Hi there! I am Richie, and I am ready to strike it rich! Do you like kisses, smiles, and fun games? Then I am the sweet boy for you! I am a friendly fella who gets along with everyone I meet, including kiddos. I dole out kisses to show my affection, and my favorite fun-time activities include playing with toys and enjoying a rousing game of chase. I get along with other doggies in social settings, but prefer to be the only pet in my home so I can have all your attention and loving. I'm a smartypants, too: I am already potty and crate trained, and quickly learned to sit on command after a short lesson. I am eager to learn even more so my adopters will have to sign me up for training, but my only other requirements for a forever family is people who will shower me with love and enjoy lots of fun time. Not a bad deal, eh? Hurry up and fill out an adoption application: I have a heart of gold and I am ready to open it to you!

If you'd like to adopt this dog, please get started by filling out a complete application (incomplete submissions cannot be sent.) Please note that while we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care as possible, our bios are written from current observations. Though we do our best to share as much information as possible about each dog we care for, we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history, and information pertaining to breed and age are often educated guesses.
