All about Rico

Rico is a 3 years, 1 month old male German Shepherd/Siberian Husky who weighs 31 pounds.

Age: 3 years
Weight: 31.00 kg (68.3 lbs)

A little bit about me:
- cats okay; introductions should be slow and controlled
- Unknown history with small animals; history of high prey drive on walks
- kids okay; children old enough to respect body language recommended
- Dogs okay pending successful introduction
- history of separation stress

Hi there! My name is Rico and I'm looking for my furever home. I'm a very active and high energy boy who loves to vocalize all of my opinions and worries with the world. I've lived with cats, children AND another dog before, which means I may get along with yours as long as we are introduced slowly and under proper supervision. I do tend to have a bit of a prey drive, though, so small animals may be a bit of a risk. I've also shown some signs of having separation anxiety, so we would definitely need to work on this with lots of time, love and patience. I love walks so much that I underestimate just how strong I can pull, but with positive reinforcement and proper walking gear (like a harness), I could be the best walker ever! I may be nervous when first meeting you, but I promise that once I warm up to you, I'm the loveliest and sweetest boy you could ever ask for. I know I have some things to work on, but I would love nothing more than to have you by my side as I learn! Are you up to it? I'll be waiting right here for you!
