When Emily was first brought to RSPCA’s Danaher Animal Home as a stray, everyone there was shocked by her condition. She’s so skinny that she barely weighs anything, and it’s clear she needs as much love and care as she does. The shelter can be given to her.
“She’s nothing more than skin and bones,” Louisa Duranti, deputy manager of the Danaher Animal Home animal center, said in a news release. “We gave her a special diet, we fed her very little and often and slowly increased her weight and strength.”
With the help of all her new friends, Emily gained about 10 pounds in just a few weeks. Although she was nervous after all this, she slowly started to come out of her shell. Once she was healthy and healed, it didn’t take long for a wonderful family to question her and adopt her into her new forever home.
“It breaks our hearts to see Emily’s story and photos,” Emily’s new dad, Mark Colbell, said in a release. “We felt we had to apply to help her.”
Emily is now fully settled in her new home, and while she’s still nervous at times, how she’s changed from when she first arrived at the shelter is absolutely incredible. She looks like a completely different dog and everyone involved in her recovery journey is thrilled to see her thrive.
“Emily has done a great job and is almost completely settled now,” Kerber said. “We’ve had her fed and while she still has moments of anxiety, especially at night, we can only imagine what she’s going through, and cuddling in the armchair with us seemed to help! She really came out of the shell Come out and find her own voice. She’ll give us happy little purrs when we play in the garden or make a fuss in her bean bag.”
When Emily was first rescued, it was hard to imagine her as a healthy, carefree dog. Now she’s doing so well, sometimes she even feels comfortable breaking the rules, and her new family doesn’t mind at all – they’re happy to see her growing in confidence.
“We’re so lucky to have her and happy that after what she’s been through, we’re able to give her a wonderful forever home,” Kerber said.
