Hello there! My name is Emmy. I am a 9-year-old, female Black/Tan Chihuahua mix weighing in at 7½ pounds. My foster mom is always bragging about how sweet, gentle and well-mannered I am. If you want to be my friend, all you have to do is pick me up or pet me as I just love the attention. I spend my time following my human around the house hoping they will sit down so I can be next to them. I am very polite - I wait to be invited and will not push my way in. I’m not a jumper so I would need to be picked up to be next to you - lucky for you though I only weigh 7½ pounds. My foster mom doesn’t have large dogs or cats so she doesn’t know if I would like them. I do get along with the other small dogs in my foster home. I have learned to be patient and to wait my turn to be near my foster mom. A few times I have played with the other dogs and with the toys but I would be fine as the only dog – I would love to have you all to myself. I do well on a leash – but of course if you have a secure fenced yard that would be great. I do like the great outdoors but I wouldn’t be a very good hiker. I ride well in the car. If I’m going on a long ride my foster mom puts me in a crate to keep me safe. I sleep in my crate at night and when my foster mom has to leave the house– sometimes I will whine softly because I want to be with my human but if you ignore me I will quiet down. I would really like being your bunk buddy on the big bed. I’m doing really well with my house training as long as someone is home part of the day to take me out. I’m not a pee pad kinda girl. I’ll even go potty outside when it’s raining if my foster mom carries me out. I’m pretty quiet! My foster mom has only heard me bark 2 or 3 times- so don’t count on me to let you know if someone is at the door.

I would do best in an adult home or one with children at least 8 years of age. I’m up to date on my vaccines, heartworm and flea prevention. I’m microchipped, spayed, and had my teeth cleaned. My adoption fee is $100.
