Emmett is a 2 year old energetic and playful Boxer boy. He just loves other dogs and actually seems to prefer them to people sometimes - he will box with his Boxer siblings for hours until they are all tuckered out! At least everyone's getting good exercise! You may notice that Emmett was born with a defect in his jaw that makes it a little crooked so his tongue hangs out the side and that he has a snaggle tooth. We find it an adorable and endearing quality to this boy who is already just so cute, and know it's hard to take Emmett seriously when he stares at us with that side-tongue hanging out! Emmett has a unique and quirky personality too - he brings lots of laughter and joy to our household everyday with his funny expressions and silly personality. It's sometimes like he's always looking to us for approval and answers - we wish we could speak his language and tell him what a good boy he is!
While Emmett does love other dogs and is doing great in his foster home (he obeys all our commands and is a very sweet boy) he is, at this time, wary of strangers, especially small children. We are working on socializing him to move past these fears, and he has already shown great improvement. Since Emmett is high energy and likes to play rough (which his foster siblings love, but people sometimes don't) we recommend that Emmett not go to a home with children. Also, since Emmett is such a young boy looking for good guidance and leadership in life, we hope he can be adopted by a family or person that has experience with Boxers - really one that will "show him the rules" and not spoil him (just yet). Emmett is a total follower who responds very well to rules and commands, and is a calm gentleman on the leash. So, anyone interested in a Boxer that wants to just do whatever you say would really be a great fit for Emmett's forever home. Are you ready to bring this sweet boy and his side-tongue into your life? If so, fill out an application today! Emmett is being fostered by Dana and Matt.
