Hero sniffer dog needs a home in Spain

Rick, an 11-year-old Belgian Malinois, is recently retired following his years of service in the Congo.

He is now looking for a home in Spain where he can retire and enjoy some well-deserved rest.

Rick worked for the Jane Goodall Institute and was responsible for sniffing out endangered animals that were being trafficked in the city of Pointe Noire.

Thanks to his unique set of skills, and those of his colleagues, hundreds of animals have been saved over the years, including monkeys, parrots, turtles, crocodiles and antelopes.

Now, the Heroes de 4 Patas association, set up by the Policia Nacional to help animals who served in any of Spain’s forces, is hoping to help Rick find a home.

Rick is arriving back to Spain at the end of September so hopes to have a home in time for then.
