Emily [ADOPTED MARCH 19] is a tri-colored cocker who is estimated to be two years old. We are looking for a very special adopter for a very special dog. Up to this point, life has not been good to Emily. She had lived in a cage in a puppy mill but when the economy took a downward turn and puppy sales slowed down she was dumped in a shelter. The shelter recently had a fire so Emily was forced to share a small outdoor pen with a group of small dogs. The day she came to rescue the temperature was ten degrees. She would have 7 days to find a home or she would be euthanized. Emily has juvenile cataracts. She has been to see the ophthalmologist and it was determined that one eye had a hypermature cataract which should not have surgery and the other had a very tiny cataract. She does see well. She still is somewhat shy but is quickly starting to enjoy human companionship. She is a smart little girl and already has learned to go to the door when she needs to go out. She does fine with other dogs. Emily is both housetrained and crate trained. Because of her background, Emily will need a securely fenced yard. She would do best in a home with another dog.
Update from Emily's Foster Mom: Emily is showing great improvement with overcoming her shyness in her foster home. She now enjoys having people around her and is coming to us seeking out attention. She's also taking treats from us. Emily loves to watch TV next to her people on the couch and enjoys going for walks. As you can see from the photo on the right, Emily loves running and playing in the snow. She gets along great with other dogs.
