Emily is Currently Owned By...

Hope: 16 year old border collie x lab mix. Retired from all dog sports, but was a “do-it-all” dog! No one can tell her she is 16 and she still keeps up with the other dogs at home. 

Wilson: 4 year old mini schnauzer X. Wilson does what he wants when he wants! His favourite things to do include eating things he shouldn’t jumping (both when he should and shouldn’t) and tricks. 

Fidget: 6 year old border collie. You aren’t supposed to have favourites, but if I did, it is Fidget. He loves to play disc and perform! 

Shuffle: 2 year old border collie x terrier mix. Shuffle is a sucky boy and loves to cuddle! He is also a fierce competitor and loves to perform his crazy tricks!
