A Little Bit About Me
Lovely and elegant Emma is the Mary Poppins of dogs – practically perfect in every way. Due to circumstances beyond her control, Emma has come to us to help her find a forever home. Her foster mom raves about what a wonderful companion Emma is. Everyone who meets her agrees!
Emma’s ancestry is a mystery, but we’re guessing she’s a nice mix of Labrador Retriever, Kelpie, and/or some kind of hound. A lovely heritage to be sure.
Emma feels she’s too much of a grand dam to spend her days in a kennel. She effectively communicated this message with unhappy barking, and now that she spends her days in a proper office she’s quite content. She settles in, relaxes well and is a perfect guest. She does prefer that her person be home much of the time. She is a house trained and very sociable girl who enjoys people more than anything. Except maybe for food and chews. Ahem. We noticed that she makes it clear when she does not want people or other dogs near her “valuables,” which are usually delicious chews. Because of this we strongly advise that she live with children at least over ten who truly understand the meaning of “leave the dog’s treat alone.” Emma would be happy to be the only dog in your household, and dog parks and other canine social venues are not her cup of tea at all.
If you are hoping to find a mellow dog who would love to hang out with you, go for long walks, enjoy welcoming your dinner guests (remind them that she is on a diet) and listen to your secrets without ever tattling on you, Emma is the one. She is a gem among gems. Practically perfect in every way.
