Asher is a fun and loving 3 year old male Dogo Argentino. He is almost competely deaf (only hears high pitch sounds). He does know some hand signal commands. Asher has a lot of energy and would do well with a female dog that has the same energy level. He loves a good romp around the yard and his favorite past time is sunbathing and playing frisbee. He's not a big fan of car rides as he does get a little sick but anti nausea medicine helps tremendously. He should go to a home with no small children since he is a big boy and doesn't realize his size. Asher is located in Pensecola FL.

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!

Buddy is affectionate and well behaved boy. He is very smart and although he doesn’t like to play fetch (he loves to chase), he does enjoy a game of tug-of-war and showcasing his tricks (sit, stay, paw, lay down, catch). He is not allowed on furniture but that doesn’t stop him from trying to sit on your lap. He loves to cuddle, has never had an accident in the house and prefers to do his business in the woods. He will only bark at you if he really needs to go out. Buddy Loves to play and nap (he snores loudly). He has a favorite blanket that he carries around like Linus. He loves the sunshine and being outside. He’s happiest when he is with all of his people. He’s good with older children and good with bigger dogs with proper introduction. He is not good with cats or small dogs. Buddy is located in Williamsburg VA. Transport can be arrange if you are not local.

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 (10+). 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!

Fancy has got to be one of the sweetest Dogos we've ever rescued! I know we always say our dogs are sweet but she takes it to the next level! She craves affection and quality time with her people more than anything. She would be perfect for a low to medium active home and doesn't really need a big yard. Her biggest need is hanging out with her person. Fancy is a simple girl with excellent manners who loves to give kisses! We were lucky enough to save Fancy girl from a Florida shelter where she got picked up as a stray. Makes no sense to us how anyone could give her up, but we are happy that she's forever a DC Dogos girl! Fancy is ready for an Adopter or a Foster-to-Adopt home where she can get all the love and attention she deserves. She is currently in Tampa, FL but willing to relocate to the perfect home!

Felix is a young male who we just rescued from a San Francisco, CA shelter. He is currently living with his foster family in Southern California, and we are learning more about him. We think Felix is around one year old. He has lots of energy and loves playing with toys! He is goofy and loveable! Felix is looking for a home that is patient, loving, and willing to help him learn manners and basic training. He can be a little skiddish at first with strangers (especially men) and needs slow introductions to warm up to you. His new family should not have cats, but he may be ok with a female dog if the family is experienced and willing to separate and do slow and propper introductions.

Freddie was found as a stray in the Houston area of Texas. He is very defeated, emaciated, and currently ill due to malnourishment and proper care. Freddie will receive all necessary medical care to bring him back to good health! We do not know much about him except that he is very receptive to being rescued and the TLC he receives from his foster family! Once we know more about him we will surely update but for now we are focusing on his health. If you are interested in adopting Freddie or possibly doing a Foster-to-Adopt please reach out to us and fill out a foster application for him. Thank you!

Currently fostered in south/central Florida while he healing from his Entropion surgery. Hunter is learning new things every day and we are working on his manners. He likes to steal pizza and play with 5 gallon water jugs so he really is a giant 120lb puppy! He is learning the boundaries needed to be the perfect dog and we are impressed with how well he is doing so far. We are still learning about Hunter to see what he likes and doesn't like so for now his adoption applications are on hold. He also has to fully heal from eye surgery over the next month as long as things go well. We have not had him around other dogs yet but he hasn't shown any reaction towards the ones he sees on walks. He even behaved while meeting a horse so we have a good feeling about being able to socialize him. Stay tuned for updates on Hunter!

We saved Jewel (formerly Harper) from a Houston shelter within hours of her euthansia deadline. She is heartworm positive, has demodex, and suffers from an old gunshot wound to her right front ankle. We think she is about 4 years old, possibly younger and has had a very difficult and rough life so far but it will never be that way again. She is timid and shy to humam touch but we know she will recover over time and come out of her shell as she learns to trust us! Stay tuned for updates and we expect the earliest she would be available for adoption is early June.

King is a new intake. We will update his profile once we learn more about him. King is 1-2 years old; he has lived with children and small dogs but we prefer he go to a foster home that has no small kids and is able to separate dogs until we can get a better assessment on him.

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!

