Emmeline came to the SPCA of Texas in October of 2019 after being found with no access to food, water, or shelter. She was terrified of people, and mostly just stayed in the corner of her kennel, depressed and alone. But that wouldn’t be the case for long: our behavior team and foster department got her into a foster home to work on her socialization. With several other dogs in the home to help her learn to trust humans, Emmeline’s personality slowly but surely began to shine through.
Her foster parents describe her as sweet and spunky. Emmeline loves sticking to a schedule, so she will excitedly wake up her foster family with morning kisses and snuggles when it’s time to get up and start the day! She’s particularly attached to her foster dad, and sticks to him like glue when he’s relaxing on the couch.
While Emmeline has made excellent progress, she is still fairly skittish and not comfortable walking on the leash yet. She is hoping for a home with at least one other dog, a fenced-in yard, and adults only. Emmeline is going to take some time to adjust to her new home, and she’ll need a family willing to be patient and supportive as she continues to overcome her past. We see glimpses of Emmeline’s bravery and we are so proud of the pup she is becoming.
Emmeline is available for a no-pressure trial adoption! Instead of outright adopting her, you get to take Emmeline home for a few weeks to see if she’s a good fit for your home before making things official. To make an appointment to meet Emmeline, please visit spca.org/dogadopt.
