    Here is my story: Emmy was found as a stray in Harnett County. Semi-feral with more of a shut down state than aggressive. After a year she has become comfortable enough to bark when spoken to and freely roam foster mom's house if she desired. She still prefers to seclude herself in a quieter portion of the house and will probably never be a lap dog. She is fully house trained and will use a pee pad if needed. Emmy will need a home that doesn't have much hustle and bustle to help her get out of her shell. Her future home needs to be respectful and allow her to gain confidence and become comfortable on her own time. She does not do well around children so only older respectful children to be considered for Emmy's forever home.
