That is such a touching story. I'm happy you found each other.

Rico is adorable, as is your "human" baby!!! Who knows why his tail was docked? …With a dog that is not registered, my guess is that it was likely an injury that led to amputation. (unlike a dog like a Rottie or Schnauzer, where their tails are docked for fashion/breed ring purposes) My brother-in-law has a dog that LOOKS like a purebred Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, but she has a stump of a tail. She's a rescue too, rescued as a 6 month old puppy, and already no one knew how/why it had happened.

My brother has a Sheltie, and while walking in the woods one day, Sammy got spooked by a noise, and ran right in front of my brother's feet. In trying to catch his balance and not fall on the dog, my brother stepped down on Sammy's tail, and all the hair and skin pulled off, leaving just exposed bone. All that could be done was to amputate it. So now we call him the honorary "mini-Aussie"!

Whatever happened to Rico, it doesn't affect his cuteness one bit. You and he were lucky to find each other. I'm sure he will be a much different experience than your boxer, but one just as rich and worth while!

Our vet said not to worry, the tail was docked properly at least. We have already realized Ricco is one odd puppy lol! He walks on his back feet like a human. Just does so at random following my older son around. Its so cute!!!

The 1st day he was home he learned his name,where "out" was and even learned "easy" when playing. From there its been sit,stay, inside voice and go get brother {meaning he runs to my older son's room and pounces him} Hes been a real blessing to have.

Just updating the rescue post so every one can see how much Ricco has changed. We also know a breed now. Our fluffy mop has been upgraded to not so fluffy little boy :P A nice trim and bath and he looks good!

Nice pictures. Ricco looks good and like the perfect babysitter. Bet they'll be BFFs in the future.

Lol yep he loves HIS baby. When we brought Quinn home we told Ricco he had a new baby...and Ricco now sticks to him like glue. He wont even take a treat from Quinn unless Mommy tells him ok. hes very gentle too. Im so glad we rescued him.
