Adoption Pending Richie, STAR # 1310
Below is the bio was written by Richie and his foster dad. Richie is a nice medium energy boy.
“Let me introduce myself, My name is Richie. I came to STAR from the state of Louisiana where I was found living in a shed and begging for my supper. I had heart worms and a bad wound on my neck. I sailed through my heart worm treatment and my wound is all healed up. I feel better than ever and I am ready to begin the next chapter of my life.
I am a black tri male Aussie, that weighs about 53 lbs and am approx. 2 years old.. I’ve been staying with the nicest pack of foster brothers & sisters. Also two indoor cats. I like to lay next to my foster dad and get petted. He says I am an “easy keeper” I have never had anyone care about me before and am eager to learn new things. I have excellent house manners , am crate trained and walk really well on leash. I’m neutered, current on all my vaccinations and am microchipped. If you are looking a big boy with so much love to give. I might be the Aussie for you.”
