Anyone know of any reputable Mastiff rescues in the North East? We have a Mastiff (Bull, American, not really sure) at the shelter right now. He was a seizure on a neglect case. He spent the first 1.5 of his life on a short chain and was brought in emaciated to say the least (he was a giant bag of bones). The shelter has done a wonderful job putting weight on him but because of the lack of socialization early on, he needs quite a bit of work.
He is a SUPER sweet, happy dog but he is basically like a 150 lb puppy now (lots of jumping, playful mouthing, etc..)
They are trying to figure out what their options are with him. I've started working with him a bit and he is getting better but he needs a bit of work and a few hours a week just isn't enough.