Lightning is a happy go lucky kind of guy! He loves his toys, running in the back yard (AKA chasing that pesky bunny!!) and snuggling up next to his human at the end of a long day. Lightning would do good with a female dog with a similar type personality, playful with enough energy to keep up with this crazy boy! He'd also do fine as an only dog, as long as his humans want to play some times!! We have not tested Lightning with males, so at this time we'd prefer a home with no other male dogs. Considering chasing that bunny has become one of the highlight's of Lightning's day - to be on the safe side we are going to say no cats. Lightning likes to go on adventures, so an active home would be wonderful! Preferably with no young kids, Lightning can be a wild man and although he wouldn't mean to, might accidentally knock a little over. If you want your next dog to be a lover, Lightning is the dog for you! (:

These total gem is living in her foster home of South Carolina and she is just an amazing dog! She has been through so much but somehow still loves people with all her heart! Lila has fully recoverd from an emergency c section & mastitis. Lila is also heartworm positive, and will need to go through treatment very soon now that we know the details of her back leg. She is sever hip issues, possibly from a prior accident. She will need hip replacement but the vet wants to address her Heartworm Disease first. The perfect loving home for sweet Lila with either no other dogs or the ability to separate, because right now Lila isn't feeling great and is NOT a fan of other furry friends. Boy, does she love her humans though!! This happy, smiley, grateful girl is currently located in South Carolina with temp foster parents who adore her so much! She is not ready for an Adoption home yet but we are considering foster or foster to adopt homes for Lila if there are any where she can be the center of attention!

Nahla is currently in Tampa, FL and in training with her foster-to-adopt home! She is a fun party girl that also has a lot of affection to give everyone she meets. This girl is extremely athletic and never seems to burn off all the energy she has stored. She is a shelter survivor who came to us with skin issues but with proper care she is looking fabulous and feeling great! We believe Nahla is just shy of 2 years old and although she is a party girl, she is also eager to learn. She is definitely a work in progress and will be an outstanding do once she learns all the proper manners. She is always happy and just loves life to the fullest!

Olivia is a new intake. She was found as a stray in New Orleans a few weeks ago before the hurricane. Lost and found posters were posted and no one came for her so she has found herself at the shelter and needs a foster now. What we know so far is that she is a very sweet and obedient girl. She walks well on the leash and knows basic commands. She loves everyone she meets. Good with other dogs, no cats. No small kids since we are unsure about her history with them. She is currently located in New Orleans. Transport can be arranged for approved fosters.

RIO IS MISSING FROM THE SAN ANTONIO, TX AREA. We decided to keep his profile up to help spread the word. We love all of our rescues and have put forth a lot of time and money in searching for him and will continue to do so until he is back with the rescue. Please keep an eye out for him on social media and locally if your in the San Antonio area. Rio is looking for someone that will like to talk him on long walks so he can enjoy the fresh air and daydream about actually catching one of the squirrels that cross his path. He is a strong but obedient when directed by his assertive handler. Just like all male dogos, Rio loves to test his boundaries and needs to be reminded of his place in your pack! He understands commands and responds well to training and corrections. He may look tough on the outside but he is a big mush when it comes to giving some love! He also loves chews and squeaky toys! But his favorite item in the world is a security blanket that he takes everywhere, even when he goes outside to do a little sunbathing! Rio found himself a stray in Puerto Rico after Hurrican Maria and recently traveled to Texas with the family that helped him. He is a 3 yo friendly neutered healthy Dogo Argentino that loves the older children (10+) in his life. He wants a home where he can run and play with his humans and other non-dominant dogs. Rio says he wants a family that will give him lots of lovins'! If you want a shadow to follow you around, Rio says he loves doing that! Rio is described to be friendly, active, playful, smart, and affectionate by his current humans. Right now he is spoiled with a tasty raw diet that is making a big difference in his recovery after being a stray with no food after the hurricane. His first home when he got to Texas had an intact male Cane Corso and the two didn't seem to want to share the same territory. Rio arrived to the States in late February and now needs a home that better suits him. He is dog friendly but needs a home without another alpha dog. He sounds to be textbook Dogo in regards to his traits, personality, and handsome good looks! Rio is housetrained, crate trained, not a digger, not a fence jumper, good with older kids (no toddlers), and good with meeting new people too! He is very well behaved and eager to learn and please his humans! He is currently located near Houston, TX but willing to relocate. Tranpsort can be arranged for the perfect home! Rio is a member of the DC Dogos Inc family and you can learn more about us and him at www.dcdogos.org.
