Labrador Retriever & Basset Hound Mix


If I smile real cute, will you make me a part of your family? We sure hope so, Emerson! He is trying to show you just how handsome and well behaved he is, in the hopes that you’ll take him home! This happy fellow is a 9 month old lab/basset hound/dachshund mix, weighing in at about 42 lbs. He is super smart, very attentive, and easy to train... mostly because he loves the doggy treats and attention he gets for his good listening skills. Emerson is very playful and affectionate, and loves hanging out with his foster family. He was rescued by STARS from a kill facility. Poor guy was very scared there until Willene, our amazing leader, came to his rescue! He was given lots and lots of love and support and has now flourished into the amazing pup he was always meant to be. Emerson loves everyone he meets and is great with children. He loves playing with other dogs and will often be seen carrying his toys around with him wherever he goes! Emerson will be wandering into Petco, 10 Chapel View Blvd, Cranston, RI on January 25th from 11-4 and January 26th from 11-2. If interested in adopting, please go to to fill out the adoption application. Once you have completed an application, we are happy to answer any questions! If your application is approved and the first application for a particular pup, you will be first in line to meet the pup at our next adoption event. Our adoption fee is $500. This includes spay/neuter, microchipping, deworming, and all age-appropriate vaccinations.
