I'm Adoptable

Female
Boxer mix

Emily
Emily is just your typical sweet, snuggly, playful, loving little girl! Emily is the perfect size at about 30 Lbs. She loves all other animals (including cats and pet bunnies). Balls and stuffed squeaky toys are #1 on her list but will only run around and play outside. Inside her home she is a relaxed couch potato that can be left home alone for up to 6 hours uncrated and just sleeps. Emily knows basic obedience commands and is always looking to learn something new. Emily is also 100% potty trained and waits at the door to go out, will go right away with a "hurry up" command on leash and has never chewed anything except her own toys. She is an amazing dog that would make a great addition to any family!
The adoption fee for Emily is $300

To adopt Emily please fill out an adoption application
