Emmy is not even a year old. She has spent most of her short life in different shelters. She is very energetic and anxious to please; even more so than the average shepherd. She came into Rescue without any training and she has come such a long way. However, she will still need someone to continue obedience with her. She would make an excellent agility or rally competition dog. She is good with people but might be a little rambunctious with smaller children. She is particular about her doggie friends. This is probably because of the number of dogs she has seen in the shelters and having to defend herself as a puppy. However, once she gets her confidence and understands the other dogs are friendly, she LOVES to play!
