Meet Renzo! This little Beagle/Manchester Terrier mix is less than 25lbs and about a year old, indicating he’s full grown! Renzo is a sweet and loving pup, learning how warm and inviting humans can be.

At the shelter, Renzo was very nervous and scared. Now that he’s been in a foster home for some time, he’s really blossomed. For his first year of life he was a yard dog so it has taken him some time to acclimate to this large shelter they call a house. Now he romps around with his doggy roommates and plays with all sorts of toys! Even if one of his foster brothers runs off with his bone, he is just as happy playing a good game of chase. Now that he has settled in a good bit, Foster Mom is working on training him with the basics.

Renzo is fully housebroken! He can keep his crate clean (day and night) and signals when he needs to go out. At night, Renzo sleeps in his crate and he’s good with that. During the day, he’d prefer to not have to spend time in there and will bark a little in protest. Yes, he’ll go in for a treat, but he wants to make sure he isn’t missing out on any of the fun! While there is a cat in the house, Renzo doesn’t really think for himself on this front. One of his doggy brothers barks at the cat and gets excited, so Renzo figures he should follow suit. But if Remus isn’t around, he doesn’t pay much attention to her.

When meeting new dogs, Renzo is submissive at first and takes cues very well. He loves playing fetch with the playful pups in the house and doesn’t get upset if he doesn’t make it to the ball first. Once he is comfortable with a new dog, he’ll bounce around and play with them for as long as they’ll allow! He also lives with an older, grumpier dog, and he leaves her alone. When Foster Mom is working or watching tv, he curls up in soft dog bed and spends his time snoozing close by. With a moderate energy level, snoozing is totally acceptable and romping around with his 4-legged buddies or going on walks will suffice for exercise.

Meeting new people is a pretty scary thing for Renzo as he hasn’t done much of that in the short time that he’s been around. Trust takes a while, so letting him get to know you on his time is important. Once he bonds, he’s 100% devoted and loves getting loved on! It just isn’t an instant attachment; you’ve got to earn it! Loud noises scare this little guy, so having a rambunctious household is probably not a good fit.

If you’re looking for a furry friend who you want to build that bond with, Renzo is your man. Once he is comfortable and accepts his new human(s), he will look at you with such adoration. Renzo would do best in a home with another doggy roommate since he has proven to really shadow one of his current siblings, showing him the ropes and that he’s a part of the family. So why not add his love to yours?
