Nico (In Memorium)

19XX – 2019

Nico the office dog was rescued from a Trumbull shelter by Joe Rucci and his son Ted. A mix of black lab, pit bull and shar-pei, he spent many years greeting our clients and guests. His areas of expertise was providing a soft shoulder to pet during a crisis, strong collaboration in snacks eaten during working hours, and championship sleeping in all sunny spots in the office. He will be deeply missed by all of the Rucci team, clients and guests.
