  Meet Cinna! He is currently living in Florida and has proven to be a wonderful young male dogo!  Cinna is a quick learner and very eager to please, even though sometimes he has typical dogo stubborness at times. We think Cinna is about 2-3 years old but we do know that he is absolutely STUNNING!   His photos may show some wounds but they are all bacterial infections that are fully healing.  Currently he is 96lbs and has another 10+ lbs to gain to be at a healthy weight for his size.  Every day we see improvements with Cinna and his training to learn all the new boundaries to be a good dogo.  He loves people but be ready because he's a kisser and hugger! We know that he is friendly with other female dogs but haven't had the chance to test with males just yet, but we would prefer a no male dog home for Cinna considering his confidence and size. He recently discoverd that he like to swim in the pond and loves to run around and play chase with other female dogs.  He is a flirt with the girls!  Regading kids and cats, we don't have a way to test so we prefer a home with grown ups and possibly older children. Cinna is textbook dogo when it comes to attitude and demeanor so we recommend him going to an experienced dog home, preferrable one who has dogo or similar experience to keep him on the right track. We don't know how he is in a home and he will most likely need to be house trained, but we do think he will train very well. He is going to make a wonderful companion to whomever is chosen to be his new parent. Cinna is great in the car and clearly enjoys going places and seeing what is going on.  He truly is simply wonderful! Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them never ends!  Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires you set! Dogos are loving, kind and gentle but don't mistake that for weakness because they are equally powerful and intense as well! Everyone in the home must be on board with having a dogo and play a major role in their daily routines and training. Yes it is work, but the rewards are ten-fold! Lazy homes don't work for dogos as they need stimulation, exercise, and lots of attention too during their younger years.  Our goal in rescue is to be as transparent as we can about each and every dog plus make sure new families really understand the needs of a dogo!   show less

Meet Effie!! She is a young female dogo currently in Florida with lots of energy and kisses to give. Effie is about 3-4 years old and appears to have possibly been a mama dog in the past. Mamas always tend to steal our hearts as they are extra loving and nurturing! She is learning commands quickly and eager to please as she is learning new boundaries.  Effie loves to run around in the yard with Prim and we have not introduced her to other dogs just yet. She is a confident girl so a home with a friendly dog would be good for her.  We don't know how she is with kids or cats so we prefer a home with grown ups and possibly older children.  Effie is a really good girl and very textbook female dogo in terms of being loving, happy, strong, and confident!  She does well in the car and was good at the vet too! We do not know if she is house trained but certain that she will learn quick. Effie does very well in a kennel and on a leash from what we have seen so far.  Effie had several skin infections that may be seen in some of her pictures but she is recovering and doing well.  She does have a scar on her head that we are not sure of, possibly an old skin infection that was not treated in time. However, she really is just perfect! Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them never ends!  Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires you set!

Now located on the east coast, Lola is a 7 year old spayed female rescued from a shelter in Southern California.  Her owner surrendered her because they were moving out of state and couldn't take her with them.  They reported that Lola enjoyed being outside in their yard, was crate trained at night inside the house, enjoyed baths, and was good with kids.   While at the shelter, Lola won the hearts of all the volunteers and dog walkers! They reported that she is very friendly, affectionate, mellow and well-behaved.  She loves to be cuddled and scratched, and will roll over for belly rubs.  Lola has some basic obedience training, including leash walking, and does well in the car.  She loves walks and playing and has a medium energy level.  We are continuing to learn more about Lola as she is currently in her foster home. She needs training, but is food and treat motivated and willing to learn. She loves all people she meets, but is not too fond of other dogs.  She has never been around cats, but has a strong prey drive, so we think she should be the only pet in the home :)  Lola is a sweetheart that is looking for someone that can give her a lot of love and doesn't mind kisses!  This girl also enjoys posing for photo shoots! She is fantastic in the car and is willing to travel for the perfect home! show less

  Meet Oliver! Sticking with this years book theme, he has been named after Oliver Twist; a young, good-hearted, and kind--but mistreated--orphan from a Charles Dickens novel. He is a friendly and quiet 2 year old boy from Florida who recently came into the rescue when we saved him with just hours of notice from being put down! We are happy that Oliver is safe now, will no longer be mistreated, and we can help him find his forever home! Oliver was living outside, but seems to be house trained. He spent most of his time following his owner around all day while she worked outside, and got used to being near his people all day. His current fosters report that he is very well mannered, enjoys laying by their feet, and chewing on his antler. Oliver walks nicely on a leash and responds well to corrections. Although very sweet, he can be a bit stubborn and needs someone who can work with him on learning basic commands. Oliver is sensitive, and will benefit from being given time to adjust to new things. He is used to living around other dogs, but will need slow introductions. We think he will do ok with another female dog. The perfect home for him would be with someone that is home a lot and has time and attention to give him. Oliver is really mellow, but can be a howler! We've also heard that he likes relaxing to both classical and reggae music! show less

Prince is a happy and healthy big boy currently living in Baltimore.  He loves everyone he meets and so far he has shown no ill behaviors to other dogs. Prince really loves attention and has great behavior in the home. He is house trained and doing well with crate training too! We are still learning about Prince and will update as we get to know him better!  We do know that his former owner really did love him but was no longer able to care for Prince and had to give him up. Thankfully the rescue had space to take him in at the time and he is now in with a foster and looking for a new family! Currently his foster is putting in a lot of effort towards his training and has made a lot of progress with him.  He needs a strong handler but one that also enjoys to give a lot of love and cuddles too!  He is a confident boy but does not like thunderstorms despite his tough guy look!   Prince is a very special boy and he needs an experienced owner that is willing to work with him on a regular basis. The saying "a tired Dogo is a good Dogo" was written specifically for Prince! Prince needs to be reminded about boundaries and kept on a routine, as well as be kept busy. We would prefer someone with breed experience, but would consider other similar power breeds. Prince loves his training sessions and even enjoys scent tracking work once a week with his foster!  show less

Regan is a 1.5 year old female Dogo who is doing wonderful in her foster home! Here is her BIO written by her foster sibling, the cat she adores! Help!  I'm a 16 year old cat and my Mom has a foster Dogo here that thinks I'm her BFF.  I'm 8 pounds.  Regan is 100 pounds.  The Pony comes bounding into the living room, and gives me a huge play bow.  She gooses me with her nose.  Such indignities!     Do me a huge favor, and make this dog come to your house.  Regan loves playing with all the dog toys, cat toys too.  Totally unacceptable!  I sit in the window and watch her play in the yard.  Leaping and bounding, racing and chasing, weird noises, way too much activity for me.    She'll be 2 soon.  Life for Regan hasn't been fun or easy, not much stability in her earlier life, and not much love either.  She needs a home with other rowdy dogs so she can burn off some energy.  Because of an unstable home life, some things in life induce panic.  Trip to the vet's office?  Sheer panic.  You leaving the house?  Separation Anxiety rears its ugly head.  She was prescribed Prozac, and that has been amazing.  I can now take my morning nap without interruption.   Still working on her acceptance of strangers.  If she is with other dogs, she is not afraid.  By herself?  Some people are very scary.  Treats and sort of ignoring her seems to help convince her otherwise.   Christmas is fast approaching, and so is my 17th birthday.  Adopting Regan would be a wonderful present for me.  Adopt her so she can play bow and goose your cat. 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
