    Default Lovely young dog in NY/PA area

    Emma came through the shelter spay/neuter program at the vet school, and I absolutely love her. I would 100% keep her for myself if I could convince the husband to agree to it...but for now I'm fostering, since that's the next best thing and I don't think she would do well in a shelter situation.
    Emma is a young adult (reportedly 11 months) who already had a litter of puppies at the shelter before being spayed. She has been treated with Advantage since coming to my house. Emma seems to be mostly housebroken - she understands she needs to pee when we go outside, but I'm not sure if she's figured out the pooping part yet - we're working on it. She's also still learning that whole stair thing...she can go up, but down is harder. She gets along great with dogs (in fact, I think she really benefits from doggy companions) and seems to do fine with cats. She has sort of learned how to sit on command - another work in progress. Emma is very sweet and mostly naps next to you during the day. She stays in a crate at night or when I am out of the house.
    I'm not sure what kind of mix she is (I'm thinking Whippet x Min Pin). She's about 16-17 lbs and could stand to gain a few ounces - definitely big enough to be a jogging partner if that's your thing (she has also gone cross-country skiing!). That said, she's also small enough to be a lap dog if that's more your speed. She has not exhibited any food or toy aggression during her stay here and has been free-fed dry food. Ideally the new adopter would pay the $50 shelter adoption fee, but most importantly I'd like to find her a great home.
    Check out some photos of Emma at http://s686.beta.photobucket.com/use...r/library/Emma (Note: these were taken shortly after she was spayed - she is now e-collar free. )

    What a cutie patootie. I hope she gets a wonderful home. Bless your heart for taking her home to foster her. Home-life is so much better...

    i think you should be a failed foster.........lol.......

    she is adorable.....i am a sucker for those stick up ears...i have toy fox terriers, and she reminds me of a larger version of them...

    Oh tallyho I totally would, but the husband is firm...we have one dog ("my" dog) and two cats ("his" cats), but when I remind him that I have one vs. his two, he then reminds me that I also have a 1500 lb draft cross.
    Touché.

    One more super cute public FB photo! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...8&l=46f9537e3e

    Please pass her info on to ANYONE who might be interested!

    Cleozowner, your husband is mistaken. Horses do not count as they are outside pets. Inside it is still 1:2.

    ptownevt, I like your thinking!
    I had a potential adopter want to meet her, then change her mind before even meeting Emma as she had a friend of a friend who had a min pin and didn't like the dog. Frustrating as I have no clue what breed Emma might be - I don't want my guessing to mean Emma loses a chance at a forever home!

    She is in Ithaca - I often drive down to the Allentown/Lehigh Valley area, so Scranton would be no problem!

    BUMP for this cutie! I have a rescued MinPin mix and they make FABULOUS barn dogs- fiercely independent and full of personality! Sharing with everyone I can think of
