My name is Ricky, and I was left at the shelter on 9/20/16. I am a black and white hound mix, and I weigh 42 pounds. I am also about 3-4 years old. Unfortunately, I am heartworm positive, so I will take some additional care. If you can't give me a new forever home, perhaps you would consider donating to my medical care. Stay tuned for updates! UPDATE 11/2/2016: I weigh 58 pounds now!
Goofy is a funny-animal cartoon character created in 1932 at Walt Disney Productions.. Goofy is a close friend of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and is one of Disney's most recognizable characters. He is normally characterized as extremely clumsy and dimwitted, yet this interpretation is not always definitive; occasionally Goofy is shown as intuitive, and clever, albeit in his own unique, eccentric way.
We just had to set the mood to introduce Ricky, our newest resident “goof ball”. Beautiful, gangly, big footed, Ricky is a hound mix picked up in the middle of nowhere. No one ever came looking for him, so he is officially ours and looking for his forever home. He came in underweight at 42 pounds, but he is an enthusiastic eater, so it won’t be long until he is at his optimum weight. He is 3 -4 years old and wants nothing more than to get as close to you as he can and convince you he needs a belly rub.
Ricky is now neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations. He unfortunately tested positive for heartworms, so he has already started the treatment protocol. We have had several dogs adopted from the shelter who were HW positive. They are treated (with our help) from their new adoptive home. If someone were to adopt Ricky, we would make sure they have the help they need to get this precious boy all healthy again.
Ricky loves life. He lives it to the fullest no matter what he is doing. He is dog and cat friendly, and has adjusted very well to living inside, walking on a leash, bathing, and all the things dogs need to know to be great pets.
An approved adoption screening form is the first step on our adoption process. To obtain one, call the shelter at 618-262-7109, email the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org, or come by and meet Ricky and fill one out in person. YOU would be the goofy one to pass on this boy!
Act quickly to adopt RICKY. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
