Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant

    Mystic is a very loving and smart Cane Corso purebred. As long as it is on her terms. She is protective and loves attention. She loves walks, and to run around. We rescued her from an unknown person who was going to dump her at the pound. She sits, stays, comes on command. House broken and leash trained. Mystic needs a home where she will be walked, or jogged with regularly. She does well with our teenage daughters but we have had her four years. A kid free home is best fit for her. She has had one incident where she nipped someone. That is the only time. She is also kennel trained. We love her so much but just don't the time ... (Read More)right now.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-16-00132Norman (male)

Mastiff    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Norman a.k.a. Stormin' Norman a.k.a. Normy Bear is a 3 year old English Mastiff. He is great with my husband myself & our 3 children and extended family he knows well. He is also great with our cat, our male Labraweenie & our female lab. However Norman developed an alpha male personality (something we should have realized and nipped in the bud early but sadly we didnt). We run a very busy farm/agriculture business and Norman does not like the constant flow of people he does not know...he has never bitten anyone but he has barked and lunged aggressively to establish 'his territory' on several occasions & we feel we cannot continue to keep ... (Read More)him from a liability standpoint. He has a sweet heart & I think would be a gentle giant if he were to be rehomed where the rules were established very early that he was not the boss...we just took his behavior as a puppy as kind of cute but now realize we let him think he's in control. We do not want to give him up but we know that he can't stay here where he thinks he's in control or eventually he will hurt someone & have to be put down & that would break our hearts. He has lived his whole life on a 5 acre farm so a tiny apartment would not do for Norman unless you plan to give him lots of exercise...he also does drool quite a bit especially in terms summer but that is common with Mastiffs. He loves back scratches and standing under a cold hose on a hot day...thats about his favorite thing in the world. From the day we got him he was a big baby if he ever got scolded so I know he has a tender heart... He just needs the opportunity to reset his behavior. If you are experienced with training dogs and have the time to work with Norman he would be a great investment. We do have an underground fence on our property so he is trained with that and would very easily learn new perimeters if you also have one. Please only contact me if you are truly interested and truly want to work with Normy Bear. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Mastiff in Illinois
    Mastiff Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Old English Mastiff is a massive breed. Mastiffs are very gentle toward their families. This is an intelligent, protective breed that makes a good guard dog but is unlikely to attack unless severely provoked. Mastiffs behave well with children but should be watched with little ones because of their large size. Mastiffs need gentle training and socialization from an early age. Mastiffs can live in an apartment or a home with a small yard.
