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.
