ABOUT RICKARD

Rickard (ZZ's younger brother), is the Boo son I always hoped for. Not just handsome, Rickard is friendly but focussed, confident and unflappable. He shows great promise as a bed bug detection candidate. Rickard loves searching, retrieving, pointing, swimming, and chasing his sisters.
