In 2008 baby Emma, a Chihuahua, was born with a cleft palate, cleft lip and craniofacial deformities. Emma was rescued at birth through a Craigslist post and raised in front of the camera. Now, at 4 years old and just 29 ounces she continues to thrive and make her mark on the canine community.
Since 2008, the world has shared in the daily struggles of this one mighty pup and has been awestruck by the fountain of strength that the little Chihuahua called Emma, emits from her very soul!
Four years, six surgeries and thousands of touched hearts since she first graced us, “Baby Emma” continues on as an inspirational icon of strength and symbol of human compassion around the world.
