Emmett has been working with a behavioral trainer because he had some bad nipping habits before he came into rescue. Meetings with Emmett will gradually increase in length of time as the dog visits the prospective adopter's home for at least the first 3 visits. For this reason, the adopter will need to live in the Metro Denver Area. The first time is a supervised visit. The second time, the dog can stay maybe an hour or 2 if that seems reasonable. The third time will be a sleep over if you and Emmett are up to that. Without the right fosters who can give Emmett the structure and boundaries he needs, he could fall back to his old habits. Also, Emmett should have at least one other dog in his household. Emmett is a very sweet dog and loves being with his humans. Has very good manners, will sit, stay lie down when told to do so. He is very curious and loves investigating new surroundings and objects. He is really funny and has a great personality. His walking on a lead needs a bit of work as he likes to pull. He is very possessive with his crate that he only sleeps in and needs to be in the same room as his humans. He does not like other dogs approaching his crate when he is in it, and even his humans have to be patient. He likes to be left alone once he is inside it. He does not like being locked up in his crate during the day and left in it by himself will bark and his stress levels escalate. Loves going to bed early and will sit watching you with his eyes closing telling you he wants to sleep. He would do well with another dog to play with, preferably his size and a female, he can try to be dominant and his heart believes that he is 3 times bigger than he actually is, and will stand his ground. He is very obedient and house trained, and he waits to go outside. There is no food aggressiveness as he is comfortable having dogs around while he is eating. He does love barking with excitement but will stop when told to do so. It will be better for Emmett to have his humans around for most of the day. He doesn't mind cats if they are slow moving and in the beginning would need a certain amount of supervision and careful introduction. All in all he is a very happy, loving and adorable little boy.
