Rio is a very high energy boy. He loves his humans. He is super snuggly and sweet. He loves to play but needs older children as he comes with a little baggage. He does not like having things taken from him which can be a problem because he tends to help himself to whatever he wants. This issue can be resolved with consistent training. All around Rio needs training. He is an extremely smart dog and very that motivated. This dog is trainable for sure. We have decided he would be best in a home with no other dogs or possibly one dog that is very calm and submissive. He chases small animals so no cats or chickens for this guy either. He has a lot of anxiety being in a crate but we have been working with him on this. Rio is a dog that needs to be the center of his family's world, he wants to go on adventures and spend time doing things to keep him busy. He loves toys of all kinds and especially loves big stuffed animal toys. Rio requires a 6 foot fenced yard and that isn't something we can waiver on. He needs som basic house manners as he gets things off the counters and can clear baby/pet gates with ease. Rio is 100% worth the effort in training I promise you that. This is a smart dog and will be an amazing companion with a little consistency and structure.
