Neglected Dog Can’t Believe She Got a Real Bed And a New Life!

A 14-year-old dog named Emma had been kept outside her whole life before her owners dumped her at a shelter in North Carolina. She was days from being put down, when something incredible happened.

An animal rescue organization in Connecticut, Animals R Family, raised the money to save her, and a pilot flew her to safety. She was given the first dog bed she ever had in her life, along with a lot of donated toys.

Emma still doesn’t seem to believe that she deserves all this love.

“On one of the first nights she did a very sad thing,” Nicole Bruck, founder of Animals R Family, told The Dodo. “She went out for her late-night before-bed toilet break. After she had gone to the toilet, she walked under the deck. She scratched around in a dirt hole, lay down in it and closed her eyes. It made me cry.”

Bruck realized that for all 14 years of her life, Emma had slept in a dirt hole. “She was not expecting anything more or anything better,” Bruck said.

“I led her back into the house and put her on her bed and told her; with tears in my eyes, that she would never, ever, ever sleep in a dirt hole again.”

Even though she’s safe now, the years Emma was neglected dog have really taken a toll on her health. So she’s undergoing a lot of medical treatment to get her healthy again.
