This is Emma, and she is a hoot!
Emma is a four-year-old chihuahua who has been in foster for 2 months. She has a rare neurological issue where she… sort of dances? All the time? Her foster mom described it best by saying it just looks like she’s had too much tequila at all hours of the day. That’s how she walks. But she’s not in pain and she’s happy as a clam.
She sticks by her people (and loves to sleep next to you in bed). She is good with other dogs, cats and kids. And if you want to see what she looks like when you get home from work (or even if you don’t), you need to watch this video. Have you ever seen a happier dog? I think not.
If you are interested in adopting Emma, her information and application can be found here.
About this project
For the next month, I’ll feature photos on my blog, my instagram and my facebook feeds that focus on dogs who need homes. These are dogs currently in foster homes, waiting for their forever family. They are amazing pups who will melt your hearts — some are hard to adopt because they are pit bull mixes (the sweetest dogs ever who cannot help their strength) or they have lived on the streets for a long time and are covered in scars or they might be blind or deaf (or both). Some are simply hard to get adopted because they are black, which is the dumbest reason ever. But each dog that has come into my studio in the last few weeks for photos has had a warm heart and wanted nothing more than love. Wouldn’t it be great if one of you could provide that? I hope so. To see all the dogs featured so far, look here.
