From the Foster:

Emilee, Emilee, Emilee
Has the cute, happy face of July
All kisses, cuddles, and wagging tails
And a love they say you can't buy.

But you can rescue her.
For dog lovers like Sinatra, Emilee will be quite the little muse. She may inspire poetry or picnic lunches, a short film or sleeping in, an epic road trip or an evening walk in the woods. This sweet, spunky girl is up for anything!

Emilee arrived with a real zest for life. She loves walks and has perfect leash manners, though will sometimes pause to watch bikes or runners pass. She gets along well with but mostly ignores the two small senior dogs in her foster home and would likely be fine with a dog-savvy cat. It's unknown at this time whether she would be super playful with a younger canine companion or just be a cuddle buddy. She is most interested in being near her foster mom - can't be close enough or more excited to greet her when she gets home. She will do great with most lifestyles but would prefer a family who can at least visit her to break up a long work day. 

While she loves her people, she does get nervous in new situations and with new people, and will growl to express this. However, if people go slowly and act appropriately, she is totally fine - she just prefers slow intros to new people and situations - just like many humans! Because of this, I'm not sure how she will do with young kids (under 12) and I think it's probably best for her to have a home without small children. 

She is crate trained and house trained on a schedule. She whines initially when being left alone but settles and rests comfortably after some time. She is currently living with shared walls without an issue. There is some momma terrier in her that very occasionally gives a cautious alert growl to sounds outside or in the apartment hallway of her foster home. She is easily redirected with a verbal cue and it's believed this will lessen naturally as she settles in to her new surroundings, recognizes that she doesn't need to stay on guard anymore to protect her puppy Lacee, and builds love and trust with her forever family. Hopefully she will inspire her forever family to try an obedience class and a play group once in a while to further strengthen that bond!

She is so easy to love and to be around as she really matches the energy of her foster family. If it's time to relax she's comfy on the couch ready for some affection and if it's time to earn some treats or go for a walk she's wiggly and bouncing around with excitement. Emilee agrees with Ol' Blue Eyes that it's a real good bet, the best is yet to come.
