Ricky is a 6 year old, 50 lb Beagle/Basset Hound mix. Ricky qualifies for our "Seniors for Seniors" adoption fee discount of $100! He is a handsome boy with a sweet, loving temperament. He gets along great with women & kids, but he can be afraid of some men. The man in the house will need to take an active role in feeding, petting and walking Ricky in order to build up trust, and be willing to be patient with him. Ricky loves to have his tummy scratched. He will also try to crawl up in your lap for some cuddle time. Yes, even at 50 lbs, Ricky thinks he is a lap dog! Ricky needs to lose a few of those 50 lbs, so he would benefit from a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise. Ricky walks well on a leash, so walking is a good option for him, and he really enjoys his walks. Of course, he keeps his "hound" nose to the ground most of the time, sniffing out anything & everything of interest. Ricky isn't a fan of being crated or left alone for long, so he needs a home where his people are with him most of the time. He gets along fine with other dogs, but could easily be an only dog too. Ricky is an awesome dog in search of just the right home!
