Introducing sweet Emma! Emma joined the RAGOM family about a week ago and is full of puppy love to give. Along with puppy love, comes puppy mischief! Emma is an 11 week old, golden retriever puppy.
Emma was diagnosed with primary seborrhea, kennel cough and coccidia. Emma’s adoptive family will need to be committed to treating any skin flare ups that happen due to seborrhea and Emma will need to be on fish oil, along with possibly other medications to help prevent and treat skin issues. A high quality grain free food may also help her. She is on antibiotics for kennel cough and coccidia, and has not shown any symptoms in a couple of days. Emma is all UTD on her vaccinations and will be spayed this week. Overall, she is a very healthy puppy, with some minor ailments that will be cleared up soon.
Emma is your typical, adorable puppy and needs a lot of stimulation, so she learns appropriate behavior and can grow up to be a confident dog. Emma enjoys getting into a bit of mischief, as all puppies do. Emma also loves to be picked up and always enjoys cuddling. She will just melt in your arms when you pick her up. At Emma’s age, we wouldn’t expect her to be house trained yet, but she is very smart and is learning quickly. She does her business right away outside as soon as she hits the grass. Emma keeps her crate clean and has not had any accidents in her crate.
She has had a few adventures this week, including lots of play time with our resident dogs, playing with Barbies and buddies, as well as just running free in the yard. Emma enjoys all the play time she can get!
Please remember as you look at her adorable pictures:
· Puppies are a LOT of work in their first year!
· Puppies have a small, immature bladder and cannot go a full work day without being let out. You will need to make arrangements for someone to come in midday until she is about 6 months old.
· Puppies NEED obedience, socialization and manners training! RAGOM gets many unmannered and under-socialized dogs surrendered due to the simple lack of training and socialization when the puppy was young. This is a crucial time for puppies to learn about so many things!
If you are interested in Emma joining your family, contact your placement advisor. She will be ready to join her new family within a couple of weeks!
Emma would like to say a special thank you to the 6th grade class who helped to write her bio above.
