Hello, My Name Is:


What's My Story?

Rio is a very sweet young girl. She's so soft and fluffy and a delightful personality to match. Rio would love to find a new family to love. If you have a canine companion, the shelter can help with dog intros to make sure the dogs are compatible. Rio arrived at Faithful Friends September 2017 as one of our New Mexico transport dogs. She was just a baby around 4 months old. Rio was sick, had a contagious skin infection and took quite some time to recover so she spent the first few months at the shelter. Rio has been adopted and returned twice. While she is a very sweet dog, she has a lot of playful puppy energy. She is still a puppy and she's looking for a new best friend who can dedicate time to helping her be the best dog she can be.   

The best way to find your perfect match is to visit the shelter and meet the dog in person and speak with one of our adoption counselors. Adoption applications are only processed after you've met the dog. The shelter is open Wednesday thru Friday from 1 to 7pm and Saturday from noon to 5pm. Please visit for more information. Email with any questions.
