*LONG TERM FOSTER NEEDED IMMEDIATELY*  Adalina is a wonderful dogo and beautiful girl.  She has had 2 types of cancer, both of which have been surgically removed.  The rescue has decided that if the right adopter comes along but the finances cannot support future cancer surgeries we will adopt her out as a Sponsored Adoption.  This means the rescue will be responsible for anything major medical that may arise for Adalina. We are also considering a Long Term Foster home but either way, we need somewhere for Adalina right away!  Her current foster is unable to keep her for us at this time.  Adalina is currently living in Rosamond, CA (north of Palmdale) and she is ready for her new furever family!  She is approximately 7-8 years old and we saved her from the kill shelter in L.A. and immediatly had a tumor removed that was causing her agony.  The vet got clear margins and her squamous cell tumore is G O N E!  Watch her video to see how thrilled she is after having her life back! She is a great dogo and even does well with her foster family children. She is a total love bug and just loves her people!! She was friendly with other small dogs and that is something a new family will need to continue to work on.  Grown dogos tend to be set in their ways so she can be dog selective. Adalina loves attention and going on walks and going on little adventures.  She has really turned herself into an amazing girl from the day we got her. She was so shut down and defeated but now she is a fantastic girl with energy and love to share! If you would like to learn more about Adalina please apply or reach out to us by email or phone!  P: 877-400-DOGO  E: paws@dcdogos.org show less

On 09-11-2019 Angel was reported to us from foster as being found hit and killed by a car.  Currently we are searching for Angel since we have no proof of this to full confirm that she is gone. She was last seen in Conyers, GA and if you have any information her whereabouts dead or alive please contact us.  There is currently a $250 Reward for information regarding Angel.  E: Paws@dcdogos.org or P: (877)400.DOGO. Originally a Florida gal, Angel is a 6 year old Dogo Argentino who spent about 7 months at a humane society shelter, where she was loved and adored by all staff and volunteers!! She loved seeing her people and giving kisses every single day.  She currently lives in Conyers, GA but willing to travel to her new family! Angel really loves to eat, especially if it involves peanut butter! She gets so excited to eat and she will tell you all about it too! Angel does play with another male dogo but seems to prefer to be around her human instead. Angel likes to be the dominant one and we feel that she would do best in a home without female dogs...or cats.  Now, Angel is going through training in Georgia to learn some basic manners. She is a good girl who has shown to be friendly with people, and even children! They are working on her socialization techniques with other dogs now that she knows she's in a safe place.  Angel has some funny little anxieties that are cute- it seems that everything is new to her, and she's got the excitement of a puppy to see the world! She has a whole world to experience so we are taking it step by step with this sweetheart. Angel is ready to be adopted to a home that has the time and patience to continue working on her training. The rescue does provide initial training but the adopter needs to take it from there and make sure she continues to be a wonderful Dogo. Angel has a strong will to chase and catch squirrels and any other critter she gets a glimpse of!  Cats are off limits for her so a no cat home is a must.  Updates about Angel will be provided as we continue to learn more about her and watch her progress through training!!

Bianca was recently saved from the streets of Puerto Rico on 2/26/19. Some people reached out to the rescue about a dog living in a park with another dog for about a month on their own. Some kind rescue friends in Puerto Rico quickly came to her rescue and brought her to the vet to get some much needed attention. She was SO happy to have human interaction and did great at the vet too.  She has been a total love right from the beginning despite how abandoned she must have felt.  She really loves her people and cherishes every kiss she gives! Now Bianca is living in the Loxahatchee area of south Florida with a foster mom.  She is a really good girl and everyone says she is a lot of fun. Her energy is going to make you smile no matter what! She is good around other dogs and while in PR they helped her with professional training and she did very well with socialization and that must continue so she stays on this path to success.  She is about 3-4 years old we think and probably was a mama at some point in her past.  Bianca is looking for a family that wants a fun dog they can play with and take on walks....she loves going on walks!  She wants to be an inside dog and have places to play and have fun.  Bianca has a habit of stealing shoes so we are working on that little issue so her new family must be able to give her lots of toys and places to run and enjoy the outdoors too.  If you are interested in Bianca please apply or email us at paws@dcdogos.org.  You can also learn more about the rescue at www.dcdogos.org.  We do help arrange little to no cost transport to their approved homes that are a really good fit. Also, Bianca needs a few things so if you like shopping here is her current wish list on Amazon! Please send a gift note so we know who to thank!

