Adopt Emmy

Female American Bulldog /Border Collie 


Introducing Emmy. Emmy came from us from the local Memphis pound. Her foster mom went to meet a different dog, but that dog had already been adopted so it was Fate that she met Emmy that night. At the time, Emmy was a sweet but shy little girl. She was curled up in the corner of her kennel at the pound, just wanting to disappear.

Emmy is now 11 months old, 60 lbs and full of love. She needs a home with another dog (or two or three) and a yard! She can be pretty shy when she's alone, but excels with other dogs to show her that new things are good, new things can actually be pretty awesome.

She is truly amazing with other dogs, she's been sweet to all her fosters, dogs at doggy day care and at the dog park. She is still a little fearful when going to new places, so she'll someone with some patience and willingness to introduce her to new situations. Emmy is a cuddle bug and pretty low to medium energy - she loves to nap as much as she does play. We are so proud to have Emmy as a part of our rescue and look forward to finding the perfect forever home for this very deserving girl.

Her adoption fee is $450 and includes all of her vetting while in our care including but not limited to: annual vaccinations, fecal exams/deworming, heartworm test(negative), and up to date prevention, spay, microchip, and Transport from Memphis to you via Road Home Pet Transport.

Shelter Description

Wilson Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-run, foster-based rescue group in Memphis, Tennessee. We focus on rescuing dogs who are in danger of being euthanized at the city's run shelter and other midsouth shelters. We strive to place dogs in loving homes not only locally but in cities in the Midwest and New England areas.

We keep in touch with our adopters - and not everyone who applies for a dog gets one. We say no as much as we say yes. We are looking for people who feel the same way about their dogs as we do - that they are family and bringing one into your home is a major commitment.

We also appreciate it takes a tremendous amount of trust to adopt a dog before meeting - trust on behalf of the adopter and trust from our fosters. They have to trust that we are sending the dog, who they have loved, to a wonderful new home. This trust is ever present in our minds and not something we take lightly, so we are happy to answer adopters questions. Please do, however remember that we are 100% volunteer run - we have jobs and families and we do our very best to respond as quickly as we can to all inquiries and follow up questions.

We have two vets we use primarily - Cloverleaf Animal Clinic and Walnut Grove Animal Clinic - they are both located in Memphis. Please feel free to call either of their clinics if you are interested in a reference for our rescue.

Areas Served

Wilson Animal Rescue is 501(c)(3) based in Memphis, TN. We are able to transport our dogs upon adoption via Road Home Pet Transport.

Adoption Instructions

We send an adoption application to be potential adopter's, they fill it out and email it back to us. Once we read it over, called references and feel like it may be a good fit, we put the adopters and fosters in contact so they can further discuss the dog. We feel that being completely prepared, and transparent about the dog, is the best way to go. The adopter can ask questions about routine, behavior, etc. We are really looking for a best fit for the dog and adopter. And because all of the dogs are living in homes (no longer in a shelter environment) we really get to know them like they are our own. We get to see who is cat friendly, who really loves having kids around, who may be a little more unsure in new situations, etc.
