About Piper

Adoption Fee: $300

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

  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!

Update: March 6, 2020 Judy’s foster family says she’s doing absolutely wonderful, considering she’s been in an outdoor kennel for the past year! She hasn’t had one potty accident in the house, nor in her crate during the work days.  She has been receiving a refresher course on her in-home manners/basic obedience. She’s eager to please and very treat oriented! She just wants to be near her human at all times and tends to get alittle mischievous while left alone. She is protective of her space but looks to her human for direction, and follows direction very well! With our observance, we feel that Judy would strive in an only dog home and/or with a chill male! She wants all the loving for herself. This sweet affectionate girl, Judy Blume, is still looking for her new forever home 🥰!   2/15/2020 Judy is (4) yrs old, currently in NC, and is coming to us as a owner surrender. She’s very affectionate, knows her basic commands, and very willing to please!   She has lived the past year in an outside kennel but before that was a inside family girl. That being said, she may need some polishing up on her in-home manners. Although we’ve been told that she is okay with other male dogs, we don’t feel comfortable risking it at this time. We don’t know much about this girl, but eager to learn all there is to know about her! 🙂 At this time... We are looking for a foster with no other dogs (or the ability to keep separate 24/7) and no kids under 10 years old, that will open up their home to this gorgeous girl, and provide some TLC during her spaying and healing process. 🙏🏼 show less

Now located on the east coast, Lola is a 7 year old spayed female rescued from a shelter in Southern California.  Her owner surrendered her because they were moving out of state and couldn't take her with them.  They reported that Lola enjoyed being outside in their yard, was crate trained at night inside the house, enjoyed baths, and was good with kids.   While at the shelter, Lola won the hearts of all the volunteers and dog walkers! They reported that she is very friendly, affectionate, mellow and well-behaved.  She loves to be cuddled and scratched, and will roll over for belly rubs.  Lola has some basic obedience training, including leash walking, and does well in the car.  She loves walks and playing and has a medium energy level.  We are continuing to learn more about Lola as she is currently in her foster home. She needs training, but is food and treat motivated and willing to learn. She loves all people she meets, but is not too fond of other dogs.  She has never been around cats, but has a strong prey drive, so we think she should be the only pet in the home :)  Lola is a sweetheart that is looking for someone that can give her a lot of love and doesn't mind kisses!  This girl also enjoys posing for photo shoots! She is fantastic in the car and is willing to travel for the perfect home! show less