Buddy is an 8yo male dogo currently living in northern Ohio with his foster. He gets along really well with her cats! He loves going on walks but does not like being in the yard.  He will go out to do business but then wants to go back in, unless going on a walk!  Adores people when he's not on his territory.  He would be a great pet therapy dog if he could tone down his enthusiasm several degrees.  He does kiss on the first date. He does LOVE kids but we prefer a no kid home to ensure proper measures take place when people visit as he is very protective of his palace! Buddy has decided that he likes peanut butter on his toast.  Likes pizza, but prefers thin crust......watching his waistline.  You won't have to wash out your cereal bowl when you are done with breakfast, Buddy will gladly do that for you! He knows his basic commands and manners.  He is a senior but doesn't act like one in regards to his health and how well he gets around.  Buddy took some time to adjust with the foster and really took it hard when his world was flipped upside down and had to leave the only family he know. He was resistant but has really come a long way. He will need an experienced adopter and one with the patience to let him trust at his pace. Buddy has found the perfect foster as the stepping stone to his next home. We would not recommend a home with children since we do not know how he is around them and given his strong mindset we think a nice home with an experienced handler is best. He is very protective of his home!  Out in public he is not that way! Despite some of his quirks, Buddy proudly passed his ATTS test! This is a temperament test given by the American Temperament Test Society. For more information you can email us at paws@dcdogos.org. show less

Hopper is currently with his foster family in Inverness, FL and willing to relocate for the perfect home! His foster mom describes him as mellow, playful, affectionate, and somewhat timid (common for deafies).   He loves to be with other dogs and currently lives with 4 fur buddies. Hopper is being introduced to the cats and he is not aggressive just excited & curious. He is very dogo and therefore loves mud, water, and playing outside. He is learning sign language and eager to please and learn with positive reinforcement. He is crate trained and keeps a clean space. He really likes toys and things to chew on!  Leash training is in progress and he will continue to learn proper manners when out on a walk.  Like many pups, Hopper doesn't feel well in cars but this is something we will continue to work on and hope he grows out of it. Hopper really craves human affection/attention and being with the other dogs. We would prefer a home one or more friendly dogs since Hopper really loves having fur buddies to play with! Deaf dogs make wonderful pets for the right homes.  They need a family with patience and willingness to be consistant with training and hand signals.  They also need a family that will keep them safe from danger since they cannot hear things to alarm them, such as car horns if trying to cross a road. They need a home with very friendly dogs since they do not hear the cues dogs give when another dogs takes playing a little too far! Our rescue provides training to our adopters to help initiate the proper professional methods that need to be used for this breed and the special needs like deafness. You can look up more information about deaf dogs at www.deafdogsrock.org to learn more!  show less

Jack is currently in Florida and new to our rescue as of 6-14-19.  Jack is friendly to everyone he meets especially for men and particularly for men with beards!!  He must have had a good man in his life at one point because he gravitates to them and gives lots of love and hugs.  He would make the perfect pet for a man who wants a low activity amazing senior dogo! Jack also likes the ladies and currently lives at his foster mom's house amoung his haremm of females of all shapes, colors, and sizes!!  Clearly a womanizer with his handsome good looks and suave style! Cats are not safe around Jack so a no cat home is required! He seems to be well mannered and a nice senior dogo ready to find a new home to love and adore him after he gets going on his heartworm treatment. Yes, we did say heartworm! Unfortunately Jack was diagnosed with heartworms when we pulled him from the shelter but seems to be in early stages. He also had pyroderm gangriousum, which means he had a bad skin infection that went too far.  This takes months to a year to fully heal and we expect him to recover from the skin damage this type of condition causes. This disease will cost the rescue an average of $1200 when it is all complete, and that is a discounted rate that we get from our vets. Any help you can provide towards that is greatly appreciated!  (www.dcdogos.org/donate) Jack's personal Amazon Wish List:  https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/POLV1BJXUNF1?ref_=wl_share show less

