Emma is an energetic dog that is always ready for play time. If you have a ball or a frisbee she’s ready to run.

Emma is a two year old, Labrador/mix that entered Responsible Pet Care as a stray. Her handlers are getting to know her and have found that she is a smart dog. She knows several commands and seems to understand everything she is asked to do.

The best situation for Emma is to live with an active family with older children. She gets very excited when she greets people so she would not be a good choice for small children. She gets along well with the other dogs at the shelter, but she is not fond of cats.

Emma is ready to become a member of a family that wants a dog to participate in their active life.
