Meet Reggie: We originally saved Reggie from the Stanislaus county shelter a year and a half ago, after he had been hit by a car. Reggie was always an easy going and friendly guy. He thrive in his foster home & then was adopted a few weeks later. We just got this message that the family is no longer able to keep Reggie due to demolition of their house, but that it is no fault of his own, he is a wonderful dog!
We are committed to finding Reggie the BEST home that will love him, cherish him and adapt with life’s changes. Sweet Reggie is a 7 yr old Wheaton Terrier who weighs 48 lbs. He is great with dogs and kids, housetrained, neutered, vetted, vaccinated, chipped and utd on monthly preventatives.
Why is the dog being given up?: Our home is being demolished - literally. Most of the house is under construction and being torn down to the studs. We are living in an RV and we have no yard. We love Reggie but we have no place to keep him. He is miserable and deserves better.
He loves to go for walks. He always wants to be in the same room as his family and is very affectionate. Reggie is a little touchy about his back end and I think it is because he was hit by a car before we adopted him. That said, he loves his back, right at tail, to be scratched.

He has a great mohawk and he is such a sweetheart. He just hangs out with us and is very affectionate. Sometimes he chases his tail - so funny. The biggest thing is, he loves to feel a connection, to be talked to and petted. Then he lays down and just hangs out. He greets me every day after work, so excited to see me. Also, since we do not have a yard, he has gotten out a couple of times and does not wander far. He stays close to his family and home but we live close to a busy street and with the construction we need to get him to a safer environment. He is pretty low key and EXTREAMLY cute.
