EMMA is a 3-4 year old Cairn Terrier/Chihuahua mix and a 7 lb bundle of of love.
EMMA loves sitting next to you and watching TV (she’s not picky about the channel and doesn’t need to control the remote). She also is a big fan of belly rubs.
EMMA is housetrained and walks well on a leash. She is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, and has been vet checked and given a clean bill of health.
EMMA is initially shy with new people (she is more comfortable with women then with men), but with a slow and gentle approach she warms up and becomes a loyal shadow.
We feel EMMA will do best in a home without young children, and with people who will continue to help her build her confidence. She might also thrive with another small dog for company. She will be a loyal and affectionate companion for her forever person or family.
