RICCO HAS FOUND HIS FOREVER FOSTER AND NEEDS SPONORSHIP TO COVER HIS MEDICAL EXPENSES!! Hello my friends. My name is Ricco and I'm one special tiny man.  My history is a bit sparse and I'll tell you what I know.  I came from a family who decided that after having a human baby, they no longer had time for me.  I'm about 3 years old and I like hanging and sleeping with my good friend Sweatpea.  I arrived at All Mutts Matter two weeks ago and I was very skinny, scared, nervous and having some vision problems.  I was taken to the vet and the good doctor gave my foster mom some eye drops for my eyes and I think they are really helping me see a bit better.  I've put on some weight and I'm much more confident and happier now that I've settled in with my foster siblings and my girl Sweetpea.  I like to go outside in the sunshine, I'm crate and house trained, I'm eating good, I tested negative for heartworms, I'm neutered and microchipped.  I'm working on walking on a leash and I love to snuggle.  If I sound like the type of guy you want to hang out with, please fill out an adoption application on line at and the form is located under the "Adoption Info' tab on the left.  Thanks so much for checking me out and I hope to hear from you soon.  Hugz, Ricco.

Application Process:

1. The application will be processed, evaluated and we will contact the vet and personal references;
2.  All other applications that have been submitted on me will also be processed (best suited applicant is chosen, not first come first serve);
3. Schedule a home visit; and
4. Adoption finalized when the best-fitting home is found. If you have young children or other pets and everyone gets along, we will leave the new dog at your home and do a foster to adopt for about a two-week trial period.  If all is going well after the trial period, the adoption will then be finalized.
