Biography

Emmett is a 1.5 year old, 22 lb Chihuahua/Cattle dog mix. I have had Emmett since he was about 4 months old and he has lived in a house with a large dog and three cats. He has also had experience around Ducks, Chickens, and Goats. While he has never shown aggression towards any small animals, he does tend to be very interested in them, and you can see some of the herding dog behaviors reflected in him.

Emmett is a sweet dog who craves attention from people and pets alike. He is incredibly eager to please, is crate trained, and can sit, lay down, and roll over. He is also pretty good on a leash.

Emmett loves to run around outside and would thrive in a house with a big back yard and people who have the time and energy to put into playing with him and training him. I think as he gets older, Emmett will prove quick to pick up on commands. He is also a dog who wants to be in your lap and be cuddled, but does not like to be picked up.

While I think he would be happiest in a house with another energetic dog, Emmett can be a little jealous and will push his way into all interactions with other dogs. This can look like pushing other dogs out of the way, bringing toys, and playful nipping.

Overall, he is a good boy who could use a home that has the time and space to be more attentive to him in his early years.
