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

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

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. show less
