rescue dogs need.
