Reno's Story...
Our foster dogs live as family members in the foster home until chosen for adoption. If you are interested and live within 100 miles of Cincinnati email his foster mom, Donna, doffen28@aol.com for more information on how he can become part of your family.


**********IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE PLEASE IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS*******
direct any and all questions (that includes fees and location) about this sweet pup to his foster mom, Donna, by email doffen28@aol.com Using any other email will just add a delay in you getting the info.


Reno is a sweet little guy who is about 4 years old. He arrived at the shelter because his owner could not longer afford him. I wasn't sure about fostering such a small dog (I prefer larger dogs) but I have been pleasantly surprised at how much my husband I enjoy him. He is such a social and sweet dog. He gets along great with our 3 other dogs who are much larger than he is.

He appears to be housetrained and he comes when called. After spending months in the shelter laying on the concrete floor he appears to be in heaven lounging on a soft dog bed. He also goes into his crate one his own and burrows into the blankets to keep his little body warm. He looks a bit too thin so he probably needs to gain another pound or two.

I think Reno will do well in many different types of households. He is friendly, not yappy ( he has a sweet quiet bark when someone comes to our door), he gets along great with dogs and but will chase after cats. He loves to be held but he's also content laying on his dog bed taking a snooze.

You can contact his foster mom, Donna, by email doffen28@aol.com for more information on how he can become part of your family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Reno, a Cincinnati Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in Cincinnati, or seeking a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in Cincinnati.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cincinnati already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Cincinnati breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat Terrier/Chihuahua breeders who help with Rat Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cincinnati paves the way for another one to be saved.
