Facts about Rico Suave

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier

Rico had a very rough start to his young life. He was put in an attic and left alone for days at a time. He was extremely thin and had sores on his body from living in his own waste. When his situation was known, his owner was convinced to give him up, but then his new owner lost his home and was not able to find a place he could take Rico.  In spite of all of this, Rico is a very friendly Pit Bull who enjoys playing fetch in the yard and spending time with people. He tolerates most other dogs, but will do best as an only dog.  He knows his basic commands and walks well on a leash. He has been trained by Good Decisions Dog Training and you can watch his training videos on their Facebook page and ours. He was given structure and boundaries during his training and this lifestyle needs to continue is his new home to maintain his good behavior.  Rico weighs about 60 lbs. and his DOB is Aug. 19, 2015.  He is neutered, microchipped and updated on all of his vaccinations. He is also on a heartworm preventive.  This boy loves to be around people and will snuggle up for petting when given the opportunity. He is learning household etiquette; what is and is not allowed and also that his “bathroom” is outside.  He has made good progress in all areas.  Rico is not food or toy aggressive and has been good around older children. His ideal home would have a safe fenced yard and active owners who will continue his training and make him part of the family.

About Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Nebraska No Kill Canine Rescue (NNKCR) was formed by five people who had a dream that one day all adoptable dogs in Lancaster County would find loving homes.

To accomplish this, we do three things:
Rescue dogs
Rehabilitate dogs
Re-home dogs

NNKCR is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dog rescue group. We provide emergency foster care for homeless dogs, veterinary care for dogs in our care and find forever homes for homeless dogs. NNKCR is an all-volunteer organization, and 100% of all funds donated go toward our rescue efforts and the dogs in our care.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We take advantage of local events sponsored by businesses such as PetSmart, PetCo, Subaru, Verizon and Tractor Supply Company, as well as local fund raisers put on by rescue groups. We are also happy to arrange meet and greets with people who would like to see a dog they saw on our website or at an adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

All prospective adopters contact the group via our website and are required to fill out an adoption form. Volunteers check references and do a home visit. A "meet and greet" is arranged if other family members or pets are involved.
Adoption fees are generally $250.00 for dogs 6 months to 7 years; $150.00 for dogs over 7 years. If a puppy is adopted, the adoption fee is $450.00, but $200 of that is refunded once we have documentation that the animal has been altered. All adult dogs are altered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and tested for heartworm. If the adoption does not work out, NNCKR requires that the dog be returned to us.
