If you’re looking for a little guy who loves to snuggle and is over the puppy crazies, you’ll want to take a look at Rico. This sweet 4 year-old Chihuahua mix male was surrendered to an overcrowded county dog shelter by his family along with his pal Bella. We don’t know what circumstances led to the pair becoming homeless but they are both great little dogs. While they get along well together, they don’t seem to be particularly bonded with each other so may be adopted separately. Rico has gotten along well with the other dogs in his foster home too so should be fine moving into a home with another canine companion or two. Rico has excellent crate manners and is likely to be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. He weighs about 13 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. Rico’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. Since arriving at Canine Lifeline, Rico has had a dental cleaning and now flashes a pearly white smile. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Rico. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
