Meet Remus! He came to us from a shelter in TX as part of a neglect case. He was living locked up in a garage and not being cared for. The shelter saved them and then transferred to GPMR.
Remus is what we call a "fluffy" Mastiff. This is a recessive gene in Mastiffs that produces this longer coat and it's not something we see very often in rescue. He is so handsome!
Remus is great with dogs of all sizes and energy levels - for small dogs/puppies he will lay on the floor to play. He’s shown internet in the cats in his foster home but has not tried to chase them. He does great with rodents in cages but he does become a little too interested when they are not caged. He has yet to meet a person who isn’t automatically his new best friend - especially if treats are involved! He is a very goofy outgoing boy who would love to have another dog friend to play with!
Remus does occasionally spook at loud noises/fast movement but has improved greatly with this. We do recommend he is in a home with no kids or older children. He LOVES the 8yr old boy in his foster home and is so gentle and loving with him. We are working on basic training; he has not mastered heeling but does walk great on leash otherwise.
We noticed Remus have a bit of an odd walk/run so we had Xrays done and he was diagnosed with mild hip dysplasia in his right hip. The vet said it is not something that requires any surgery but he does need to stay on joint supplements or a joint diet and keeping him lean is important. He does not let this slow him down or bother him though! He loves to romp and play with other dogs and plays fetch as long as you don’t like having the ball back immediately!
Remus is heartworm negative and ready for adoption!
Remus is being fostered near St. Louis, MO.
