Facts about Rio/Foster Needed

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Rio would like a foster home with loving folks and maybe a very patient smaller dog to teach him all that dog stuff!!!

Rio is our BLIND Harl boy who is now 5 1/2 - 6 months. He is being treated for Valley Fever. He has a compromised rear end. He cannot have another dog jump on him or ram into him! No big dogs in his future. He tends to be oral when excited so small children would not be a good idea! We believe Rio has a learning disability!

We will be doing more x-rays in the next couple of weeks to check on his progress. This sweet, beautiful soul has been through so much and just keeps on smiling and chugging along, like the little engine that could!!! He is an amazing puppy. He would greatly benefit from a foster home. If you have a fenced pool for hydrotherapy that would be very beneficial!!! Who is willing to help this beautiful boy???

Rio was found in the desert along the border and a wonderful vet in Rio Rico took him in. He treated Rio for Puppy Strangles and a few other problems due to exposure.

Please contact the Alliance for more info! Thank you.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Rescue is done by volunteers/fosters who are dedicated to helping the danes in Arizona find a FOREVER home. We do not have a shelter for you to visit as everyone works out of their homes. We have several reputable rescues that are currently working with the Alliance. Only those rescues that abide by and follow the Alliance criteria are allowed to post the danes they have available, on our site.

Our Volunteers and Foster parents are most valuable. We could not do this without you. If you are not sure a dane is for you, fostering is a great way to find out. Our Fosters help a dane by making them part of their family and caring for them until they are adopted. Fosters help us save lives! Thank you all!

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting your dane through the rescuers with the Alliance assures you a dane that has been temperament tested, altered and vet checked. We require a home check and a meet & greet with all family members whether they are 2 or 4 legged! There is an adoption contract and fee.
