Emmitt came from the Tipton Animal Shelter a year ago February in the company of an older female named Bay. I tried to place them together, but had no luck. Bay passed away a few months ago. Emmitt is approximately 5-6 years old and has a very gentle, sweet, somewhat timid disposition. He is submissive with other dogs. We have been working to slim him down, but it has been work. He came into rescue emaciated and filled out quickly. He is heartworm negative, current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. Would make a wonderful companion for a single person or a couple. Young kids would be too much for him. He would not hurt them, but I think they would make his life stressful.
