Mira is a Texas girl with a big spirit despite having some rougher days prior to rescue! She is friendly with people and may need a second to warm up to men, but it does not take her long to learn she can trust them too! Mira has not been fully introduced to other dogs but she is showing to be friendly with the male dogs. Given her confidence she would probably not love having another female dog around right now. We do not know her behavior with kids or cats so those homes cannot be considered at this time. Mira has medium energy and loves going on walks and hikes to explore the outdoors. We will learn more about her medically soon but we do know she has hair loss due to malnutrition and we expect her to make a full recovery once she reaches her healthy weight. Mira is east of Dallas now and if she'd love to stay in Texas but if the right home is in another state she is willing to move!

Meet Oliver! Sticking with this years book theme, he has been named after Oliver Twist; a young, good-hearted, and kind--but mistreated--orphan from a Charles Dickens novel. He is a friendly and quiet 2 year old boy from Florida who recently came into the rescue when we saved him with just hours of notice from being put down! We are happy that Oliver is safe now, will no longer be mistreated, and we can help him find his forever home! Oliver was living outside, but seems to be house trained. He spent most of his time following his owner around all day while she worked outside, and got used to being near his people all day. His current fosters report that he is very well mannered, enjoys laying by their feet, and chewing on his antler. Oliver walks nicely on a leash and responds well to corrections. Although very sweet, he can be a bit stubborn and needs someone who can work with him on learning basic commands. Oliver is sensitive, and will benefit from being given time to adjust to new things. He is used to living around other dogs, but will need slow introductions. We think he will do ok with another female dog. The perfect home for him would be with someone that is home a lot and has time and attention to give him. Oliver is really mellow, but can be a howler! We've also heard that he likes relaxing to both classical and reggae music!

Prince is a happy and healthy big boy currently living in Baltimore. He loves everyone he meets and so far he has shown no ill behaviors to other dogs. Prince really loves attention and has great behavior in the home. He is house trained and doing well with crate training too! We are still learning about Prince and will update as we get to know him better! We do know that his former owner really did love him but was no longer able to care for Prince and had to give him up. Thankfully the rescue had space to take him in at the time and he is now in with a foster and looking for a new family! Currently his foster is putting in a lot of effort towards his training and has made a lot of progress with him. He needs a strong handler but one that also enjoys to give a lot of love and cuddles too! He is a confident boy but does not like thunderstorms despite his tough guy look! Right now he is not ready for adoption but we expect him to be read in early Spring after gets through training and learns proper manners and obedience. We pride ourselves on the effort we put towards training dogs in our program. Adoptions are important but unless they are properly trained they are not ready for homes!

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.

Located in Florida, Victory is a sweet approx 6 year old female Dogo that we rescued from a high kill shelter in Florida. We don't know much about her past but we do know that she really enjoys loving on her humans! She is eager to please and enjoys practicing how to be a good dog. Her manners were not so great but they are getting better every day and we are so proud of her. She would do well in a home without other dogs, or a very submissive male. We do not know how she is with children or cats but would recommend a home without either at this time. She has shown to get along with smaller dogs but with proper intros and handlers as with any dogo. She LOVES going on walks and cuddling on the couch. This sweet girl just wants to be your very best friend and companion! The perfect new owner would be able to continue her manners training and socialization to ensure success. She has a lot of potential and we think she has a bright future ahead of her. Victory LOVES her humans & is eager to please! If you are interested in fostering or adopting Victory please fill out our application on our website! More information about the rescue and dogs in our care can be found at www.dcdogos.org.
