Rick is a gorgeous little Maltese of approx. 18 months old, he was picked up straying heavily matted and very scared, unsurprisingly nobody came to claim him and he wasn’t microchipped, despite this being a legal requirement.

Poor little Rick went straight to the vets to have the matted hair shaved off, he screamed when he was looked at and flinched at touch, he was a very scared little lad so I dread to think what kind of a life this poor little guy has had to date!

Rick is terrified of men and will scream if they try to pick him up, once he is being held he is fine to be handed over to men but seems very scared of them.

He has come on really well since being with us, but he is going to need a very calm patient home, adult only who can help him get over his previous trauma.

He is fine with dogs and cats and I think other dogs will help him to settle into a new home.

Once Rick knows you, he loves you and is an absolutely fab little dog, and so handsome!

Rick absolutely adores other dogs, especially ones of a similar size to him, he loves to play ball when out in the secure field and loves to chase and play with the other dogs.

Rick is looking for an adult only home as he is initially timid, so he would not suit a home with children.

He is much more confident with women but does warm to men once he has sussed them out.

Rick travels really well in the car and is always looking for his next adventure! Rick walks well on the lead and is brilliant off lead, but I have only ever allowed this is an enclosed field.

He is nervous of being picked up and will shy away from you, but he loves to come and snuggle with you on the sofa or the bed.

Rick is neutered, microchipped de flead and wormed.
