Emma is now ready for adoption. Here is her foster-mum’s write-up… “Emma is such a sweet girl. She is still a bit timid and shy, but is slowly starting to trust us more. She loves cuddles and scratches under her chin/behind her ears. Out on walks she’s still a bit unsure, but she walks well on the lead and will stay glued to your legs. The outside world with all it’s unfamiliar sounds and objects is still a little scary, but she is so smart and willing to try! She’s been terrific with our dog too and looks to him for reassurance and example. Emma is simply gorgeous and a real joy to have around. She isn’t aggressive at all, even when she’s scared. She will just flinch, cower, and try to avoid the thing that is scaring her. She’s already improved a lot in just two weeks though. Treats are still a foreign concept to her, but she’s very fond of her dry food, so we’ve given her that as treats. Emma also has no clue what toys are for. We’ve tried playing with a ball and she looks at it with interest but doesn’t understand what to do yet. She settles well at night and sleeps downstairs on her pillow without issues”. Emma has just turned 4 years old. She can live with older children (12+) in line with her foster home. We would like her to be rehomed with at least one more similar-sized dog. Emma isn’t cat tested so will need a cat-free home. Emma has just finished her season so will need to be spayed in three months time. This will be paid for by the rescue so she will need to stay local to our vets in Derby, Nottingham or Burton-on-Trent. Emma is an ex-breeding bitch from kennels.
