Emaline adores her humans and is the ultimate lap dog! If you're looking for a BFF at-home work companion or study buddy, Elamine is happy to be your girl!

This sweetheart lives with foster dogs and cats and does wonderfully with both! She's working hard to be the best pup on her leash and is house-trained. Emaline's life revolves around loving her humans as hard as she can and much prefers when you're home to spend time with her. She's quite the adorable shadow, following you wherever you go, and when that pesky door gets shut and she can't be with you, that's the bane of her existence. Her current foster doesn't crate her because of her preference to be near you, and does perfectly fine being left alone loose in her space. She's very respectful of her surroundings.

A more snuggly lover you may never find! Her bed beside your desk is her happy place if you're trying to get work done. Lounging inside isn't her only forte! Sunbathing in the yard, playing with stuffed toys, and having nice walks also make her enjoyment list. She is a fan of making you celebrate confetti out of a paper towel or napkin if she finds one on the ground, as well! (She can put her silly hat on sometimes, too!)

Emaline's perfect day would involve a good TV binge or book reading session on the couch with her humans. Her ideal home would have people that are able to be home often so she can get her much-needed hangout time with you. She'd love to be a sister to any other canine or feline already in the home as well! Mostly, darling Emaline just wants to love and snuggle you! Are you that wonderfully lucky person? Come meet her!
