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 06-03-21 There are always so many heartbreaking stories to tell from being in a dog rescue group, but once in a great while we get to tell a “happy tail” about adorable puppies that were NOT abandoned, NOT tossed out of a car on a remote backroad, and NOT neglected and forgotten. These puppies are happy, healthy, and ready to start a journey to find their forever homes up north!

We’d like you to meet Ford. He and his 6 siblings were born on 1/28/21 to a wonderful mom who had spent most of her young life as a stray. She was taken in by a wonderful family who gave her plenty of food, a warm bed, and lots of love. Unfortunately, they assumed she was spayed, and several years later, boy, did she surprise them! Luckily this family is doing the right thing and getting momma spayed right away, as well as working with us to get these pups into great homes.
ALL LITTER PUPS AND MOMMA
Ford is a gorgeous 20 lb. Danish Mastiff mix. He is a plump little thing, with beautiful eyes and the fuzziest fur of them all. Ford is very smart, and the most obedient of the crew, rarely needing to be corrected more than once. We are told he will look at you as if to say, “OK, I got it”. Ford loves to play with his siblings, but mostly loves to snuggle. How could you resist this little ball of fur and wrinkles?
ALL LITTER MATES
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.
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.
Ford is a sweet, little guy. He’s a baby, so he will obviously get along with anyone. Children will love to run and play with him, but we always strongly suggest that no dog, young or old, should ever be left unsupervised with children until everyone is very comfortable in all situations. If you think Ford would be a good match for your family, he will absolutely bring you years of love, joy, and companionship, and lots of fun, too!
