5-Week-Old Lab Mix Left to Suffer

When Emmie, an adorable Lab mix, was just 5 weeks old, she was heartlessly dumped over someone’s backyard fence and abandoned. Apparently, her first owner -- who could not be traced -- had decided that the sweet, helpless little pup was “disposable.”

Even worse, she appeared to be a victim of neglect and possibly abuse. Emmie had a terrible head injury and a severe case of mange, a painful disease caused by mites that burrow beneath the skin.

Fortunately, the owners of the home where Emmie had been dumped found her in time and brought her to an animal shelter. She didn’t know it then, but her life was about to change dramatically.

Adoptive Family Discovers Puppy Love

Thanks to big-hearted donors like you, American Humane was able to help the animal shelter caring for Emmie pay for her medical treatment through one of our Second Chance® Fund grants.

Emmie is now fully healthy, and her rough start in life hasn’t stopped her from playing, cuddling and exploring like a normal puppy. She is an active member of a new adoptive family, which includes three young boys. The boys are thrilled to have a dog in their lives, and Emmie is thrilled to be receiving so much love and attention!
