Pets of the week: Remy and Nami

Remy is still growing into his ears, but at least he has the superpower of hearing a bag of treats being opened a mile away. Born in 2020, this gorgeous boy is still in the lanky teenager stage with legs that reach your waist. Remy was transferred to MCHS from Fluffy Butts Rescue in Kelseyville a couple of weeks ago and has quickly fit right in here. He is great with other dogs and loves spending time with his new friends in the play yards- he and Poseidon have become BFFs. His mom was a Belgian malinois and his dad a Belgian shepherd, so naturally, he is a very intelligent dog who is food motivated and quick to learn new skills. Remy enjoys being busy and would do well in a home with an active lifestyle. He hasn’t had a ton of social interaction in his previous life, so he can be a bit nervous in new situations and around new people, especially men. However, with some love and patience (and treats), he warms up quickly to new people. Remy’s dream home is with experienced shepherd owners who can take him on adventures and give him the confidence to thrive.

Even though I’m not eligible to vote for City Council, it means a great deal to me when excellent leaders run for this office. According to, 14,799 people live within the 95437-zip code, 6,983 within the city limits, and 7,816 outside. I live outside the city limits but own a business and commercial property in Fort Bragg proper.
