At 1 ½ years old, Ricky came to us from a local animal control where his family had surrendered him. There was another dog in the home that didn’t like Ricky, and consequently Ricky was displaying other behavior problems they didn’t know how to work with in their busy home.
We are just getting to know Ricky. He still needs to be neutered and that will be a bigger surgery than usual because he only has one testicle that has descended. The other will need abdominal surgery to find. For now we are working on his manners when he plays ball—he loves tennis balls (!), and stopping the game is not easy for him. Overall he’s a sweet guy who just needs a bit of polishing before going back home to a new family.
