Last winter, Emily–just a puppy, then–was found wandering around Dearborn in the cold and brought in to the .
Now nearly seven months old, this black pit bull terrier weighs 25 pounds and is ready to go to a permanent home.
A big fan of car rides, toys, and a good game of fetch, her foster mom says that Emily is full of spunk and personality. She loves to give kisses, and is currently attending obedience training to learn basic commands–some of which she already knows!
Emily shares her foster home with older children, as well as other cats and dogs. She gets along wonderfully with all of them. Emily is also housetrained and crate-trained.
