Emma is a funny, goofy, playful dog with a very loving nature towards her owners. She can be suspicious and timid of new people until introduced properly, and then she is fine.
Because she can be a bit of a scaredy cat, Emma is best suited to a quiet household without too much activity going on. And best she lives with adults and older children (over 15 years) only.
Emma is an easy dog to care for. She is quiet and clean and is always keen to snuggle up on the sofa for the evening. She really enjoys her toys, walks and runs, and adores playing with other dogs. She does play a bit rough, so another placid dog who doesn’t mind a bit of rough and tumble is best. Emma will literally play for hours on end, so another dog in the family would be a bonus for Emma.
Emma has been around stock (dairy cows) and has absolutely no reaction to them whatsoever. She will however chase small furry animals such as rabbits and cats.
As with all Pound Hounds, Emma must be allowed access to inside the home so she can really be a part of the family.
