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 .
