Emmett came to the shelter in February of 2014. He was sent to Bay Vet to be neutered, because we didn’t have our own surgery room at the shelter yet. Dr. Sue had lost her dog J.J. six months prior, and was feeling that empty hole in her heart very keenly, when this timid little ball of fur with big sad eyes grabbed her by the heart. He never went back to the shelter. When he first came to us he always looked so sad that he was named after the clown, Emmett Kelly. Emmett had some behavior issues, mostly due to insecurities, that Dr. Sue was unable to help him with on her own. She enlisted the help of Dave Johnson, who taught her how to make Emmett into a happy, more secure dog. He still has his baggage, and doesn’t do well in large groups of strangers which is why he isn’t here tonight. But he’s at Bay Vet every day, and has become the office’s “Walmart Greeter”. We love Emmett, and are so happy to have seen him blossom!
