Ricochet is a sweet boy looking for his forever home to give him extra love and attention!
Foster Home Feedback
6/18/2022 Foster Feedback: It has been over a month and a half since Ricochet joined our family and he has settled in so nicely. It feels like he has grown in my home and is ready for his forever family.
This boy is such a chill, good boy and a great guard dog. He woke me up in the middle of the night to alert me of a prowler in the backyard. He chased the prowler away from our yard and out of the neighborhood. He loves being outside sunning himself or just watching the people and traffic go by and playing with his furry foster brother. He also loves nothing more than to lay on the couch or in bed and snuggle with his human. He can go from playing in the backyard to chilling on the couch; the perfect combination for a companion.
Ricochet is completely potty trained and does alert us when he must go out. He is still trying to learn the sit command but will instead lay down, so that still needs some work, but he does know the go lay down command. He walks nicely on a leash until something catches his attention then he does pull, so he does need work on that as well. He loves going for car rides and does well.
Ricochet has been around older, respectful children and does great. He loves people and attention. However, when he gets to play in the backyard with his furry siblings, he forgets to look where he is going and will plow into people, therefore, I would recommend a home with older considerate kids.
Thinking of adding a well-behaved dog to your family? Here is why Ricochet is the one for you. Ricochet loves to play with his toys and getting treats! He has a cute little snore when snuggling with you. He can be left home alone to free roam. Lastly, when you get home from work or from outside, he is excited to see you, his tail is wagging and his butt is wiggling a hundred miles an hour; he will love you more than treats. Ricochet would be the perfect addition to your home!
5/16/2022 Foster Feedback: Ricochet came to the rescue as an owner surrender, and he was hesitant around people. His life before the rescue was not the best, but today he is living it to the fullest. When he first came into my home, he was timid around my dogs, husband, and me and had accidents inside. We took him to the Vet due to vomiting and diarrhea, where it was discovered he was just overwhelmed with the change in his situation. It did not take him long to learn to trust us and make himself right at home.
It has been five days since being neutered, and he is no longer having accidents in the house; he will ask to go outside. He will lie on the end table, the bed, or your lap and stare at you, signifying that he needs to go outside. If he has to go during the night, he will sit next to the bed and nudge or paw at you to wake you up. He has a small bladder, so he does go outside often. To annoy me, I sometimes think he holds some in to go back outside ten minutes after coming back in. He likes to sleep on the floor next to the bed and outside wall where it is cooler or up against the outside door. Once in a while, he will sleep in bed with me and my pups but ultimately ends up on the floor. He is not real fond of the kennel, he does lay in it periodically, but he is not kennel trained. He has full roam of the house, and we have had no problems with him.
He lives in a house with two crabby, cranky not so old dogs, my husband and myself. Ricochet likes to play outside, and sometimes my boys do not want to be bothered with kid's stuff and would rather sun on the deck, and people watch. He likes to run up and down and play through the fence with Plankton, our neighbor dog, and a current 4 Luv resident. He loves Plankton and kids so much that he tries to jump over the fence to play with them, so he needs to be watched outside.
I am trying to teach him to sit, stay, and down, but my two class clowns are a distraction for him, and he is not picking it up as he should. He loves food and treats and is motivated, so he should pick up quickly. He has taught himself a trick; when he wants a treat, he will bring me the treat jar from the cart in the kitchen, whether in the day or middle of the night.
He rides well in the car; he will sit in the passenger seat or lay his head on the consul and watch you drive. He does not like going to the Vet, so it will take a bit of bribing and maybe some carrying him to get him inside the building.
Overall he is just sweet, handsome, and a lovable blockhead who loves his humans and loves nothing better than to be cuddled next to them on the couch or their feet. He has a perfect temperament; he can go outside and run around the yard and play, then come inside and chill.
