Owner: Marina Rumore

Location: San Francisco, Calif.

Dog Name: Remy

Age: 6 months

Breed: Alaskan Klee Kai. Known to be great companions and they love to "talk back." He always gets confused with a Husky puppy but they are actually mini Huskies; he’s 22 pounds.

In a Word: Talkative

Job Title: Alarm clock. He loves to wake us up with play time and jumps on top of the bed with his favorite toy.

Star Quality: His sweet temperament. As soon as we walk out the door, he’s looking for the closest human or dog to say hi to.

Favorite Posession: A toy Champagne bottle that he got for New Year's. He started ripping it apart after five minutes and falls asleep with it in his mouth.

Favorite Activity: Going to the dog park in Golden Gate Park and meeting the other dogs! He hasn’t met a dog or person that he doesn’t love.

Favorite Getaway: Going to the beaches in San Francisco and running away from the waves! He also loves visiting family outside of the city and running through their grapevines in the backyard.

Forgivable Flaw: He loves to steal our socks and leave them all over the apartment. When it’s laundry day, he thinks we’re gathering all his toys for him.
