"Emma was incredibly sweet, quiet and low energy," Imgrund said. "Her illness was definitely affecting her personality."
Imgrund already had two rescue dogs at home, who were a little unsure of tiny Emma at first, but ultimately accepted her as part of their pack. "The other dogs could definitely tell she was sick when I first brought her back," Imgrund said. "My Chihuahua-terrier mix, Lizzie, was frightened by the way she looked initially, and my beagle, Butters, was extremely protective of her. He would sleep in front of her kennel at night to protect her."
