Meet Rico Suave!

Rico could possible be an American Bulldog / American Pitbull Terrier mix. He is neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, heartworm tested negative and on flea/tick and heartworm preventative. He is potty trained and crate trained. He gets along with other dogs and cats as well.

Rico is a ladies man. He even has a heart shaped nose! He is happy, energetic, goofy and loving life. Rico lived in a shelter for 302 days and is in a foster home now. He was a favorite of the shelter staff and they were emotional when he left to live life in a home! His foster mom is showing him what life is like in a home. She is teaching him manners and communicating her expectations so that he can grow up to be a perfect gentleman. He would be a perfect running partner and could likely even participate in dog sports! We recommend Rico participate in a dog training class with his new owner to ensure that the efforts of his foster home aren’t lost. Rico thrives when he understands expectations and will be an incredibly rewarding dog to see blossom. A true rags to riches story! He will turn some heads!

If you feel you can provide Rico with a desirable forever home, please email for more information or an adoption application.
