She is a very special mastiff that came to MRF as an owner surrender, do to their jobs taking so many hours from home.. They wanted more for this very loved mastiff. We had a great foster available that said "WHERE AND WHEN" she met Mini and brought her home. Mini has thrived over the holiday time and now we are looking for a wonderful home for this very sweet mastiff.
Her foster tells us.
"Mini is a beautiful, loving and happy dog. She has learned to sit before going outside and to sit and wait before eating. Mini loves to play with her tennis ball- and be outside on walks and the porch.
She barks at the rubbish truck, but quiets when you tell her. MINI is friendly to dogs and humans alike. Her soft coat is a pleasure to pet… she loves snuggles and is quite obedient. She will greet you at the door and help make your home a more loving, warm place. Outings are appreciated!"
He is a very nice 3 year Old, Apricot neutered male.
His story he was surrendered at a shelter in Florida.
The reason.. at the time the individual got him- he was not neutered and he was dumped in with an intact male and there was a fight.
Which happens and was caused by the humans ignorance.
He has been neutered, blood work done and he is slightly heartworm positive (which MRF is treating), he has an ear infection (we are treating) and he has hookworms (treating). He also has pressure calluses from being kept on a hard surface. He weighs 137lbs and could put on another 20lbs
His personality is very sweet, he is happy and the tail wags. At present he is fostered with 2 spayed females and doing great. He loves the soft bed and the comfort and kindness, he is getting. We have not put him with any males yet..as he has been recently neutered.
I came to Mastiff Rescue of Florida (MRF) after being used as a breeder. I am just under 2 years old and up to date on all vaccines. I am spayed . Trying new things is very scary for me to do but I always eventually do with patience and loving coaxing (and treats…I LOVE treats!). I love other dogs as long as they will let me get close to them (even to smell their face) to make sure they are going to be good friends. I want to let you know though, if they growl at me, I get really scared and defensive and instinctively will defend myself. Slow introductions and Patience .. is a necessity.
I absolutely LOVE hugs, pets and playing with my humans! My foster mom says I am such a good girl because I don’t go potty in her house once I know outside is safe wherever I am at! I am not real keen on little dogs or cats.
Toys, I love them ..but no ropes or cloth .. I will eat them.
Oh one last thing…my foster mom’s 10 yr old niece came to visit and I did really good with her once she learned to not jump around and be loud and let ME come up to her . Once I knew she was a “good” human, I begged her for hugs, pets and to get on her lap . No toddlers.. They may be too scary due to my need to take things slow and quiet. I’m slower to trust. But boy once I know I can trust you, watch out because I will become your Velcro companion .
Gypsy, needs Patience, training, socialization. She is a young dog and she has paid her dues producing litters... now it is up to "US HUMANS" to show her a real life .
Olive, 5 years old, spayed. Olive was a backyard breeder and dumped after the last set of puppies. A wonderful man took her in and contacted MRF. She is a very sweet mastiff that needs love and training. Her teeth have been ground down either because she was chewing on the kennel door or the breeder did it..
Hi! I am Olive and I - - a love bug that has short spurts of energy. I spent most of my prior life in a cage and really hate to be confined so - this new life with couches, cushioned mats and trots through the fenced yard are great! I created an escape route under the fence when I first moved in but it was filled and I now prefer to be here than to try and run away. I am eating well twice a day and taking supplements that are thickening my coat and making it silky.
I have had very little training but do understand a few of the basics. I am not well trained in personal space limits but do like to show affection to my foster parents and even my new sister Yara. I do not get on furniture except for the dog couch where I am allowed and am very generous sharing my drool and kisses with others. My sister Yara and I are learning how to play together and I am growing on her.
I love to be touched, brushed, bathed and toweled off, having topical solutions applied or any other signs of affection. I will even help if I can to make sure you can reach where I cannot. I do not like getting eye drops, getting into the shower or walking on floors that I could slip on. I love treats of any kind, and having things to chew on that are not too hard. I am still sensitive to noises, whether from a TV, inside or outside the house, or any sudden movements but I am getting better. I am very smart and quickly learned where to find the chew treats and how to open the cabinet and pull one out for my own enjoyment.
I am a sweetheart that wants to be loved and maybe some training
