|Rescue Me ID: 14-02-12-00550Artemis (female)|
'Moosey' is a wonderful family pet who simply needs a new family that will be able to give her the attention she deserves. She is seven years old and was the runt of her litter. She displays typical 'runty' behavior - she can be nervous, is tentative with larger dogs and can display food aggression when another animal tries to take food away from her. She is a very sweet, friendly girl who likes just about any dog or human she meets. She does well with children and cats. She does not mind general grooming; bathing, ear cleaning and tooth brushing are all well tolerated; nail trimming takes some coaxing. She walks reasonably well on a leash with a harness but tends to pull. She took very well to boundary training with the outdoor wireless fence system. She knows the basic commands sit, stay/wait, lie down, leave it, off, up, back up and ok as a release word. She is crate trained. Artemis has some small behavioral issues. She nuisance barks when she is unsupervised outdoors. She occasionally counter surfs. She will happily get into trash bins and she is coprophagiac. Intermittently she grows benign cysts on her head and torso that disappear without treatment. She is otherwise healthy although she is in need of a dental cleaning. She is only current with her rabies vaccination at this time. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-02-12-00498Remy (male)|
Remy is a very sweet boy who desperately needs a job and more human interaction than he is currently receiving. He has been kept by at least three different families and has multiple behavior problems that will need to be addressed by someone who is an experienced GSP owner. He would likely do well as a sled dog or in agility. The positive: He is friendly and generally not aggressive with other dogs, cats or humans. Remy loves to run with other dogs, to play ball and tug and playfully wrestle. He is most comfortable with dogs about his size or smaller than himself and he typically displays submissive behavior in play. However, Remy will vocalize and snap at a dog that persists in attempting to mount him. He has also shown fearful behavior when in close quarters with dogs significantly larger than himself, such as Great Danes. Remy is not food aggressive. He is a very sweet, friendly boy who likes just about any dog or human he meets. He does well with children but would probably be better suited to a home with older children and a quieter environment. He does not mind general grooming; bathing, ear cleaning, nail trimming and tooth brushing are all well tolerated. He walks reasonably well on a leash with a harness. He took very well to boundary training with the outdoor wireless fence system. He knows the basic commands sit, stay/wait, lie down, leave it, off, up, back up and ok as a release word. He rides well in a car. The negative: Remy is food motivated to a fault. He is a countertop surfer. He gets into the trash if it is not secured behind a childproof enclosure. He will chew through containers and cupboards to gain access to food or trash. Outdoor trash bins must be tied down or otherwise contained. He does not care if you are standing right next to him and he will persist after correction if the food is not secured. He also tends to consume leather items, such as holsters, straps and footwear. Remy eats poo - his and any other he can find. Remy has intermittent severe anxiety problems. He has generally used a crate for containment. However, he has not been using a crate since May of 2013 due to the distress it was causing him and the damage he was doing to our property. When he is anxious in his crate, he will destroy any comfort items inside such as a bed or blanket and he will pull inside, scratch apart or chew anything that is within his reach - up to eight inches away. He will howl and whine and cry, chewing at the bars of the crate, shaking and shoving on the panels and vibrating bodily. Remy is afraid of thunder and fireworks but he does not mind gun fire. Pheromone diffusers have been used with inconsistent results. Remy digs around trees and exposes their roots in the yard. Occasionally, Remy marks indoors, typically in new environments. Health: He has a strangulated penis. There is a callus on his chest that has been biopsied and is not a mast cell tumor. In the fall of 2011 he developed gingival masses that were removed, biopsied and determined to be of no concern. He had his teeth cleaned during that procedure. He is only current on his rabies vaccination at this time but that is negotiable. (Less)
