TO BE KILLED – 11/17/2018
GENTLE, SHY, SAD ELDER BULL EMMY DREAMS OF A RETIREMENT HOME!
Ten years old. Ten years of giving her love & her heart to a family. Ten years of having a routine she could count on, no surprises, only good dreams. And then it was gone. Emmy is said to be a STRAY, but where she was found, & her prior history is unknown. All we know is her face is frosty, her heart is good and kind, and she is timid & shy at the shelter because the #shelter is a #scary place, with dogs who are rude, and strangers who (though kind) are not friends from her former life. Emmy dearly needs a RETIREMENT home where she can rest her ARTHRITIC bones, sit like a princess on a cushy bed bought just for her, & enjoy the love of a family who want nothing but good things for her in her #goldenyears. Emmy loves treats, & the volunteers love Emmy. SHE NEEDS family of her own, a quiet, calm, safe haven in an experienced ADULT ONLY family (no kids under age 13) where she can flourish and find her smile again.
