Hi!!! My name is Remi,

I've been with my foster parents for 3 days now and I am settling in nicely. My foster parents have been spending a lot of time with me, trying to get to know me. What they have discovered so far is:

 I am house trained and when I need to go out to do my business, I will let them know. 
 
 I am crate trained and go into it easily when I'm told to kennel up. I sleep well in it all night. 

I get along well with my foster GSP sisters and have already taken naps with them on our dog bed. I would love to take a nap on the couch but my foster mom won't allow it in case  my new forever home would prefer that I do jump on the furniture. 

They found out that I do like to play and will fetch a ball and love the game hide and seek.

I have great recall skills and have returned 100% of the time by calling my name but respond even better when they whistle. They believe that I am whistle trained and plan to work with me using a whistle.

I am a little chunky so my foster parents are focusing on getting me plenty of exercise which I love. They found out that I am  great on a lease but I also am used to being on a check rope. I love it when they let me explore and sniff my surroundings and I will come back to them immediately when they call me. I pay very close attention to them on my walks because they will hide on me and I need to find them before we can continue on our walk. 

At first I was very aggressive towards the outdoor cats that seem to always be on the deck but my foster parents are working with me so I know that the cats are part of the family. I am getting used to seeing them thru the patio door but if I get a chance I will chase them. My foster parent are happy that they  can call me off the chase and I will return to their side. 

I eat well along side my foster sisters but will snitch their food if I get a chance. I don't even mind if my foster mom touches me or my food while I am eating. 

I'm good at the sit command but I need to work on stay. I break the stay position only rush to their side and not to run away.

That's it for now. Watch for further update. I am looking forward to finding my forever home.
