About Rico

This BIG 92lb, just over one year old, hunk of a dobie will steal your heart over and over again. He loves people and animals and sometimes loves them a little too much and can definitely be over bearing to older pets.

Rico doesn’t have a mean bone in his entire body this fella has definitely been through a hefty ordeal with his knee surgery but had made a phenomenal recovery. Due to Rico’s injury though he would do best placed with older/ teenage kids because as he gets older his knee may make him grumpy and tender to the touch.

Rico will need to stay on a grain free diet and he will require supplements daily to aid in he longevity of his leg.

Rico loves to go for walks and definitely has all his puppy energy still.

Rico would love to be your lifetime car riding buddy. 

This Is My Story

Rico injured his leg and his owners could not afford the surgery and aftercare. They surrendered him to DAR&E so that he could get the medical care he needed.
