Do you like your dogs on the larger side? A big teddy bear? Rimie’s your guy. Rimie is so very sweet and loves laying down for belly rubs. He wants to be friends with everyone and has a mellow personality. His little docked tail never stops wagging. He seems to do well with both male and female dogs.

He backed away from cats when he was walked by their cages. Rimie made the trip from an overcrowded shelter in Louisiana at the beginning of May and he is loving being a Mainer. He’s 1-1/2 years old and about 70 pounds. Will you be the lucky person to have Rimie in your life? Fill out the application on our website (www.responsiblepetcare.org) if you’d like to meet Rimie.
