In a Nutshell: Emu is an extremely sweet puppy. She has a lot of puppy energy that she lets out romping with the resident dog in her foster home or playing fetch in the backyard. Once she’s got her energy out, she likes to cuddle up on the couch or in her crate. Emu’s a quick learner who took to mimicking her foster sibling soon after arriving in Portland. We’ve found she can be a bit nervous around young/little/loud kids, but would likely do just fine in a family with older, dog-savvy kids. All in all, she is a well-adjusted, sweet, playful puppy who will be available for adoption beginning with the Worth the Wait List prior to general adoption applications.
