Story
Ren is a new intake and is FLOURISHING in his foster home with his partner, Ariel. Ren was rescued from a very unfortunate situation with Ariel and their 4️⃣ puppies (aka the Breakfast Club pups). They have both been in their foster home for about a week and are thoroughly enjoying the inside life! 🕺 🐾Ren is a pretty chill guy. His fosters say he acts like a Great Dane, ready to play but also always ready to nap in the sun! 😴☀️ We just found out he is a water dog and loves to play with the hose and sprinklers! ⛲️ He is working on crate training and  house training currently and has pretty much got it! He is a quick learner and wants to please his humans. He’ll be so easy to train! ✨ 🐾Ren seems to have an issue with his vision in one or both eyes. He moves his head to the side to compensate. He does not seem to be bothered by it, he does not startle or become scared because of it. This could be congenital or due to poor nutrition for so long. Either way, he has the cutest little head tilt!🐾 🕺Ren would do well in a home with a female dog, as he is used to being with Ariel. He will require training an experienced handler. As these dogs have never known boundaries, his future family needs to understand that strict boundaries are a must to keep everyone safe. 🐾 🕺Ren is currently in Texas but can be transported within reason. He is a great boy that will be a fantastic addition to his future family! He will need time to decompress and relax at whatever home he goes to.

Story
Ariel is a new intake and she is FLOURISHING in her new foster home! Ariel was rescued from a very unfortunate situation with her buddy Ren and their 4 puppies (aka the Breakfast Club pups). They have both been in their foster home for about a week and are thoroughly enjoying the inside life! From her fosters: “Ariel is feisty, courageous, very puppy-like and very smart. She learned how to open up our back door latch the first day she was with us!” She is curious and likes to explore the house but never strays far from her humans, especially her foster dad. She is playful and initiates most of the play with Ren. She is working on being house trained and crate trained too! Ariel will do well with a playful, male dog in the home with her. She will need basic training and lots of exercise to ensure she doesn’t get herself into trouble. She is loving and will probably be a velcro Dogo, judging from the past week! She needs to gain about 10-20 pounds but is healthy otherwise. She will need strict boundaries to ensure she stays safe.

Story
Our sweetest Mama Demi is ready for her forever home! She was rescued on her euthanasia date, just hours before her time was up, from Riverside shelter. She was brought in as a stray to the shelter still lactating, skinny, dirty and estimated to be a senior mama. Although we don't know what her life was like before DC Dogos, we are so thankful we get to help write her future!  Demi is currently being fostered in El Paso Texas. She is around other Dogos and does tend to be selective, so slow intros to other male dogs are a must. She is great with children and all people. She does still get the zoomies even though it is assumed she is around 7 years old. She is up to date on vaccines and spayed and ready to go to her new home!  We do think that Demi is deaf (or close to it). This should be a consideration for her new home but is definitely something that can be worked with! Demi really just wants a soft bed to sleep on and humans to call her own! She is availabe for adoption and can be transported! Please open your home to this sweet senior. Sometimes our seniors get forgotten when there are puppies available but you will not regret sharing this sweet mama's golden years!

Story
Coco was rescued with her other half Bruno hours before they were set to be euthanized. Initially, we thought the pair would be a hospice case as Coco wouldn't eat and was declining quickly. Their amazing foster never left her side and nursed her back to health slowly but surely. Bruno never left Coco's side. After weeks of slow progress, Coco bounced back and is now a sweet loving girl. She loves walks and couch naps and most of all, loves being with Bruno. These two are a bonded pair and will only be adopted together. They need a loving home that will care for them for their golden years. We love our seniors and want to find a home that will appreciate and love them! They love people, have not been introduced to kids yet. They do well with other dogs with slow intros. They are calm and love naps! Located in Texas but will tranpsort for the right home

Story
Bruno was rescued with his other half Coco hours before they were set to be euthanized at a rural shelter in San Antonio Texas. It was assumed it would be a hospice case as both dogs seemed to decline quickly, especailly Coco. After days and nights of nursing both back to health, their amazing foster finally brought these two amazing Dogos back to health. They love playing around in the yard, going for walks and taking naps in the sun. They are tightly bonded and will only be adopted together.  They do well with people and other dogs, with slow intros. They need a family to love them through their golden years! Are you willing to give this wonderful pair a relaxing and loving home?

