Emily is barely two-years-old, yet her life is in grave danger at the San Bernardino City Shelter where dogs are routinely euthanized the day they are listed to "exit" after their "hold" periods have expired.
It's true that Emily is a pit bull, but she's a friendly, beautiful, well-adjusted young pooch who needs a home. Meanwhile, she just lies there - staring as if she has lost her best friend. And that may very well be possible, except no one has come to claim her and take her home.
Emily has been at the shelter since July 10, and she will be available for adoption on July 17.
