Emmylou - 11-12 years old (Fostered in Pittsboro, NC)


9/19/19: Emmylou is a spunky old girl. We call her an ancient puppy. She was most likely an outside only dog, so everything inside the house is new to her. She love, love, loves to play with toys and wrestle with our resident 3yo boxer Izzabelle. She has so much energy that she frequently wears Izzabelle out! She never stops wagging her nub...literally ever! She is super affectionate and walks well on a leash when she wants to go the direction that you are going! She would do best in a home that has a fenced in yard.

10/2/19: Hi, It's me Emmylou! I just wanted to make an announcement, in case you weren't aware I actually identify as a 5-7 year old boxer. Like any proper southern lady, we will no longer discuss my actual age, gotta keep the boys guessing! I may have some gray sparkles on my face but don't let that fool you, my foster mom says that if Energizer Batteries needs a new spokes creature it should be me....bunnies smunnies!
I would really love to have my very own person to follow around all day and snuggle with. I love to be petted, give tiny little kisses, and boop you with my muzzle. Because I was previously an outside only dog, I would prefer a home that has a nice fenced in yard and possibly a doggie door. I am still learning to only potty outside and wear diapers when I am inside to prevent any accidents on my foster mom's carpet. But she says I am getting better everyday and even telling her when I need to go instead of her taking me out every hour.
I sure do hope that there is a loving family out there for me!

10/9/19: Hi ya'll Emmylou here. Everyone tells me that I'm ancient, but bless their hearts, they have no idea what they are talking about! Ya see, a proper Southern lady never reveals her true age...therefore, as far as ya'll know I am 6 years old! I love to be close to my foster mom, like really really close. I love to run around in the back yard chasing and tormenting my foster sister who by the way is actually the resident old lady even though she is only 3!
Foster mom here. Please don't let this little girl's (and I do mean little, she is extremely small and is just over the weight limit to be considered a pocket boxer) age fool you she is super spunky. The vet said that for her age, she is one of the healthiest Boxers that he has ever seen, with the exception of the heartworms of course.
Please give this spunky old girl a chance she will win you over!
