Adopt Ren

*PLEASE NOTE: The first step in the process is to complete an adoption application, which can be found here: Adoption Application

Please meet Ren, who was rescued from Puerto Vallarta after she was found by a good Samaritan.  Ren was living alongside of a riverbed with her siblings fighting to survive.  Ren was flown to the U.S. for a second chance at life and has been settling into her foster home for the past several weeks. She is approximately a year old and weighs just about 30 pounds.

Ren is the life of the party once you let her get to know you and she trusts you.  She can get any dog to play with her, she absolutely loves kids, and she loves to run.  She does need an adopter who can be patient with her in the beginning, since she does take some time to warm up to you.  Once she’s settled in, she’ll do anything for you and loves to go adventure with you.  She loves to explore at the park, hit the hiking trails and go for long walks.  She is a medium energy dog who would thrive off of a structured household who can keep helping her to gain her confidence.

Her forever home should be patient as when you first meet her she is very timid. She needs an active and adventurous home who will keep her socialized and exercised!

If you are interested in Ren, please fill out an adoption application here: Adoption Application
