Story
Marvelous Max has a very heartbreaking story. DC Dogos rescued Max on 9/11/2022 after he was found by a couple in the Orlando, FL area roaming on a rural road. We know that in July of 2022 he did not have any injuries as we tried to rescue him from his owner but were told he was rehomed. Sometime between July and September he was hurt, possibly hit by a car. He was sent to a foster home in Louisiana to have another vet evaluate his injury. Other vets in Florida recommended against surgery but we found a vet that was confident they could do the repair. Pins and mesh were added to repair the broken bone. Max developed an infection soon after surgery before dressing was removed. He was given antibiotics (no cultures). The infection continued to persist and caused the pins to push out and have to be removed. Cultures were done and new antibiotics were given. DC Dogos Rescue decided to take Max to a new vet for a second opinion and they cultured the wound and gave him the appropriate antibiotics as what he was originally prescribed were not effective. The infection persisted so we tried another round and he appeared to have healed and was cleared to start rehab. The day prior to rehab the foster noticed infection break through the skin so rehab was cancelled and another culture drawn showing the same bacterial growth- which we found out was from the mesh that was implanted in his leg! After some very long thought out decisions with many veterinarians, we all agreed that it was in Max's best interest to amputate the leg due to the resistance of the bacteria present and concern of further complications. Max has not used this leg much at all since he has been under our care. He is an active almost 2 year old boy who has done very well handling all that he has been dealt. UPDATE: Max had his surgery to amputate his leg and he is doing wonderful! He is walking around on 3 legs and happy as can be! Max is currently recovering in a neighboring state where his surgery was done. This is one Marvelous happy-go-lucky Max! 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!

The shelter worker spoke with me and we decided to look at the other available dogs. After visiting each potential animal, I went to Blinker's cage and he chose me and knew exactly how to tell me and let me know. We brought him home and it's as if he's been with us all along. READ MORE Ketner & Daisy Daily is a happy puppy and a loving puppy READ MORE Jennifer & Chanell When my daughter was 2 we adopted Wesley he was 1 year old Pekenease. He passed last year in September due to old age. The kids I have 15 year old daughter and a 16 year old step son who both love animals. My daughter has a Guinea pig named Apollo. But they wanted something more. Something they could interact with more, take for walks, run with them my daughter is very athletic. They could sleep with, snuggle, cuddle, give the most love too like we did Wes. Came across a few dogs. Didn't work out so when Chanell fell into our lap we knew we would be taking her home when we met her and let me tell you she is wonderful. She is very gentle, gives kisses loves to cuddle and slight playful. Just have to get use to how much bigger she is then Wesley was...lol, she is a very good dog. We just love her and is forever family member now! Kids love the heck out of her and so do I! Hubby is even happy with her minus the slight shedding she does...lol! She will be with us until the end of time! She is our fur baby! Spoiled to death by all of us!

Buzz is a male Boxer/Bull Terrier who was born about 9/2011. He is up to date on shots and neutered. Buzz is an alpha male and doesn't do well with another alpha male, but is good with female dogs and submissive males. He is good with kids. Buzz showed up in the parking lot of a salon one day, he thought he needed a haircut, but the salon staff thought he could do without a cut and dry so instead called our rescue to come help with this cute pup. Can you be the home for Buzz where he can get regular baths and blow dry so he doesn't have to wander the streets and find a salon on his own.

Story
Swiper is a female Boxer/bull terrrier mix. She was born aroung 05/2011. Swiper was so desperate to be part of a family, she dug her way into someone's yard. Yes, I said in, not out! Lucky for Swiper, she dug her way into a rescue worker's back yard. We tried to find Swiper's owners, but no one claimed her; and we were not surprised. Swiper might be a bit shy at first, but she warms up very quickly when she learns you are friend and not foe. Swiper has tested negative for heartworms, has been brought up to date on shots, is spayed and microchipped. Swiper does well with other dogs, cats, and children. Will you be Swiper's new family that she has been frantically searching for?
