Pet Of The Week: Meet Rio!

Studio 512

Rio is a 4-year-old Great Dane mix in need of a foster superhero (or adopter!) to get him out of the shelter and into a loving home.

He’s a really special dog who is looking for that special person who understands him. His ideal home setup is an adult-only home that doesn’t have too many new visitors over all the time. He’d be a great companion for a couple that’s looking for an adventure dog! Rio LOVES to swim and loves to play fetch.

Rio listens to commands– currently he’s mastered Sit, Down, Place, and has excellent leash manners. He’s affectionate and will ask for belly rubs all day long (when he’s not swimming or playing fetch, that is). Rio is also housetrained and crate trained — an absolute superstar in the home!
