~CL - Rio (Mix) Medium - Male

Rio is an 8 ½ year old German Short Haired Retriever and Lab Mix who weighs about 70 lbs. His current people have had him since 2013 but are moving to a home where there are cats. Rio considers them prey and must be placed in a home with no cats or birds, and also with no chickens where he would be able to get to them. They will also be working long hours at a new job and he is a dog that would not do well alone for long periods. He currently lives in a home with another dog and gets along with both male and female dogs. He has worked with a trainer so minds verbal commands, is good on a leash and rides well in cars. He is also house trained and crate trained. In a previous home he was abused by a teen boy so is anxious and afraid when first meeting young men, but does slowly come around once he knows they are not going to hurt him.

He is a very affectionate and loving dog who just needs to be in a home where he has human company much of the time and dogs only as other pets in the household.

Our adoption fee of $125.00 helps cover expenses (vaccinations, spay/neuter, food, housing) for the homeless pets we rescue. UAF does not ship our adoptables out of state and to ensure the best fit, UAF conducts a home visit to meet other pets and verify a safe, secure yard.
(CL) means courtesy listing...this pet remains with their family while up for adoption.
