Ember is a 4 year old, 40 lb. spayed female ACD in Damascus, PA.

She is up to date on her rabies vaccine, immaculately housebroken, very smart, friendly, LOVES kids.(Currently lives with a one year old, a three year old, and a ten year old), LOVES playing frisbee or fetch with a tennis ball or toy and will continue until you are ready to quit. :)


She settles nicely in the house though, and enjoys a comfy couch or chair. She does need a fenced yard or a tie out (not ideal), which is what she's on now, because she will run off after deer or other wildlife. That's dangerous for her, so she needs to be kept safe.


She doesn't like to give up the toy or frisbee but will if you insist (eventually) or if you have a second one to throw. She can be grabby with the toys, so you have to be careful. She has accidentally inflicted minor injury on hands when trying to grab a toy she doesn't want to give up. Not nasty, she just doesn't want to give them up.


She has no food issues with humans at all. She's not been around many other dogs, but those she has been are either her size or larger. Not sure how she'd be with smaller ones.


She pulls on leash, so a harness might work best for leash walking. NO CATS!!!! And no other small pets.


Sadly, the baby in the home is allergic. A vet reference and home visit for any potential adopters will be required as will a donation to ACDRA.


Ember is located in Damascus, PA, and any potential adopter must be willing to come to meet her with the current dog(s).
