Hello there! My name is Emma (but my foster family calls me Roxie), and yes, I am quite aware that I am stunning! I've been here with the rescue since DECEMBER! Can you believe it? Yep, neither can I! Probably because I'm a black dog. I hear that black dogs get overlooked a lot. 

So, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am a southern belle. I lived with a man who did not treat me very nice so when I got here I was very scared of men, but my foster dad has taught me that all men aren't bad! Boy was I happy to learn that!

I absolutely  people. I'm little nervous at first and may test you a bit, but once you're my friend you are my friend forever! My favorite things are toys and treats. I can't get enough! Oh, and I also very much enjoy long walks. I would love a backyard but if you're willing to take a chance on me I won't require it. I would not like to live in an apartment or condo. I like to discuss things I hear outside and your neighbors would very much NOT like that!

I also enjoy my foster kids. However since I can be nervous with strangers I think that if you have kids they should be 16 or older. Also, I would really like to be your one and only so I can have all of your attention, so please no other pooches. And those things called catsare probably not a good idea either.

I would really, really like a permanent home of my own. My foster family has worked really hard to get me ready for a forever home! I am very smart and already know some basic commands! AND I know how to go potty outside!

Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.  
If you give me a chance I will pay it back ten fold with my love and affection       
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery, rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dogs also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
