Rico is a male Chihuahua mix who was being held in a cage in a cellar in the dangerous area of East New York. Honorably discharged Navy vet Jon Frank, Jr., an employee of Ballroom Barks! who has served many tours overseas as well as the Middle East, bravely entered the area and negotiated Rico out who was being slated for “Pit Bull” bait. Rico now has a forever home with his new “Daddy” Jon! Rico serves as a sort of mascot for Ballroom Barks! and is shown wearing his custom Tails Tux, made by the amazing Kristina Staykova.
