Remi aka Remington

 

Remi was a 3 year old purebred Vizsla who was surrendered to a shelter in Prescott, AZ by his owner’s agent. We were told that the owners were in Paris at the time. It was also said by the person who surrendered him, that he had bitten someone. We were contacted by an AZ Vizsla rescue volunteer and asked if we could help out by taking the dog.

I agreed to take Remi, due to my experience with dogs that have a history of one bite and could have an explanation as to the incident. We got Remi to my home and everything was just fine. He got along with my dogs and cats, no problem. This dog was drop dead gorgeous.

I was constantly monitoring him to see if I could notice any undesirable behavior. I did notice that he was extremely prey driven, but didn’t bother my cats. There was just something I couldn’t put my finger on. Then by September there were 2 more bite/aggression behaviors. It was so sad, but we had to believe he was not adoptable and had to be helped across the Rainbow Bridge. This was very difficult for me having to help him cross over the Bridge. But I know he is free of his demons and will be waiting for me at the Bridge when it is my time.

Remi was a casualty of extremely poor breeding. His temperament was unpredictable, he had bitten someone prior to coming into 2nd Chance.
