Rene is a 12 years young Papillion, who does not know that he is considered a senior. He is very playful and snuggly. Most of his teeth had to be removed because of the condition he was in prior to being rescued. However, he does not seem bothered by it and can still eat small kibble dry food. Rene will even work for food and speaks and rolls over on command when treats are involved.
Rene is great with dogs, cats, and children of all ages. This guy has done well with even considerate toddlers between ages 2-4 yrs old. Rene is house trained, kennel-trained, and loves going on car rides.
**Please note that like all pups of similar breed, this pet has a high grooming requirement. He/She will need to be groomed every 6-8 weeks, which requires more than just cutting his/her hair back, so a grooming reference is required. We ask that you factor the cost of grooming into your pet care budget.
Adoption includes vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. Current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. Rene is heartworm negative and, like all dogs, must remain on heartworm preventative, obtained from a vet, for the rest of his life.
If you are interested in Rene, please fill out a Dog Adoption Application
Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).
**Local adoptions preferred (Greater New Orleans and surrounding area). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.
