From the Foster: Rio is an adorable puppy that loves attention, a good belly rub, playing ball, and is a very happy easy going dog. He could use some training, although he does know some basic commands like sit and shake.  He gets along with dogs well, cats unknown. You wouldn't know that he has a disease, he doesn't let that slow him down. After doing a bit of research online Addison's disease is a pretty easy disease to control. He sleeps in his kennel, and is kenneled when we are away. He is house trained, we have had zero issues in the house.

Rio does have Addison's but that doesn't slow him down at all! This is controlled with an injection done by the vet once a month!

Hello! I recently arrived to SHH. They will update more as they get to know me!
