Ritchie is a 7 year old Fiest mix who is looking for a new home. He weighs 28 pounds, and has a brindle coat of black and gold with white markings. Ritchie is a very calm, quiet, and doesn't’t do much barking in the kennel. He is affectionate and gentle, and loves to sit in your lap and be petted and played with. He walks calmly on a leash, and would make a great companion, and a great family dog. Ritchie also seems to like other dogs. He is heartworm positive, so he will need further veterinary treatment for that condition after his adoption, as well as monthly heartworm preventative for the rest of his life. If you are interested in adopting Richie call the Guilford County Animal Shelter at 336-641-3404.
