All About Them Giant Breed Rescue has cared for Emma ... a large, black Great Dane for seven years. She is their primary ambassador at adoption and other events where she meets and greets the public. A gentler soul you will not meet.
Emma's story has a sad beginning, an uncertain middle with a happy ending. Emma was only about two years old when her human family left her behind at a campground in Georgia. She was so confused by the experience it took rangers there close to two months to catch her so she could go into rescue with AATGBR.
Emma was so traumatized by the experience she wouldn't even go into her foster mom's house for the first two weeks. Linda slept with Emma in her Ford Ranger in the garage until Emma felt secure enough to enter her new home.
As so many in the rescue community know it’s the large, black dogs that more often than not are the last to find forever homes. Emma is no exception. AATGBR had Emma listed for adoption for over four years with not even one inquiry about her. Linda Gress, founder of AATGBR decided to ask Emma to become an ambassador for the rescue group. And, yes, Linda asked Emma for you see; Linda is a certified animal communicator.
Emma is delighted to have a job and seems to intuitively know how to respond to each individual – both human and canine. Recently, Emma developed a fever and swelling in her neck. The cause was determined to be a fast growing and very large tumor which has been removed along with some salivary glands and a lymph node.
The veterinarian expects Emma to recover and feels she may be able to return home tomorrow. AATGBR is in desperate need of donations to help pay for Emma's vet care. Is there anyone out there who can help?
