Rico is very good on a leash and would enjoy accompanying you on walks around the neighborhood or in the parks. He is housetrained and does well in the crate once he gets settled. He would be happy as an only pet (where he could get all the attention!) but also does fine with some other dogs. Rico traveled all the way from New Mexico to find his forever family, and will be a fantastic companion for the lucky person or family who adopts him. Please come and meet this handsome boy. He can't wait to meet you! For more information, please see our website listing for Rico or contact email@example.com.
