Emma : Cleft Palate Chihuahua


2012 Update - Emma is a tiny Chihuahua born in 2008 with a cleft palate, cleft lip and craniofacial deformities. - She turned 4 years old on August 4th 2012 and is approximately 30 ounces in weight. - Emma was rescued at 17 hours old - tube fed for the first 9 months of her life - has endured 6 surgeries (all, for the most part, to no avail) - and her skull is still wide open in many areas, leaving nothing between her tiny brain and the world but a paper thin layer of skin. - She doesn't "live the life of a dog" - because the world is just much too dangerous for her - but she is a brilliant, sweet spirited, blissfully content little girl ~ and the light of our lives!! - Visit Emma on her personal website at: - And on Facebook at: - -

aw sooo cute. i love when i see pups get a happy home and play around with its new happy family.sometimes i forget how i got my dog.but for one thing i know is i was scared cuz she kept barking but now i got used to her. if you need some way to get your dog to sleep, try rubing his or hers tummy softly and slowly.i do that to my dog and it really works!

omg emma has given me so much hope that ive called my little chihuahua who also has a cleft lip and palette "Hope" she is 4 days old today and is fighting to feed off the moms teets but is failing. Im with her 24/7 doing my upmost to save her little life its so heartbreaking. I cant stop praying she tries so hard. she takes the bottle well and im hoping in time she will latch onto the teet as well. Any advice is very welcome. your emma is stunning xxxxxxxxx love her already, big kiss from me baby..xxxxx
