Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
Notes from Foster
Housetrained? yes, but marks in house and loses control of bladder when excited
Experience with dogs? Submissive, better one on one
Experience with cats? Submissive, fearful but curious of cats, not aggressive
Experience with kids? Good with kids
Leash training? Really good on leash. Tension on leash when excited, knows sit, comes when called, somewhat knows stay. Knows- NO.

Affection Level: Extremely affectionate, asks for attention. Great cuddler, follows you around the house and stays close.
Play Behavior: Rio likes to chew, run and chase
Activity Level: Fairly active
Adjectives: Cuddly, goofball, skittish
Rio loves belly rubs, he's loyal and affectionate. Loves people!
Ideal home: A patient family who can give him adequate exercise and attention with outdoor space. He might be happier as an only dog and needs lots of attention. He's okay with cats,-- he's more of the scaredy cat himself & gives them space.
