Remi is a 9 month old Rottweiler Mix who arrived in the care of SDR after her new previous had only had her a couple of weeks. Sadly she did not get along with the cats in home and would chase them. There was also issue with another dog in the home around food. She has settled in well here and is now ready to find her new home.
Meeting people – Remi can initially be a little shy when meeting new people, but it doesn’t take her long to come round. Once she’s met you she can jump up at you for fuss and attention. She isn’t over the top or rough when doing so and this can easily be rectified through some training. Remi was brilliant when she had her vet check and loved all the attention.
Toys & Play – She enjoys playing with soft, squeaky toys. Anything that moves fast will catch her attention. She does display signs of having a chase drive, so using a flirt pole would help provide genetic fulfilment for this. Owners can also layer in some obedience/impulse control but only once she is into the game; such as stops, drops and release.
Food & Treats – Remi has a great appetite and is currently on three meals a day. She is good when taking treats, however caution will be needed if offering her titbits around other dogs as she has had issue with food around other dogs previously.
Walking – Generally Remi walks well on the lead with the lead clipped to the front of a Y shaped harness. However if something catches her eye and she wants to pull she is very strong. Owners would do well to reinforce loose lead walking with her – she’s a bright dog and will pick up training quickly.
Travel – She travelled well in the back of the van to the vets, however she will need to be restrained (harness/crate or dog guard) when travelling with new owners as she will try move around. Happy to get in and out of the van.
Dogs – When mixed with a variety of dogs here, Remi has shown to be good with them. She is still young and can be a little bouncy for some of the calmer dogs and can run into them when off lead, so we would recommend play friends of a similar size. We wouldn’t place Remi in a home with other dogs due to issues around food.
Living with children – Remi hasn’t had interaction with young children and due to her size, we recommend that if she was to live with children, they will need to be 14 years and over and used to large dogs as she does forget her size at times.
Garden & Fencing – A young active dog like Remi will benefit from having a good sized garden to romp around in. The garden will need to be secure with 6ft fencing.
Overall Remi is a sweet young girl with a lot of personality and with further training has the potential to be a really amazing dog. She will benefit from a home that can provide her with lots of physical activity once fully grown but also give her the mental stimulation she requires.
The adoption fee for Remi is £275
