Rio is a 68lb (31kg) big ebony boy coming to us mid March! He will be one of 3 dogs on our maiden voyage from China! Rio is a 1.5 year old lab mix. His mother, a yellow lab, was rescued from a dog meat truck headed to the slaughterhouse. She was anemic, extremely ill, and pregnant at time of rescue. Luckily, she was saved and Rio was born into the shelter along with 4 other pups. His mother and siblings were all adopted. Poor Rio doesnt deserve to be left behind.

Rio is great with other animals and is a gentle giant! He is housebroken as well. Please let us know as soon as possible if you can commit to fostering him! 

We are desperate for sponsorship! Flying Rio to the states will cost $2000. This does not include other fees and permit charges.
