The one and only ALLI girl! She is living her life to the fullest right now in Tampa, FL. Alli is ALWAYS happy and she loves everyone and everything. This dog is going to make someone's life better for sure becuase she has something about her that we cannot put into words. She is very well behaved and playful and extemely fun. Alli loves to snuggle and hug nonstop until she melts to the floor for more scratches and belly rubs. This girl loves everyone she meets and quickly got over her shyness with meeting new people. Hugs, love, and treats fix about anything! Alli is very dog friendly and we find it easy to introduce her to new dogs of all kinds. She doesn't seem to care about chickens or pigs she sees on the other side of the fence. Alli isn't phased by the dogs that act like maniacs and try to bark at her, she could care or less! We would love for her to have another dog in her forever home as it does seem to help her a lot to have a buddy. As far as kids, she hasn't met any yet but we will work on that. We expect she would do fine but we will update once we know more. Alli came from a 65 dog neglect case and was in horrible shape. She was emaciated and her spirit was defeated. Her bloodwork showed that she was extremely anemic and that caused her to be lethargic and not feel well. Both of her ears were infected along with dermitis and hair loss. After about 3 weeks we were able to get her healthy enough to be spayed so she can no longer be a puppy making machine and she is thrilled about that! Her transformation has been so impressive and an inspiration. With that said we are not sure if she is house trained but she does keep a fairly clean kennel space. She is so good that her beds and toys don't explode into puff like they do with some dogs! This girl really loves her meals and treats and will wag her tail and body back and forth with total excitement. She gives the best hugs too and will wrap her little arm around you with all the love she has. Her Rescue Story: Alli was part of a recent case in Florida involving 60+ dogs needing rescue. Photo from intake is included. You can read about where she came from in this story: https://www.winknews.com/2022/08/09/65-dogs-removed-from-neglectful-clewiston-home/?fbclid=IwAR3xnewutPwkjfpywEVeGWNn7KkqUNVTXEVVJlTFk4WZRj6ftsbDP3pCayA&fs=e&s=cl

Annie is a single white female that is about 3 years old in search of a fun person to spend the rest of her life with! Let start with the best things about Annie. She is a lover and would be near you at all time if you allow her. Not only is she gorgeous but she has the sweetest soul ❤️ Eager to please but also stubborn like a typical Dogo. Very smart and you can never underestimate her! She absolutely would never hurt humans (except maybe ones with bad intentions). Her foster mom has put her through so many scenarios and she always yields to people. She likes to invade your personal space for love at all times and forgets her strength and size. For that reason we would not have her around kids under 12. Her best life would include working a laborious task, hiking, or something physically challenging. She has great energy and would love someone or a couple who have an active lifestyle. She is a dream to walk on leash and she would love to join your adventures! Annie is very athletic and would thrive with some agility training or other types of activity training out there for smart dogs like her. She experienced food insecurity and because of that she will try to get to food!! Not a difficult thing to do as a responsible pet owner. She was repeatedly attacked by a dog and because of that she has many scars and many fears of dogs. She wants to have dog friends and really tried hard but some deep down triggers seem to get in the way. We have tried many times with several different dogs and ultimately decided that she just prefers a human only home! Annie's Story: Annie was locked in an attic and left there alone when her people left for good. She had been there a long time and put her head through a window and barked for help to the surrounding neighbors. A neighbor saved her and got ahold of DC Dogos to scoop her up! She deserved better than this abandonment and we will keep her safe and loved forever!

Besito means little 😘👄 in Spanish, but there is nothing little about this girls love! ❤️ Besito is a DC Dogo alum and sadly her adopter has fallen on a hard time. We would love to see a happy ever after by reuniting them. We can only do this if we could find a foster to keep Besito safe for the next year or so, or even 6 months. Could you help this girl journey back to her family after a little adventure?! Besito is a sweet girl who is serious about her Snacks! She loves to hang with a chill male and does well in a crate. If you can foster or know someone in Ohio or the surrounding states that could please fill out a foster application!

