Facts about Remy

  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Remy! Remy came to GRAB through a network of rescuers that had
become aware of a little dog left at a pet store. The pet store owner
couldn't keep him so the network sprung into action and GRAB agreed to
take him in.

We estimate Remy to be about 8-10 years old and a Pomeranian/Terrier
cross. He looks mostly like a Pomeranian, but sounds and acts more like
a terrier! Remy has had a rough start in life including poor nutrition
from a young age. His fur was dry, brittle and rubbed off in some
places. He suffers from alopecia in places which means his fur is patchy
and not perfect. Remy needs an owner who will love him just the way he
is! He is about 12 lbs now, but could stand to gain a few more.

Remy came to us with tapeworm and very poor dental health. He had
surgery to remove three bad teeth and clean the rest. A de-wormer took
care of the tapeworm.

Remy has a medium energy level. He enjoys a walk or two each day and is
happy to take long naps when left on his own. He is excellent on a leash
and can handle a brisk pace, but enjoys a more mellow pace. Remy could
live with another dog, but introductions would have to be handled
carefully as he can be uncomfortable around new dogs. Remy is not
playful with other dogs and would be happiest with another dog who
prefers the attention of humans, or as the only dog. Remy loves fetch
and his spiky green ball!

He is okay in the car, but does get a little anxious. He's learning that
car rides mean fun walks and is liking them more and more.

Remy gets along great with cats and has no interest in chasing them.

Remy is great with people and loves a pat and a cuddle. On his walks he
tries to say hello to everyone and loves stopping to let kids pat him.

Remy is incredibly sweet and loves a cuddle. He especially likes his
face rubbed and will get so into it he rolls around rubbing his face on
your hands and lap much like a cat! He's not able to jump on the
furniture, but if given a boost he'll curl up for a snuggle. Remy has
some anxiety, but wears an ADAPTIL collar 24/7 which makes a huge
difference. It's recommended that his new home continue with the collar
which is about $20/mnth.

At dinner time he'll give you a gruff little woof and a playbow to
remind you of the time! He has an excellent time-sense and likes a
regular routine. Remy did not come to us housebroken, but after a
difficult few months is 100% housetrained. He does need more frequent
potty-breaks than average and can not be left home alone for lengthy
periods. He would prefer a home where someone would let him out for a
break every 5 hours or so. He is very unhappy in a crate (possibly due
to being over-crated in the past), but is happily locked in the kitchen
at night with his bed.

Remy is an attentive, lovely little dude. He responds very quickly to
verbal correction and has already learned not to eat the cat food and
not to go upstairs. Things like “sit” and “come” are taking a bit more
effort, but he is getting there with lots of practice. He's gaining
confidence every day and it's amazing to see this little dog's big
personality start to shine through!

Remy is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed Animal Rescue. The adoption donation is $375. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested.

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
