Meet Ember! Her years as a breeder may have dimmed her light, but now this brave girl is glowing brighter than ever.
Ember came to FBRN with a skin infection, hyperplastic ear canals, cauliflower ears, and a scar on her left eye caused by an untreated ulcer. Her once beautiful bat ears are permanently crumpled, the result of repeated and untreated infections. But in spite of all she has endured, Ember craves attention from people. She can’t hear well, but when she makes eye contact with her foster mom, she immediately sprints over for a head scratch and a belly rub!
Learning how to be a pet can be a long process, but so far Ember has been an excellent student. She gets an A-plus in tearing apart stuffies, and while her potty training needs work, she scores excellent marks in fashion with her dapper diaper covers. Getting her to eat breakfast is a challenge, as she prefers to sleep in (we feel you, girl), but she scarfs down dinner like a champ.
It will take some time before Ember is well enough (in both body and mind) to be placed for adoption. But she is well on her way!
