TO BE KILLED 3/26/19
PUBLICLY ADOPTABLE .
SWEETHEART RICO HAS BEEN AT THE SHELTER SINCE 2/19! All this poor boy dreams of, as he waits in his small kennel day in and day out, is for someone to pick him. He's truly a wonderful boy, & so easily overlooked!
RICO is a dream walker. He trots happily by your side, so thrilled to be out & in the company of friends who simply can’t get enough of this serious faced fella who has the sweetest personality. Isn’t that always the way? The tough guy, with the heart of pure gold? He is so stinking adorable too – only 41 lbs & a face full of character. His furrowed brow, his many expressions, each one cuter than the last, he is curious about the world & everyone in it. And MG, could anyone be more fetching in a navy jacket? LOL Don’t miss out on #foster or #adopting this adorable, petite guy.
A volunteer writes:
Señor Suave's got nothing on this boy! With his gorgeous, apple-cinnamon coat, perfectly-perked ears, & the most sweetly-wrinkled forehead you ever did see. We're told this sensational sweetheart previously lived well with children, enjoys snuggles, long walks, & savory snacks, & isn't a big fan of scary storms, but hey, that's what rainy cuddles are for! And while he may look forever-worried with those aforementioned wrinkles, this expert-level walker, & genuinely-gentlest gentleman's only real concern is finding someone to love forever. Could it be you? .
