Such a sad, frightened face.
She had been picked up as a stray in southwest Virginia. Luckily, she was taken by a kind soul to a veterinarian who spayed her and generally checked out her health. Because of the dedication of a network of rescue folks, she made her way in a few weeks to a small rescue group that mostly handles terriers in Virginia’s Northern Neck. I saw her on Petfinder when I was searching for a dog.
I took a leap and adopted her on March 5, 2009.
I named her Emma P. Buttercup.
She is something I have been thankful for every day since.
She had some issues, I’m pretty sure she was abused, but five years later, she’s a different girl than the sad one you see above. She is my shadow.
Here’s how she looks today. See her smiling?
I love my dog.
Abandoned no more.
