Abby is in a Foster-To-Adopt home.  We are still taking applications for her during this time in the event things change! Currently in Ocala, FL, Abby is looking for the perfect home where she can chill and be loved!  She is a really good girl and extra sweet according to her foster.  Abby gets along with the other female and male dog in the home and integrated with them both. She would love to have furry siblings in her next home but she is also perfectly happy with her humans. We don't know how she would do around cats and plan on a home without small children due to her delicate front right leg.  We know that Abby is about 3 years old and that she suffered a massive leg break as a puppy.  This was never given any medical attention so it healed on it's own and set in place. We had X-Rays and the vets all agree that there is nothing surgical that can be done at this point and to make sure she is comfortable. Abby uses the leg and we are going to see if a splint makes her life any easier. Her next home just needs to be one she could easily get around in and gets losts of love! Since being with DC Dogos she has learned a lot about being an inside dog and is now housetrained. She really loves to hang out and lay on her back like dogos tend to do! She really is a sweet girl and we cannot believe how wonderful she is despite that injury she has.  Abby also shows signs of hip dysplasia onset and her new family will need to keep her on daily joint meds, good food, and moderate exercise.  When we got Abby she was "cow hocked", meaning her knees bent inward on her back legs. Now that she gets proper exercise and not in a crate 24/7 she has really shown a lot of improvement and we expect that to continue! Her foster says her cow hocked back legs are barely even noticable now.  TLC and proper care goes a long way! For more information about Abby you can contact us at paws@dcdogos.org. Her current foster is moving and we need to find her a new home in June and we prefer it to be her furever home if at all possible! show less

*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

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. 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! For more information you can email us at paws@dcdogos.org. 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!

Jyn is living in Oldsmar, FL with her fabulous foster family and she really loves learning from the dogo mentor she has in the home! This pup is a lot of fun and she WILL make you laugh because she loves to clown around.  Jyn is learning all about basic manners and and is eager to please.  She is going to make a wonderful addition to her furever family for sure! She really likes going on adventures and being the center of attention out on the town too! Jyn loves the little humans too and when she sees one she will go follow them around!  She truly is an amazing girl and we can't wait until the right family adopters her. 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.

Polaris "Po" is a young deaf female currently living in Tampa, FL with her foster mom.  She cannot hear a thing but responds very well to learning and surely is a good girl.  Po was found on the streets by a cop who took her to the local shelter so we don't know anything about her history before us. We do know that she is dog friendly and kid friendly too.  She is trying to figure out what the big dog-like things are on the property and very curious to learn more about them....we call them horses!!  You can learn more about Po and follow her own facebook page at this link: https://www.facebook.com/Sweet-P-and-Me-101087961246489/ 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

My name is Sage! I am 4 years old and soon to be the love of your life! My foster mom says everyone that meets me falls in love. My first owners never socialized me with other dogs properly, buckily my current foster mom is a dog trainer and behavior specialist and has been helping me learn “how to dog.” I play really well with my medium-sized foster sister and I want to play with my little-sized foster sister but she gets a little scared because I’m so strong. My foster mom says I am the most perfect dog in the world, the only thing is that I am very protective of her. This especially comes into play with my medium-sized foster sister. I just want to make sure she listens to our mom and I don’t like when she gets too excited especially around toys. I have tried to put her in her place a couple of times now; our mom doesn’t like it even though I’m just trying to help. To be honest, I’m more of a people person than a dog person. I can have a future dog sibling but I am dog selective. I would do best with a dog sibling that either has low energy or can play when I want, but is very respectful of my space. I would need a slooooowwwww introduction (my foster mom can help). I do okay around cats, but my foster mom wouldn’t trust me alone with them. I also do the best with older kids. Little ones just have way to much energy for me. I love snuggling up next to you, putting my head on your lap, stealing your spot on the couch (even though my mom doesn’t let me on the sofa; I still get one when she’s not looking). I get a little nervous around storms but with my bed away from windows, you in the room, and a blanket over me, and I’ll be okay! My foster mom LOVES that I have never destroyed anything and I am proud of that too! I am potty trained and will let you know when I have to go (also when I’m really hungry). I walk really well on leash and would do great on a hike if I continue my training. I also know sit, lay down, paw, place, & leave it! My foster mom loves me so much she is willing to give my next family a free training session. I would LOVE to stay either in the Chattanooga or Nashville area. That way I can still see my foster mom from time to time (I love her so much) and she can continue my training for free! show less
