Lola, Dogo Argentino
Lola is a winsome female Dogo Argentino dog being cared for at DC Dogos, Inc.
No other pets please: Lola is looking for a home without other dogs or cats. She's been vaccinated and spayed. No need to worry: Lola is already house-trained and crate-trained.
Lola's current caretakers say:
We are learning more about Lola during her stay with a foster family. While at the shelter, Lola won the hearts of all the volunteers and dog walkers. They reported that she is very friendly, affectionate, mellow and well-behaved. Lola was surrendered because her family was moving out of state. She's great with kids, loves to play in the yard and is a natural posing for photo shoots. If you like affection, she would make a great companion!

Tails is a sweet male greyhound dog being cared for at Bay Area Greyhound Adoptions, Inc.
Tails plays well with others, and he's happy to keep company with other dogs. Fear not: He's already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.
From Tails' current caretaker:
As you can see from Tails' photos, he is one beautiful greyhound. He raced his entire career at the Derby Lane track in St. Petersburg. Now, he loves his morning walks, favorite treats and squeaky toys. His other favorite pastime is running in the yard with his two greyhound companions. You will fall in love with this friendly, happy boy who will always be glad to see you.

Cocha, Dogo Argentino
Cocha is a female Dogo Argentino dog currently housed at DC Dogos, Inc.
Cocha has been vaccinated. She is a special needs pet, so she will need a family experienced with disabled pets. Please inquire about Cocha's specific care requirements.
From Cocha's current caretaker:
Cocha is a stunning, fabulous senior gal who is visually- and hearing-impaired. She is a retired hunting dog who is very well-behaved and eager to please. She would be content spending her silver years on the couch binging on Netflix and getting all the attention possible.
