Rio & Dino Needs a Home

About Rio & Dino

These two beautiful dogs are now in foster looking for a forever home. They would love to be rehomed together!

The owner has lost their home, both are very much loved dogs!!

Rio is a seven year old female who has an amazing temperament. She is a very pampered pooch, loves cuddles and loves to sleep in bed with humans. She isn’t very good with other dogs apart from Dino as she has had some bad experiences with other dogs when she was younger. She likes to play with balls and is very bouncy when she meets new people.

Dino we think is around 12 years old. He was rescued by his previous owners so Dino will be looking for a third home. He is very calm and laid back and loves cuddles and kiss humans!
He loves meeting new people and he loves to be with Rio. He gets upset if no one is around and will follow you everywhere. He can hear food from a hundred miles away!

Both dogs are from a home where children have been around and can be rehomed with children over the age of 6 as per our policy.

Both dogs like to chase cats and other small furries so would prefer to be the only animals in the home.

Rio is the white dog and Dino is the white and black dog

Please contact the rescue if you are interested.

Home checks and vet checks apply.
