After having overcome the initial difficulties with which he arrived at the shelter, our Ricardo has become a magnificent dog. Ricardo was very sick at first. He had a severe infection in his body and his body hurt a lot.

Now our young Ricardo is fit and ready to find his family. He is very open-minded with people and likes to play ball with them, for example. He is generally active and curious and is very good at walking on a leash. He is happy when new people come and is open to everything and everyone. At the shelter he lives in a mixed group of dogs, where he gets along well with both males and females. He also knows how to communicate well with puppies that are overly aggressive by showing his limits in a friendly but determined manner. He also knows how to drive. Although he is a calm dog after being out for a walk, he is often frustrated and bored at the shelter. So he needs a family to keep him busy and possibly take him to dog school. Ricardo is cooperative and docile. He has the best requirements to become a great family dog.

Adoption costs for dogs  : ADULT 180€ / PUPPY 120€ All animals available for adoption have a microchip and passport. They have been tested for common diseases (Leishmania for dogs, FeLV and FIV for cats). Adult animals are fully vaccinated and castrated.

* Until complete adaptation, adult supervision with small children is essential.

** This means we have tested the dog with cats in the shelter and has shown no reactive behaviour, but this does not guarantee 100% compatibility with cats. Therefore, we always advise that cats and dogs are together only under surveillance.
