Hi everybody, it's your boy Rio here! I am currently being fostered in Tennessee and I am a sweet and curious 1.5 year old boy and I'm looking for my forever home! I was picked up by animal control and my family never came for me. But don't be sad, because an awesome shelter contacted SEGSP and I have been a happy boy while in foster care. In fact, I ALWAYS seem to be happy, and my foster mom says I'm just an awesome dog!
I want to tell you all about me because I'm ready to find my people! I am sweet and cuddly and I have been known to sniff your pocket if you're hiding a treat in there. What can I say? I have a great nose! I will go into my crate on my own and like hanging out and even sleeping in there. I am also housebroken and I've been working on getting used to a leash. I don't even seem to mind the rain when outside.
I also just LOVE PEOPLE! And I get a bit excited and jump when I see them. I promise I am working hard on jumping and respecting personal space. Because I'm still a pup, I have a LOT of energy. I love to run and play outside with my foster sister, Hannah, and foster brother, Brewer. I absolutely love to be loved on, and my applicants must be super snuggly and have an endless supply of toys and bones--sorry, but that last one is non negotiable! My favorite toy is a simple ball and I will just PLAY, PLAY, PLAY with it as long as you are willing. I've been exposed to a kitten and did well. I ride well in the car and have even learned commands such as Come and Down and will even Sit, especially for a treat! ;-)
My perfect home would be one with an active family that can keep up with my energy and curiosity, and I'd just love to have a brother or sister so that we can run and play together. I'm a big boy, weighing in at 58 pounds. I'd do best in a home without small children. I am sweet and cuddly and just live for human attention. If you want a dog that will be the best companion ever, I'm your guy! My foster mom says I'm just full of love.
Because I'm fully vetted, neutered and up to date on all vaccinations, my adoption fee is $375.
I can't wait to meet you. I would love to love you forever! Could you love me?
