Ren has become a real fan of humans, and that's because they make him feel loved and safe. If you come meet this sweet puppy, he will lean into you and will love to snuggle in your lap. He can be a little nervous in new environments and when meeting new people, but as soon as he's assured that he's safe, he's your new best friend.

Now in foster with his brother, Ren has pelvic back limb paralysis. He's now learning how to scoot around in a doggie wheelchair. He's doing well in his playpen and, excited to see his fosters, tries to scoot to them. He even does bunny hops with his front legs. He's having fun playing with his brother and is curious about his fosters' big dogs, calm with them and giving them kisses. He also loves his fosters' teenagers, and he enjoys playing with toys. And he especially loves cuddling in laps.

Ren is making such progress on getting around in his wheelchair. He will love to move in with people who are home most of the day, and he'll enjoy a calm, mannerly dog buddy. Come meet him. He'll hope to become your cuddle bunny!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
