Esmeraldarae * Bonded to TiaMowry *

DOB: 10/31/2015
Adoption Fee: $125

Hi, I am Esme! I was rescued from a shelter in Puerto Rico. I lived at the shelter for two years, so I am adjusting to my new life in a home. I am working with a trainer in my foster house, she brings tasty treats! My foster family is helping me gain confidence with treat games, snuffle mats, and other search and find games. I live with other dogs and I have a special place in the house just for me! I like watching the other dogs and I don't mind if they visit me. I am very shy, sweet, and still finding myself. I am potty pad trained. I would love someone to adopt me who has time, patience, a soft gentle touch, and experience or dedication to working with fearful dogs. 

In the meantime, if you have questions or are interested in me, please fill out an adoption application at

An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal.

Please check out our website, for more details and additional pictures on any of our animals!
