Meet Emmett!

Emmett is a mellow, gentle, playful, loving and friendly one-year-old, 60-pound, American Bulldog looking for a new loving home. Emmett was living with a 20-year-old guy who joined the Navy; his poor mom is suffering from cancer and didn’t have the energy to care for a dog. Emmett was lucky to find a safe place with Lake Shore Animal Shelter, and even better … landed in a fantastic foster home.

Emmie gives plenty of tail wags and kisses, is playful, and friendly with other dogs … and good with dog-friendly cats. He already knows the commands sit, leave it, and give paw.

With a little more training, he’ll make a wonderful companion. Emmet is crate-trained and housebroken, does well with children – but does best with older kids who he can’t knock down in his happy enthusiastic manner. He loves to go for walks, and although he’s a strong boy – he is good on leash. In fact, when he’s in the mood, he brings his foster mom his leash so they can take a walk together.

Emmett loves to play with soccer balls, tennis balls, bones, and toys. His only fault is that he loves people, and other dogs so much, he’ll jump a fence to get to them. So, he should never be left unattended in the yard. He is extremely healthy, neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped and heartworm-tested

We met Emmett through Petraits Pet Photography who helps rescues find loving homes in the Chicago, Illinois area.
