About Trooper

My story may be heartbreaking but I am definitely living up to my new name, Trooper!!  My last family dumped me at a kill shelter with massive leg injuries that happened months before. I have several breaks and my bone is shattered in my right front leg, HOWEVER, I am a survivor and have the strength to walk and use this leg now the best I can!

Trooper loves his people who are helping him! He loves his foster home and is very good at the vet office.  He doesn't complain and has got to be the most grateful rescue we have ever seen!

The rescue is still tending to his leg injuries and knows that he will be best fit for a chill home without a lot of stairs. We are unsure how he is with other dogs but prefer a home where he is the only dog child considering his long term leg issues that he may have.

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. We are not sure how she is around cats but, from what we see, cats wouldn't make it in her home- she has a strong will to chase and catch squirrels and any other critter she gets a glimpse of! Updates about Angel will be provided as we continue to learn more about her and watch her progress through training!! You can learn more about the rescue and our dogs at www.dcdogos.org. show less

Arya is taking adoption applications but she is not yet ready for her new family! First she has to recover from her difficult spay surgery and next seek some veterinary attention for her unsteady hind legs. This DOES NOT stop her from wanting to play! She loves going on short walks around the neighborhood and is fabulous on the leash; unless a cat crosses her path so definitely a cat-free home is a must! Arya was picked up as a stray in south Florida and her owner decided not to pick her up this time around. Their loss because she is a total sweetheart, loves people, seems to be dog friendly, and just wants attention from her humans! We think she was an outside dog so now she is learning how to not have accidents inside the home. We are also working on teaching her basic manners and she learns quick! Arya will most definitely steal your heart if you ever have the opportunity to meet her. She is just over a year and a half old so has a bit of puppy in her along with being extremely affectionate. She LOVES giving kisses and putting her head in your lap. We expect Arya to be ready for her adoptive family after May 1st. Until then we want to continue to work with her training and recovery from all that she's been through. She currently lives in the Tampa Bay area but will travel for the perfect family. That family will need to have the patience to continue work with her obedience training and puppy energy! show less

Brutus is currently living the foster life in Bowling Green, OH but he recently told us he is willing to travel and adopt a new family! He is ready for adoption and looking for a family that loves to play, walk, run, and be active. At 115lbs and 11months old this dogo is a big mush that like to make his human laugh. Right now everything is fun for him yet he knows how to behave when told to. Brutus is housebroken and crate trained along with knowing how to behave indoors. The foster was perplexed as to why a dog like him ended up surrendered to the shelter. Well, someone gifted him as a puppy to an older couple who couldn't keep up with the puppy energy of a dogo! No fault of his own for sure but we are sure glad to have him in the rescue! We all love the little spot by his right eye that seems to add a little to his character! Brutus says he would really like a backyard because his foster says he loves to run and play like a wild man! However, he calms down when inside and behaves like he should. He has requested that his new parents have lots of toys for him because he loves playing with toys! On his first outing he got to meet a man in a wheelchair and that didn't phase him one bit. The man welcomed the attention so Brutus made sure to give him a dogo facial and everyone was happy. He truly made that man's day and showed what a good boy he is and how is sweetness can really comfort people. If you are interested in Brutus please apply and we will be screening applications to get him into a new home! show less

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 www.dcdogos.org. show less

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. show less
