Dog of the Day: Emmi, Shih Tzu

Pin It

My Dog’s Name: Emmi

Age of My Dog: 3 years

Breed: Shih Tzu

What I Love About My Dog: Emmi was rescued after a breeder surrender to a shelter. She was 4 months old! One look at that precious little face and I knew she was mine! She was not bred properly, thus resulting in severe IBD issues. She develops UTI frequently along with forming Calcium Oxalate Crystals and she has developed epilepsy for which she is now on a lifetime of anti-seizure meds! She is all of 8 pounds and considering her conditions, is full of spit, fire and loads of cuteness. She is an absolute joy and her breeder’s loss; she is now my heart!!
