On Friday morning, devastating news, about a skeletal dog who was saved from the Miami-Dade Animal Services facility in October, was released.

The dog, a Chow mix named "Emily," died from complications following surgery that was performed on Wednesday.

The following heartbreaking words were shared early Friday:

Tragic news that I am really having a hard time writing, our sweet Emily had more complications and went into cardiac arrest, they were able to bring her back but she was not breathing on her own and in a coma, after that, Emily went into 2 more cardiac arrests and was not breathing on her own without machines, then she went into a fourth cardiac arrest at 7 a.m. and we allowed her to go peacefully.


She overcame so much of her horrific abuse but it still took her in the end, our only peace and happiness we can hold onto is the Emily lived with a wonderful family for the past 2 months in a home that loved her so much and treated her like a Queen that she was Emily loved her vet staff, her clothes made her proud, enjoyed her walks, her yummy healthy meals, healthier body and fur coat to cover her skin and sleeping on the best bed in town.

Prior to her death, Emily proved herself to be a courageous, spirited dog who wanted to live. Despite the obvious neglect she had suffered in her life, she remained forgiving to people and she charmed those who had the privilege of meeting her.

Rest in Peace Emily.
