Rico is a sweet young dog that needs an ACTIVE household that will be PATIENT to work with him and continue his training. Rico would be good in a house with NO cats or young children. He does love kids but can play rough.  Rico might be OK in a house with another dog if it’s the right dog and has a slow introduction.

He is very reactive when he’s on leash and sees another dog. He does great the dog park. He just spent a few days at Camp Bow Wow and loved it. The camp counselors said “
Rico did great! He warmed up quickly and fits into the pack perfectly. He is so sweet and I loved to seeing his personality show through his stay.”

Rico likes all the people that he meets and is happiest when he’s sitting close by or laying on your lap. He loves if he can sneak onto the bed and likes to snuggle first thing in the morning.

Rico needs to continue working on his obedience training. The rescue will offer four sessions with an approved dog trainer to help adopter in the best ways to train and work with Rico.

Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.

Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed.

The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.

Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.
