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.
