Meet Emma

Sweet EMMA - Looking for a Retirement Home

My name is Emma. I am not exactly young anymore, although I still enjoy walks and naps and hanging out with people. They say I am 14, but isn’t age just a number? I am pretty healthy for an “old gal”. I did have a bout of vestibular disease last year, but that has gotten a lot better. It made me a little off-balance for a while, but I have improved a lot. My head tilts to the side a little bit, but it doesn’t really bother me and my foster Mom says I am beautiful.

I used to talk a lot, but I don’t do that so much anymore. I do like to give a nice bark to let people know that I need to go out or if I would like a snack or maybe just to play. After all, I am a hound! Some of us bark a lot! As I get older I find it is less necessary. Since I am not so young anymore, I would really like to find a home and spend some time with a family of my very own again. I don’t need much – a nice bed, treats, a couple of toys and a walk or two a day (to stay in shape of course) – that’s all I need.

This is what my foster Mom has to say about me, “Emma is a sweet old lady who really does not ask for much. She sleeps a lot and is not quite as active as she used to be. She loves to go out for a few short walks every day so she can smell and check out everything around her. She also loves treats! She is very smart. As much as it will break my heart to not have her with me, I think she deserves to be in a home where she is the only dog and treated like the princess that she is

History: Until last year I lived with a wonderful older lady who rescued me many, many years ago. She was my best friend, but she has gotten old and had to move to a special home where dogs can’t live. I tried to live with her daughter’s family, but their dog and I…well, we just couldn’t co-habitate. The family tried to work it out, but alas they called Almost Home Rescue and asked if they could find me a new home.

I like my foster Mom a lot, but she has other dogs too. I think I would like to live in a home where I was the only dog. I haven’t had much exposure to children so I think I would prefer living with adults. I have lived with a cat – for eight years! We were pretty good friends. I am not sure I want to live with a cat again though – it has been a while.

If you have a soft spot for old dogs with big floppy ears...I guarantee I am for you!! Thank you for considering me! Love and licks, Emma
