Arrival Story:
Emo is a darling "pocket boxer" who we estimate is about four years old. This fawn boy was found wandering the streets emaciated, anemic, and riddled with nasty parasites. He also had many infected wounds that lead us to believe he was attacked by another dog. Luckily for Emo he found reprieve in a wonderful foster home where he has been nursed back to health by his foster mom whose paid job is a nurse in a veterinary hospital. Emo is gaining weight, his wounds have healed, his parasites are gone, and his anemia is almost normalized. At his full weight he should be around 45 pounds. Emo's foster mom does not think that Emo has every spent time inside a home prior to his rescue. She says that he seemed fascinated by everything and that nothing inside a house seemed familiar to him. He has settled in beautifully and is making excellent progress with training and home manners. In addition, his sweet personality has absolutely blossomed! He has recently started delighting in toys & balls and loves to sit by his foster parents on the couch. He happily wags his nubbin' tail and gives sweet kisses. He loves to please and therefore is very easy to train...he has already learned "sit" "wait" and "watch me". He also waits patiently for his meals, even though he was starving for so long. He walks nicely on his leash and is crate trained. Emo gets along very well with the other dog in his foster home, who is about the same size as him. He is too interested in cats to be placed in a home with them. We think he will do very well with children, as long as they don't mind getting gentle kisses! Emo is a darling boy who is ready to meet his forever family!
