K for K-9

The given words:
seven dysphemism (the substitution of a harsh expression for a more neutral one)
emollient (power of softening or as a medicine,soothing, especially to the skin)
obstreperous (resisting control or restraint in a difficult manner,unruly,noisy,boisterous)
damp worm yellow crocus hello scene entwine 

Does one really wonder
That it can be called man's best friend?
It can yelp or holler
or stoop to whine

Reputedly domesticated from wolves
Features in about seven known functions
of assisting police, hunting, pulling loads
herding, aiding handicaps, as pets and protection

Answers to dysphemism in commands
Will then respond emollient in elements
But can turn obstreperous in other instances
all arising from the given treatment

Avoid damp bedding and constantly dewormed
To appear healthily to mirror a yellow crocus
Say hello to an adorable bitch and a resourceful K-9
Great scene entwined with all kindness
