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 ūüė≠. 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 PIPER! Piper is an year old deaf female currently located in Land O Lakes, Florida. Piper is a young and healthy girl that really loves attention and being with her people! Piper is looking for an adopter or foster who can continue teaching her sign language and giving her the guidance needed to be an extraordinary Dogo. She would prefer a home without children under the age of 10 as she is still learning her manners and doesn't mean to, but may knock one down! It's also important Piper goes to a home with deaf dog experience, as she needs additional training.  See below for more info on being a parent for deaf dogs!  We will require that she has a home with a secure fenced in yard in an active home. She has shown that she just wants to play with other male dogs, but doesn't seem to get along with the female dogs.  We are hoping this changes now that she is spayed but a home without other female dogs is probably best. 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!  Can't adopt or foster but want to help? She has her own wish list that includes a few things to help keep her occupied and happy!  https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/8LVYC59671JS?ref_=wl_share show less

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
