About Felix

Adoption Fee: $400

Felix is a young male who we rescued from a San Francisco, CA shelter on Halloween 2020.  He is now currently living with his foster family in Texas. We think Felix is around two years old. He has lots of energy and loves playing with toys! He is goofy and loveable! He also LOVES the water.

Felix is looking for a home that is patient, loving, and willing to help him learn some more manners and a bit more basic training.  He can be a little skiddish at first with strangers (especially men) and needs slow introductions to warm up to you. His new family should not have cats, but he may be ok with a female dog if the family is experienced and willing to separate and do slow and propper introductions. 

He needs a decent amount of exercise, and would really benefit from having some type of 'job' for extra mental stimulation. 

Felix needs an experienced owner who will be able to meet him in Texas and spend time getting to know him and working with him.

Echo is a giant 3 year old puppy who is loves to explore and play!  He is friendly with other dogs, both males and females and also good with older kids (16+).  Echo came from a family who had circumstances change and after they boarded him for a couple months they reached out to us and we were able to help.  He has a loving past and was also trained so his new foster will polish up on that training! Stay tuned for updates on Echo! He's young and full of playful energy that enjoys other dogs and going on walks. He's really enjoys training and catches on very quick. He probably would love going to training classes such as scent training, weight pull, agility, etc. Echo would do best with someone that is active and will be able to spend quality time with him. An adult home without kids would be perfect for him He needs a place to call home since he spent several months in boarding before we took him in!! In his current foster home located in Venice, FL he likes to play with his 2 year old dogo foster sister and they really have a lot of fun together!  He really enjoys having other dogs around so a home with other pets would be great. ECHO'S BACKSTORY: He comes from a loving family who was no longer to keep him due to housing issues. With them he did get professional training and was loved very much. They had to put him in boarding for several months and finally DC Dogos was able to bring him into the rescue.  show less

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. show less

Ki is a young male dogo currently living with his foster dad in Palm Harbor, FL. His foster describes him as being very friendly, sweet, affectionate, kissy face/licker, and a wild child. His hobbies include going on fun car rides but more importantly playing with all his dog  buddies.    Ki loves a dog party and will play all day if he is allowed. He is a big boy that has no clue of his size so he tends to overwhelm some dogs at times!  He is good with all dogs of any size both males and females. He really has a great personality and temperament that we hope sticks with him as he matures! He is good with kids but will bulldoze them over so a home with older kids would be preferred.   Another fun fact about Ki is that he is house trained!  He is also crate trained but will protest being in there because he prefers to be with his crowd. They have nicknamed him “Curly” after Curly in the Three Stooges since his whine sounds like that guy!  Look up the show if you don’t know what it is!   Going on walks is super fun for Ki as he enjoys the outdoors and meeting new people. He is a puller right now but we are working on this. The next home must continue leash training as well so he knows who is boss out there!   The perfect home for this guy would be an active family ready to spend lots of time with him.  Plus it would be ideal if they have other dogs already since he seems to love having fur friends so much.  Ki would need a nice yard with a fence so he can let this playful energy out on a regular basis too! This family would also need to have time to work on his training and commit to setting the boundaries and rules in place so he continues to be a great dogo!   Overall he is a big love and wants all of the attention!   Ki’ Story:  Somehow Ki ended up at a shelter in Massachusetts at just 10 months old.  We don’t know why but would guess the family just couldn’t care for him anymore. We were able to pull him and he is now living his foster life in sunny Florida! show less
