Did you know that when you adopt a dog from our program you save not only the dog you adopt, but also a dog currently in the Baldwin County Animal Shelter who gets to enter our program.

Rico is one of the first 2 dogs in our program that started in 2015.  Rico and his pal Billy were adopted by a former employee of the prison.  They lived a good life for 5 years.  

Sadly in November 2020, their mom left the marriage and relocated out of state.  Rico and Billy remained with their dad in Georgia.  

Tragically, just before Christmas 2020, their dad passed away in his sleep, leaving the boys homeless.  When their dads body was found, the boys were taken to the Morgan County Animal Shelter.  We were notified the evening of December 20th and went the next morning to pick them up.

Rico is a well-adjusted, happy boy who loves every human and every dog he meets.  Very outgoing and friendly, Rico loves to be around people and other dogs.   He reads other dogs well and adjusts his interactions appropriately. 

Rico enjoys being outside as long as its not raining.  He is not a water dog.  A bit prissy about getting wet, he heaves a big sigh, and tolerates bath time.

Ricos joy has been infectious and he has brought much delight to all the inmates and officers who live and work in his dorm.   

Rico has excellent house manners.  He is clean, quiet, and very low maintenance.  He never harms his trainers personal belongings.  Rico thinks he is a lap dog, curling up with his trainer any opportunity offered.

Outside, Rico is fun and playful.  Ricos favorite toy is a big rope toy that he plays with interactively with his trainer in the yard.   

Please check in on our FB page for more pictures and a letter from Ricos trainer Mr. Hahn.

Rico is approximately 7 years young, a 64 lb hunk of love, neutered, UTD on rabies vaccine and heartworm negative.  Rico has many good years in him to love his new person or family.  

Please go to our FB page for more information, photos and letters from Ricos trainers.
