Much like a Brazilian pro soccer player Rio was an athlete, a Canadian sled dog. His life was full of adventure and playing hard but he is looking for a quieter life now that he is retired. He is 63 lbs of sweetheart who loves his head rubbed and is learning belly rubs are awesome too.

While Rio is eager to please, he doesn’t always know how so he would do well with another friendly dog pal to show him the ropes. As his confidence increases, Rio is showing just how much he loves going for car rides and getting out for walks.  Rio is an elderly guy whose life as an athlete means he has developed arthritis and is currently on daily medication which helps his comfort level.  At night, Rio sleeps in a crate and as long as he gets outside regularly, he has few accidents in the house. He’s gentle and curious but unsure and needs a family who can give him attention and help him continue to build his confidence. He’s good with people and other dogs and is very food motivated!

If you have a calm quiet home with another dog buddy to provide Rio with an enjoyable retirement, please fill out an application today!
