Emmett is a relaly cute tri colored puppy. We think he is a Shepherd mix but we do not know. He is mostly black with tan and white markings. He has a short coat. At three months he weighs 16 pounds so I think he may be a medium sized dog, but I really don’t know for sure. I always tell people to expect 50 pounds plus or minus 25 – figure I’m covered that way!
Emmett is great with dogs, seems to think the cat is a play toy to be pounced on and is fine with children. He was in a foster home with elementary age children for a month and enjoyed them a lot
If adopted by a family with children, a fenced in yard is a must. Otherwords, if adopted by an adult family, or a family with older teen-agers, then dedicated dog walkers would work as well as long leash training
Emmett is super sweet, playful, crate trained and working on housetraining. The weather has made housetraining a bit of a challenge but we are getting there.
Emmett started his life in the shelter world rather young. Just two months old, Emmett was picked up by Animal Control Officers as a stray. Now, you might be asking yourself the same question I ask myself: how is it a two month old puppy can be a stray? More than likely, someone picked him up for free and decided they did not want him anymore and claimed he was a stray so they would not have to pay a surrender fee. No matter, at least he was safe. When old enough we went into adoption but unfortunately he picked up Ringworm fungus. Ringworm is not a worm – it’s like athlete’s foot. It is contagious but it is easy to treat. Emmett’s ringworm is gone and the hair is growing back. But because he had ringworm, that is why we ended up with him. Treating ringworm in a shelter situation is difficult at best.
So, Emmett is now three months old and ready for his forever home and it’s about time!
