KENILWORTH, NJ – Meet Rico Kenilworth's TAPinto Pet of the Week!

Rico was born on April 13, 2013. Rico was adopted by the Maté family in May 2013 and quickly made himself a member of the family. He is a Chihuahua Poodle Mix (Chi-Poo), who weighs two pounds. He is a kind, gentle dog that has a love for all, but most importantly his mother. His favorite activities include chasing squirrels and birds out of his yard and acting like the big little boss. He enjoys eating Pup-Peroni treats, playing with Rudolph his stuffed animal, and most importantly an afternoon nap on his mother's lap. He likes car rides, going down the shore, and just having a good time. He is quick to melt your heart and will give you a kiss as soon as you walk in. Today Rico is happy, safe, and well and is now seven years young.
