Dog Story: Hi Rennie here, short for Renegade. Rennie is gentle and a good companion. He is responsive to his foster mom, but a bit shy with other people. At the dog park, all his inhibitions disappear, and he plays joyously with all the other dogs, big and small. When off leash in open fields, Rennie has all the instincts of a bird dog, running back and forth across the path and into the prairie grass. He returns on call, eager for a tasty reward. On leash, he sometimes needs to be reminded about heel, but is becoming a good partner on walks. Rennie has excellent manners – no counter surfing, furniture hopping, waste-basket prowling nor has he had any indoor accidents, and he rarely barks. Rennie is miserable in a crate, but behaves himself when left alone for several hours in a room where he can look out at all the bird action in the back yard. He follows his foster mom around as if he were velcro’d to her and sleeps contentedly on the floor next to her bed. Rennie has become much more confident since arriving at his foster home, and will likely continue to improve. A home with adults, teenage kids and a fenced in yard would suit him to a T. He is a quick learner, wants to please, and would be a great addition to a family or a wonderful companion for a single person. If you are interested in Rennie, then please fill out the adoption application and mention his name and ID #. Rennie is up to date on his vaccines and heartworm negative and on preventatiive. History: Rennie did not have much human contact before he was surrendered, but lived outside with his siblings and mom, which probably accounts for his shyness. He has become much more confident since arriving at his foster home, and will likely continue to improve.
