About Tico

Adoption Fee: $50.00
Rat Terrier mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

I adopted Tico as a 1 yr old from a pet rescue in 2017 as a companion for my 9 mo. old goldendoodle. Tico is from Costa Rica. They got along well, lots of rough puppy play. We also have 3 cats & Tico gets along fine with them, the cats call the shots with him! But now he can be aggressive toward our doodle so will do best in a new home without other dogs or kids.But makes a good companion, affectionate, playful, but can growl if startled). Unfortunately in 8/2019 Tico fell ill & by day end his back legs were totally limp. My vet X-rayed his spine which indicated he had damage from a prior untreated infection, resulting in his paralysis. He can pee & defecate on his own. He wears diapers & scoots around the house in a drag bag or in his wheelchair, full of life! Need to rehome him because he was aggressive with my 2 yr old granddaughter who spends a lot of time with me & she has now an infant brother. I have made changes to keep them apart & safe for now but best to rehome Tico.
