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

Sid is just an 8 month old pup currently located with temp foster in Tampa, FL!    He is an energetic boy who loves to play and run around with his friends. Sid is learning the basic commands and would need someone to continue this training because he really wants to be a good boy for his person.  He has a look of love in his eyes everytime you give him attention, he LOVES getting attention.  Enjoys playing but also some good back and side rubs are great too.  He needs an active home and prefers one where he has other dogs to play with. Sid is friendly towards all the other dogs and seems like he is going to socialize very well with continued training and exposure. He is at such a good age right now to learn and train so we want his new home to take advantage of that for sure. He learned how to sit and in the process of learning how to wait for his food and making gains with that.  We are also working on not jumping on people and see improvements there already too! Sid is very eager to please and motivated by treats and lovins. Sid just got neutered and had a good bill of health at the vet!  At 72lbs he is probably underweight by 5-10lbs right now but we can easily fix that! Sid's Backstory:  Sid was found behind a nightclub in Polk County Florida and no owners came forward so DC Dogos was able to take him in.  He appeared to be a dogo argentino in the pics but we know now he is possibly a mix with American Bulldog and simply adorable. He was a bit underweight and this is probably due to him having hookworms but that is totally treatable and being handled.  show less

Thor is a typical male Dogo pup who wants what he wants, when he wants it.. but he is beginning to realize that he’s not in charge and is accepting his place. Thor was hesitant to trust at first, but he’s now thriving on routine, structure and with a strong leader. Ultimately, this should absolutely continue in his forever home.  💙Thor loves his people, and his affectionate nature and adorable face really does have people falling in love with him left right and center! He is an absolute sweetheart, loves to give kisses and he would snuggle all day if he could! 🏠🐾Thor’s adopter/s preferably would have breed experience, but experience with another dominant breed would be considered. No small children and no other dominant dogs. Cats seem to be okay so far 🐱!  His new family would also be active 🏃🏻‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️ and enjoy spending their free time being active with their dog - as Thor would love this. It’s also important everyone understands that training will need be a continued, to keep Thor on the path towards becoming an exceptional example of the breed 🐶 Thor is 6 months old and currently located in Atlanta, GA, but would relocate to the perfect home. ❣️If you think you’d be Thor’s perfect match, please fill out an adoption application! show less
