Hi friends! Eminem here, with an opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to make me your best furry friend! I am a handsome young pup who makes fast friends with everyone I meet. I simply love everyone I meet, including kiddos, and also get along well with other dogs and even kitty cats. My favorite activities include playing with my doggie friends and favorite toys, going for walkies to explore the neighborhood, and spending time soaking up the sun outdoors. And don't let my young age fool you: my foster momma says I am pretty calm for a pup because one of my other favorite activities is curling up for a snuggle and nap!

I am also a very smart boy and will thrive with patient humans who will continue to help me learn. I am mostly potty trained - I have learned to go to the door when I need to do my business but since I am so young I still need to go out frequently while I master holding it for longer lengths of time. I am also working on my leash walking skills and remembering not to excitedly jump up to greet new friends. Fetching Tails requires adopters of puppies like me to sign us up for training classes, and I am looking forward to attending with you by my side. I looooove hearing that I am a good boy and my foster momma describes me as a quick and attentive learner. I would love to be your very good boy, so don't miss your one shot and fill out an adoption application soon!


Puppies are cute, cuddly and looking for a family to call their own. They need an owner who is home often, and willing to help with training, socializing and housebreaking. They need to be let out often so they can learn to go potty outside. Training is required, and we will need to see proof from adopters that puppies have been signed up for classes. They need an owner to be committed to them forever, and in return they will reward you with a lifetime of cuddles, kisses and love. Sound like a commitment you're ready to make? Contact Fetching Tails Foundation!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
