In Memory


01 Apr 2012 - 30 May 2023

Emily was born in Romania and was imported along with her litter mates into a UK based rescue. She remained there until she was around 7 months old, when the rescue got into difficultly and we were asked if we could help by taking Emily and her littermates into our care. We managed to rehome her littermates, but Emily was the most scared. She did not know how to walk on a lead and struggled to trust new people having missed out on positive experiences during her puppyhood. Emily came into our care before we had the rescue centre and so was looked after at boarding kennels supported by our then Rescue Manager and an incredible team of volunteers who slowly built up her confidence. Emily had a number of homes during this time but struggled to adjust to home life each time and was returned. In April 2017 we purchased our rescue centre in Llanharan and Emily was one of the first dogs to move in. She loved the paddocks straight away and walking around the woodland.

Emily left us on Tuesday, very peacefully falling asleep in the sun with all her friends around her. We have never known the rescue centre without Emily and she will be missed so very much. We are so grateful to her team of volunteers and staff members who have helped to ensure Emily lived the best life for her. She was a very special character who will always remain a part of Hope Rescue and loved by all who knew her.
