Libby, Labrador retriever and boxer mix
Libby is a winsome female Labrador retriever and boxer mix being cared for at St. Francis Society Animal Rescue.
Libby is looking for a cat-free home. She is already spayed, vaccinated and house-trained. Libby is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.
Here's what Libby's friends at St. Francis Society Animal Rescue think of her:
Libby is five years old and, sadly, was surrendered by her owners because she had gained some weight. In foster care for the last three years, she wants nothing more than to cuddle up with you. Libby struggles with separation anxiety and a fear of thunderstorms and is shy around men, but if you want loads of love, she is the girl for you.

Oliver, Dogo Argentino
Oliver is a male Dogo Argentino dog being cared for at DC Dogos, Inc.
Oliver will get along great with other dogs. He is looking for cat-free family. Good news: Oliver is already house-trained. He has already had all of his shots, and he is neutered.
Notes from Oliver's caretakers:
We named this good-hearted orphan after a Charles Dickens novel. We're so happy that we were able to save him. His current foster family tell us that Oliver is very well-mannered, walks nicely on a leash and enjoys laying by their feet and chewing on his antler. We've also heard that he likes relaxing to both classical and reggae music. Please research the Dogo breed before applying.

Dash, Dogo Argentino
Dash is a male Dogo Argentino dog currently residing at DC Dogos, Inc.
Dash has been vaccinated and neutered. However, he has some special needs, so please inquire about his specific requirements.
Notes from Dash's caretakers:
Dash is a new intake, but we've learned this three-year-old boy is friendly and energetic. He gets along well with dogs but not cats. While undergoing heartworm treatment, Dash's medical expenses will be covered by the rescue. We ask that interested adopters research the Dogo breed before completing an application.
