Dogs come in all shapes, sizes and personalities. It doesn’t matter how big or small, or what kinds of challenges they’ve faced healthwise or emotionally, every single one of them deserves to be treated with love. As dog enthusiasts, we absolutely adore seeing dogs that might have otherwise been written off or, worse, treated badly, be given the kind of life they are meant for: one filled with care and comfort and playfulness.
Emma is a sweet little Chihuahua who was born with facial deformities including a cleft lip and various skull malformations. Overwhelmed by her condition, her original owners didn’t feel they could properly care for her, so she was given up for adoption at just a few hours old.
When her current owner got her, Emma needed extreme medical attention, and received 24 hour care while she gained her strength. Now, at 5 years-old, Emma is said to be a spirited, determined little girl with a big heart despite the obstacles she’s had to overcome.

How precious is the bond between Emma and her clearly dedicated human? That kind of love and loyalty can overcome just about anything. Have you ever faced a health challenge with your dog? What did you do to help them stay strong?
