About Rico Suave

Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Please meet Rico Suave!!! Rico was rescued after being tossed out onto a busy highway. Thankfully a Good Samaritan stopped traffic and was able to save him from being hit by cars. Rico was in pretty pathetic condition upon being rescued. He was so malnourished and flea infested, it is believed he may not have survived much longer in the physical condition he was in at that point. Rico is estimated to be at least 8 years old, and although he most likely has endured a rough life until this point, he doesn't seem to hold grudges against humans, although he is not a fan of male humans. He loves the company of other small dogs, and loves cats. He is currently in a home with multiple animals, and is having a difficult time with house training. Rico will need a home with someone/a family who is either retired or works from home, in order to get the gentle training he apparently missed out on in his younger years. Please understand this dog is not available on a first come, first serve basis. He will stay in foster care until we find what we think is the best match for Rico. For more info. or to apply yo adopt, please email his foster mom at [email protected]
