Learning Crate Training!


“If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff.”
– Remy, from Disney’s Ratatouille 

Meet Remi, a big fluffy bundle of love with the most beautiful blue eyes. Remi is just about 2.5 years old and weighs in at a hefty 73 pounds. You’re sure to fall in love with this majestic yet goofy guy just as quickly as we have! 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Remi is housebroken! He sleeps through the night and goes to the door when he’s gotta go. What a smart boy! Now, if only we could convince him the crate isn’t scary during the day…. We’re still working on it with him, but in the meantime, he typically does well when left loose in a (doggy-safe) room. 

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Remi is currently living in a house with other dogs, where he is always–repeat, always–down to play. He loves to pester his foster siblings until he can convince one of them to wrestle with him. Because of his energy level and need for mental stimulation, he’s likely to do well in a home with another dog who will keep him company and help him perfect his wrestling moves. (In Remi-land, all dogs are friends, but all cats might be food, so… no cats, please!)

Behavior around People

Remi can be slow to warm up, but once he does, he LOVES people! He is very friendly and loves cuddles with his person–we’ve been told, in fact, that after a full day, he’s also a champion night snuggler! And yes, like that clingy boyfriend you had in college, sometimes he can be a little needy (he just loves you so much, okay??), but don’t worry–his quirks, like his overexcited nibbling on your arms, are adorable, and he’s easily soothed with the attention you were already planning to lavish upon him.

Exercise Needs

Because he’s a young, big boy, Remi’s got boundless energy! So no, if you’re looking for a Netflix pal, Remi’s not your guy. But if you’re on the go and willing to keep him stimulated–some combination of canine sibling(s), puzzle games, trips to the park, and/or new adventures–Remi is ready and willing to be your partner in crime. (Note: That’s just an expression. Please do not commit actual crimes, with or without Remi.)

Remi is an active, gorgeous boy with a ton of love to give to his forever family. Interested in meeting him? Contact us today!
