Emily was left alone and abandoned in Leavenworth Washington December 28, 2011. Christine and Chrisotpher decided to take a New Year's ski vacation and found her leashed to the front office of the Alpine Rivers Inn. Cold and afraid, we were allowed to take her to our room and see if we might locate her owner. Only 5 months old; no micro chip or "lost doggie" signs, we ended up bringing her home to join our other creatures. So grateful to be rescued, she wants to spend each and every moment with us.
