Emmylou jumped and licked simulcast host Scott Cox's face as he played with the 8-week-old mixed mutt.

Friday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Julie Johnson, who runs the city's shelter on Mount Vernon Avenue and is also Bakersfield SPCA director, said Emmylou and her siblings are ready to be adopted.

"She was born at the shelter along with her 11 brothers and sisters," Johnson said.

Emmylou and her siblings are available for $80 each. They have all been spayed/neutered and de-wormed.

Johnson said Emmylou will not get too big, weighing 25 pounds tops when she grows up.

"She is a sweet, loving puppy," Cox said.

You can visit Emmylou and other pets at the City of Bakersfield Animal Care Center at 201 Mt. Vernon Ave. or call 832-7387.
