About Emily

Age: Adult
Sex: Female

Emily is a female adult rottie whose age is unknown. We believe that she is probably about 3 years old or so. A family found her last winter running in the desert, and brought her home. She was nothing but skin and bones back then. Emaciated to the extreme. You could easily count every vertebrae. The family that found her, didn't want her in the house because she had a couple of ticks on her. This was dead of winter with temps dropping below 30 degrees at night. They had her sleeping in a crate on their patio with some blankets piled on top of it. With not an once of fat on her body she became sick with pneumonia. When we were asked to take her into our rescue, they had just taken her to their vet who had diagnosed her as a diabetic. They did not want to deal with that and surrendered her to us. It's been a long road to get Emily where she is today. She is as healthy as anyone can expect a diabetic to be. Her numbers are within a good range and she is now close to a normal weight for a healthy Rottie. Her foster mom is god sent and does a fabulous job making sure that Emily gets her insulin shots twice a day . I asked her to write about how it is live with Emily and this is what she said. Emily Gorgeous Classic Rottie - BEAUTIFUL Rottie face and build and VERY, VERY loving!! Her special needs do NOT limit her ability to enjoy life to the FULLEST . . she is not shy or limited in ANY way, shape or form. She is truly one of the BEST, EASIEST and MOST LOVING fosters I have had in my 10+ years of being involved in rescue. Again, Em not only LOVES her people, but she LOVES her toys, is SUPER-DUPER smart, well-behaved, trusting, adorable, silly (loves the semi-deflated basketball and is a HOOT to watch as she bats it around and chases it), has a kennel full of toys. she not the best at sharing since she can't see all that well, so her play time with toys is structured, she's a little too zealous with her rawhide and gags herself therefore those are a 'no-no', her favorite toys are ones that squeak or move a bit but she's really not picky at all . . she truly does LOVE all toys J . . she doesn't tear up her toys or bedding but again she really is a bit of a toy hoarder so you can usually find most (if not all of her toys) tucked away in her kennel. In typical Rottie fashion she needs to be the queen of the household so no other large dominant females, but she is fine with her little white fluffy female friend Lily, . .she does get along well with the males in our household but when they are playing rough I keep her separated since she can't see well and it's not fair for her to get 'ambushed' when they are engaging in their typical play behavior. She would do fine as an only dog too. . .. she is a good guard dog and will alert you if someone is approaching you or your residence that she is not familiar with. She REALLY gets around quite well so it leads me to believe she can at least see shadow, if not more. She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her walks and will sleep quietly at your feet while you watch TV and/or work on your computer. She is ok being left on her own as long as she has access to a doggie door. She would NEVER, EVER, EVER pottie in the house, her kennel or her sleeping area and she is extremely good at finding a way to let herself out if needed and then back in as well. Again, she does listen really well and her main goals in life are to love, be loved and to please her pet parents . everything else (even toys, walks and belly rubs) are secondary to those 3 things in her life DON'T MISS EMILY's VIDEO.
