My story

My name is Ren and I am a mix of Chihuahua and Dachshund or MinPin. Whatever I am, I have been told I’m cute. I am about two years old and my coloring is brown.

I was in a hoarding situation with way too many dogs, and so I haven’t had a good start in life. I am very mistrustful when you first meet me because of my past living situation. When I first arrived at my foster home, I didn’t go near anyone. But my foster mom kept picking me up and having me sit in her lap while she petted me. That was kind of nice, and now I go sit by her on my own, and I have even crawled in her lap!

Strangers are frightening, but my foster mom is working with me to teach me that not all people are bad or scary. If you adopt me, you will have to be patient with me. I want to learn to love and trust, but it will take time. My foster mom says your patience with me will be well worth it because I am a sweet boy. My vaccinations are all up to date and I am working on being fully housetrained. I am also neutered.

You can meet me or learn more about me by contacting JAN at I’m being fostered in the El Cajon area of San Diego County.
