Pet of the Week

Rio, as his name ("river") suggests, is a mellow guy who likes to go with the flow — regarding all people and other dogs with friendliness.

Found as a stray, this approximately 2-year-old pit bull is likely mixed with some Labrador or golden retriever. Rio's calmness is notable in a young dog and his relaxed nature is apparent from the photo, where he is seen lounging in the sunshine. For a larger dog (45 pounds), Rio is easy to walk on leash, attentive to commands and not a barker.

This handsome and healthy boy has already been neutered. He is a favorite with shelter volunteers and would make an outstanding family pet. Rio would love to bring his cheerful spirit into your household this summer and all seasons thereafter. His adoption fees are discounted 50% all week when you mention this announcement.
