Emma is so sad. She had a family she loved with all her heart and due to some changes, she now needs to be rehomed. She loves her foster family but she really wants a family to call her very own. Emma is exactly what a great boxer girl should be … energetic, playful, part clown, part Velcro, loving, willful, and super super smart! She absolutely MUST be with her people or she pouts. When she loves you, she loves you with all her heart and soul. And when you don’t do what she wants you to, she will let you know by ignoring you and pouting. She will give you 'the look.' She is obedient but has that typical boxer willful streak. She must be with people who love her but who will make sure she knows her place in the family. She is strikingly beautiful and an absolutely amazing girl with the cutest little wiggly boxer butt!