Beth was rescued from the rural dirt roads of south Miami on 12/08/22 and instantly gave kisses to her the volunteer who picked her up! This girl is about 3 to 4 years old and has a ton of personality. She is extremely loving and affectionate even after being thrown out like trash by people she trusted. She recently had puppies as she is still producing milk, so we all hope they are ok and end up in the right hands. At least we know that Beth will never have to worry about where her next meal will come from ever again. This girl has a ton of confidence, and we know she is going to make a great pet to her next family. She knows the basic commands and has good manners as well. We are working on her socialization with other dogs but have not introduced her without boundaries yet. She is making great progress so far and will update as we learn more. Beth has a lot of spunk and energy and will need an active home to keep her busy. So far she loves to venture out and is curious about everything and every smell she comes across! Beth is officially spayed now and no longer responsible for make puppies! She is ready for a foster or adopt home where she can get all the lovins she can take. We have learned that she really enjoys going on walks and checking things out on the property. Now that she has been with us a few weeks we found that she loves her toys!! She gets frisky and hops around playing with all her stuffies. She also keeps a very clean space and doesn't destroy her bed or belongings. She is an easy girl although needs a firm parent as she is a typical confident female that needs those dogo boundaries! She has been nothing but a joy with the staff and was also great at the vet, they adored her too!!

Cyndi is a 1 year old female. She was found wandering Daytona Beach FL, crying for her young puppies and for food. She is a sweet, petite, wild child that will need to learn basic commands and manners. Cyndi will require lots of exercise. She does great with other dogs and will be fine with older children. Cyndi is so loving despite her rough start and bad introduction to humans. Please consider giving this beauty a forever home!

We rescued Gina from a rural shelter after she was found roaming the woods with another Dogo, Tommy. Gina was a hot mess - heartworm positive, pregnant, emaciated with a yellow stained coat. Her first few weeks in rescue were tough on Gina as she had to be separated from her best friend Tommy, and then heartbreakingly lost her entire litter of puppies. Despite Gina's traumatic few weeks, nowadays she is the happiest girl in the world. Reunited with Tommy, they are both being fostered in the Atlanta suburbs where they spend their days playing with their dozens of toys, napping on their soft and comfy beds, and digging in the yard searching for moles. Gina loves her people and would happily spend all of her time with her humans, and she is so affectionate - this girl gives the best hugs!! Gina is well behaved and trained in basic commands. Gina's ideal home would be somewhere Tommy would be welcome, too (: Although Gina is good with other dogs (with a good intro of course) her ideal home would be one where her and Tommy could be the only dogs - giving their humans ample time to give them both the attention they deserve. Preferably people who like being outdoors, as they both adore spending time outside. No small children, as these two play hard and would knock over anything in their way! Due to Gina's health issues, she is currently going through slow-kill heartworm treatment and will remain intact until our vet deems it safe enough to spay her, Any home interested in her would foster her until this time comes, with all medical expenses being covered by us.

We saved Jewel (formerly Harper) from a Houston shelter within hours of her euthansia deadline. She is heartworm positive, has demodex, and suffers from an old gunshot wound to her right front ankle. We think she is about 4 years old, possibly younger and has had a very difficult and rough life so far but it will never be that way again. She is timid and shy to humam touch but we know she will recover over time and come out of her shell as she learns to trust us! Stay tuned for updates and we expect the earliest she would be available for adoption is early June. Update :Jewell has been in her new foster home for a few months now. Jewell is enjoying the home life and doing well with her foster brother. Jewell loves her daily walks and enjoys swimming in her pool or any water. Jewell would do best in a home that has another confident male dog, so she continues to gain confidence. Jewell has done very well with her foster dog brother and has gain confidence and learn how to be how to be a dog. Jewell is still HW positive and has several tick borne disease but is on treatment and is doing well and is ready for her forever home.

