Emily – Adoption Pending!


born ~April 2018

40 lbs.

Crate trained!


Welcome Emily! Emily is an adorable 8 month old dalmatian x boxer mix. She currently weighs around 40 pounds, and we think she’ll top out around 50-60 pounds. Earlier this year Emily hurt her tail from wagging it too much, but we are glad to say that she has recovered from her case of Happy Tail!.

Emily has almost mastered potty training! Emily doesn’t have a consistent potty signal just yet, but knows to wait until Foster Mom lets her go outside to do her business. She as also completely mastered crate training! She will walk right in on command and settles in quickly without whining. Emily has also mastered going to the dog park – you can often find her there playing with anyone who is willing, or running around playing a game of chase with the dogs there.

Emily is great with familiar and unfamiliar folks! While at a recent ACR outreach event, she was friendly as can be with college kids, adults, and even those in electric wheelchairs! As far as dogs go, she loves them – especially dogs that love to roughhouse! Her eagerness to roughhouse can overwhelm some dogs, but Emily is working on learning which dogs to play rough with and which dogs to tone it down with. As far as energy goes, Emily has a lot of it. Since she is a puppy, she is full of puppy energy. She would do well with an active family who is able to take her on walks, trips to the dog park, or play with her throughout the day!

When Emily isn’t running outside or trying to find her next adventure, you can catch her trying to get some cuddles with Foster Mom. She loves attention and snuggling, but understands that she can’t get attention 24/7. 😊
