About Max II

Max is located in St. Louis and currently under the care of his foster family. He has several medical issues to address before he can be adopted.  Stay tuned for more progress and please consider donating to his medical needs!

UPDATE 01/15/2020 - Last week we got biopsy results back and Max has something called Pemphigus foliaceus, this is an autoimmune disease and explains so much of what we are seeing with his slow progress.  We are going through treatment with him for this and really hope he is healthy soon so he can proceed with Heartworm Treatment.  He was recently neutered in effort to to help a chronic urinary issue they felt was due to his prostate. His paws have a severe case of hyperkeratosis that causes him pain and the vet removed as much as they could and he is recovering from that as well.  Despite all that is "wrong" with Max, he is truly a lover! He lets his foster take care of him and just wants to be loved, so he gets lots of that!

UPDATE 10/23/19
Max was seen at the vet on Monday and we have some of those results. He is Heartworm +, Lyme's Disease +, Hookworms +, Roundworms +, staph pyroderma, anemic, malnourished, and underweight. He has to go back to the vet for some more diagnostics but at least right now he is eating good, starting meds, and getting love from his foster. Thanks to all who have donated thus far. We expect his bill to keep rising and every bit helps!

10/20/19: Here we go again with another beautiful dogo in terrible shape thanks to people 😭. We picked him up Sunday as a breeder/owner surrender and the foster couldn't believe her eyes. Max is in so much discomfort, can barely walk or get up, peeing/vomiting blood, has hookworms, staph infection, and totally defeated. (We decided Max needs a new name for his new life, any good suggestions from a movie/TV series character!?)

He was a stud male used to put money in their pockets but now in awful shape and suffering.(WATCH HIM WALK HERE https://youtu.be/EfhVYgg0Bws) He deserves better! Today he saw the vet and we ran skin scrape, heartworm test, tick-borne disease test, full bloodwork, fecal test, and exam. Our bill today was $450 including his preventatives and antibiotics. Waiting on results to see what else is wrong aside from malnutrition and neglect. He is too immunocompromised to get vaccinations at this time.

  Meet Cinna! He is currently living in Florida and has proven to be a wonderful young male dogo!  Cinna is a quick learner and very eager to please, even though sometimes he has typical dogo stubborness at times. We think Cinna is about 2-3 years old but we do know that he is absolutely STUNNING!   His photos may show some wounds but they are all bacterial infections that are fully healing.  Currently he is 96lbs and has another 10+ lbs to gain to be at a healthy weight for his size.  Every day we see improvements with Cinna and his training to learn all the new boundaries to be a good dogo.  He loves people but be ready because he's a kisser and hugger! We know that he is friendly with other female dogs but haven't had the chance to test with males just yet, but we would prefer a no male dog home for Cinna considering his confidence and size. He recently discoverd that he like to swim in the pond and loves to run around and play chase with other female dogs.  He is a flirt with the girls!  Regading kids and cats, we don't have a way to test so we prefer a home with grown ups and possibly older children. Cinna is textbook dogo when it comes to attitude and demeanor so we recommend him going to an experienced dog home, preferrable one who has dogo or similar experience to keep him on the right track. We don't know how he is in a home and he will most likely need to be house trained, but we do think he will train very well. He is going to make a wonderful companion to whomever is chosen to be his new parent. Cinna is great in the car and clearly enjoys going places and seeing what is going on.  He truly is simply wonderful! Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them never ends!  Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires you set! Dogos are loving, kind and gentle but don't mistake that for weakness because they are equally powerful and intense as well! Everyone in the home must be on board with having a dogo and play a major role in their daily routines and training. Yes it is work, but the rewards are ten-fold! Lazy homes don't work for dogos as they need stimulation, exercise, and lots of attention too during their younger years.  Our goal in rescue is to be as transparent as we can about each and every dog plus make sure new families really understand the needs of a dogo!   show less

Meet Effie!! She is a young female dogo currently in Florida with lots of energy and kisses to give. Effie is about 3-4 years old and appears to have possibly been a mama dog in the past. Mamas always tend to steal our hearts as they are extra loving and nurturing! She is learning commands quickly and eager to please as she is learning new boundaries.  Effie loves to run around in the yard with Prim and we have not introduced her to other dogs just yet. She is a confident girl so a home with a friendly dog would be good for her.  We don't know how she is with kids or cats so we prefer a home with grown ups and possibly older children.  Effie is a really good girl and very textbook female dogo in terms of being loving, happy, strong, and confident!  She does well in the car and was good at the vet too! We do not know if she is house trained but certain that she will learn quick. Effie does very well in a kennel and on a leash from what we have seen so far.  Effie had several skin infections that may be seen in some of her pictures but she is recovering and doing well.  She does have a scar on her head that we are not sure of, possibly an old skin infection that was not treated in time. However, she really is just perfect! Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them never ends!  Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires you set!
