Remy is a sweet and affectionate dog who is very devoted to his people, learns quickly, and wants to please. He would love to be a lap dog, if you’d let him, and likes to snuggle by your feet or lay his head on your lap when its family couch time. Remy is currently being fostered with 3 other dogs and 2 cats, and does well with them all. He loves to run and play with his foster siblings, and is always up for a game of fetch or Frisbee, or playing chase in the backyard with the other dogs. He is really good with cats too, he just sniffs them and will go about his business not bothering them.
Remy is about 3 years old and weighs 70 lbs, and is some mix of Hound and Doberman. He’s an active dog who loves to go for walks, and will sniff the country air to locate squirrels. He is curious about deer, but has come to accept them as part of the scenery in his neighborhood. Remy walks well on leash with his pack, but can be reactive on leash when it comes to dogs he doesn’t know. His foster parents are working with him on his training to address the issue, and his new owner will need to continue that training to learn how to manage his behavior. He can work through the leash issues, but a quiet neighborhood with less foot traffic is probably the best fit for him right now.
He’s only been in his foster home a few weeks and is doing great with his training. He already knows many basic commands, like sit, stay, and lay down, and is doing well and enjoying the company of the other dogs in the home. He has a couple favorite toys he loves to carry around with him in the house, and is a big fan of stuffed animals and rope toys.
Remy is an awesome dog with good house manners, and would be find with kids, dogs, and cats in the home. He needs some work on his leash walking skills, and will do well with an experienced owner who is used to managing a strong, active dog. A home with a fenced yard and other dogs to romp with would be ideal.

About Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs Deserve Better, 2003 First Place Winner of the ASPCA/Chase Pet Protector Award, is a voice for chained and penned dogs, whose sadness speaks only through the eyes. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without affection, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.

Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but is dangerous to the community. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and anyone who wanders into this space can be attacked.

Would you for one second choose to live the life of these dogs? No matter what reason is given, the bottom line is that it is NOT ok to chain a dog for life. Dogs should not have to live chained or penned as prisoners, yearning for a place in a family, craving acknowledgement, respect, and love. They DESERVE BETTER, and we as caretakers have the obligation to provide it for them.
