Remi (Remington) is a 2-year-old small standard Aussie who weighs 38 pounds. Remi is a medium energy dog until it is time to play, then her high energy side comes out! She loves to play energetically with dogs her size or larger. She will often try to take it up a notch with dog friends to get an episode of chase started. Then you get to see how fast she can be! She has a good read on the energy dogs project and will avoid dogs being aggressive or not playful. Remi is a typical young Aussie who needs daily mental stimulation and physical activity to stay happy and out of trouble.
She is extremely sweet and mild mannered around the house. She loves to be with her people, whether in their lap or next to them on the sofa. She has Velcro tendencies, but sometimes just likes to know where you are when at home. While she is very affectionate with her family, she has been working on building her confidence in public and will benefit from continued socialization and positive experiences. She will generally go up and say hello to strangers, but treats help her warm faster!
Remi is house broken and kennel trained. The most you will hear from her in the kennel is an occasional whimper. She is quiet through the night and is fine sleeping in her kennel unless welcomed up onto your bed to lay beside you. She does not do well with cats or other small animals. She is fine around children but can be mouthy in her play, so would be better with older children that could really play with her. She likes playing fetch with a ball, rope tug of war, and of course lots of chew toys! She walks well on a leash unless a squirrel or cat comes along. She knows several commands and is currently working on stay, down and come. She is good being bathed and the groomer had no trouble trimming her nails. She rides well in the car (though needs continued practice to “load up” confidently) and only shows mild anxiety to storms. She winds down by 8 or 9 in the evening and just likes to be nearby her person.
Remi is up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, Heartworm negative, and current on Heartworm and flea prevention. She is being fostered in the DFW area and is available for adoption in Texas and some areas of Oklahoma only. If chosen for adoption, you must be able to travel to DFW within 7 days of application approval.
