Although it says "experienced owner", Rio is really a lap dog a heart very playful, good to walk. Rio doesn't like his harness being put on still, but he is getting there. Good with visitors, yet still not sure with people on the streets. Travels well in car. Rio is eager to learn, however he is not fully house trained. Rio likes to chew things he shouldn't, but that is just a training issue. He is being a typical 9 month old puppy. Rio has progressed so far, that he now could go into a family home with childen 10+.
Rio was one of two puppies attacked, kicked and beaten regularly by people within the community. Why they attacked him and the other pup we don’t know, but we can be very sure it is because they were the smallest and the more nervous of the pups there, and being cowardly as always the attackers saw them as easy targets. Through their physical and mental strength they survived, but Rio has been left very nervous of people, backing away with his tail between his legs at first from anyone new.
