Emma is a nervous but excitable girl! She's eager to learn new things, play with her dog friends, or cuddle on the couch with her people friends.

DOG SOCIABILITY: Emma has never lived with another dog but does go to our playgroup with a select group of pups. She could potentially live in a home with a well-matched dog sibling!

KID SOCIABILITY: Because Emma needs more time with warming up to new people, we would recommend that Emma go to an adult only home. However, she could potentially live with older (16+) children in her future home.

CAT SOCIABILITY: She previously lived in a foster home with a cat sibling and did well!

HOUSE/CRATE TRAINING: Because of Emma's medical needs, she needs to be crated or fenced off when left alone. Otherwise, she's a perfect house guest!

HOME SETUP: Emma's looking for an adopter who is willing to go slow with her to gain her trust, as well as a best friend! She'd love an adopter with lots of understanding for her medical needs!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.

Come meet your new best friend

Say "Yes" for Sapphire this Giving Tuesday

Living as a stray, Sapphire was struck by a car. She was bleeding, writhing in pain from nerve damage and bruised ribs — and pregnant.
