03-12-16 GONE TO BRIDGE – Daisy is an absolutely gorgeous Neapolitan Mastiff who is in desperate need of a new home. She is 1 year old and needs lots of exercise, so when her family found out they needed to move to the city, they were heartbroken. Daisy needs more than a small apartment. She would love a large fenced in yard where she can run and play. Having a large breed dog is a big commitment, and unfortunately when you can’t keep that commitment, it’s the dog that pays the price. Our hope is that we can find Daisy a loving home so that this transition will minimally affect her, and she will settle in quickly to her new forever home.

Daisy is a mere 95 pound ball of love. She loves to lie on your feet when she is not chewing on her toys. She does great in a crate, is housebroken and is fantastic with children. Daisy is a dominant female, but gets along fine with the other dogs she has been around. Car rides make her nervous, but she is young and can learn with time to be comfortable with them.

Daisy has many years ahead of her to be a loving and faithful companion to a family who will include her in their active life. She has so much love to give, will you open your home to Daisy?

 This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794 for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.


ABOUT THE BREED
Mastiffs rarely bark or make noise. When you come home, you’re likely to find yours stretched out on a bed or couch, their head perking up lazily to greet you. If you can get them off the couch, they’re always game for a roll on the carpet.

Mastiffs have few equals when it comes to protecting the family. They have been used as guard dogs for thousands of years. However, Mastiffs are more likely to scare off an intruder with their intimidating size—they are not the types to make a fuss unless there’s a real threat.

CHILDREN & PETS
The Mastiff is noted for its calm and stable disposition.  It is an even tempered dog that is exceptionally devoted to its family.  It is wonderfully gentle with both children and other pets.  This breed is calm, sensitive, docile, good natured, self-confident, patient, stoic and most of all, affectionate!

PERSONALITY
Steady and solid as an oak tree, the Neo is a guardian rather than an attack dog. He’s always alert and aware, even if it looks like he’s relaxing.If you aren’t home, they simply won’t let anyone onto your property. And really, who’s going to argue with them?

When you welcome someone, though, your Neo will accept that person as well, although he’ll probably remain aloof. This isn’t a “hail fellow, well met” kind of dog.

The Neo is affectionate toward his family, but he’s also strong-willed — and big enough to have his own way. Begin training early, be firm and consistent, and use positive reinforcement techniques, such as praise and food rewards.

  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs
  • Always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • THIS IS YOUR JOB, NOT THE DOG

IMPORTANT POINTS ABOUT PACK LEADERS
It is a natural instinct for a dog to have an order in its pack, therefore, the only way your relationship with your dog can be a complete success you must be the pack leader:

  • When we humans live with dogs, we become their pack
  • The entire pack cooperates under a single leader
  • Lines are clearly defined and rules are set
  • Dogs communicates his displeasure with growling and eventually biting
  • Humans MUST be higher up in the order than the dog.
  • The humans must be the ones making the decisions, not the dogs.

HOUSE-TRAINING
Schedule Feeding Time – Find your dog’s schedule so that you can work with that

  • Feed your dog on a regular schedule time, always within a half hour of the time

 Schedule Water – Help your dog bee successful

  • Keep a schedule for water, however, you should design a schedule that fits you
    • Remove the water dish after the first feeding in the morning
    • After the night feeding, leave water dish for two hours, then take it up
    • Before your last walk for the night, put the water dish down about an hour before
    • Then walk your dog 45 minutes after he has had water. There will might be days where that might be an exception for water.

 Schedule Walking Time – Find your dog’s schedule, then gently move it to your schedule.

  • Start by taking the dog out every two hours for two days, if he goes every two hours,
  • Then take him out every three hours, for two days,
  • until you reach the time frame you need – every six hours—eight hours etc

The biggest problem is once a dog has had one accident in the house, there is a urine smell that the dog detects and his instinct to continue mark where he smells urine. This is how wild dogs let other dogs know that this territory is taken and for dogs not in the pack to go elsewhere. If you keep the house clean and pour some urine outside where you want him to go and then praise him when he marks there you will find house-breaking goes very easily.
