My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Remington - Greater Swiss/Hound Mix - Male - 6 years -

If you'd like to know more about this dog please visit our website at

Remington is an energetic 6-year-old Doberman/Greater Swiss Mountain dog mix (we think) who likes to play with toys and other dogs.  Remington is active and energetic, loves to play ball, is house and crate trained and walks well on leash. He is very smart, learns quickly and wants to please.

Remington is looking for a dog-experienced home that can give him the guidance, training and exercise he needs and craves. He previously has had a bad experience with a trainer and an electric collar and takes some time to trust new people, he now doesn't like his collar grabbed. He likes playing with other dogs, but has to be reminded not to guard his resources, like toys and food. He loves his people but can be rude meeting new people. He walks well on leash and runs nicely next to a bike for exercise. He likes to follow his person throughout the house to make sure he's not missing anything, especially in the kitchen - he loves Ice cubes!

As he's a large and somewhat pushy character, he's looking for an large-breed experienced home, with or without a similar sized balanced dog. He takes direction well and is fully crate and house trained.
