Thank you, Sandra Robertson, for giving Rico his name.

Rico continues to make progress in his foster home. He is a sweet and energetic boy. Rico loves people and other dogs, but he sometimes has a difficult time controlling his excitement. Rico is looking for a patient and active household. He enjoys his walks and is great on leash.  Rico will need a forever home with another dog and a fenced yard.

Rico is doing well in his foster home. He is looking for a home that is experienced with young, active boxers. Rico is housebroken and is doing great with his crate training. He gets along well with both the male and female dog in his foster home. He especially loves playing tug with them!

Rico was found as a stray and was estimated to be around a year of age. The shelter contacted rescue for help when they discovered that Rico is deaf. They indicated that Rico has been awesome at the shelter. He loves everyone and is very excited to see other dogs. Rico has also been great with children and he loves attention. He knows how to sit with hand signals and a treat.

Rico just arrived at his new foster home, where he is living with two other dogs (male and female). His foster mom indicates that Rico is a young guy with tons of energy! He walks very well on leash. Rico is housebroken and also does fine in a crate. He is looking for a home with a securely fenced yard and another dog to be his ears. Rico will need a patient adopter who can continue to provide structure and training.
