Ricky - ADOPTED's Story...
Ricky is an adorable, spunky, tiny guy who entered the CSTR foster program on 2/28/11. Our vet estimates that he was approximately 8 weeks old at the time. He was being neglected and possibly abused and was surrendered to our vet by a good samaritan who just couldn't stand to see him treated as he was. The person who originally had him said that he is a Lhasa Apso mix, but based upon his size, looks, etc., we estimate that if there is Lhasa in him, it is very little and guess he has more Yorkie and possibly Pomeranian in him. Ricky is a happy, friendly fellow who loves to play, run and wrestle with his new foster siblings. He is a little guy, weighing currently at a little over 2 pounds, so we estimate that he's going to be a pretty small dog once he is full grown. This dog is fostered in Tallahassee, FL, and adoption applications will be accepted from individuals living within a 75 mile radius.
