Here is a VIDEO of BHRR's Emmett shortly after his arrival to BHRR.

He is doing well! He is full integrated with all the dogs here at BHRR.

He is such a real pleasure and joy! So happy and full of himself and just charges through life without any cares…..

It is all I can do to save him from himself some days! LOL :)-

He is going to have to go to a home that is busy and active. One that is not inexperienced as he is not a first time dog owner type of dog. A home does not have to have specific Giant Schnauzer experience yet, they must be dog savvy. AND they must be committed to his continued obedience(yes, it is in our adoption contract) for him to keep moving forward to being the well adjusted, balanced and behaved boy that he is becoming.

He will just as soon walk up to the face of BHRR's Dozer(WHO adores him btw) or a JRT or a CHI to tell them all what he thinks if he feels he has something to say. He is sooooooooooooooooo social and friendly yet; will not take guff from any misbehaving gooberhead out there!

I am loving him! Just loving him!

He has not had any return of prolapsed rectum issues and we continue to monitor and as mentioned before any future adoptive forever home shall have to understand that he may have a relapse and then will require surgery. If this happens during his time at BHRR, we shall do the surgery without a moment's hesitation.

AND though, two vets have already cleared his heart, we shall re-visit this on the 7th of September at his booster visit.

With the way that things are going, she should be available for adoption two weeks after his neuter, which is scheduled for the 11th of September.

He is having a bit of a relapse with the KC and so, giving him RAW honey and making sure he is resting(not an easy feat!).

I will also visit his reverse sneezing with the Vet for when he gets started, it is a  few moments before it settles down. Not uncommon yet; want to be sure that all i's are dotted and t's crossed! Part of BHRR's proactive and preventative Vet care and our full disclosure policy with all our dogs.

I would love to see him in a home with at least one other right matched personality fit as he and BHRR's Cosette, Sir Bounce A Lots and Bunker play and play and play.

For a dog to be truly and well behaved and happy, they should be properly mentall and physically stimulated. 😉

Have I mentioned already just how much FUN he is!!! He is go go go from about 5:30 AM to 4:00 AM the following day if I let him. He is just cramming all the life he can AND there is a lot of life at BHRR to be had…. 😉 into the time he has. He was in a shelter from at least July 26th to when he came to BHRR and who knows what kind of life he had before that and so, I am trying to get him to stop and smell the roses and flowers so to speak….something that BHRR's Snowball taught me many years ago(MISS that girl!).

He is getting there. He is great when it is time to go in his crate, sleeps well and let's me know if he has to go out.

He is learning to just take it easy and relax and not be a million miles a minute. He will now crash at my feet or near me and power snooze and nap instead of falling asleep on his feet as he just does not want to miss anything.

He is learning that life is still here tomorrow for enjoyment and lots of training(something that he is just excelling in! – that butt of his sits and wags and wags in happiness plus eagerness to please!) and play time with all his friends AND he has many at BHRR. He plays and interacts with all the dogs here! NOW, that is one solid puppy!

He has had his second dose of Revolution put on recently too.
