Another volunteer writes: There is simply no way to resist this sweet wrinkly face, and I didn’t! So quiet in her kennel, easily leashed and out we go. Likely housetrained Remy went potty the moment we were out the door, has lovely leash manners, and off leash came on my lap for snuggle time. She played a little game of weaving through my legs when I first sat down and it was so cute watching her gently amusing herself. I would have loved to sit and cuddle with her all day but had to put her back in her kennel into which she hopped easily and lay down. I’m in love with this gentle sweetheart who needs some TLC to make her super model gorgeous. Sweet, gentle, kind and easy…..my kind of gal.
