Dog recovers from horror breeding farm

Emma Paige

EMMA Paige finally knows what it feels like to be a normal dog.

The bichon spent eight years locked up in a cage at a puppy breeding farm.

She had never seen grass, played with balls or had a cuddle.

EP, as she is known, was riddled with arthritis, and suffered heart murmurs and cataracts in her eyes.

A year ago, the RSPCA raided the puppy farm and she was one of a 100 dogs in horrid conditions, with many of her caged mates put out of their misery.

Kerrie Allen went to the RSPCA looking for a great dane but could not get Emma Paige off her mind.

“It was her little face, she looked so scared,” she said. “I had to go get her the next day.”

The dog no longer hides under tables when people visit.

 “She is just beautiful,” Ms Allen said.
