Emily was pulled from a high kill shelter in North Carolina. She was scared to death and snapping at everyone. She was heartworm positive and found to be deaf and visually impaired, thus the snappy behavior. She is on crate rest currently while recovering from heartworm treatment. The ideal family is one with no children unless they are older and calm and no other pets unless you can segregate them. She needs a loving, caring place to live out the remaining days of her life.
