|Emmi's first night at her new home!|
When she first arrived she was absolutely terrified. There was a serious effort in place to try to coax her to come out of the safety of her kennel ... sweet, gentle words and treats weren't even enough. Eventually, the transport volunteers had to remove the top half of her kennel. It didn't take long, however, for her to completely win over the hearts of the staff at the Buffalo Animal Humane Society. The staff soon learned of Ebi's love for balls and anything squeaky.
She had her TV debut on December 7th on WCCO! Click here to watch this amazing girl on TV ... she is, without a doubt, a natural TV star!!
Her TV appearance caught the eye of her new family. We got the following update from her mom Angel:
|Playing fetch with her toy|
Every day she gets about 2 hours of ball time in the yard, hangs out on the couch, goes for car rides, loves her butt scratched, checking out the kitties, and sleeps with us in bed! Emmi is really coming out of her shell, and we have come to love her very much! We are still working on basic training like sit, lay, and stay. She knew sit (a little) when we got her, but now she has learned to sit before she eats or cross the street, lay down, and we're having a little trouble with stay. She seems to have a small case of anxiety so we just started desensitization and counterconditioning to "nip it in the bud" now so it won't get worse. But I'll tell you one thing, she sure loves her ball, her elephant, and for sure her sleep!
