Mastiff Rescues

Postby maberi » January 8th, 2009, 11:56 am

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.

Any suggestions?

Ha!! You just made me spit my water out

I can barely handle a 30 lb pup much less one that weighs almost as much as me. He really is one of the sweetest, goofiest guys I have ever met but something tells me Earl and Kayden wouldn't appreciate him trying to mount them (soon to be neutered)

Thanks!

I'm going to get some pics of him on Saturday. I need Heidi to come out with me so she can snap a few while I try to keep that guy still for 2 seconds.

He came in the with name Diesel but has since been renamed to Huey
