Have wheels will travel! Emma doesn't let the little things slow her down. This sweet baby girl has been through some trauma in her short life, and is ready to see how good life can be!

Emma is happy and active, but needs help with her day-to-day activities due to some back leg paralysis. It is uncertain whether her paralysis is permanent at this point, but she is content to use her wheels to motor around for now. All she asks of her humans is to help her with going potty, follow up with her physical therapy, and give her plenty of love!

Miss Emma loves to cuddle, play with her toys, and chew on bones. Since she has been busy learning to use her wheels, she hasn't had as much time to socialize with other dogs. She will need slow introductions with other dogs and playtime with gentle dogs due to her current condition. She seems very curious about cats, so they may not make the best roommates or will need very slow introductions.

This silly girl is looking for an adult family that knows what it is like to rely on others for help. She needs the time and patience to trust those that will allow her to be her happiest! Are you ready to give Miss Emma the TLC she needs? Her foster family is ready to share what a day in the life of Emma is like. Come meet this sweet soul!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
