Emmitt is a wonderful 8-year-old male Cocker Spaniel who is a joy to have in the house. He is active but also willing to just hang out. Emmitt was given up because of severe anxiety issues. While his foster mom would like to say that he doesn't suffer from anxiety, she can't. He doesn't like the crate and he doesn't like riding in the car. He is on medication to deal with the anxiety and his foster parents are working with the vet to try and dial in the correct dosage. They are also working with him on becoming more comfortable in his crate and also in the car. He eats in his crate and is not at all reluctant to enter when it's time for dinner. They are also working on small amounts of crating during the day with treats being dropped in, but he may be one of those dogs who is much happier not crated. They are giving him free rein of the house when we are gone for short periods of time. We have had no accidents or issues with things being destroyed.
While Emmitt has a some issues, he is the sweetest boy. He gets along well with the other two Cockers in the foster home. They all play ball in the morning. He walks well on a leash (the fosters use a halter on him). He has the cutest bark which makes his foster mom laugh every time she hears it. Emmitt is very affectionate and usually not demanding.
He would make a great addition to a home where people are home most of the time and with someone who will have some patience in dealing with his anxiety issues.
If not already, Emmitt will be micro-chipped, neutered (if age appropriate), and up-to-date on his shots prior to adoption. If you would like to meet Emmitt to see if he is a good fit for your home, please fill out an Adoption Application online.
