About Prince

Adoption Fee: $350

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!  

Prince is a very special boy and he needs an experienced owner that is willing to work with him on a regular basis. The saying "a tired Dogo is a good Dogo" was written specifically for Prince! Prince needs to be reminded about boundaries and kept on a routine, as well as be kept busy. We would prefer someone with breed experience, but would consider other similar power breeds. Prince loves his training sessions and even enjoys scent tracking work once a week with his foster!

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

Regan is a 1.5 year old female Dogo who is doing wonderful in her foster home! Here is her BIO written by her foster sibling, the cat she adores! Help!  I'm a 16 year old cat and my Mom has a foster Dogo here that thinks I'm her BFF.  I'm 8 pounds.  Regan is 100 pounds.  The Pony comes bounding into the living room, and gives me a huge play bow.  She gooses me with her nose.  Such indignities!     Do me a huge favor, and make this dog come to your house.  Regan loves playing with all the dog toys, cat toys too.  Totally unacceptable!  I sit in the window and watch her play in the yard.  Leaping and bounding, racing and chasing, weird noises, way too much activity for me.    She'll be 2 soon.  Life for Regan hasn't been fun or easy, not much stability in her earlier life, and not much love either.  She needs a home with other rowdy dogs so she can burn off some energy.  Because of an unstable home life, some things in life induce panic.  Trip to the vet's office?  Sheer panic.  You leaving the house?  Separation Anxiety rears its ugly head.  She was prescribed Prozac, and that has been amazing.  I can now take my morning nap without interruption.   Still working on her acceptance of strangers.  If she is with other dogs, she is not afraid.  By herself?  Some people are very scary.  Treats and sort of ignoring her seems to help convince her otherwise.   Christmas is fast approaching, and so is my 17th birthday.  Adopting Regan would be a wonderful present for me.  Adopt her so she can play bow and goose your cat. 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
