Rico is a super happy to be alive 2 yr old boy. He is great with other dogs and loves to play but at the same time can be mellow and laid back. He would love a home where he can shower his people with love and another doggie friend to play with. He is house trained, kennel trained and knows a few commands. He has good house manners and can be trusted on his own. He enjoys easy walks and car rides. Rico’s owner neglected him and when he became sick from starvation and mange he took him to the shelter to be put to sleep. But the staff fell in love with him and did all they could to save his life. As you can see he has recovered and is a beautiful boy. Sadly due to the neglect his kidneys did suffer some damage and he will not reach his golden years, dogs with kidney damage can live 1-4 yrs. Rico is a wonderful, very happy fellow and would love to be part of your life for the time he has left.. Rico is not on any medication but does require a special diet. Can you open up your heart to include this special puppy in your home. His adoption fee is only $250, a small fee to give this wonderful boy a happy home. Please visit our website at to complete an online application.

The brief descriptions we have posted about our dogs are based on our observations and interactions with them since coming to our rescue. We will take our dogs out into public areas to watch their behaviors around strangers and other pets while walking them. We also place them in a daycare facility to ensure that they are sociable with other dogs and if not, which dogs they do not perform well around, such as small dogs or another large breed. When available, we place our dogs in a foster home to observe their house manners and help them to trust people again. If we observe bad behaviors we work with them to correct behaviors such as jumping on furniture or paws on the counters. There will be times that we will not be able to provide the answers to some of your questions – like are they good with children or cats – especially rescued dogs found as strays with little or no background. Even though we spend as much time as possible interacting with all our dogs, and they behave a certain way when with us, German Shepherd Rescue of the Rockies cannot guarantee their future behavior with their new families.
