Our Rembrandt is not related to the painter of the Dutch Golden Age, but he’s definitely a masterpiece. Resplendent in flawless caramel tones and rich detail, he exhibits strong chi and terrier influences. Also: He’s cute as a button and indiscriminately affectionate. He’s going to sit in the lap of the next person he sees, make them feel like a pop star, and revel in the scritches that follow. And then he’s going to do it again. He likes dogs too. He may also paint self-portraits using chiaroscuro to astonishing effect. We’re not sure. Adopt him and find out!

Here’s some notes from his foster:

Just a few days in and REM (who we call Ray) has found his favorite place: snuggled next to me. He has other favorites too: meandering investigative walks, meals, sunbathing and snoozing. He loves Greenies and encourages petting by tapping me with his paw.

For a guy with poor eyesight he manages well using his nose, ears and memory. He can do a few stairs once he has learned them but a whole flight is daunting. He is pretty good on leash but he likes to stop and sniff a lot.

Ray likes people around and if he loses track of me he’ll utter a single exploratory bark. If I’m gone too long he knows some sad songs to sing.

Update: Almost two weeks in, REM’s personality remains consistent. He likes snuggles, snoozing, sunbathing, meals, and leisurely sniffing tours of the neighborhood. He takes life easy and savors every bit!

He doesn’t mind being left alone. He’ll check around a bit, but no longer sings sad songs.

He met a friend’s rambunctious labradoodle at our house last week. They immediately recognized that they had nothing in common and peacefully ignored each other all evening. I think he’ll do well with other dogs in the house.
