EMMA IS NOT READY FOR ADOPTION. READ ON.Emma came to us from a breeding kennel in November. She came in very thin and weighed only 8 pounds. We fed her canned dog food and hamburger and rice.  She did put on 3 and a half pounds but has had some blood issues since we got her. She had several ultra sounds which showed her intestines were thick and some of her lymph nodes were enlarged. Her blood level for protein was below normal and we couldn’t do surgery to spay her or take biopsies of  her intestines and lymph nodes. We did do a histoplasmosis test and an ACTH test on her but both tests were normal. We have put her on a low dose of a steroid in the hopes her protein will become normal so we can do more tests on her. She is extraordinarily sweet, is almost house trained,  and loves attention. Leash training is still tentative, but she is learning. She will not be available for adoption until we can do more tests. Emma will be placed in the Kansas City area when she is ready for her new home.
