Ricky's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ricky's Story...
Born Again Pit Bull Rescue regularly works with the wonderful people at the Del Norte County Animal Control located out in rural Crescent City, CA (a tiny coastal city on the OR/CA border). They have a very small shelter with small indoor 3x6 kennel runs, low foot traffic, odd adoption viewing hours and it rains a lot which means the dogs can’t come outside and play.

We want you to see some really great dogs that they have in their care--it's just a 5-hour drive from Portland to adopt your new BFF! *Please note that occasionally there are volunteers who can assist with transporting the dog from the shelter to Grants Pass/Eugene/Salem/Portland *

Del Norte County Animal Control is located in Crescent City, CA. They are open Monday – Friday from 8am to 5pm. They are closed Saturday and Sunday.

Address: 2650 Washington Blvd - Crescent City, CA 95531

Shelter phone: (707) 464-7235

Adoption fees are between $15 - $95 depending on if the dog has been previously fixed and if you are adopting in Del Norte County or out of the county.

Ricky is one handsome guy, and he's hoping he can steal your heart and win himself his perfect new forever home! Ricky is a young, male pit bull type dog - lab mix who is currently waiting for his forever family at the Del Norte County Shelter in Crescent City, California.

Ricky has been patiently waiting at the shelter since March of 2013 for that special someone to come along, and there's no reason he should still be at the shelter because Ricky is a great catch! Ricky was found as a stray with Lucy (also still waiting for her home) and shelter volunteers suspect the two may be siblings, but if not they are great friends! Ricky loves to play with dogs, especially Lucy, and loves playing with his people as well. Ricky is an active dog and needs someone who can give him the exercise he needs to keep expend all of that energy, especially all the energy he's built up from living at the shelter since March! He could use a little training as well, but with some delicious treats and lots of praise, Ricky should pick it up in no time! This special boy is not only handsome, but he's smart, loving and so much fun as well. Ricky is waiting for you to come save his life and give him his happy, loving forever home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ricky, a Portland American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever for sale in Portland, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
