Pet of the Week : Rio


Three year old American bulldog Rio lives in Tamfourhill with owner Adele Newman and daughter Heidi (6).

The fun loving bitch joined the family when she was 11 months and now they can’t imagine life without her.

Rio loves swimming in the canal, chasing squirrels - although she is never successful in her pursuit - and playing with all her doggy friends. She gets on really well with Heidi and Adele’s mum’s dog Rudi, a Weimaraner.
