About Rio:
Rio was one of 6 Anatolian Shepherds rescued by Sunny Day Acres. She was the last to be given up, she was very scared and shy. After a lot of work, Rio has done a 180 and is a perfect companion. Taylor says that she has learned resilience from Rio and that huge dogs can just be gentle giants. Her son absolutely adores Rio and completes their family. Rio’s dramatic flops to get belly rubs crack the family up everyday. They say she is perfect for this category!
