StubbyDog’s Rescue Dog of the Week is sponsored by Zobo Pet Products, who will be giving away a free collar for every dog adopted through this program.

Where do I even begin when it comes time to Ricky? Ricky is the biggest baby you could ever meet. He is located in Lindenwold, NJ, at the Animal Adoption Center where all staff and volunteers have fell in love with him. His photo should be next to the definition of a “lap dog” in the dictionary. Ricky’s big, brown eyes are so deep, filled with history, understanding, hope, and love. He is about 7 years young, house trained, and has a playful and loving heart. Ricky is up-to-date on all shots and neutered. He’s a brindle pit bull mix and a total lover. His favorite daily activities include belly rubs, belly rubs, and did I mention belly rubs?

Ricky has been at the shelter WELL over a year. His teddy-bear demeanor has somehow been overlooked, but he still carries a signature love appeal about him. He doesn’t jump or bark at the cage to get attention when a potential adopter walks by, so maybe that’s why Ricky still hasn’t found his forever home. Earlier this summer, he was briefly adopted into a new home, but returned when the adopters were unable to fulfill responsibilities through no fault of their own.

This ladies’ man melts hearts; so giving him extra love is a necessity! His absence from the shelter has given him a taste of family life, and he is eager to become a part of yours. He LOVES every person he meets, as well as kids and cats, but would do best in a home without other dogs (which is one of the reasons I haven’t already taken him home with me!)

Ricky deserves to live out the rest of his life on a sofa, with lots of belly rubs, walks, and most importantly, love. He will be nothing but a loyal companion and best friend. Every dog is special, but Ricky has something extra. He’s comforting, lovable, and appreciative of every pat, treat, and kiss he gets. Please consider giving Ricky a chance. There’s someone out there who would be just perfect for him, and it could be you! Being an adult dog, he’s not high maintenance- just a big lug who loves getting his belly scratched and laying on the couch to watch television.

As you can see, Ricky’s so great about being dressed up for his photo shoots! Any dog that can wear all of these scarves and hats MUST be something special! If you are interested or have any inquiries, please feel free to contact marissaionno@comcast.net . Also, you can follow Ricky on Facebook. Ricky is available through Animal Adoption Center in Lindenwold, NJ.
