Emma is a shy Sheltie and is wary of new people, places, and situations. If she is frightened, she can panic and bolt. She should be considered a flight risk. Her new home must have a secure fenced yard with direct access into/out of the house (no exceptions to this requirement). She needs a home that has experience with shy dogs, preferably Shelties. Emma has a chronic condition called Rhinitis that causes her nose to run. Oral steroids treat the Rhinitis, but it will likely return, requiring additional treatments. 
Emma has shown herself able to adapt and adjust both in her foster home and as a vacation foster. The personality beneath her shyness is delightful. She is 4 years old and very playful - enjoying indoor play sessions with the other dogs in her foster home. Emma is affectionate and seeks out contact and loves petting and being brushed. She has a happy, joyful nature that shows when she is running in the yard or following her foster people around the house.  Emma is easy to handle and care for.  She will make you smile and even laugh out loud! Click on Emma's photo to learn more about her.

Chester was so happy when he found his best human friend through MNSR! As the "one & only", Chester was showered with love and attention, and his favorite adventures were yearly trips up north to Grand Marais with his dad in the summer, and playtime in the snow in the winter. Chester's dad was so proud of his boy, they were perfect for each other. Chester crossed the Rainbow Bridge on November 5th, 2017 and is very, very missed by his loving dad.
