RENO - help me find him his forever home!


Breed Doberman pinscher
Gender Male
Size Large
Neutered Yes
Status Available

Reno was originally owned by an elderly gentleman whose health was declining rapidly. The gentleman’s daughter came to the conclusion that her dad could barely take care of himself, much less a middle-aged Doberman too. So the daughter stepped in to care for Reno. She took care of all the vetting, trips to the dog park, and whatever else Reno needed. She truly loved Reno; she even brought him cheeseburgers when she picked him up from her dad’s house. But that all came to an end when the daughter went back to work; her commute was two hours each way. Not wanting to take Reno to a shelter (where his chances of getting adopted would be slim at best), the daughter asked everyone she could think of to take Reno in. No one was able to accommodate this gentle soul…and that’s how he ultimately ended up with me.

Reno is somewhere between seven and eight years old. He was really overweight when he came to me, so I put him on a healthy diet and got his teeth thoroughly cleaned. He looks wonderful now. He gets along with everyone he meets, whether human or canine. His former owner claimed he was not fond of cats, but honestly the only thing I’ve ever seen him bark at are the squirrels.

Reno is neutered, up to date on shots, and has been on heartworm preventative. His recent x-rays showed four sound legs, a normal heart, and no arthritis in his back. He is probably the easiest dog I have ever had the pleasure of caring for…just a sweet, mellow, easy-going sort of guy. He wants nothing more than to rest his chin on someone’s leg and get petted. Reno will play a bit with younger dogs, but he does not require a huge yard. He would be content with leash walks and a few potty trips per day. His favorite place in the world is the middle of my bed, but he would happily settle for a spot on someone’s couch.
