Ava is currently being fostered in Northern Ohio and this could potentially be an adoption home. If not, she will be available after November 1st! Ava came to us out of Miami where she showed up with her mama, Reese, at a home looking for help.  Both of them have been very grateful after being dumped in that rural area left to survive on their own.  They even took a ride via private jet to Tampa and loved every second of the First Class treatment thanks to Pilots N Paws!  Ava is maybe 1 year old and takes awhile to warm up to people as we believe she just didn't get much human interaction in her life. She is learning how to trust people and after 10 days she finally showered her foster mom with kisses!  She loves playing with other dogs, especially a little female chihauha mix! Ava is very athletic and watching her run and jump is an amazing site to see. She is a kennel trained but doubt she is house trained although she will pick that up quickly as she likes to keep a clean kennel space.  She is very treat driven so training her is actually a lot of fun.  Ava needs an active home and one that has a dog with her high energy level to play with.  Other dogs have really helped build her confidence around people and we can see that it is important to her to have a playful dog friend.  She has not been around cats, other animals or kids so we prefer a home without small children. We think Ava is going to be a fun addition to a new home and we have enjoyed seeing her personality come out over the weeks she has been with us! show less

Echo is a giant 3 year old puppy who is loves to explore and play!   He is new to the rescue and we will learn more about him over the next few weeks.  We do know he is friendly with other dogs, both males and females and also good with older kids (16+).  Echo came from a family who had circumstances change and after they boarded him for a couple months they reached out to us and we were able to help.  He has a loving past and was also trained so his new foster will polish up on that training! Stay tuned for updates on Echo! He's young and full of playful energy that enjoys other dogs and going on walks. He's really enjoys training and catches on very quick. He probably would love going to training classes such as scent training, weight pull, agility, etc. Echo would do best with someone that is active and will be able to spend quality time with him. An adult home without kids would be perfect for him He needs a place to call home since he spent several months in boarding before we took him in!! In his current foster home located in Venice, FL he likes to play with his 2 year old dogo foster sister and they really have a lot of fun together!  He really enjoys having other dogs around so a home with other pets would be great. ECHO'S BACKSTORY: He comes from a loving family who was no longer to keep him due to housing issues. With them he did get professional training and was loved very much. They had to put him in boarding for several months and finally DC Dogos was able to bring him into the rescue.  show less

Lance is currently in Tampa, FL and currently in training with foster-to-adopt home.  For those who have been following him you will be happy to know he successfully went through heartworm treatment and is doing wonderful! He is showing to be all spunk and super healthy just like other dogos his age!! Lance, oftern called Sir Lancelot, came to us through a shelter in Miami where he was found in horrible condition and heartworm positive.  Despite how terrible he must feel, he is truly amazing! His spirt is adorable and he gives kisses to strangers.  He reacts happily to other dogs and is an all around gem. Right now he is getting some serious TLC to fatten him up and repair his skin that was suffering from allergies and bacterial infections along with hair loss. His heartworm positive status is in the early stages and we know he will make a wonderful recovery soon! This sweetheart loves to go on walks and is a good boy on leash.  He does get a little excited sometimes and really wants to play like a pup! Right now we have to keep him low active due to his recent neuter and HW status. Lance is such a good boy on car rides and likes to check out his surroundings. At the farm he has shown no interest in the chickens and he likes to hang out and play with other friendly dogs. Lance has a lot of potention to be a very well rounded and social male dogo and will need a family that will appreciate him and continue his training and social life! show less
