Emmit is an 11-year old Newfoundland Chow mix. He was surrendered to the animal shelter where I was working as a five pound, five-week old puppy because he was “too big.” I took him home as a foster puppy & he never left. We expected he’d be a giant Newfoundland, but he’s only 65 lbs.
Emmit has been our healthy dog until the last year or so. He’s showing his age with tons of lumps and bumps (all but one have been benign). He also has terrible hips & we now have a list of daily meds to keep him happy and comfortable.
We just started an Instagram account for Emmit: https://instagram.com/old_dog_emmit/
