He is full of beans and always up for fun.

And today Rio is looking to bring his fun and lively spirit to a new home.

A spokesman at Dogs Trust Snetterton, where Rio is currently staying, said: “Handsome Rio is a bouncy boy, full of beans and always up for fun.

“He loves everything, including treats, his toys and learning new things. This enthusiastic boy needs very patient owners who are willing to put in time with him to ensure he is provided with adequate physical and mental stimulation.

“Rio has a lot of potential and needs the right owners to bring this out. His ideal home will be adult-only and have access to quiet walks, he will need to be the only pet in the home.

“Once settled, Rio will make a fun and loyal companion.

Anyone interested in giving Rio a new home should call Dogs Trust Snetterton on 0300 303 0292 or visit

Dogs Trust has a network of 20 rehoming centres in the UK and one in Dublin. The charity cares for around 15,000 strays, unwanted and abandoned dogs each year.
