About Rio

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

Adoption Fee: $350

Big, 5-year-old teddy bear seeking a loving fur-ever home. Likes short walks in the grass, long naps on a comforter, and all humans. Must love kisses and lingering bear hugs!! Hi, my name is Bowzer. Before DC Dogos rescued me from a shelter, I was homeless. Don’t tell the other dogs, but I wanted a home so badly, I hopped into the animal control truck on my own! I’m a little unsteady on my feet, so DC Dogos hooked me up with tests to find out why. My vet says I have elbow dysplasia, mild hip dysplasia, and maybe a condition called wobbler’s syndrome. I know that sounds serious, but it doesn’t keep me down! I just need a soft place to rest, some joint supplements, and a little help with pain and mobility as I age. Otherwise, I’m healthy, happy, and loving life! It’s been awesome living with my foster human! I love my foster pack—all sizes, genders and ages! I would really love a home with one or two dog pals who are friendly, gentle, and smaller than me (even toy breeds are cool). I don’t dislike big dogs, but sometimes I clam up if I think they might knock me over. I’ve never seen a cat before. I like little people, but any mini-human siblings should have basic obedience. No rough love, please! I like to go in my crate with a cookie and my comforter when my foster human leaves, but I'd much rather spend time with my family. Sometimes I steal my foster human's house shoes so I can lay on them when I'm missing her, but I never chew. If I get lucky, I get to go for a ride! I’m respectful of furniture and content to sleep on my comforter, but I never turn down special time on the sofa or the bed when I’m invited. I'm still learning about toys. Want to teach me? I’ve had a few accidents in the house, but I’ve learned to do my business outside, and I’m working on basic obedience. My foster human keeps saying “Gooooood, Bowow!” whatever that’s about. I would love to keep learning with positive reinforcement in my forever home. If you think we might be a match, have your people fill out an adoption application, and my people will get back to you!

Faith is a sweet female dogo argentino with a loving soul and heart of gold! Her will to survive is beyond impressive and she will surely be a gift to her next family. Faith is deaf but that doesn't stop her from being 100% awesome! She is a brilliant girl that wants to learn and loves being rewarded with treats and kisses. She doesn't have all her manners yet but is learning every day how to behave like a lady! Her favorite past time is counter surfing but we are working towards a different interest to better suit the home life! One new improvement with Faith is that she is now learning how to play with other dogs!! We would still recommend an owner that understands the breed and how to properly socialize dogs as this still needs work. If you are looking for a dog to be your personal comedian look no further, Faith is that dog!! She is spunky and she will make you smile and laugh on a regular basis! The perfect human is someone with patience to learn her language, which is sign! She is a fast learner and knows the basic commands. This human also needs a safe fenced in yard with room for her to explore! Major plus for her is if you have a playground, she loves to climb things!!! Faith says that she wants anyone interested to please do their research on deaf dogs before applying! She says that dogs like her make great pets once their humans work on their own sign language commands. Faith also says it's true that deaf dogs are more "clingy" that other dogs because they want to be by their human's side as much as possible because they depend on their human so much! One last thing, Faith did say she loves wide open spaces to run but has been advised that deaf dogs really need a yard with a high (6ft+) fence. Apparently this helps humans from losing their deaf dogs that can't seem to hear them when they call them to come back! Thank you for your interest in adopting. You can learn more about her rescue that loves her to pieces at show less

Why is this sweetie still waiting for her forever home? Lucy is a true gem! This darling 2.5yo girl absolutely adores her humans, both big and small! Previously Lucy had a home with little humans and she did great with them! She is dog selective and a home without other dogs would be ideal for her. As with any dogo, Lucy is highly intelligent and loves learning new things, making her highly trainable. Lucy is on a strict diet to control GI issues she is suseptible to. Don't let this scare you!! All this means is you have to keep her on a particular diet and keep her away from eating treats she should not have. Plus, don't let her go garbage diving!! She's currently on a LID of Zignature Duck and is doing well. She is insured through VCA and Embrace Pet Insurance - it's important to keep her health insurance coverage active. Her current monthly costs run $140 for food, supplements and insurance. Any adopters must sign a contract stating they will maintain her diet and insurance. This sweetie LOVES the people in her life and is a total pleasure to have in the home. One of her favorite things to do is play tug-o-war!! She is young and full of life and deserves a fun loving family in return!! Lucy is currently located in Southern California.
