More about Emma Lu

Emma Lu is a sweet, affectionate dog. She was found as a stray and ended up at animal control for three months. We met her one day while at animal control, and knew that she was a fantastic dog and simply wasn`t rescued yet because she was black in color. (Black animals have a tougher time getting rescued.) She loves gettting petted and praised.

She is working on being housebroken and crate trained. She loves playing with other dogs and likes the dogs of the house although she isn`t super careful so probably wouldn`t be the best match with elderly dogs. She`s not a fan of cats or other small critters so a home without them would be ideal.

She is a higher energy dog with a happy go lucky personality. She doesn`t live with kids but we don`t anticipate she would have any issues as long as they don`t mind being accidentally knocked over every now and then when she gets excited. She loves nylabones and playing with toys. A fun personality that is waiting and wanting to be in her forever family. So smart, so sweet, so Emma Lu.
