Facts about Remi

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)/Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)

  • ID#: 217674

Life of the party, Remi has a real Terrier attitude towards life: he would like to engage in whatever is fun. Got that? Fun! Toys, nice dogs (he prefers them his size or less), people, exploring, you name it, Remi is up for it.

What Remi is less up for is being handled in, shall we say, intimate ways. Veterinarians can relate. Be sure to give Remi's new vet a heads up. They'll know what to do. And because we civilians can often make handling errors of our own, we suggest Remi live in an adults only home. Even the most well meaning children can forget their manners when enthusiasm for a pet knows no bounds, and then wooops! We don't want Remi or anyone else taking the brunt of an honest mistake. The same holds true for Remi and his high value items, be they food or toys. He is willing to trade - in other words, you can work this out with him - but he needs to become consistent at it before youngsters or less dog savvy people approach him when these items are around. A free behavior consult at adoption time and even after will give you helpful tips on how to overcome this very common phenomenon.

Remi seems to prefer dogs his own size, so he could be happy as the second dog in your home. Please bring your dog in to meet him if you are considering expanding your canine family.

Remi is anxious to learn some basic doggy skills while enhancing his bond with his people. He is a mature dog but still young enough to secure a bright future. Bring him to Small Dog Classes and enlighten him with the interactive work. You might get a new lease on things too! Try him out in Scenting or check out Agility. So much to see and do!

Remi is a great dog for a savvy adult family who will exercise and train him. Don't rely on the dog park for his education and exercise. Think of it as: you wouldn't send your kid to a sports bar during hockey season to learn life skills. Remi is too great a prize to squander on hooligans (present hockey fans excepted). Ha! This adorable, fun loving guy is aching and ready to fill an empty spot in your life. Is your life a party? It might just be now. [Wink]
