Hi! I'm Emma! I'm new to Summit Dog Rescue. I'm about 7 years old, 56 lbs. and a lab mix, maybe with some Great Dane?
I was owner-surrendered to a high-kill shelter down in Texas, along with my two daughters. My daughters got rescued because they were young, but no one wanted me because I'm a senior. Sadly, seniors rarely get rescued.
But I don't understand why! I'm past the puppy years --- I'm so happy to just be cozy on my dog bed while my people watch TV or use their computer. I'm content with a short walk --- just a few blocks works fine for me. I like to stretch my legs and sniff, but I don't need long walks or hikes.
My foster people say I'm a 'super easy girl.' At the shelter I was out in play groups with up to seven dogs and did fine with everyone. My tail wags all the time. In my foster home, I love the little 7 lb. Chihuahua --- he's my pal! The other day I got spayed and the vet clinic staff all fell in love with me. They said I was the 'sweetest, easiest dog ever.' I thought that was nice.
Here is my description from the folks who know me:
Emma is a 6 to 7 year old lab/hound mix who is one of the loveliest companions you could ever ask for. She enjoys more than anything being with people. She snuggles, stays close and then lies by your feet while you work, or read.
Trustworthy with free roam while you're gone, this girl enjoys the creature comforts in life - a comfy couch, a cozy dog bed.
She enjoys a walk around the block, but doesn't need or want much exercise. She is still spry, but not hyper or energetic.
She currently lives with a chihuahua and adores him, but can be a bit picky about larger dogs. It just depends.
She enjoys car rides and bully sticks.
She became homeless after her owner died of cancer, leaving her lost in the world.
She would actually make a great therapy dog, as she has never met a human she doesn't love. She melts into people! All heart.
Emma is 54 lbs, spayed, and heartworm negative!
We think she would be perfect for a senior who wants a lovely companion animal, so we are offering a special adoption fee if you are a senior ($100).
Hey -- The incredible photographer Molly Steele made me a video! Check it out below, then check out my slideshow below that!
