Rin and another Paws dog Aubrey having some fun in the play yard.

Rinny is a handsome shepherd boy who is looking for a new home with some special people!

Rin was adopted as a pup to a high anxiety home (our fault) and was returned to us and placed with our trainers where he’s learning how to be a dog. His family loved him but he doesn’t seem to know how to enjoy other dogs too much or how to relax around them - he will play with some dogs, typically his size or bigger.

In addition, Rinny came to us with special foods as we were told he had food allergies which we have been unable to discern - he has been started on a low ingredient food that is working just great.

If you have shepherd experience, perhaps you could serve as a foster for him as he learns to live in a home where he is free to be a dog w/o stress and positive reinforcement corrections. We are happy to provide further training while in your care as a foster or adopter at our expense.


Rin is currently at John Gagnon’s Pet Resort in Colchester CT
