Find a pet to adopt
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
Hello again. My name is Rainer. I don’t know if anyone might recognize me but I’ve met many of you before. I’m an 8.5 month old male neutered lab/greyhound mix but I was only about 4 months last time we saw each other. I was originally brought here and left in the middle of the night for reasons unknown as a little guy. I was quickly adopted and I really loved my new family and home but something terrible happened and I had to be brought back. They made sure to tell me I didn’t do anything wrong and that they loved me very much. I was sad but I miss having my own people. I love people and playing. I think snuggles are just wonderful. If you sit down I love to lean on your lap and have you scritch my ears. I still am just a puppy and have a lot of learning to do but I like to learn. I want to be included in family activities and if you wouldn’t mind scooting over I would appreciate a spot on the couch. If maybe you think you are thinking you need a new friend to spend your time with. Someone to walk with and hike or even go swimming (maybe I’ve heard about this but I’ve not tried it yet) maybe I could be your new someone. Maybe I could be your newest family? If you think you maybe could be my second chance I would love to meet you, please come see me.
