His name is Remus and his breed is a miniature schnauzer crossbred with a boston terrier; the designer breed name is "miniboz". Miniboz average lifespan is between 14 and 16 years, so he's middle-aged right now. He would do best in a home with no other dogs, but with the proper time and training he would be able to be in a home with other pets. He would do best in a home with older children if any and would do best with an active family, or a family who is looking for a working dog.

ABOUT Remus: Remus is an excellent alert dog. He alerts to vehicles pulling up onto the property, people approaching the front door, and anyone who comes into the backyard. He also loves to play, he's a dog that can go jogging, and he loves all people so long as they are welcomed into the home by his owners. He is completely house-trained, does not have destructive tendencies, is also crate-trained and does fine in a crate for up to 6 hours at a time, and is very toy-motivated. He knows basic commands like "sit" and "down" and "wait" and "release" but struggles with "stay". He is very, very loving. He does have some minor anxiety issues, but these can be managed easily with routine exercise and, if needed, medication. He would come to his new home with all of his vet paperwork, dog tags, some toys, some treats, his crate, dog beds, and a starter package of food and anxiety medication.

Why are we looking to rehome our good boy Remus?
We have a 1 year-old son and are expecting our second baby in April. We no longer need an alert dog, and Remus has also snapped at our son twice, which is why we recommend he is in a home with older children as he does much better around older kids (he is used to kids ages 7 and up and LOVES to play with them--especially fetch).
