Find a friend: adopt a pet

Once a week Metro features an animal you can adopt from the ASPCA. This week, say hello to Ritchie!

Hi! My name is Ritchie and I’m a 4-year-old Yorkie mix looking for a new family. I’m very friendly and outgoing, and love to meet new friends to play with me.

People say I’m pretty smart, and I already know how to sit on command. Teaching me new tricks and manners should be pretty easy, especially if you give me some tastes of my favorite treats. When we go out for walks, I’m a good boy and stay right by your side.

I can be energetic, so I’ll need a bit of running and exercise every day to keep me happy. Other dogs can be fun to play with, but sometimes I can get too excited and play a little rough.

I’m the perfect dog for an inexperienced or first-time owner, and should be okay going to a home with children over the age of 6.

Bring him home!

Stop by the ASPCA Adoption Center and give Ritchie a home.

Where: 424 E. 92nd St.
