Remmy is the best dog ever. So says his fosters. Who are we to disagree?
Remmy is 7 years old. His family rescued him from a puppy mill and life was good. But, he became homeless and lost his best friend and family when his family encountered death and loss. He was very sad, lost and confused. Despite all that loss and grief, Remmy’s true spirit shined. He is gentle, affectionate, loving and, maybe, a little bit goofy.
So many people came together to help Remmy. April Cross took care of Remmy while Remmy’s owner suffered the loss of his wife, leg and home. The Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital in Crawfordville took care of Remmy’s medical needs to help Remmy find a home. Gillian and Gabe of Tallahassee fostered Remmy for a weekend until ECGRR could take him in. Timberlane Animal Hospital in Tallahassee provided care for anxiety and allergies. And Emerald Coast Golden Retriever accepted Remmy so that the best home can be found for him. After about six weeks of foster care we now know this about Remmy’s perfect home.
Remmy needs a home with no stairs. He can handle one or two steps but no more.
It would be ideal if Remmy’s new humans are low key and home bodies. Due to his massive loss Remmy was anxious and the foster used love, thunder shirts and medication to help Remmy adjust. Remmy’s foster reports Remmy is much happier now. It will take time and his new family will have to help Remmy adjust and love him. In the beginning he would bark when the foster left the house but that to has subsided. He loves his routine – probably because of his limited vision and loss.
He needs another dog to love and hang with. Remmy lost his canine friend Jeremiah and howled every morning at 4am so Jeremiah could find him. By the way Remmy has a lovely singing voice. The foster’s dogs would run out to comfort Remmy and Remmy would stop. Remmy’s grief is subsiding, and the foster reports Remmy is no longer calling for Jeremiah.
