Rio (in honor)

*We raised Rio out of our Joy by Mr. Bubba Dees' Duke. He is a wonderful boy and at 26 months old, he weighs 60 lbs and is 24" at shoulder. His temperament and personality are excellent. Rio is a larger boned dog. Rio was born April 9th, 2011. We look forward to watching Rio fill out completely in the next year. He loves to alert to strangers and knows how to sit and "give paw". He is a very biddable dog, smart, loving, alertive, understanding, with a natural herding drive. His full registered name is Wilson's Rio De Janero, and we call him Rio. He is registered through ESCR. His dam is Wilson's Green Mountain Joy and sire is John Wayne 'The Duke.'

RIP MY SWEET BUDDY, RIO, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE LOVED AND MISSED <3
