Hi there! I'm RonRon, and I see you're looking at my freckles! Those cute nose freckles are only ONE of the many things that make me a great boy! You see, I'm just a really special dog. I'm hard of hearing- not totally deaf, but I don't hear a lot of sounds. Guess what, though? My hearing isn't a big deal at all- it hasn't stopped me from learning lots of tricks! I even know sign language! I've learned the signs and commands for: sit, stay, down, drop it, shake, and high five. I'm fully potty trained- I even know to ring a bell to let my foster mom know when I need to go out. I'm also trained on a collar that vibrates! If I'm out in the yard, just vibrate my collar with the remote and I'll run right up to you. I told you that I'm a smart, special boy :)

I'm also just a real sweetheart! I love to play in the yard and go on walks. Sometimes I even go jogging with Foster Mom. When I get excited, I hop around like a bunny! I can't help it; my happiness radiates into my legs! But I also love a good snuggle in my crate or on the couch. I am crate trained, but I'm such a well-mannered boy that Foster Mom leaves me out while she's at work. She knows I won't chew or get into anything I'm not supposed to- I'm that good! My Foster Mom also says that I'm one of the snuggliest pups she's ever met- she just loves it when I climb into her lap and tuck my soft, velvety head under her chin for cozy snooze. I love it, too- I was on my own before I was rescued, so now I relish every chance I have to get some loving from my human friends! Nothing makes me happier!

I'm just waiting for the forever person who will appreciate what a good, special boy I am. Will YOU the person for me? I'll reward you with a lifetime of loves and kisses!

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption. However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Further, because 'pit bull terrier type dog' is not a breed we can list and because this dog has a blocky head and other characteristics that make the public perceive him/her as a pit bull, we are listing him/her as a pit bull mix. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.
