Little Ritchie came in as a stray in August of 2018. This poor 6.5 year old boy was found with wounds on top his head and thankfully medical took care of him as soon as possible. Little Ritchie was not setting well in the kennel and our behavior team has worked on him throughout his stay here. Little Ritchie is looking for an experienced adopter that is going to continue giving him structure and work on his issues; guarding and sensitivity to handling.

Little Ritchie takes times to warm up to new strangers but with time, boy oh boy, we consider him to be a Velcro dog once he bonds to you. Little Ritchie just wants a yard to play in, with possibly another energetic playful dog. Let’s not have Little Ritchie wait one more day for his forever home.
