Adopt Me! Ricky Is the Dog People Dream Of Owning

Originally posted 10/10/2014 12:00 PM

It's Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month and we'll be introducing you to extraordinary canines who need homes throughout October. Today, meet Ricky, a 10-month-old Chihuahua/Dachshund mix from the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

This adorable pup is the unofficial chairman of the center's welcome committee. A staff favorite, Ricky sits in the laps of every volunteer and visitor, and befriends every new canine roommate with affection or a tail wag.

Happy, playful and cuddly are some of the best ways to describe Ricky – so why hasn't he found his forever yet? Nobody knows.

"This is one of those question marks we see from time to time," says adoption services manager Adele Murillo. "Every now and again we'll get a wonderful dog who doesn't whine or bark for attention but just kind of waits his turn. It's almost as though his sweet personality gets him overlooked. He's really a love and he's going to make someone a very happy adopter."

But that is what Greg Zubiak came across on Friday while hunting moose in the woods.

Zubiak told the CBC he found the animals huddled together in the cold weather with no help in sight. The hunter quickly stripped off his sweaters and bundled up the puppies before putting them in his truck and driving to Battleford's Humane Society.
