An endearing Yorkie/Shi tzu mix, sweet Emma, at 13 years of age, is all about cuddling as much and as often as possible. With a puppy like spring in her step, she loves going on walks and visiting the park, and while she’s understandably shy near big dogs, she’s reassured by the nearness of her owner. Initially more at ease with women than men, she quickly warms up to them, and having once lived with cats, if introduced properly, she should be purr-fectly fine. Given a clean bill of health by the vet six months ago, where a dental left her with only four teeth, she eats heartily and well, and being a well behaved miss only barks when someone comes to the door. Because she needs bathroom breaks five to six times a day, Emma is best suited to a home with someone there most of the time and who loves cuddling as much as she does.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
