Remi was once a loving brother to our other dogs. We aren't sure what changed in his demeanor suddenly about five years ago. Since then we have recently moved into a living situation that doesn't easily allow us to keep him separate from our other dogs or our one year old or give him the exercise he deserves. He's never growled or acted aggressive towards our child, but we've also been very precautious just in case. He tends to be more open to women and will attack any dog he is within close reach of if not properly restrained or separated. We believe it to be more of a territorial aggression, but if he's uncomfortable he will also become aggressive. With lots of positive reinforcement he warms up quickly to nearly anyone. We have tried to search for trainers that will help us with Remi's aggression, but to no avail. We are terrified we will be forced to put him down if he attacks another dog that isn't ours. We love him dearly and truly want him to live the remainder of his life as he deserves. He knows the basic commands: sit, come, no, up, down, paw and bed/kennel. He's a terrible retriever. Lol. He likes to make you fetch the ball, toy or stick the first couple times before deciding to play with you. And sometimes he'll decide to just lay down and chew the stick instead of play. He likes toys only if you play with them with him. He hates the water and refuses to swim‰'Û| but will reluctantly take a bath without too much fuss. He enjoys being outside and prefers his food and water to be with him because he is very territorial of his food if other dogs can get to it. He also tends to be quite destructive if bored and left unattended. If we were to leave home he was usually outside or kenneled. And brought inside at night to be kenneled as well. Unless the rare occasion when he wanted to be left outside for some bizarre reason. However, he was not a fan of a dog run in our yard. He enjoys chasing birds that fly into the yard and barking at birds and squirrels in the trees. He is very vocal and let's you know of any delivery trucks or neighbors coming and going from their home. But will settle down if you tell him 'Thank you' and comfort him some. Lol. We believe Remi will be most happy in a home with no other animals. If you have any questions that I haven't covered please contact me. We have unfortunately had to keep him locked up most of the day and night for quite some time now looking for trainers, shelters and different living arrangements. We hate seeing him have to live like this‰'Û| and just want him to be happy.
