Facts about Dawson

  • Breed: Dogo Argentino/Pit Bull Terrier Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Dawson is a happy, wiggly, good-natured 4-5 year-old, 60-pound, male, Dogo Argentino mix looking for a loving guardian. Rescued from Kendall County, Illinois, where he was brought in as a stray, Dawson had a rough start in life as someone had cropped his ears by cutting them with scissors and kept him outside with a rope around his neck. Dawson hit the jackpot by being chosen to participate in a training program at the Shedd Aquarium, were he has performed in their One World show under the name of Kobe. After spending a year and a half in the program, he is now a very well trained boy and is ready to find his forever home. Among his tricks he can sit on command, do a down command, walk nicely on a leash, give paw and other tricks on command like sitting on his hind legs and turning in circles. When not performing, he enjoys the company of other dogs and absolutely loves people! He has even been good with the otters! He is a playful, sweet boy that is very food motivated and would love someone that could continue with his training and daily exercise.

Dawson is very healthy, neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm tested and on monthly preventative. To meet and possibly adopt Dawson or to get an adoption application, please contact Melia at melia88@comcast.net. His adoption donation of $200 benefits the rescued dogs of Lucky Dog Rescue. He is currently located at the Shedd Aquarium and would love to retire and have a forever home to call his own!

About Lucky Dog

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a very small group of independent dog rescuers. All of the dogs that are available for adoption were saved from needlessly being euthanized in high kill shelters. Once a dog is brought into our care, it receives all of the vetting that is necessary including a spay/neuter surgery, HW test, and vaccinations. A foster home is then provided for the dog until a forever adoptive home can be found. When a foster home is not available, the dogs will be placed in paid boarding until they are adopted.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of these dogs are currently located in foster homes or paid boarding either in Chicago, IL or surrounding areas. An appointment can be made to view any of the animals at the convenience of the potential adopter and the foster.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for each of the dogs is $200.00. That is to cover the cost of getting the animal spayed/neutered, HW tested and completely UTD on vaccinations. An adoption application can be obtained by contacting us by email at melia88@comcast.net. Once the application has been received and reviewed, a meet and greet will be arranged with your family and the dog you are interested in. A home visit will also be done prior to any adoption being completed.
