Please meet Emmy, our Adoptable Dog of the Week from Emmy is a female adult Shepherd mix from Baton Rouge, LA. She is already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Emmy’s Story:

Meet Emmy. She’s a Shepherd mix around 2 to 3 years old, weighing about 40 lbs. Emmy is current with vaccinations, spayed, heartworm negative and microchipped. Emmy was adopted from CAA about a year ago but has been returned to her then foster because she’s timid around large men. Emmy is sweet and smart and well behaved. She knows basic commands, is housebroken and crate trained. She loves her kennel and kennels right away without protest. She still needs some work on her leash walking skills – we suspect she wasn’t walked very much in her adoptive home. She’s very eager to please, so with time, training, patience and plenty of love, Emmy should very well and will be an awesome companion. We don’t know what Emmy’s life was like before she ended up at CAA but suspect she wasn’t treated right by a large man. She needs someone to help her learn to trust. She gets along well with her foster mom’s small dog, but we don’t know about cats. Emmy is a wonderful, happy girl.
