Meet the ModDog: Remy

Name: Remy
Age: 4
Breed: Border Terrier

If you typically reserve the term “foodie” for anyone who walks on two legs, think again! Pittsburgh ModDog Remy is known for being a health-conscious food connoisseur. His latest palette pleaser? Raw tuna! “Recently, while making ceviche at home, I discovered that he loves raw tuna,” said Image Specialist Erin. “He seems to be developing an expensive habit!”

Luckily for Erin, Remy also enjoys more run-of-the-mill snacks, like carrots or bison-flavored biscuits. We just hope he’s sharing those snacks with his younger sister, Gemma, a one-year-old Border Terrier who’s just as sweet as her older bro!

    No way!! I live in Pittsburgh and have a Border Terrier, Baron, and I’ve never seen another one here! Remy is the cutest. I wonder if they’re from the same breeder? Mine is from Ohio.

      Really? That’s amazing! I have only seen one other BT in Pittsburgh, in Shadyside, and her name was Sparky. The breeder I got Remy and Gemma from is named Sue Baxter.

      Hmm, not the same breeder. I live in Highland Park and I think there’s one in the Southside too from my breeder (at least that’s what they told me). Yay for BTs in the Burgh! I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled now :)

    Very cute…my brother’s dog won’t eat dog feed anymore. Just people food including canned tuna, and apples. Will basically beg for sweet potato skins.

    He’s adorable!! When I first started looking for a dog, I was seriously considering getting a Border Terrier – they’re supposed to be great dogs!

    I miss seeing Remy! He’s a good boy, so I’m sure he’s sharing his treats with Gemma…if she’s not already stealing them from him, that is! ; )

    I miss Remy and Gemma so much! This article doesn’t mention anything about all the cool tricks he can do! He’s both handsome and smart!

    I am sending e-kisses to Remy right now.

    I like Remy’s argyle sweater!! Will ModCloth ever venture into clothes or accessories for dogs? With all your lovely ModDogs, surely you’d have some good looking models. And I am pretty damn tired of all the ugly dog clothes I see… my puggle needs something a little more hip! Help, please?
