Em is a very sweet, lovable little dog. She is initially stand-offish until she determines whether you are trustworthy or not. Once she decides she likes you, she wants to be right beside you all the time. She tends to gravitate towards women over men but does not appear to be scared.
Em loves belly rubs and treats and will do pretty much anything for either of those things. She goes into her kennel willingly and is great in her kennel at night and as long as she can see someone in the room with her. Once you leave the room she whines and barks but her foster family is working on this with her.
Em has great off leash recall once she settles into her new surroundings. She walks fairly well on leash and her foster family is working to make this better.
During Em’s vet appointment, the vet expressed concern over her weight. While she is not obese, she is overweight and the vet would like to see her loose about 4lbs initially and then re-evaluate how she is doing at that point.
Em is available for adoption April 23rd. Applications can be found at www.prairieskydogrescue.ca
