My name is Emmett - I’m an 11-week-old cute, adorable Black and Tan Chihuahua mix (they say some Min Pin in the mix). I weigh in at 4 pounds as of 2/04/21. 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. 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 am up to date for my age on my vaccines but until I’ve had the rest of my puppy shots I need to follow the guidelines that SBRET has set up for pups like me. 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.
