Remi is an 8 year old stunning liver and roan German Shorthaired Pointer.
Remi was a frequent visitor to the shelter having escaped his yard on several occasions and then being picked up by animal control. On one of those occasions, California GSP Rescue was alerted of a found dog and helped reunite him with his owner making suggestions to the owner on how to better secure the yard. When Remi showed up at the shelter his last visit, we didn’t make the connection that he was the same found dog from several months prior but were told by the shelter that the owner was known and had been contacted. Remi sat for over a week at the shelter waiting while we monitored him to see if his owner would claim him. It isn’t that uncommon for found dogs to sit in the shelter that long while the owners are notified. It’s required that shelters hold stray dogs five business days. Ten business days if the dog has a microchip – well worth the cost of the chip.
While it’s disheartening Remi sat in the shelter and wasn’t claimed by his owner, his life changed forever when he was rescued by California GSP Rescue.
Remi is as sweet as they come. He loves people and gets along great with other dogs. He may be 8, but he still has plenty of energy, and will need to be in a home that will give plenty of daily exercise.
We are looking for a forever home for Remi that can provide the love as well as a secure yard he so much needs. His adopter will need to be able to give him the exercise that an adult GSP requires as well as continued training. Anyone with a well trained dog will tell you that training doesn’t end after the 6 or 8 week obedience class but is an ongoing learning process for the owner and dog. Above all, California GSP Rescue is committed to assisting Remi’s adopter with any issues they might encounter, for the rest of Remi’s life.
