Update: Rickon has found a forever home in Vancouver. Yay!
Note: Rickon is coming to Vancouver on Nov. 30th, 2021.
Rickon was born after his mom was rescued from an abusive situation. Her owner had cruelly tied a large wire around her stomach by her hind legs. The wire was so tight it cut through her skin and caused deep and painful lacerations. No one would have guessed she was pregnant, but shortly after she gave birth to 9 puppies, 7 of whom survived.
Rickon currently lives in a shelter with other dogs, and has typical puppy qualities of being happy and playful. He is affectionate with people and likes to play with other dogs.
His ideal home is with a family who can continue his socialization with both people and other dogs during these formative years, as well as a household where people are home for the majority of the day to spend with him as he is still young.
It is important to note although Rickon currently is very happy and playful at the shelter, as a young puppy he also has limited experiences in life, so changes could be difficult for him in the beginning. This includes getting used to new people, environments, leash training, and being outside. His adopter should be prepared to deal with these potential challenges and have the patience and understanding to help him get settled.
DHPPL, Canine Influenza, Kennel Cough, Rabies, Corona, Heartworm test, Giardia test, Flea & tick & heartworm prevention are all done.
