How to Adopt Me

Meet me at the time/location above!


Hi, I’m Rico!

And I’m the sweetest and most lovable boy you’ll ever meet!  I would be a great family dog or just a companion to one, I just want to share my love with whoever is around me!   I may be an older boy, but I’m still a fetch-a-holic! But if you need to get work done or go run errands, I have no problem lazing about the house or napping until you are ready for some cuddles! Since I grew up being the only dog in the home and didn’t get a lot of opportunities to socialize, I should continue to be the only dog in the home. I am also use to having a back yard to play in, so that would be an added plus (but not a requirement)!
