Ren is a gentle, good-natured boy believed to be a Lab and hound mix. He has a lovable retriever face and a cute wrinkled brow. He would be ideal for someone who is home a lot. He has very low activity needs and is content to sleep most of the day but will enjoy going for a walk and a sniff. He is approximately six years old, and smaller than a typical Lab at around 50 pounds.

Ren’s likes to have his people nearby and will spend a large part of the day settled at your feet or close by in the same room. He can get a little mouthy when he’s getting attention and is learning to stick to cuddles and kisses and direct his chewing to other objects. He will also sometimes “Eskimo kiss” by touching noses or gently lay a paw on a person’s leg for attention or just to feel someone beside him. He likes scratches behind the ears and at the base of the tail.

He came into foster care knowing no commands, but has learned sit, down and shake a paw. He is easily motivated by food indoors.

Ren has some special needs. He has a grade 6 heart murmur and we have done all the expensive testing and at this point the vet feels he just needs to monitor his activity level (no running and just short walks). He also seems to have some neurosis that makes him a little quirky. We are not sure if he suffered some abuse, a physical trauma or was born this way but some anti anxiety meds seem to help him with this. He is a sweet boy who was found as a stray at a rural pound and deserves a quiet home where he can learn that people are good and will treat him right despite his quirks.

Ren is best to go to a home without other dogs. He is good with kids and cats.
