ABOUT ME: Hi I'm Emmeline, a tiny pittie mix weighing about 40 lbs. I came to the SPCA of Texas in October of 2019 when I was found with no access to food, water, or shelter. I was understandably very fearful when I arrived at the shelter- I spent most of my time cowering in a corner. Thankfully, I found a loving foster home to help me learn to trust.

PERSONALITY: My foster mom describes me as sweet and spunky! Once I'm comfortable with you, I like to wake my humans up with kisses and cuddles. I absolutely ADORE my foster dad and love hanging out with him. If he's on the couch, I'm usually snuggled up right next to him or laying on his lap. I'm still pretty skittish in general and I even startle myself sometimes, but I feel confident enough to share my opinions with my foster parents when I have something to say!

DOGS: Yes please! I'll need at least one friendly, patient, male pup in the home, my size or bigger. I love roughhousing with my foster siblings, especially the boys!

CATS: I did well with the kitty in my previous foster home.

MY DREAM ADOPTER: Will be very patient and willing to take things very slow with my while I adjust to my new surroundings. Ideally, my family will have experience with fearful rescues since my rehabilitation is an ongoing process! I'm looking for parents who will want to continue this journey with me.

HOUSING: I'll need a calm, quiet home with adults only please. My house should have a private, securely fenced in yard, as I have not progressed enough to walk on leash.

SPECIAL NOTE: Potential adopters get to take me on a test drive by doing a trial adoption! Fill out an inquiry form today for more information.
