I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Introducing Emma, 18 pounds of sweetness. A petite, black female. Emma was picked up as a stray in Nogales and her time had come to be put to sleep. Thankfully DLRR stepped in and saved her. The whole ordeal was very stressful for her, but she is coming around and starting to act like a 17 week old puppy should. Potty training is work-in-progress and she does great as long as she is taken out often during the day. She is great in her crate at night and initially used her crate as her "safe place" during the day. She is now comfortable napping on the "big dog" beds. Emma has two lab foster brothers, 13 years and 18 months. She is respectful of the 13 year old, but does try to get him to play. The 18 month old plays hard and she loves every second of the romping and chasing. Children and cats are unknown. Emma is comfortable with new things as long as she is introduced in a slow, non-threatening
manner. She has two horse friends that were very scary giants at first. Rides well in the car, walks well on the leash and we are working on basic commands (she is into the treat thing!) Emma will make a wonderful addition to a family ready to take on the challenges and rewards of a puppy.
