Meet Remy, a sweet, energetic, 8-year-old German short-haired pointer with lovely markings. Her head is liver and her body is liver-ticked. She has a noble muzzle and long, floppy ears. She was brought to the shelter because the cat in her new adoptive home was afraid of her. (Remy confided that all she did was poke her nose under the bed where the cat was hiding. Make that “point” her nose.)
In her early days at the shelter, she was enrolled in our Head Start program to deal with her stress. But recently, when she did a stint as a lobby dog, she behaved in the most friendly and outgoing manner with children, adults and other dogs.
Intelligent and attentive, she responds to “Sit,” “Shake,” and “High Five” commands. Our dog walking volunteers report that she is patient and easy to leash. Riveted by squirrels (did we mention she’s a pointer?), she nonetheless knows not to lunge for them.
The best situation for her would be a home with a yard and a sensitive, active owner (perhaps a running partner?) Although she was formerly mostly an outdoor dog, Remy is housebroken and used to sleep on her former owner’s bed.
To meet this lively German short-haired pointer in person, stop by our Quebec Street Shelter or call (303) 751-5772.
Because Remy is a member of our Muttley Crew, you’ll receive waived adoption fees.
