When Emma's daddy came home after 6 months deployment, the special needs dog joined her brothers Mikey and Jesse in welcoming him at the door.
Emma's mom, Melissa Proctor Swanson says, "My husband has been gone for 6 months. Before he left, we adopted (are long term foster parents for SNARR-a special needs animal rescue) a special needs puppy with a severe birth defect. Emma and her daddy were very close! It broke her heart when he left. When I come in the door, she normally sits at the end of the hallway and waits for me to pick her up. This time, when her daddy came in, she went to him!"
Emma is a 1-year-old American Bulldog/Pitbull mix with a birth defect called Hemivertebrae. Melissa says on Emma's Facebook page, "Within days of her coming to me, we decided that we would not be letting her leave. She is part of our family and has made us much closer. She has a spirit unmatched by any dog. Her determination to do things is inspirational."
