Renaldo was rescued from a terrible farm in Iowa where they were raising pups to sell to the local pet store for $50. All of the dogs were so covered in fleas that they were black from head to tail. Renaldo is a happy guy, but still a little unsure if the humans being kind to him are for real. Once he gets completely used to his surroundings we think he will be tons of fun. He is a totally adorable little fellow! UPDATE: Renaldo is a playful, happy little fellow. It still takes him awhile to warm up to new people, and likely he will always be that way. He's been through so much that he has a good reason to make people prove themselves. Lately Renaldo is expanding his horizons by venturing out with volunteers on outings to different places, and making new friends by rooming with a yorkie and an Italian Greyhound. He has done very well and likes his new friends. He is an adorable, gorgeous, playful fellow with an affable personality. Renaldo is a male Chihuahua. He was born in June of 2005 and weighs 14.8 pounds.

Abundant hugs, kisses and love xxx! Debra" Renaldo sends Debra many grateful kisses and very happy hugs!

Thanks for Visiting Our Animals!

Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization. Hearts United for Animals does long distance adoptions if there are safe flights and we have volunteers in the area to do a home visit. We require an application, references and a home visit to adopt one of our dogs. Our dogs are all spayed or neutered and are current on health care. We can cat test a dog if requested. If you are interested in adopting a dog, we can give you more information on each dog if you click the Adoption Info & Application link above. Buddies are people who support the dog and send them love while they are waiting for their new home. The dog does not live with the buddy.
