There's lots to love about Emmalyn. She has a coat as soft as velvet and the sweetest demeanor. Emmalyn loves people and other dogs. She keeps her caregivers in Dogtown laughing with her hound-dog antics. She's got a good nose and will follow any fun scents she finds, but she's been working on her training and is getting better at focusing. Emmalyn was born in 2013. She can be anxious in new places, so an active home with consistency and a regular routine would be perfect for her.

As part of the Ruff Adventure Dog Adoption Program, Emmalyn qualifies for a free flight home and waived adoption fee. And because Ruffwear loves active dogs, they will also provide a gear kit customized for the activities this pet loves to do and for the climate you live in.
