RIO – Mini Lab Mix / 13 months / 12.6 kg / M-Neutered
Say hello to the adorable Rio! He’s settling into his foster home really well, and we’re learning more about this chill guy. Rio absolutely loves people. He likes to get attention from them and has shown no shyness to anyone he has met. He even met a toddler and was calm, joyful and playful. Rio hasn’t shown much interest in toys yet, but does love to cuddle and be pet. He has great recall as well! So far, he’s medium energy, and likes to go for walks but loves to curl up for a nice nap after. Rio is house trained, and walks well on a leash (he’s improving each day!)
The ideal home for Rio is one where he has people home most of the time, as he loves to follow his foster mom everywhere. He would do fine in an apartment, not just because of his smaller size, but his energy level also makes it fitting. He hasn’t had much interaction with other pups in Canada yet, though he reacted well when he came across some canine friends in the elevator. We do know he loves to lead his crew, so where he has the opportunity to have canine pals, we prefer that they not be bossy. He also passed his cat test in Mexico and thinks they would make good playmates.
