Richie is a sweet, active black Lab mix. He is playful and affectionate. He walks fairly well on a leash and loves his crate but still needs supervision inside as he never lived inside with a family before and doesn't know the rules. But, he is very eager to please and tries so hard to be a good boy. He will learn quickly because he wants to be loved. Ritchie is a slight heart worm positive. He has no symptoms and feels just fine. He is currently being treated and DHS will continue to fund his care even if adopted.
All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.
