This big ol' puppy is RICKY, and he is our Fursday Pet of the Week. This super happy, energetic fella is up for adoption at It Takes a Village Canine Shelter!

RICKY is a 2-year-old pit mixture (we think maybe some American bulldog too). He is a big, strong kid that loves to play. He's pretty physical and doesn't realize how big he is, so he's probably not the best fit for small children. He needs a home and owner that can handle his size and accommodate his energy level. We always recommend you stop by It Takes a Village on Stockwell Road and visit the doggies there to see if they'd be a good fit for your home.

And don't forget that even if you can't adopt right now, fostering a dog is always a great option and is something ITV needs help with.
