Available Dog - Rembrandt


I am looking for my forever home and I think yours might be perfect for me!

My name is Rembrandt and I think I will fit right in.  I have very good house manners.  I can eat right next to other dogs without bothering their food or really caring if they steal my food.

I walk politely on a leash when it’s attached to a harness, otherwise I might give you a little tug as we walk.  I  won’t bother you when you’re eating, even if it’s right in front of me, but I will sit for a treat if you offer it.

I will play with my toys, but leave yours alone.  I love to lay outside on the deck and to be walked. I will sit patiently to be combed and bathed. I am in touch with my hunting ancestors so I love to chase squirrels, birds and even cats if they are in my line of sight.

I am friendly to your children, grammas and visitors, although my mighty bark will alert you when needed.  Don’t worry, I only bark when I think you need to be alerted.  I am pretty relaxed and spend a lot of my day laying around, storing up energy so I am ready to walk or run when you are. My foster parents ride bikes with me running right along. I don’t pull and I keep up, even on the hills.

I don’t mind other dogs, and can walk right past them in the neighborhood without much interest. I live with a young pup who wants to play, jumping around me, bowing and running, I am not very interested but I will humor her and play sometimes. 

Although I can be trusted to be left out all day or night, I don’t mind the crate. In fact, at my foster’s house, I spend the nights in the crate. I will go in without a bribe, but I have fooled them into thinking they need to throw a treat in there for me.

If I sound like the perfect guy to you, I would love to meet you and make your home my forever one.
