Our vet has recommended that all dogs under 6 months not to spay or neuter the pups because they are too young and their bodies are not fully developed.  Adoption donation includes transport and all vaccinations, except for the Lyme—therefore, the dogs will not need to get any vaccinations for the first

ADOPTED ON 10-16-21 Meet the very handsome Rufus, a guy that will steal your heart!. We are desperately trying to help find this sweet boy a new forever home due to very tragic circumstances in his current home. He is very much loved, but cannot stay, and we would love to rehome him so he can continue being the great little pup that he is! 

RUFUS LOVES TO RUN * NEEDS FENCE AND ANOTHER DOG

Rufus originally came to us as “Ford”, a very smart and playful puppy who loves to snuggle and be with his people. A wonderful home was quickly found, and though his family is heartbroken over this, they tell us that Rufus is well-behaved, completely house-broken, crate trained, and simply a delight. They have thoroughly enjoyed their few months with him, and will miss him terribly. Rufus is a Danish Mastiff mix, and about 6 months old now. He is up to date with all shots, but has not yet been neutered. Rufus has been doing very well in his puppy classes, too!

RUFUS LOVES TO PLAY * LOTS OF ENERGY *
NEEDS A HOME THAT CAN MAKE SURE HE GETS LOTS OF EXERCISE

 

When considering adding a new member to the family it is important to research breeds so that everyone, including the new pup, is comfortable and happy. The Danish Mastiff is quite friendly, watchful, and loving. He or she is also quite large, often topping off at 90-150 pounds! They are strongly built with a wide, massive head.  Mastiffs were always known to be protectors of the home, herders, and guard dogs of cattle on farms. Today, their size is the only thing that keeps intruders at bay.

ALL RUFUS (FORD) LITTER PUPS AND MOMMA
WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG

The Danish Mastiff has a heart of gold, loves to snuggle, and always wants to be near you, though their preference is to sit on you.  They are an excellent dog with children and other dogs, though because they seem to underestimate their size, supervision is recommended. This breed is also remarkably agile for their size and does well with agility, fetching balls, and jumping and catching Frisbees. Anything you do, camping, hiking, picnicking, walks in the park, they will be more than happy to go along with you.

One look at that adorable face, those sweet eyes, and that luxurious chocolate fur, and you will want to scoop him up! Rufus is such a sweet guy, who would be a great addition to any active family. He got lucky once already. Will you open your heart and home to Rufus and be his next forever home?
