Meet Emma! This cute girl with the one-up, one-down ears is a quite a friendly and level-headed girl. She is sweet and social with people and soaks up any attention that comes her way...we think she will be a very loving and attentive canine companion. She's also proving to be an energetic girl who enjoys any kind of adventure, be it a walk, a hike, or trotting alongside a bike, which she has learned to do here at the shelter. She also loves to play fetch. Like many female herding dogs, Emma doesn't seem to be into playing with or hanging out around other dogs.
Emma is also a bright and eager-to-learn girl who is familiar with some of the basics but ready to soak up more lessons.
It appears Emma may have had one too many snacks in her former life, she will definitely need to lose a few pounds to be at her healthiest weight! This shouldn't be too hard with increased exercise...in fact, we think she may have already lost some with just the daily exercise the dogs get at the shelter.
Emma is really looking forward to being a loved family member and having a human or two to call her own.
