RICO's Info...

I am housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with kids.

RICO's Story...
Rico is a very nice and handsome 8 month old, 62 pound boy. He's really just a big puppy boy at only 8 months. He is reported to be HOUSE TRAINED and GOOD WITH KIDS so a family will be able to have him grow up with the kids and set a good example of caring for and loving a family pet. Rico's a little shy because he's new to the shelter (it's culture shock to go from a home to the loud, busy shelter where the pets don't get a lot of one on one love or attention) but he should warm up in no time once he realizes everyone there is there to help. Rico knows SIT, STAY, and SHAKE. He was left at the shelter on May 24th by his family (through no fault of his own) - animals are left at the shelter daily for a myriad of reasons, some understandable, some not quite so understandable. Let's not blame Rico - he's a great boy who DESERVES a committed owner. He is up to date with shots and will be neutered, heartworm tested, and micro-chipped upon adoption. Rico is in Run 835 (Really he should be in the PUPPY ROOM but he is a little too big for that.) Animals are often moved from Run to Run so if you come to find RICO bring his ID # 585585 and ask for help if you can't find him. Hurry in to see him!

When calling the shelter about a cat or dog, please use THE ID NUMBER, the names are oftentimes made up by volunteers.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

RICO, a Marietta Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marietta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Rottweiler/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
