About me

Hi there! My name is Rico and I am a 1 year old Shih Tzu. I came to the centre as my owners had a change in circumstance, which meant that they could no longer care for me. I am a happy, friendly little boy who can sometimes be a little shy to begin with but once I get to know you I love to cuddle. I like to go on walks and playing with my teddies, I am a well-mannered young man but still have a few things to learn so I would like to go to reward based training classes with my new owners. My ideal home would be with adults or families who have children age 12 and over. I could possibly live with another dog if we got on well at the centre but I would like a home without cats.
