Meet Rizzo

This dog is currently out of state but will be transported to New England shortly with no additional travel costs. The long distance adoption process includes talking to the foster they are living with in the south. Roughly 90% of our dogs are successfully long distance adopted and 10% adopted locally.

**Please read Rizzo's entire profile, which includes a link to the adoption application at the end. Thank you!**

How can a girl with a smile this amazing not have had ONE SINGLE APPLICATION since last September? Let's get this gorgeous girl to a loving family!!!!

Meet Rizzo - an adorable just over 2 1/2 year old, 50 pound, Lab/Catahoula mix gal. Rizzo was a stray that ended up in the local shelter in Mississippi before coming into rescue.

Her foster shares "Rizzo is one stunning girl - with personality for days! She has a bold demeanor that says 'look at me and let me love you'. She loves to have you pet her and love on her. The more attention the better - and she will take it from ANYONE! She has never met a human she didn't like including loving kids. She will keep you entertained with her goofy personality and silly antics. Rizzo arrived into to rescue with a male companion (Rusty - posted through Great Dog also) and while she is ok with all dogs she seems to choose the male dogs as her besties. She is an energetic gal who loves playing outside, and running and playing chase with the other dogs. She will definitely want an active family to keep her happy. She is very smart and responsive to learning. She really wants to please her people. She is doing great using a doggie door to go to the bathroom outside - so she will just need a little structure to learn to tell you she has to go out. She is also doing well with her crate and leash walking using a harness. If you are looking for an active dog to keep you company and fill your days with doggie kisses this girl is definitely the one for you!

All dogs are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered at the time of adoption. All dogs require professional training to become the best family member they can be.

PLEASE READ: If a dog is listed, then s/he is currently available for adoption. Their information is correct to the best of our abilities and the information we have been given as of the day of posting. Please note, GDRNE does not guarantee the breed of any dog or puppy unless stated that we have run DNA. All breeds listed are educated estimates. Note that if the dog is listed as an "Out of town pet" there are NOT additional transport fees - it is included in our adoption fee Our dogs are rescued from various situations. It is most likely that both their parents were strays and even if not, mixes of some sort and that their grandparents were mixes as well. The dog may have some genetic material of an American Staffordshire Terrier (pit bull). The dogs are usually mixes of many breeds, making them a breed all their own - a True and adorable American MUTT. If you are interested in this dog, you must submit an application. Great Dog is not a shelter so there is no building you can visit. Our dogs live in private foster homes until adopted.
