I was looking for another dog through Petfinder.com and came across a pic of Emma and her four puppies. At the time I wanted an older dog and she was just the right age, one-and-a-half years old. Her previous owners brought her and the puppies in for unknown reasons The pups were adopted out very quickly, I was glad to see (they were gone by the time I decided I wanted Emma), and she was left alone. I filled out the papers to foster her at first to see how we got along ... after that week was up, I officially adopted her! She was stressed from being at the shelter — thin, nervous, very little sleep, etc., and now she looks great! The director and staff at the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter are great people and do care ... they were both happy and sad to see her leaving.
