Red Stick German Shepherd Rescue
Adopted: 3/14/18
Name: Remi
ID: #201802

Sex: F
Age: 4 months

Remi is a gorgeous German Shepherd puppy. We estimate she's 15-16 weeks old. From her bone structure, it looks like she is going to be BIG for a female -- over 75 pounds would be our guess. She has a gorgeous gait for a puppy.

Remi has excellent confidence for her age -- she's fearless when she encounters loud noises, new situations, or just about anything at all. She's been terrific with all the people she's met. She likes other dogs, but we think it's likely she will grow up to be a bossy, dominant female with other dogs. It's important for her to continue to get good leadership and continue her obedience training so that she can grow up to reach her full potential.

Her foster family has started her potty training and leash training. She's doing beautifully, but because of her age, it's a work in progress, so her adopter will have to continue the training. She's already crate trained.

She loves toys, playing fetch, and chewing...anything. She's playful, affectionate, and full of spunk.

Before you applying to adopt a puppy, please consider: normal GSD puppies are all little stinkers. It's just how they roll. They put sharp, little teeth on everything (and humans are favorite chew toys, because they squeak the loudest). They tear stuff up because it's fun (the more expensive the stuff, the better it tastes). They can't hold their little bladders, so you might have to get up in the middle of the night and may not have a good night's sleep for months. They might not mellow out for at least a couple of years.

We thus generally don't place young, mouthy puppies to be "starter dogs," or in homes with young kids. If you already know how bonkers GSD puppies are, and you're up for having your shoes destroyed, your hands and toes chewed on, and holes put in your pants, and you have the patience, know-how, and time to raise, socialize, and train this breed (and have great references), you're our kind of puppy adopter!

We can't guarantee she's purebred, but she looks like it to us. However, what you see is what you get with puppies--there are no pedigrees or promises about what they'll look like when they grow up. She was left in a city animal shelter as a baby by an owner who didn't want to keep her, so we don't know anything about her prior life before she came into rescue. We've promised her she'll never be left behind again.
