Meet Ricky

(Note: All pertinent information is available on our website, visit for applications.)

Meet Ricky! He’s a 5 year old, 45 lb. super friendly boy. We are guessing he is a whippet-hound mix.

This sweet tail-wagger already knows sit, is very loving and friendly. Ricky came to us after living in a tiny outdoor enclosure so he would probably benefit from a doggy companion to play with and show him the ropes. He’s thrilled to be out now and loves attention. He’s very sweet, very quiet, good with other dogs.

Update from his foster: “We are still getting to know him (Ricky) he arrived Wednesday late afternoon, what we know is he’s sweet, quiet, friendly, good with dogs and cats, definitely hound in him, loves to sniff, with leash training could be good fast walker, hiker, jogging partner, good in crate, housebroken (pretty awesome considering he lived in outdoor chain link ken for 5 yrs!). He definitely has pep in his step, 5 is a great age! past teething, chewing, grabbing age. He gets zoomies and probably would walk as long as you will.”

Ricky is housebroken, neutered, UTD on vaccinations/preventatives, dewormed and microchipped and housebroken.
