Ricky Nelson is a yellow lab whose coat is a very light yellow.
Ricky Nelson is a very lovable, loving, energetic dog, who is quite puppyish. He is such a quick learner! He now knows No, Down, Sit, Leave it . . . and Come (well, when he feels like it!). Ricky loves playing with my golden retriever mix--especially tug-of-war, fetch, and keep away. Adorably, he plays hide-and-seek by putting a blanket over himself and then taking it off! (Check him out in one of the photos below!) Ricky is housetrained and we're working on crate training. He is a wonderful couch cuddler. He loves running around in a fenced yard, and we feel his adopter's home would need to have that.
Ricky Nelson is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative. He is on anxiety meds, but he has made enormous progress.
Ricky Nelson was rescued from a situation of neglect.
