A Retriever with Terrier, American Pit Bull mix
Rio is such a amazing pup. He loves to go outside and play in the kiddy pools with water. He splashes in the pool especially if there is a tennis ball in there. He is ok for a bath, he does not love the bath, but he lets you do it. He likes to take his bones and treats and burry them in the dirt. He will dig a hole and then cover them up for later. He is a big cuddle bug who loves to lay on you and lean on your legs and lay in your lap. I think he believes he is a lap dog. He walks well on a leash, but if he is excited he does pull some. He will sit for a treat and is treat motivated. In the kennel he does bark at new people he does not know but outside the kennel he is a completely different dog who longs for a forever home. We believe he is good with other dogs, but we suggest meet and greets just for certain.

Volunteer Carl and Michelle had this to say about Rio
"Rio, poor boy, the only dog not adopted at a past event we went to. He was a wild man getting out of his kennel but in the play yard, he was much calmer and enjoyed a good brushing. He was interested in digging and treats. He liked attention from us, but was not super affectionate. I think though that he'd be a loving dog with the right family."