Jada was found with her puppy, Willow, in an industrial area near Oakland, CA. Both were underweight, starved for food and attention, sick from parasites and exposure, and even sprayed by a skunk. They had recently had their ears cropped, an especially cruel experience for an adult dog, like Jada. Jada was especially tired and weary of strangers, from caring for Willow. Though DC Dogos initially intended to place Jada and Willow as a bonded pair, several weeks of evaluation and decompression revealed a need for Jada and Willow to start new, separate journeys, so they both can have their best chance. Jada has come to love and trust her foster family quickly. She is playful with her male dogo foster brother and affectionate toward her foster family. She enjoys cuddling, playing with toys, and lounging on the furniture. However, she has demonstrated stress, fear, and protective reactions to unfamiliar people and places, especially around Willow.  These behaviors likely stem from suspected past abuse and from having to protect Willow during their time on the loose. Jada is currently working on learning to develop trust, confidence and basic obedience with her loving foster family.  Jada will do best in an adult-only, low-stress home, with a consistent routine and few strange visitors. Jada is a mama's girl at heart but she would also appreciate a kind, loving, gentle dad. Her ideal "fur"-ever family will be committed to continuing her training--consistent and firm in establishing expectations for Jada but very patient and affectionate. Jada would love a fenced yard, with an easygoing male canine friend and a soft dog bed for naps. We welcome applications for Jada, but please be patient as we work on Jada's training. Preference will be given to adopters local to Arizona and able to attend a meet and greet prior to adoption. A special thanks to these donors for sponsoring Jada and her puppy, Willow, from sick and stray, to happily ever after!

Reyna is living in Fort Lauderdale with her fabulous foster family! She loves going out on adventures to parks, stores, drive thrus, and anywhere else you can take a dog...she is going!! This dog is becomming quite the socialite in South Florida and definitely loves all the compliments on how cute she is and her perfect heaert shaped nose! Reyna has decided that she really likes the little humans in the home along with all the other fun dogs. The little humans really like her too!  Reyna is a smart girl and quickly learning all the puppy manners and obedience.  Adopting from DC Dogos means you will get 3 initial phone training sessions with our trainer and it is expected for our adopters to complete training with our dogs.  We ask that applicants do intensive research on the breed before deciding on bring a dogo to your home.  They are a wonderful breed to have in the family but they are not a breed for everyone!  As loving and loyal as they can be they are equally strong and stubborn! This breed is not comparable to any other breed out there as they are very unique. They require a lot of exercise and stimulation along with stong boundaries in the home. Everyone in the home is expected to take part of the training and routine requirements for dogs adopted from our program to make sure they are successful in their placement! Our rescue offers endless support to our adopters because our dogs are extremely important to us!  Along with initial training we cover up to date vetting (vaccinations, fecal, HW test), spay/neuter, chip, and chip registration.

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

*PENDING ADOPTION!!* Violet has got to be one of the most well mannered dogos we have ever rescued! This girl clearly knows how good life is now that she is safe and loved with the rescue.  She LOVES everyone she meets and could not be any more awesome if she tried to be! She is dog friendly and now that she has recovered from her surgeries, mama Violet's true loving colors are starting to show.  She loves fetching a ball, playing with toys, and recently showed us she likes to play and swim in the water!  There is not one complaint about this girl to share, because she is perfect! Violet was saved out of an Orlando shelter after being found as a stray on the streets.  She has clearly been used as  a breeding factory and was extremely underweight.  She was very frail and didn't have much energy along with having several mammory masses.  Thankfully, they were all benign masses and she is now a healthy fabulous loving dogo! We don't know anything about her past and still can't understand how she was left to fend for herself. Violet is very well mannered and obedient, more than any rescue we have ever seen! She knows all the commands and is wonderful walking on leash, which she LOVES going on walks! She loves going places on car rides and meeting new people too. We don't know how she is around cats or kids in a home but was nice to them out in public and at the vet's office.  If you don't like getting love and kisses from a dog, Violet is not the dog for you!  She loves to show how much you mean to her and really enjoys hanging out with her people. This girl is truly special and deserves a loving home that will spoil her in a way that she deserves.  If you would like to donate towards Violet's previous medical bills you can go to dcdogos.org/donate or you can shop on her Amazon List at this LINK.  show less
