Rick is a work of art. He has an unusual paint jobmostly black with some brindle trim on his feet, but also a few brindle spots scattered around. He has expressive brindle-colored eyebrows. Ricks background is a mystery, but hes a rather tall and slim guy; maybe theres some greyhound in his family history; he definitely has a slender greyhound-like nose. When Rick is very brave in his kennel, but alone with strangers, he can be rather shy at first. He needs some leash training, but he is cooperative on the whole.
On a field trip away from the kennel, RIck was relaxed in the car and was very gentle with a much smaller dog and another one that was at the home where he visited. Once he became comfortable, he enjoyed running around the garden, up and down the steps and he scouted out a quiet place to rest under a bush. He answered to his name, too. There was a little bit of a wait for a tail wag, but it came!
Rick would be a great addition to a family. Hed be a good walking or hiking partner or a buddy for another canine friend. If you want a dog to sit with you at your feet, hed go in for that, too. Hes just a sweet boy who needs some one-on-one attention and a family to call his own. He will need a little patience, but based on his interaction with his kennel mates, it wouldnt take long for him to feel at home, gain a little confidence, and reach his potential as a joyful, sweet dog. He exhibited a glimmer of all those traits during his visit. And he is good with cats.
Maybe you could give this handsome boy a chance. He has a lot of love and tenderness to give.
Rick is being fostered near Ajijic, MX and can be adopted locally or to parts of the US and Canada.
