This is REMMY

                                      

From her owners: “Remmy is a gorgeous female German Shepherd who loves to play and has a heart of gold. We’ve taken her on many trips and every time she enjoys everything about being with us and a new adventure.  Remmy is extremely friendly with new people and loves children often giving them puppy kisses while her tail wags.

It breaks our hearts we have to consider this however our work schedule confines us to 2 feedings a day and 3 on the weekends when we can. She could really benefit from 3-4 feedings a day. 2018 also brings an adjusted work schedule for us both with generally longer hours and increased travel in the March to November time frame for Megan.”

Exercise preferred (if any) and level (high, moderate, low):

  • Loves to play, but trying to keep her from exerting too much so she puts on weight
  • Walking around the yard and neighborhood are her favorite along with chasing sticks

and golf balls thrown on our property

  • Can handle exercise of varying forms from low to extreme but as stated above we try to

routinely keep her in the low to moderate range

                           

Miscellaneous:

  • Great with children and dogs
  • Curious with cats but is not ill tempered toward them, just curious and inquisitive (was

with my family’s cats over Christmas for a week with nothing but tail wags…toward the end she and the one Tabby, Belle, became a modern day Milo and Otis)

  • Leash trained and working on off leash currently
  • Working on overcoming new people being around her
  • Housebroken – uses bells on the door to alert you to when she needs to potty
  • Crate trained – does not have an issue being in there at night or during the day for work;

we generally leave a TV or radio on and she falls asleep once inside

  • Does not need to use a pro collar – have seen good results from her sleeping in her crate

with the bed we purchased; it has bolstered sides which she lays her head on at night keeping it elevated; has worn a collar before and wasn’t upset with it, but not sure what it was; with time if needed I believe she would see this as normal

Additional notes​ ​(any other pertinent information that will help you decide if you might be safe, loving his forever home):

“Remmy loves to play and has a heart of gold. We’ve taken her on many trips and every time she takes it all in.  She loves to play fetch with sticks and golf balls (I started chipping golf balls for her to fetch when she was a pup). She is extremely friendly with new people and loves children often giving them puppy kisses while her tail wags. She knows sit, stay, laydown, paw, come, nose, up, down, head up, drop it, seek, no!,

It breaks our hearts we have to consider this however we unfortunately cannot continually watch struggle to put on weight. Our work schedule confines us to 2 feedings a day and 3 on the weekends when we can. She could really benefit from 3-4 feedings a day. 2018 also brings an adjusted work schedule for us both with generally longer hours and increased travel in the March to November time frame for Megan.”