Hi, I’m Kendall. My foster parents call me Kendy Cane because I’m sweet as candy. I’m also a spicy jalapeño popper…ya know, the best of both worlds! I’m currently located in South Florida. I was found roaming around in the middle of nowhere in the Redlands, FL. I was used to make puppies and then I got dumped and I have no idea why. I’m a really good girl! And not just that, I’m a total knock out beauty. Everyone tells me how stunning I am. And they’re not wrong. For the most part, I’m a low key, nap-loving kinda gal, but I also LOVE to play hard with my foster brother (he’s a Dogo too) and we can get a little crazy sometimes. If he won’t play with me, I just keep myself entertained by zooming around and throwing toys to myself. Speaking of which, I love other dogs, big and small, male and female. I haven’t been tested with cats, but I’ve seen them outside while I’m leashed and I haven’t really reacted. I’ve also been around cows, horses and chickens, and I pretty much ignore them too. I love humans. I love to meet everyone, and giving kisses to humans is one of my favorite things to do. Besides kisses, snuggling is kinda my thing and I’m convinced I’m a lap dog. I adore kids and I do very well around children ages 2 to 10+ but sometimes I forget how big and strong I am, and occasionally I even knock my foster mom off her feet when I’m playing and she’s in my way. Come on silly woman, get out of my way! Did I mention how much I like naps? I like them even more if pillows are involved. OMG, I loove pillows! They’re so smooshy. I’m working on my leash training, and I’ve improved a lot, but I still pull pretty hard. I just get really excited about everything…there’s so much to see and so much to sniff! I’m also working on my commands and I’m doing really well. I can sit, down, stay and more! I also know hand signals. I’m super smart like that. I have a good appetite and I am very motivated by treats (and bananas)! When I see my meals coming, I turn into a ravenous white tornado, spinning in place and jumping with excitement. One time I knocked my food bowl out of my foster dad’s hands, so now I have to sit and wait for my food until my foster parents give me a release command. What a dumb rule. But I’m really good at it! I live for walks. I kinda lose it when I know I’m about to go on a walk. Walks are like…the best (especially if I get to see a squirrel. OMG). Speaking of which, my prey drive is pretty low. I’m very curious about squirrels and birds, but I don’t really go after them. I get really excited for car rides even though I get car sick. Recently, my foster parents have been giving me Meclizine (non-drowsy Dramamine) before car rides and guess what? I haven’t upchucked since! Winning. I’ve had to see the vet a lot lately. But it’s cool, I love going to the vet, and the staff loves me even more! Not to brag, but my vet said she wanted to take me home! I’ve had some infections, inflammation, and leaky butt issues…but I mean, who wouldn’t have issues after being dumped in the middle of nowhere? I’m pretty much all better now, but I may need to have my glands expressed on a regular basis. Yet to be determined. The vet also says I have may have allergies, but they’re really not bad. I’m just a little itchy every now and then. On the Dogo spectrum, I’m on the small side. I weigh about 75lbs but the vet says I should gain a few more pounds. I’m working on it! I have some separation anxiety and I really don’t like to be alone. I cry/whine a lot when I am alone. I mean, who am I going to give kisses to if I am all by myself? The absurdity of it all! So I would love to be in a home where my humans are home most of the time. I don’t bark a whole lot but in true Dogo style, I do whine…a lot! Sometimes for no apparent reason, I just enjoy whining…it’s my thing. There’s so much to love about me, I could just go on forever! But I’ve been told I’m getting a little “wordy” here, so if you have any questions, DC Dogos or my foster parents would be happy to answer them! Xoxo, Kendall

Meet K O A !! Koa is a 2.5 year old dogo with so much love to give he could burst! Currently located in the Atlanta, GA area, Koa is looking for a foster that not only wants to be his bestie, but can also remind him that he's not the boss and keep his silly wiggle butt in line. Koa was surrendered to us by his owner and sadly turned out to be heartworm positive, so Koa's foster won't need to be concertned about taking him on hikes and treks across the jungle as Koa will need to stay calm & collect for the up and coming few months. The stress and heartbreak of leaving the only home he ever knew was a lot for Koa and he is not healthy enough to have the heartworm killing injections at this time. so Koa is a very low maintenence medical foster! Koa has a wonderful temperament and loves humans of all sizes. He has been known to be good with dogs of both sexes, but his foster should have the ability to separate at least for a week or two upon Koa's arrival, as he likes to get to know his humans first and then meet his new dog friends. Koa has not been cat tested at this time. If you think you could be Koa's new safe haven, apply to foster! Koa will travel for the right home (:

Meet Lucy!! Lucy is a 4 year old adult female Dogo Argentino currently being fostered in Arizona. Lucy is about the sweetest female Dogo you will ever, ever find. Truly. She LOVES people! In fact, she will wiggle her whole body and cover you with kisses and snuggle with you. She will do best as an only dog in the home and will love her family unconditionally. She may look Dogo but she has the heart of a Labrador Retriever (for people). Lucy was recently spayed and is recovering in her foster home where she is showered with love, toys, and a big backyard where she takes her morning sun tans! She is doing fantastic on the leash and had a previous foster who was an incredible instructor. She taught Lucy how to feel safe when around other dogs and she has made excellent progress! Although Lucy has played well with other Dogos SUPERVISED, Lucy has gone through a few behavioral lessons and will continue to need supervision and instruction. Lucy will do well in any home where she is the only dog. She simply deserves a wonderful home where she'll never have to fight for attention again! Lucy would thrive in a home where she will be the sunshine of your life and the center of your world! She would love an active lifestyle but honestly would be happy as can be just to be by your side. She would much rather be with her people than playing out in a backyard alone. She is such a fantastic girl, she will make anyone happy!! If you think she's melted your heart and might be the Dogo you are looking for, please fill out an adoption application or feel free to reach out to the rescue with any questions you may have. Transport can be arranged for the right home.
