Happy May everyone! Today I'm taking a break from vegan food to share a special doggie post. Y'all know by now that I'm a dog lover. There's Scout, of course, plus I get to have fun with all sorts of other dogs by volunteering at the Humane Society of Missouri. Remember Rosetta and Spanky? They both found families after spending some time at the shelter.
One of our volunteers wrote a special poster about Ricky, who is at the Macklind location of the Humane Society of Missouri. Here's some info about our boy:
My name is Ricky and I am a gorgeous black Labrador Retriever/Pit mix. I have been waiting patiently at the shelter for a long time and I would love to find my forever home. I am a little over 1 year old so I still have some puppy energy, but I am also a good listener and I like to please people. I love to go for walks, and I love to sit with someone and cuddle and give kisses. I’m very sweet and I love everyone, but because of my size and energy level, it would be better for me to go home with older children. I sit on command and could learn a lot more. I much prefer to potty outside rather than mess up my kennel. Ask the volunteers how great I am! Please give me a chance. I just want someone to love me! If you are looking for a new best friend or a great family dog, come and meet me at the HSMO-Macklind. I would love nothing more than to finally go home!!!
I'll add that Ricky is a really smart guy too, and full of personality. During our Shelter Dog Training class, Ricky figured out which one of us had the tastiest treats. He'd do what any one of us asked, but he'd then look to the person with the tastiest treats because he wanted his reward from her! So adorable; he had all of us cracking up. If you know of someone who is interested in adopting and think that Ricky might be a good fit, encourage them to come visit Ricky at the Humane Society of Missouri on Macklind. He is located in the Female Wing (I know, ignore the gender part, the dogs are assigned to both wings regardless) and his identification number is A453865. Check out the directions and business hours for the Macklind location here.
Thanks for spreading the word about Ricky, an athletic, smart, funny, great-looking boy.
