Emmett Needs You





I’m Emmett.  My owner thought I was too active and surrendered me. 

I’m a Chesapeake Bay Retriever.  I need a home that understands that we aren’t Labrador Retrievers with wavy coats.  I want an active home because I’m only 5 years old and still very active.  I need an owner who knows has retriever experience and understands we need jobs to do.  I want an active family who wants a big, about 100 lbs., active, strong and athletic boy. 

I’m currently being fostered with 5 other dogs, including another Chessie.  I promise to peacefully co-exist, just don’t expect me to spend my time playing with the other dogs.  I want to play ball, play ball, play ball!  I like my tennis balls more than food! 

I’m fine with kitty cats and small dogs too. 



I walk nicely with an Easy Walk harness. 

On my wish list is a loving home with a swimming pool or waterfront that understands Chessies.  They tell me that swimming would help deplete some of the energy I have.  I’m middle aged and they think swimming will keep my joints and body fit without the pounding of running. 

I’d just love a home with a Chessie family!
