Better dust off those sneakers if you’re interested in adopting Emmett because this 9 month-old Golden Retriever/Spaniel mix neutered male is definitely a busy guy! Emmett loves to play, play, play, take a power nap, and play some more! We don’t know how he ended up homeless at an overcrowded county dog shelter but he may have proved to be too much puppy for his previous family. From the shelter, Emmett made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could enjoy life in a foster home while searching for a permanent new home. Emmett loves playing with other dogs so having an active canine pal or two in his new home should help keep him occupied. He also loves toys of all kinds and can easily keep himself entertained with a full toybox. This guy is super-cute and very photogenic—he was a real ham in front of the camera! He is working on crate-training and housetraining in his foster home and will need to continue both once adopted. This guy is definitely worth the time and effort. You’ll be rewarded with an outstanding companion for years to come. Emmett weighs about 25 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Emmett. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
