Meet Remi! Remi is an adorable 9 months old Jindo mix. She was born in a city shelter along with her siblings, Nami, Bomi, and Chomi. These sweet puppies were luckily rescued before their time ran out.
Remi may be shy and hesitant at first, but she’s a very sweet, brave, and playful pup. She loves flopping down on her side/back to get lots of belly rubs. She especially loves cuddling and giving eskimo kisses in the morning. She loves playing chasing with her foster and their dog and loves playing around the backyard. She’ll benefit from having a dog sibling who can lead her, but she’ll also do well as the only dog.
Remi is house trained and knows to ring a bell to be let out into the backyard. She’s very food motivated, so she is easily trainable with repetition, patience, and time. The commands she knows are: sit, wait, paw, up, high five, down, cmon let’s go, and go to bed. She is also crate trained and goes in on her own. However, she currently doesn’t use the crate and sleeps on her foster’s bed in the bedroom.
Her foster telework 99% of the time and during her work hours, Remi busies herself by playing with dog toys, my dog, and/or napping within her vicinity. She loves chew toys especially those with crinkle sound(she’s not so fond of squeaky toys yet).
She is still learning not to pull on the leash during our walks. Remi has a very high prey drive and will dart/pull as soon as she sees a bird or any kind of critter/animal. Also, oddly enough, she rarely poops during our walk no matter how long it is. She prefers to do her business in the backyard after our walks. So a home with a backyard is preferable.
Remi does well on car rides most the time. However, there are times she would whine and move around probably due to stress and anxiety. Her foster is working on her separation anxiety. It is not ideal to crate her, as she could end up hurting herself from trying to forcibly escape. The longest her foster home left her with their dog, free to roam the house, was about 5 hours. Reducing her separation anxiety while left alone is still a work in progress, but can definitely be prevented with patience and training.
We are looking for a home who understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Remi is patiently waiting!
