A volunteer writes: With his gleaming coat and perfect white teeth, Rinkles could be on the cover of Doggie GQ; he’s stunning! Playful, snuggly, and all about loving his person, Rinkles was surrendered by his person due to landlord issues. We’re told that he loves playing with children, having lived with a 10 mos. old baby, a 4yo and a 5yo, is relaxed and playful with other dogs(sometimes gets too excited), lived with a 10 yo Shih Tzu, is calm around cats, afraid of loud noises, is well behaved when left home alone, loves to play in the backyard for hours, go for long walks or jogging, and his favorite
snacks are chicken, bananas, apples and fish. Rinkles showed me his housetraining skills and although he bites up on the leash to play from time to time, his leash manners are good. He’s an energetic young dog who is looking for an active person or family where he can get lots of playtime, exercise and structure. He takes treats gently after showing me his ‘sit’, and is always ready for a good snuggle. If you’re a puppy person, ready to provide Rinkles with everything he needs as he transitions into a rock star adult, he’s hoping to meet you.
