My story

Sierra is a new intake and we are learning more about her and we will update more later.

She is fully deaf and would need a home that is experenced with dogos and/or deaf dogs. If the home has other dogs they would need to be super friendly and able to tolerate a deaf dog that cannot hear cues during play. If you would like to learn more about deaf dogs and how they make wonderful pets please visit deafdogsrock.com for information!

Dogos are a wonderful breed but we urge anyone interested to dig in and do a lot of research before
deciding if they are a good fit for your home. They require a lot of attention and training with them
never ends! Boundaries must be enforced and they often need reminders as they push past boundaires
you set! Dogos are loving, kind and gentle but don't mistake that for weakness because they are equally
powerful and intense as well! Everyone in the home must be on board with having a dogo and play a
major role in their daily routines and training. Yes it is work, but the rewards are ten-fold! Lazy homes
don't work for dogos as they need stimulation, exercise, and lots of attention too during their younger
years. Our goal in rescue is to be as transparent as we can about each and every dog plus make sure new
families really understand the needs of a dogo!

Additional adoption info

Adopters fill out our online application and screening goes through 4 phases including a home check. If approves we match adopter with a dog and they sign our adoption contract. All our dogs are vetted and chipped before being adopted. We also offer to cover initial training session with their new dog and encourage them to continue training.
