Dog With Special Needs Left Behind At BarEmmie is a very special puppy. She’s 5-months-old and was born with a condition which prevents her from straightening her front legs and her spine is twisted, making it very difficult for her to walk for very long. She requires lots of love and care, but sadly, her owner gave her neither.The RSPCA received a call about a dog left behind in a bar, they assumed it would be like any other rescue – but they didn’t expect to find a dog like Emmie.Inspector Lauren Bailey showed up at the bar and was heartbroken to see the Chihuahua-Yorkie scared and all alone. It’s assumed that Emmie most likely developed her deformities because of overbreeding.“Tiny” dogs are becoming increasingly popular, causing breeders to breed extremely small dogs, marketing them as “teacup” breeds. Often times, breeders are completely unaware as to the long-term issues this can cause.“Deformities can also be the result of bad nutrition and a poor start in life, with the mum and pups not getting what they needed during the most important first weeks and months of the pup’s life, leading to poor development,” Lisa Hens, a dog welfare expert with the RSPCA, said in a press release.Due to Emmie’s health condition, the staff at the RSPCA shelter were afraid that it would be hard to find her the perfect forever home. However, she already had already stolen someone’s heart.An animal collection officer with the RSPCA named Kate Wright had caught wind of Emmie and her story – she knew right away that she wanted to help the little dog. Kate had recently lost a dog and she, along with her other dog Sapphire, was struggling to get over the loss. When she heard about Emmie – she knew it was the perfect fit for them.
