Russo is being sponsored by Lucky Dog Rehab and CPAA.  He’s joining HOPE on 01/14/2022.  He is a 2-3 year old Great Dane/Cane Corso mix and is 86lbs.  He’s prefers female dogs, and can be selective with male dogs.  He currently needs some help learning to walk nicely on a leash, but already knows a few basic cues.  Even though his previous home neglected him, he still LOVES people, including kids, and loves to cuddle!


01/21/2022  Russo has been in the prison just a week and has already made quite an impression.  He’s big and gorgeous!  He is learning very quickly, but gets his own ideas sometimes.  He loves to be by my side and is definitely a cuddlebug.  He already knew “sit” and “paw” when I got him, and he has already learned down, touch, look at me, heel, side, stay, and wait.  He is getting used to his new environment and watches everything around him.  He likes to bark at me if he feels that I am not giving him enough loving!  He likes to give kisses and hugs.  He also thinks that his food and your food are both his.  LOL.  He doesn’t like being in a crate, but we are working on that by crating him only for short periods, even when I am here, so he doesn’t see the crate as a big deal.  He much prefers female dogs, but prefers male humans.  He is a VERY cool dog, and I can’t wait to see how he grows in HOPE.
