Original story - Aug 2011: Emme is an approximate 4 year old girl who was an unclaimed stray from a rural shelter. She is getting along with our crew of males. She is sleeping in the kitchen on a dog bed with a baby gate up. She does like to push others out of the way for attention. She appears to be house trained. She needs to lose some weight but her tail is docked and dews are off. She has not shown any interest in fetching yet or in chewing on anything. She is a smaller girl at about 21 inches. She has a very expressive face and turns her head as you talk like she knows what you are saying. We are still getting to know her to make the right match to her new home. There are no cats or children in our foster home.
Dec 2012, Amy writes: Emme is doing wonderfully! She sure is a people person. She loves sitting next to, on, around, or on top of whoever walks through the door! I cannot begin to tell you how blessed we are that you chose our family for her to join. She LOVES to eat and ate the top part of an apple pie I had cooling on the counter for Christmas dinner. However, she also loves to run around outside and I often take her to school with me, so she is quite active. However, her favorite thing to do is be with people. :-) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for everything you do for this wonderful breed!
Apr 2013: Hello from Arizona. I just wanted to drop you a note and give you an update on Emme. She has really made our home complete! She loves being the queen of the house and is very attached to my husband. He is home with her all day and then she gets to go for walks with me at night. She did not pass AAT (Animal Assisted Therapy) because her "prey" drive was too strong. She really likes birds. But, we keep trying and training. I'm including a picture of what she does the majority of the day (along with my teen aged son). I hope all is wonderful with you. Please keep me in mind if you ever need any help in Arizona.
