My daughter adopted this dog. He was not a good fit for her small apartment in town.I agreed to help find him a home. Rick needs home with a fenced in yard. He likes to sleep inside at night. He is housebroke. Neutured and micro chipped. He likes to play. Needs a home with someone who will hang with him and play with him. He likes to go in and out alot.He barks at strangers and is protective of his family. That is why I recommend a fence. He is a larger dog and that frightens some people. I will have to put him in shelter very soon so please him me save him.
