About Effie

Adoption Fee: $350

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! 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!

Dogo Argentino

Hiiiii! My name is Chaplin aka Chappy! I am a 2 year old Dogo Argentino that is looking to find my forever home! I’m a big goofball and... show more

Hiiiii! My name is Chaplin aka Chappy! I am a 2 year old Dogo Argentino that is looking to find my forever home! I’m a big goofball and still working on my manners. It would be best for my new family to continue training with a professional as I’m really silly and kind of a clown. I recently completed my heart worm treatment and now slowly I am getting exposed to more things. I seem to be interested in cats but a proper introduction may be best. I am around other dogs but seem to do better with lady dogs. I’m working on my introductions with people as I’m kind of judgey.. some people I just love right away others I need to be around you for a little bit. I’m not aggressive just vocalize my opinion. I seem to warm up to woman quickly but some men I want to get to know more over a little bit of time. I am an awesome eater and do not turn down my food or snacks. I am a giant love bug and looking for someone who likes to be active but also spends time as a homebody. If you’re not looking to adopt, please share me so my new family can find me! My perfect home would have a big fenced in yard for me to play in, and no kids under 10 years old - I'm just too clumsy and I wouldn't want to knock anyone down! My profile may still say I am not neutered but that will change. I had to get through heartworm treatment first and will be snip snipped before my adoption! show less
