Facts about Ricky

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: HWTH#15401A
This is Ricky (HWTH#15401A). He is a Chihuahua mix, DOB: 9/13/13. Ricky weighs approximately 12 pounds and stands 13 inches at the shoulders. His mother is Hazel (HWTH#15400A). Ricky, his mother (Hazel) and another companion dog (Ms Blue) were all relinquished to Halfway to Home because the owner had no time for them and no longer wanted to be bothered with them. While Hazel and Ms Blue are very friendly, poor Ricky is shy and appears to have had little to no socialization in his young life. His new owner will need to be willing to give Ricky time to adjust to his new environment along with lots of love and structure. Once he feels safe and knows he is loved, his whole personality will change and the sweet, loving little guy he is will emerge. Once Ricky has really settled into his new home, he will also need to be socialized with people (he seems to be ok with other dogs) and will benefit from positive basic obedience training to help with leash training and the bonding process. Ricky is crate trained but may still need to be house trained. For more information on Ricky, please contact Suzanne at tele # 661-824-4495.

About Halfway to Home

About Our Rescue Group...

Halfway To Home was formed in 2001 due to the need in the Antelope Valley to rescue the many homeless, helpless pets. We have animals from individuals who have to give up pets, and from animal shelters that have darling individuals who need to be spared euthanasia. There are puppies coming from individuals who did not spay and neuter in a timely manner. Your tax deductible donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 512 Rosamond, CA 93560 or you can visit us on our web site at and make a donation through PayPal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Come and see us every Saturday & Sunday, rain or shine from 1 to 5 PM at the Westside Palmdale Petsmart, located on 10th Street West, next to Trader Joe's, just south of Rancho Vista Blvd (Avenue P).

We are in need of volunteers to help out at our pet adoptions at PetSmart in west Palmdale on Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. If interested, please visit us during our adoption hours at the west Palmdale PetSmart or call Suzanne at 661-824-4495.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption procedure includes an application to make sure the dog and the people will be a good match, an adoption fee to cover the cost for shots, spaying or neutering, and a home check. Halfway to Home dogs are adopted out to be part of the family, and many of them are housetrained, if not, we ask that you are willing to undertake that task. Our dogs are intended to be indoor/outdoor family members. Doggie doors are a plus.
