- Playful dog buddy

My name is Emmett - I’m 5 months old and 7.3 pounds as of April 19. I am an adorable male Black and Tan Chihuahua mix (they say some Min Pin in the mix). It’s very important you read what my foster mom has written about me. I’m not your average puppy. Don’t let the way I look fool you - as cute as I am, I am very strong-minded - I really need an active home and another playful dog in my life. I really like playing with the other dogs in my foster home - they are all bigger than me but that doesn’t matter much - sometimes I even win at tug o’ war with the bigger dogs! I have A LOT of energy – I play hard and sometimes too rough so I wouldn’t be good with children at this stage of my life. I would need someone with puppy experience to help me learn how to share and not be grumpy at times. Puppy classes would be great for me!! I’m a happy playful snuggly puppy most of the time but I do have my moments when I think I’m the one in charge. If you disturb me when I’m sleeping or playing, I get grumpy if it’s not a good time for me - my foster mom has been helping me with this and I have gotten better. I like to run so a fenced yard would be great but I do very well on a leash for such a young pup - I HAVE TO BE ON A LEASH AND HARNESS WHEN NOT IN A SECURE AREA – I WILL GIVE YOU A RUN OF A LIFETIME. I’m doing really well with my potty-training and I would need someone home part of the day to help me continue – I will use pee pads if I don’t get outside in time. I sleep at night in my crate next to my foster mom’s bed (I need to know she’s close by). Most every night I wake during the night whining and my foster mom takes me out to potty and then I will sleep the rest of the night- but I am an early riser.

I have been on medical hold as we got my tummy issues straightened out and as long as I stay on prescription ID food for right now I am doing just great!!

I am up to date on my vaccines and I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on my flea and heartworm prevention. If you have the kind of home I need and some puppy experience, go to sbret.com and get your application approved – be sure to ask for Emmett and hopefully we can play Tug O’ War soon. My adoption fee is $175.
