About Rico

American Bulldog
2 to 5 Years


Rico is a stunning 3 year old American Bulldog, he has come to the centre through no fault of his own. Rico is a big bundle of love and fun, he enjoys being around people and loves nothing more than to try and snuggle up on your lap, no one has told him he's too big! He also enjoys playing with his toys or sleeping!

Type of home needed

Rico is looking for a loving home with Bull breed experience. He is happy to be left for a few hours in the home as long as he has somewhere comfy to snooze! Rico has good basic training and great manners in the home, he even knows the odd fun trick if you have a treat. Rico loves travelling in the car to new exciting places to explore but he also loves his home comforts. He would enjoy a home that is happy to continue his training.

More about me

Rico would like to be the only pet in the home. He could potentially live with teenage children who are used to big bouncy dogs. Multiple visits with the behaviourial team will be required.

How rehoming works

Thank you for your interest in Rico, who is based at Newbury. Please note this is not a reservation on this dog. To start the rehoming process you will need to go to a rehoming centre for a quick chat. Please find information below about what to expect during the rehoming process. We hope to see you soon.

  1. The average time between visiting a Rehoming Centre and taking your new pet home is just eight days. Every circumstance is different but this brief guide lets you know what you will experience when you decide to rehome a dog from us.
  2. The rehoming centre is your gateway to finding your new pet pooch. When you arrive at the centre you will be greeted in reception by a friendly face.
  3. During this first visit we will take a few details from you so we know what you are looking for. You will be able to visit the dogs and we'll advise you on how to find the right dog for your circumstance and that your circumstances will work for the dog too.
  4. We would like you to get to know your chosen dog before you take him home so, if you have any other dogs or family members, you may need to bring them along for a further visit to ensure the whole family is happy with the decision.
  5. The fee for rehoming a dog is £130 (£110 in Ballymena due to extra dog licence fees), but every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered as well as a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar - so we think it's a good deal!
  6. On rehoming your new dog from Dogs Trust you will receive 4 weeks' free insurance from our partner Petplan, this covers your dog for any unexpected illnesses and injuries, for further details and to activate your 4 weeks' free trial visit the Petplan website.
  7. So now you are ready to take your new pal home, just one more step which is a pre-adoption talk. This ensures you are aware of the responsibilities of dog ownership and reminds you that we are always here when you need us!
  8. Get in touch with the centre your dog is located at to arrange a visit.
