Sabers selling jerseys for Rick, the team dog


BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) – The highlight of the Buffalo Sabers season so far is Rick, the team’s new dog – and you can now pick up his jersey, just in time for the holidays.

The team released “Rick” jerseys with a paw print on the back, available at the Sabers store in youth and adult sizes. A link to buy online is not yet available.

We are told that these jerseys are currently sold only in human cut, but the team intends to sell Rick cut jerseys for dogs in the future.

Rick is a service dog in training who is housed at the Niagara County Correctional Facility. At the end of the season, he will be paired with a veteran on the service dog waiting list.

Rick is a nine month old Newfoundlander rescued by the Niagara County SPCA and named after legendary broadcaster Rick Jeanneret.

We can now see the outfits of the couples: A person wearing a “Rick” jersey sitting next to a person wearing a “Jeanneret” jersey sold on the One Buffalo site which has a microphone instead of a number.
