The boys have had some HUGE breakthroughs thank you to the amazing work put in by their foster parents Kirsten and Mike! Thank you so much! These boys really need a home to call their own though, so if you’re looking for an amazing dog – please send us those applications!
This is Emmitt, and you will never find a sweeter dog! The vet thinks he’s around 3 years old, and he’s a neutered Greyhound x. He is a true gentle giant, weighing in at around 95 lbs and tall enough to easily steal from the kitchen counter when standing on four legs! Emmitt was one of five Greyhound x dogs rescued from a farm in Saskatchewan. He shared a dog run with his ‘brother’, Dillon, while they both suffered horrific neglect and abandonment, they have both come such a long way!
Emmitt is a very handsome man with a heart of gold. He gets along well with all of his four-legged siblings and would do great in a home with both cats and dogs! Emmitt loves his foster family so much but does enjoy spending his days laying in the sun in the back yard. His new family should have a fenced-in yard that he can spend his days lounging in.
He enjoys going for walks and is working on learning to walk on a loose leash. He never reacts to other dogs or cats we encounter along the way but is sometimes scared by large or loud passing vehicles. He absolutely loves toys! He also has the most adorable habit of very gently stealing, and taking to his crate, anything he can pick up and carry. If you’re missing a sock, slipper, blanket, towel, dog bed, bath mat, pet food bowl, or sweater, chances are it’s in Emmitt’s crate. Don’t worry, though. He doesn’t chew on or ruin anything he takes. He just likes to have things. He has learned that he likes treats and will take them very gently from your hand.
Emmitt is a very intelligent boy who picks up on instructions easily and is generally very compliant with whatever is asked of him. He’s calm and quiet and adores the people he’s near, trusts and loves. With time and patience, he is going to be the most exceptional companion.
All the dogs we pulled out of Saskatchewan that day are amazing and show no signs of aggression. They all tend to be shy and cautious of new situations but with their backgrounds who can blame them? They have come such a long way with overcoming their fears and learning to love again with the help of their amazing foster parents. Although these sweethearts may need a bit of extra time and patience, we know you’ll not find a more beautiful and gentle companion.
Emmitt will need a home with another canine buddy to show him the ropes! Emmitt is great with other dogs and cats!
Unfortunately, both Dillon and Emmitt have suffered some kidney damage due to neglect suffered in their previous situation. We have been working with vets to improve their kidney function, so they can go on living a much happier life than they had! Their incredible foster mom has worked so hard to find a perfect diet that really works for these boys and their issues. They don’t seem to be bothered at all by their medical condition and are thriving in their foster home – you would never know that there was anything wrong. This will more than likely be a life-long issue but with proper nutrition (Notes on their amazing and super researched diet will go with them) they should both go on and live healthy and happy lives!
Emmitt has lived most of his life as a neglected dog – we’re hoping there is someone out there who is willing to adopt him and treat him like the absolute incredible dog he is. He’s been waiting a long time for a home – could that be yours?
