Say hello to Richie... after being abandoned at a local dog park, he found himself in doggy jail. But the kind folks at the shelter saw something special in Richie, and reached out to us to save him. Richie is about 7-8 years old & sweet as can be. He is a happy, older gentleman who enjoys quiet lap time, loves walks & gets along with other dogs.
Richie is 7 pounds of adorable! This little guy is quite charismatic. There is something about him that makes people smile. Though he is cautious with his trust, once earned, Richie bonds very deeply with those who care for him. He has a very playful streak but most of the time is happy to follow us around the house and spend time on our laps or sharing a dog bed with his canine buddies.
Richie knows to do his business outside. He sleeps through the night just fine and wakes up happy and playful. Richie’s barking is very low for his breed and mostly barks briefly in happiness when his favorite people return home. Richie will be a great companion to anyone with love to give. He does not need much space so an apartment or condo would be fine. He likes walks and is great on the leash.
Richie is neutered, microchipped & up to date on vaccines. His adoption fee is $250.
All of our dogs are in private volunteer foster homes, and as such these individuals are most qualified to answer any questions regarding the dog.
We do not have a central shelter or kennel locations - you must make a private one-on-one meet and greet appointment with each individual dog at the foster family's convenience. To protect our foster families' privacy, we must have an APPROVED adoption application on file before we release their contact information.
All of our dogs are fixed (spayed/neutered) and up to date on shots. We have a 2 week foster-to-adopt period to make sure the dog is a fit for your family. Adoption fees vary from dog-to-dog.
Please note that an approved application DOES NOT guarantee that the dog will be placed with you. The final decision rests with our fosters as they know the dogs the best, and please be aware that there may be other applicants interested in the same dog. We continue accepting applications on a dog until the dog is with the new adoptive family in their home.
