Rio's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Rio's Story...
There is SO much to tell you about Rio.

We found him at a City shelter with two cherry eyes and a dermoid in his left eye. He was 40 pounds underweight, hunched over, hiding in corners, flinching when anyone came near him. And we found out he had been abandoned by his people

Definitely a Dawg Squad dog!

3 eye surgeries later, 4 weeks of foster care, and Rio is finally coming out of his shell. He's more confident, gaining weight and beginning to explore his world.

Rio still has his quirks. After he finishes eating he takes his food bowl to bed with him as if he's afraid someone will take his bowl (food) away. And he still prefers sleeping in corners, so that's where his fosters put his bed. Baby steps.

Rio is great with all dogs, good with cats and fabulous with kids. He's amazing!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rio, a West Los Angeles Neapolitan Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Neapolitan Mastiff for sale in West Los Angeles, or seeking a Neapolitan Mastiff dog from a breeder in West Los Angeles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in West Los Angeles already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a West Los Angeles breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Neapolitan Mastiff breeders who help with Neapolitan Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in West Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
