I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Gender: Female, spayed
Breed: Dogo Argentino mix
When Cargo first arrived here at New Lease on Life as a stray, we didn’t think she would be with us for long. We thought surely her owner would call the very next day, eager to take her back home, but to our amazement, we never received that call.
Now Cargo is looking for a new home to call her own, and whoever ends up adopting her is going to think the same way we did when she first arrived, “How could anyone give this dog up?”
Don’t miss her video!
Cargo is impeccably trained. Obviously her former owner spent a lot of time with her. She already knows Sit, Shake, Stay and Down and obeys with the ease of much practice. Most likely, she’s been through formal obedience training, or she had a very dedicated owner.
Besides being fully trained, Cargo is so gentle. She takes treats with such a soft mouth that even the smallest child can feed her. In fact, she’s wonderful with children of all ages, so she was probably raised around them. Her ease around children has made her a popular dog with our junior volunteers who think it’s great that she even listens to their commands.
We believe Cargo is a Dogo Argentino mix. From the front she appears pure white, but when you see her from the back, she has the black spots on her skin, but not her fur, that are characteristic of a Dogo. She is not full Dogo size however, weighing in at only 55 pounds and already full grown.
Dogo Argentinos are a breed that many people have not heard of before, so here is a bit of information about the breed. Often mistaken for Pitbulls in shelters, Dogo Argentinos are actually a hunting breed that was specifically bred to accompany a hunter into the field then return home with him and be extremely gentle with their human family. You can read more about the breed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogo_argentino
Cargo is excellent with other dogs, both big and small, and has also been exposed to cats.
You can meet Cargo at the shelter any time during adoption hours, Thursday through Sunday 5 to 8pm, or call 330–397–8270 to schedule an appt to see her at another time or on another day. She is already spayed, heartworm tested (negative) and on preventative, fully vaccinated, dewormed and flea treated, so she is ready to go home with your family right way. Come to meet her today!
