About Rio

Adoption Fee: 100$
German Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

This is Rio! He is a 95 pound, 2 year old German shepherd (may have some other breed mixed in). He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. I am heart broken to have to rehome him as he is truly an amazing dog! He does suffer from allergies (though I have found his main allergy seems to be chicken). I adopted Rio at 3 months old, as he was found abandoned on the reservation in New Mexico and was offered to me on the street. Rio is an amazing dog with so much potential. Though due to him being attacked by an off leash dog at 4 months old, he developed dog reactivity. He would do better in home without kids, dogs, or cats. He is very cuddly, and extremely sweet. Though with me being in college again now, and working full time, I have found that I no longer have the time or resources to give him the life he deserves. He needs someone with a backyard. He needs help with training on how to interact with other people better. If given the right environment, exercise, training, time, and love, Rio would strive!!
