Emilia is a sweet and energetic 4 year old, 48 lb. Collie/Flat-Coated Retriever mix, who just wants to be with her people and play. She loves going for walks – the longer the better and is great on leash! She just started learning basic commands and is a very quick study! Emilia is happy to sit for a treat and will excel with someone who continues working on her training with her. In the house she loves playing with toys and happily lays with them and carries them around.
She is fairly tall and can reach tabletops and counters with ease and tries to sneak items that she thinks she can chew like remotes, socks, books, etc but redirects well to her toys. This girl can be jumpy when excited, so it would be best if she is in a home without small/young children. She is house trained and happy to settle in for a cuddle or nap on the couch after playtime. She loves the fenced yard at her home so she can run freely, and while she is tall, she has made no attempt to jump over the fence. While not overly barky, Emilia will find her voice and let you know when anyone walks by or comes to the door. She takes a little time to warm up to new people, but once she does she will be your best friend and shadow, following you wherever you go. Emilia would be happy to accompany her new family on hikes or other adventures and would make a great jogging companion.
