    Emma 7's Story . . .

    Original:  “An agile little girl, she can jump over the back of the sofa in her foster home!”

    Emma and Toby lived with a family in South Carolina.  But, when the pair started having problems with the other dogs, the family decided to rehome both of them.  That’s when they became MAESSR dogs.

    Emma had a history of recurrent urinary tract infections.  MAESSR's vet diagnosed a recessed vulva that was causing the problem.  So Emma had episioplasty surgery to correct this.  She should now be free of the urinary issues that have bothered her.

    This little girl has excellent house manners.  Housetrained and crate trained, Emma loves her crate.  An agile little girl, she can jump over the back of the sofa in her foster home! When she is not leaping, she can be found hanging out on the back of the couch.

    Emma is friendly with new people who come into the house but might lightly jump on them.  She was really good at her vet and groomer appointments.

    This youngster knows “sit” and “down” and loves to go on walks.  She doesn’t pull on her leash either.  She rides well in the car, too.  When selecting toys, Emma goes for the squeaky balls.  Outside, typical Springer, she enjoys chasing birds and rabbits.

    A real cuddle bug, Emma loves to be with her people and she is all set for her forever home!
