Looking for a best friend companion dog?  Love to explore and take time to enjoy the world all around? Wants a big solid companion to walk through life with you?

Rico is your boy. He is great with all people, great with kids and he wants to be your best friend.

Has a nice easy energy and knows basic obedience although he still chooses whether or not he wants to hear  :)

Rico is a big beautiful boy who appears to have a touch of labrador somewhere in the family tree.

He lives with another labrador but does not have a ton of experience with dogs outside his family. He is curios and wants to meet them so someone with experience who can help him understand how that works will be great.

Rico easily passed many dogs during his evaluation and at a distance is mildly curious or indifferent. Up close he will pull on lead to try and get close. He is easily redirected and so happy to be with people.

Rico loves to be petted , he is happy to lay quietly at your feet or be your walking or hiking companion.

Rico has the kind of easy, solid temperament that would make a really great best friend for someone who needs a companion dog.

We rarely meet GSDs with this easy energy. He is living in Pleasanton.

Is he a lab in disguise :-)
