Brief Bio: Meet Ricky! Ricky is still a little puppy and hasn’t had a very good start in life. Ricky’s canine mother is a very lean stray in a mountain where there are barely any food and shelter. Ricky and his littermates of 7 puppies were found in a dirty, run-down factory where his mother found shelter under a container truck. All the puppies were very lean. When Ricky’s foster mom found them, she was very heartbroken and quickly brought them back to her home filled with love and care. It was so sad when the foster mom saw their poops were full of garbage bags, threads, and wires. They didn’t have any food to eat and were surviving on garbage.
We are looking for an active home that will give Ricky lots of love and continue to socialize him. He can be shy at first but is a very loving and sweet pup. Ricky is currently being fostered with a dog trainer and getting lots of doggy manners. Ricky is good on leash, great with dogs of all sizes and is currently working on agility as well! Ricky is a very smart puppy and will blossom with positive training. Ricky will come with free training from his foster mom (dog trainer), Ricky would also do best in a home with another dog, he loves the companionship and a buddy to play with! Ricky is patiently waiting!
