Critter Chronicles: Rio

  • http-chronicle-northcoastnow-com-files-2012-03-rio-erie-shore-300x224


We just rescued Rio from the Lorain County Dog Kennel. He is friendly with everyone he meets and is a quiet, laid-back boy. I spent time with Rio the past couple of days to find out more about him and he is an excellent dog. He seems good with other dogs, didn't pay too much attention to a cat we took him by and is a very loveable guy. He is very, very friendly. He does need to put on some weight. He looks an awful lot like a German shepherd but we believe there is something else mixed in there. You will not be disappointed in this boy. He has all the shepherd smarts.