Story
This handsome boy was dumped with his girlfriend Bonnie at a strip mall in Texas several months ago. Thankfully, some Good Samaritans picked them up to keep them safe. Neither were chipped but obviously came from a home as they are sweet and friendly with people. Bonnie has found a family of her own and now Clyde is looking for his! Clyde is about 2-3 years old, neutered and up to date on shots. He’s very friendly, a little rambunctious and likes to zoom zoom. He will require an active home that will create boundaries. He does very well with female dogs after a slow intro and would do best with older kids, as he forgets his size sometimes. 💨 Are you looking for a big friendly guy to run, hang out and cuddle with? Clyde is your guy!! Located in Texas, will consider transport

Story
LOVES BELLY RUBS AND GIVES KISSESEst. DOB 10/8/18, Weight ~ 65 lbs I’m Buster, a sweet, happy, eager-to-please, playful Boxer/ Black Mouth Cur mix fella who loves “marathon” belly rubs and snuggling for hours with my human dad on the sofa or the bed. When he sits on the floor with me, I love to lie across his lap and give kisses. I’m very loyal and doting with my human dad, with whom I’ve bonded tremendously, and I follow him everywhere. I’m respectful and trustworthy with children outside the coffee shop and on walks. A bonus is that I have a very soft mouth when I take treats and toys. Speaking of walks, I love them! But, True Confessions – I’m working on my leash manners so I don’t get overly stimulated by cats, squirrels, or certain other dogs. I really enjoy the company of most other dogs, whether playing or lounging around together.  Moderate exercise not only stimulates me physically but mentally too. I’ve been through obedience training and I “sit,” “down,” and “place” on command (for the most part). The trainer says that I’m a quick learner because of my treat-motivation. I’ve had a rotating cast of dog walkers, and they all applaud how people-friendly I am. With proper introductions, I meet new people and strangers easily – with the exception of people who ring that annoying doorbell. I’ve come a long way from when I was rescued at BARC, Houston’s City shelter. You know, there are advantages to adopting an adult dog like me who’s past the stage of puppy-craziness. I’m crate-trained and know how to use the doggy door. I’m not a digger and I don’t destroy anything that isn’t a toy -- other than a couple of pillows. I’ve been a loving adopted canine brother for many months but now my canine brother's anxiety has gotten worse, to the point where it is hard for us to be together therefore it’s better that I find a new home since he was here first.  So, I’m available for adoption again! If you’re looking for a big, gentle boy who’s a bundle of love, I fit the bill!! And I’m flexible – I can live in an apartment as long as I get adequate exercise or a home with a backyard for chasing the tennis ball.  I’d love to be the star of the show and get all of your love, i.e., not have to share you with another dog in the home, but I’d still like going to Day Care, the dog park, and play dates with my canine friends. Arrange to meet me, and remember, I’ve never met a stranger!

If you would like more information about Beau or are interested in adopting him, please send an email to ddali007@yahoo.com My name is Beau, and let me tell you, life has been an adventure so far. My human mum, who I adored with all my heart, sadly passed away, leaving me in need of a new forever home. But don't you worry, because I'm ready to bring tons of love and joy into your life! Even though I'm 6 years old, I've still got some puppy energy coursing through my veins. Meeting new people gets me all kinds of excited, and I just can't contain my wiggles and tail wags. I'm a big softie at heart, and I'll show you just how sweet I am with cuddles and kisses. Toys, toys, toys – they're my absolute favorite! There's nothing that gets me more pumped up than a squeaky plushie or a game of tug-of-war. But you know what I love even more? Being with people. Whether we're playing together or just chilling out, I'm happiest when I'm by your side. I'm great with kids. They're like my little buddies, and I'll watch over them like a big brother. I've got sitting and shaking paws down pat. And when it comes to treats, well, let's just say I'm not picky – I'll scarf down anything you give me! What I love most about myself is how affectionate I am. There's nothing better than snuggling up with my favorite humans after a day of play. And let me tell you, my perfect day is pretty simple: lots of toy time followed by a tasty treat to munch on. So, if you're looking for a loyal companion who's equal parts loving and rambunctious, look no further than yours truly, Beau. I promise to fill your days with laughter, cuddles, and endless tail wags. Let's make some unforgettable memories together, shall we?
