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!


This is Ella Mae. She and her 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.


Ella Mae is a gorgeous 20 lb. Danish Mastiff mix. She is a plump little thing, with adorable wrinkles all over. Ella Mae is the happy-go-lucky one of the litter, who loves nothing more than to steal everything away from her brothers and sisters and run away laughing. Everyone in the family enjoys watching her antics. She currently has an umbilical hernia that will easily be fixed when she is spayed, but other than that, she is a little ball of delight.


These lively rescue dogs have an excellent reliable temperament and are friendly, superb with children and equable good with well-30 DOGSJ)). Ella Mae craves humans and she needs to feel as though she is part of the family. This breed is wonderful with people of all ages, and interacts well with children.

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.

Ella Mae is a sweet, little girl. She’s a baby, so she will obviously get along with anyone. Children will love to run and play with her, 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 Ella Mae would be a good fit for your family, she will absolutely bring you years of love, joy, and companionship, and lots of fun, too!
