Rio was highly intelligent and loved to work and be challenged. He used to regularly go for fun runs in harness, and was a proven weight puller, having pulled a personal best of 23.75 times his body weight in competition (inside venue on carpet).He had the sweetest temperament, was a terrific influence on our young adults and is just a cool dog to be around.
