Remington found himself in a kill shelter as a baby. He was adopted by a young family who loved him for about 10 months. Then, for reasons beyond Remi’s control, his family broke apart and his owner returned him (or tried) to the shelter. Luckily for Remi, now 10 mos. old, Lisa, foster/volunteer with Paws NE was on site picking up another dog. She saw the impatience and subsequent concerning hysteria of the young man when he was told he had to get an appointment to return the dog and quickly offered to take him as she was concerned about Remi’s well being.
He loves other playful pups. He knows basic commands. Walks well on lead. As long as he is crated with another dog, Remi is calm. But if crated alone for extended periods, he can get anxious so this boy MUST have a canine playmate.
Remi loves kids, loves toys, plays well with other playful dogs. His ideal home will have a safe fenced yard, an excellent history of vet care for current or previous pets, and another friendly dog.
Kids with great dog manners are a plus.
Remi is medium active and will enjoy a family who is active.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION -
Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.
Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
