Emma Tee tried to hide in the corner of a Texas shelter; this was to be her last stop in the medical ward before a cart arrived to move the neglected nine-month-old puppy to the back room for euthanasia. On Friday, her story had been destined to begin and end as follows:
“Emma Tee sits in a Texas kill shelter, in horrendous medical condition.
She’s on the cold and dirty, germ infested floor which is so sad
She is at the end of the road here.
Hairless, her limbs are swollen from infection, deep sores and gashes all over her body
We don’t know who did this to her, who allowed this to happen to her
She lies curled up tight, in a little ball hoping she can hide away in the shelter walls
Sadly, it’s just the opposite, there’s no hiding as she’s in the sick ward , where those dogs are first to be Euthanized.”
Emma Tee is one of the lucky ones. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC were asked to help this puppy, and at that moment the puppy’s life changed. She is currently safe and recovering at the organization’s San Antonio veterinary partner. Her skin is badly infected, her legs and feet are so swollen, she can barely walk, and the open sores all over her body are just a small indication of the misery and neglect this young puppy has suffered in her short life.
Emma Tee is expected to make a complete recovery.
