Cute Puppy of the Week
Meet Emmy! This GORGEOUS border collie/aussie mix was adopted through Mo-Kan Border Collie Rescue. She turned 7 months old recently, at which time we spayed her and x-rayed her hips. Although she does have some subluxation of her left hip, we have started her on a course of Adequan to help keep her joints feeling good for many years to come. She has already proven herself to be an amazing dog for her owner, who recently experienced a possible seizure and severe muscle cramping. Emmy alerted her big brother, Buddy, an Australian Shepherd who has been trained to alert her owner as to when a seizure may occur (he couldn’t get to his owner because he was behind a doggy gate, but Emmy’s pacing prompted Buddy to knock it down). She also ran to her owner’s side where she was having a cramp and applied the weight of her body to help. Even after her owner was feeling better, Emmy remained glued to her side. They are lucky to have found each other!
