RIO is a gorgeous, young, Mastin-cross pup, with a short, unusual, dark brown tan and white coat.

This lovely young man is only 8 months old.
He was found in the riverbed with his siblings – all hungry and starving.
Rio can walk nicely on a lead, but he is a strong dog and still pulls a little, so he requires continued puppy training.
We think he was badly treated as a puppy, as although he is fine once he knows you, initially he is a little nervous around strangers. He is fine with other dogs, and loves people
We would suggest he is homed with a younger active family and no small children or cats. Beautiful looking dog.

His Best Points :

His loving nature and his friendly disposition.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog

Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance  FREE, to be activated from the link on our website.

All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.

For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas

This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
