Our dog of the week … we really need him out of here!!! He is starting to deteriorate.
Meet Our awesome Ricky ...
If anyone knows this so-called breed, they know these dogs prefer YOU over any toy or treat and with YOU is right where they want to be. These terriers are labeled because of a set of physical characteristics and were the Golden Retriever of the 1960s. Do you remember Petey in The Little Rascals? Petey was of the Pit Bull family. All dogs need kind and patient training to become the pet that they were born to be - and training at any age is an advantage to some extent. Like the many others in the shelter, our terriers show some concern for their where-abouts and want to go home. Many of them are quite young and still have a lot of living to do. Can they do it with you? Don't delay ... let's not leave these loving and deserving dogs in the shelter another day : (.
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need kindly work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
