About Rico

Adoption Fee: $320.00
Chihuahua mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Rico is a shy 2 year old Chihuahua mix looking for a forever home just as special as himself. He weighs 11 pounds and is full grown. Rico originally was taken into the Humane Society with abrasions and wounds to his front legs. He has been healing and has been cleared by the vet to find his home! Rico will need a patient home that understands he will need time and patience to build trust with his people. He has done well around men and women. Due to how fearful he can be, we recommend he go to a home with no one under the age of 16. Rico does great with other dogs his size and wouldn't mind having a canine companion in the home to help him come out of his shell. He is kennel trained but will need further training at home once he gets comfortable. Rico would do best practicing in the house or in the backyard on a leash before trying to go out in public. He likes all kinds of toys and also loves treats! Rico will flourish in a home where there isn't too much going on and he has the ability to warm up at his own pace. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and vet checked. His adoption fee is $320 and comes with 30 days of free pet insurance, and comes with a free vet visit. To meet him, come to our location Tues-Sun 11am to 6pm at 1102 W. Hatcher Road in Phoenix 85021
