*Emma has since had her hind legs amputated to make her more comfortable, and she’s doing great! Her family has tried four different wheelchairs with no success—Emma has panic attacks in them and prefers to get around on her own. Today she’s still a happy little Pittie, and you can follow her adventures on Facebook.*


This pup is rebarkable! Despite being partially paralyzed, she will not be stopped from welcoming her Airman dad home from deployment at the door.

Emma was born with severe muscular and neurological defects, but her mom says she “has no idea she’s ‘special.'” Cheers to you, Emma! Way to show life who’s boss.
