No one said it would be easy, they only said it would be worth it.
Meet Reno! Reno was rescued along with his litter mates when they were abandoned on the streets with no food or water at a very young age. Thankfully a rescuer was able to get them all off the streets and to the vet for a full check up. Reno has since gotten a clean bill of health. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning and raising a puppy. Reno is patiently waiting for a home to call his own!
We are so very happy that we were lucky enough to have Reno come into our lives! As I said before he is a constant source of amusement and joy! His is all puppy, he chews, whatever is near goes into his mouth, plays at full speed then collapses at the drop of a hat for a nap, much like my daughters when they were babies!
I think the most enjoyment we get however is when we take him places and open his world up to new wonders! He is so well behaved, sits, lays down, stays on command (albeit sometimes only for about ten seconds which seems to be the length of his attention span!} We recently visited Old Sacramento with our grand daughters and he sat patiently at the table while we ate, rode with us on a carriage ride around town and sat with us for hours at a poolside table watching the girls swim. He is a great travel dog, loves the truck, especially when the girls are in the back seat with him!
The cat is finally accepting the fact that there is another dog in the house. For the first week he hid under the bed in our office and only came out to go to his box. We had to put the food and water under the bed with him to keep Reno away. We are now at a point where they have both reached an impasse. The cat will tolerate the dog enough to come out and sit on the couch with us at night and Reno has learned not to get too close to the cat as he has a quick left jab.
Although when it comes to food they have no problem standing in the area together where we have the food out. The only problem we have at the moment is Reno eating the cat food and Frenchie eating the dog food but we are sure they will sort it out.
It was a tough decision we made to get a new dog so soon after losing our “Boomer” but we had a hole in our heart that needed filling and Reno was just the solution. We miss Boo but are so very blessed to have found such a joyful, fun. loving puppy to keep us active and young. Thank you Melody for all you do to rescue this amazing breed and for giving us the opportunity to have such a sweet, loving and gentle dog in our lives. It’s hard to imagine life without him now.
We will be traveling across country soon and I will keep you posted on the “Adventures of Reno”! I am attaching some photo’s of our time together!
If you have extra time on your hand and would like to help please consider volunteering! Rescue groups need dedicated volunteers to help with events, fundraisers, home checks, transports, etc. All of these things help enable the rescue to expand their network and help more dogs in need.
