Dog needs owner to overlook his under bite

Remy, a dog at Chicago's Anti-Cruelty Society, is so homely looking that no one wants to take him home.

The 2-year-old mutt is a Rottweiler mix. And he just can't seem to get a break; he's been at the Anti-Cruelty Society, since November, up for adoption for five months. But no one seems to want him. Why?

"Well, we're not sure. We're working with his training. He used to bark quite a bit in the cage ... and he's not the most handsome looking fellow," said Dr. Robyn Barbiers, president, Anti-Cruelty Society.

But the homely looking mutt is very smart, according to Dr. Barbiers. So Remy needs an owner who can overlook his under bite.

"He's a great dog. He has a wonderful personality and the staff here has been doing a great job on training him. How to sit, shake, lie down and sometimes roll over," Dr. Barbiers said.

Poor Remy, the dog with the crooked face. He just doesn't seem to fit in this world of beautiful people.

"He's not the cutest dog. He's cute, he's cute in his own way. He's not beautiful. So we are looking for someone who just loves him for him," Emily Ledergerber, Anti-Cruelty Society.

Remy will stay at Anti-Cruelty until he's adopted out.

"As long as the animal is behaviorally and medically in good health, we'll keep them here until they get adopted," Dr. Barbiers said.

Remy would do well with a family with lots of space. Children are fine- but no toddlers. His adoption fee is $95.
