About Emmie

Adoption Fee: $250
Pit Bull mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Emmi has completed her board and train program and now is just waiting for her forever home while she continues to be in boarding. This is what her trainer had to say about her: Emmi is a laid back girl who absolutely loves to relax and cuddle but is also always down for an adventure. Emmi is satisfied just being with her people doing whatever the day brings and will adjust her energy level to match her human's. Although Emmi is laid back she is looking for someone who understands how to manage a dog with inner confidence issues. Emmi needs someone who is willing to set instant rules, boundaries and give proper decompression time when first bringing her home. Because she was born a 'back of the pack' energy, giving Emmi structure and guidance helps her feel more secure in her new environment and creates trust between her and her new family. When she doesn't go through a proper decompression period in her new environment, Emmi will put her insecurities into becoming territorial and defensive over the environment and her personal space with anyone new. Emmi would do best as an only pet and with someone who is looking for a dog they know will take continued time and training to fully overcome her lack of inner confidence. This is not something that happens overnight, so whoever adopts her must be committed to working with her and helping her reach her full potential. Adoption fee is $250.
