Ridge is a 10 month old Dogo Argentio mix male. He is such a sweetheart. When he first arrived to his foster home it was apparent that being inside a home was a little new to him.. He was timid and scared but he has come such a long way in the last few months. He comes out of his shell when the other dogs are around, as it seems to give him confidence. We would love to see him go to a home with other dogs to play with him and help him continue to grow his confidence!
Ridge likes to play with both males and females, he does well with all dogs and kids! He is what we call a little velcro dog that wants to follow his humans around and has mastered snuggling. Because Ridge is fearful he would do best in a home where his people like to stay in. He is working on building the confidence to go for walks but is still very uncomfortable leaving the front door. He is also fearful when people approach him through a fence so a privacy fence would be in his best interest. He is up to date on shots and neutered and ready to find his forever home. We do not know how he does with cats at this time. If you would like to adopt him, please apply here!
