Ricky is a gentle and quiet boy with sweet temperament. He’s obedient and affectionate around familiar faces; he gets along well with dogs and cats. He is friendly with strangers, adults and kids. His favorite pastime is his daily walks and running at neighboring parks with play pals. The perfect family for him would be the one that is experienced in dog handling, willing to commit to training and socializing him, so his confidence will keep improving.
Ricky’s rescue story:
Ricky and his siblings were born strays near a suburban TNR feeding site. Soon after they were rescued, Ricky’s two siblings were adopted. Ricky, due to his introvert temperament, was left behind at the shelter for one year. For another year he was moved between four different foster families to broaden his socialization experiences.
In the beginning Ricky was scared of strangers, and trembled with fear when walking on streets with heavy traffic. Now he has overcome most of those problems, though is still a little shy and reserved with new people.
