Here is sweet,
shy Emmy, (as seen on Animal Planet - Phoenix Heros on 01-16-06)
Emmy is 1 year 2 months
old and was rescued from a puppy mill in early May of 2005. She has been spayed
and is up to date on all her shots, and weighs 11.2 lbs.
Emmy was adopted in May and
went to live with a family which included a miniature poodle. She and the poodle
became good friends BUT the new owners said they couldn't potty train her so they
tied her to a tree outside in the Arizona summer heat. She is a real survivor
and her new owners finally returned her to the Arizona Humane Society on September
14, 2005. She was picked up that same day and is one terrified little girl who
needs a whole lot of love and a family that has someone at home to give her the
love, attention and training that she deserves.
Emmy is learning fast and already loves to snuggle in bed at night and is
being fostered where she has 2 griffs to play with. Emmy is located in the Phoenix,
Arizona area and is available for immediate adoption to the right family.
If you would like more information,
contact Carole Ross. If you are interested
in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Keep in mind that we prefer
to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone
from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to
fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Emmy has been Adopted!
February 20, 2006
Carol and Jackie,
Thank you two for taking
the time from your busy lives to come all the way over here with this precious
I just want to let you
know that I think I will have to change Emmy's name to "Ms. Piggy" as she ate
everything I gave her and then finished what Max left! Max has always left one
bite, have no idea why, but he does. She was so cute, she got right in his bowl
and helped herself - so, we know she likes the NRG with real chicken it it! -
as well as the bowl height is no challenge! I did go and buy her food and I will
mix a little at a time to get her little tummy used to it.
She follows me around -
holds up her paw, I shake it and say, thank you Emmy, good girl. She sat with
Munchie and Max and watched me fix dinner, they were all in a row! As I put each
bowl down I say their name, she was right there for hers! I know she is a little
nervous and is very timid but I think with a little time she will blossom. With
me she will become a very social dog! She and Max will go everywhere I can take
As I type this note she
is laying at my feet on a big fluffy pillowbed - so very very tired and blinking
her eyes, trying so hard not to give in... she hears my every move and if I move
my feet she raises her head... I'm used to Max, he just lays there and I have
to step over him! I'm hoping that she begins to relax and not be so tense and
be a little more laid back.
Again, thank you so very
very much. I promise to be a good mom.
D, Max, Munchie and Emmy!
for more rescue stories!
