Rico - 127543

No interest
Sweet and active little guy
  • He loves tennis balls and squeaky toys.
  • His favorite game is fetch but won't give up the toy very quickly; He did allow me to take it from his mouth without issue though.
  • Rico is a 5 yr old neutered male Medium Mix, 28 lbs.
  • He is rescue only due to his designation of nuisance; He chased a girl when she stepped off the school bus (he was already running loose prior to her getting off of the bus); There were reportedly several incidents with Rico but only this one was called in.
  • Dog interaction: Approached when other dog?s back was turned, sniffed but when face to face started to bark loudly and charge other dog, seemed uncomfortable with face to face interaction.
  • He was surrendered by his owners because they were no longer able to care for him; He can leave at any time.
