We have to re-home our big baby. We have had him since he was a puppy and he is now 2 yrs old and between 175-200 lbs. Unfortunately due to a mix of circumstances we are no longer able to keep him. He is truly a big baby, he needs lots of love and attention. We've been having some temperment problems with him lately (snapping at us from inside his crate when he's eating in his crate and now it has escalated where he will snap at us from his crate even when he's not eating) I know this is not his normal personality and it can be corrected with time and training from the right person! He is also not comfortable around strangers and is not socialized, he will bark but he is okay if we're standing right there with him but if somebody tries to approach him he gets scared. He wouldnt bite just to attack but I think if somebody were to come after him he will bite out of fear. The neighbors kids have been caught teasing him thru the fence on multiple occassions and I believe this has added to his anxiety! So with these issues, lack of time and resources, the crappy neighbors and on top of it our landlord doesnt want him here I have no choice but to try to find him another GREAT home with somebody who is going to LOVE my big baby. I cant keep him crated, it adds to his anxiety and thats not the life he deserves. Please only contact me if you're willing and capable of showing him the love he deserves and giving him the time and effort to help him with his issues. He does NOT need to be in a busy house with people in and out or around kids. Maybe one day a long time from now he can but he is too anxious/fearful/stressed. We have a 4 yr old daughter who loves him and who he has been around but he is only good with her, other kids make him very nervous. With his behavior changing lately we dont allow her to be around him because we are taking no chances. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-05-19-00259Bubba (male)|
Hi, my name is Bubba! I had a family once - I was the loving companion of a homeless man named Mike - a former, and proud Marine who chose a life of solitude. The Houston rescue community visited Mike often and provided food and shelter for me and my sister. One day, our dad got very sick. They took him away in an ambulance and we never saw him again. I was so very sad. He was the only family we had and although our family was small, it was full of love! The following weeks, me and my sister had some guardian angels who made sure we had plenty of food and water. They told me they would find me a new family who would love me forever! One day, they came to visit us and I was gone! They looked and looked for me but to no avail. In the meantime, my sister went to a loving home. The property owner where we were living cleared the land and put it up for sale. But my guardian angels never stopped looking for me! Sixty seven (yes! 67!!) days later, they got a call that I had returned to the campsite I'd called home. Where was my sister? And my toys? My food bowl? I was sad but as soon as my guardian angels showed up, I flashed my huge smile! Finally! A familiar face to give me lots of cuddles and love! They told me that I was safe and they would make sure I was taken care of until I could find a forever home of my very own! I am about 2 years old and weigh 90 lbs. I am a big teddy bear! I love to give hugs and am pretty sure I'm a lap dog! Aren't I? I am laid back, easy going, get along great with other dogs, love to lay in the sun, take walks and hang out on the couch. I have been vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. I am currently living at the kennel b/c I don't have a foster home. If you will foster me or would like to adopt me, please visit www.redcollar.org.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-05-17-00264Bruno (male)|
Bruno is a very loyal dog but we are unable to keep him due to his unpredictable ways. He has bit four people, 3 women, 1 man. We live in a busy neighborhood full of children and can longer deal with this liability. He could be a great companion for the right person. Does not do well with most other animals and certainly no children. We have been trying to find a home for him for almost 2 years and have been unsuccessful .

|Rescue Me ID: 13-04-28-00276ANGUS (male)|
Meet Angus, the lovable orphaned mastiff/lab mix that would give anything to just play ball with you and be near you. He has lots of energy, lots of love and is very well behaved but would much rather be playing tug of war with children or another FEMALE larger dog...he does not like most male dogs. .. He loves to go for walks OR RUNS!!! He knows some commands but does not like to be away from his people. He can be indoor/outdoor family member but not just outdoors and he can not go to a home with any small animals like cats, bunnies, chickens, etc.... because he thinks they are his chew toys ....Angus is very smart, he can climb some fences up to 9ft and reminds me of a Marine platoon leader... steady, sturdy, clever, and strong. But do not try to crate him or contain him. Angus stays with you because he loves people and wants to be near them but he panics if confined in a crate. This is one of the best dogs as far as loyalty and heart and devotion we have ever had on site in 20 years. He is goofy but devoted. Strong yet sweet. Rough and tumble yet lets a toddler crawl on him. Angus would make the best huggy pillow at night time and the best buddy to spend time with you ever had. Contact us at the Rescue -- call or text - 210-860-2971 for more details about this wonderful fellow. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-04-23-00197Lucas (male)|
Meet Lucas, he is a Cane Corso Mastiff, 4 to 5 yrs old, trained in basic obedience who prefers women. His owner suddenly passed away & her children just can't keep him. Lucas will need a VERY experienced handler who has worked with aggressive dogs. I don't know all the history behind him but he was taken in by the lady who passed with aggression issues. It takes him a while to warm up to people (very protective) but once he does, he is a big loving teddy bear. If interested, you will need to come & visit him a handful of times until he gets used to you before he will allow you to handle him. He is located in Dallas near 635 & I35E. Looks like he has a clogged tear duct or cherry eye in one eye but otherwise looks very healthy. This is not a good photo, he is a beautiful dog. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-03-21-00082Spike (male)|
Spike is a laid back kinda guy. He does love to go on walks and runs, but can be incredibly mellow and is quite content to just lounge around. He has been housebroken, but currently lives outside. He loves to be brushed and groomed and have hugs and belly rubs. He gets along well with female dogs too. He can be slow to warm up to strangers but he is incredibly loyal once he gets to know you. He and his female companion Livvi both belonged to my Uncle who passed away. I promised him I would find both dogs a good loving home. I cannot keep them because I cannot give them the attention they need. If you are interested please contact me.

|Rescue Me ID: 13-03-05-00016River (male)|
River is a Mastiff mix. He is a beautiful brindled boy. Don't let his white face fool you. He is not a senior; we think he is around 4-5 years old. He was rescued from the Arlington Texas shelter. He was initially in temporary foster but he is currently in boarding. River is a large dog approximately 100lbs. He must be in an only dog home since he does not like little dogs. Due to his size and energy he would also be best in a home that does not have children. His foster father said that he was easily trained and learned very quickly. He has a tendency to pull on his leash so he is receiving training to correct this. River is not crate trained but in his foster home and in boarding he is not destructive even when unattended. During his foster period he appeared to be house trained. River is in good health. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations, neutered, Heartworm negative, and microchipped. River is a good dog but will require an owner that is a strong pack leader and that has experience with large dogs. River is anxiously awaiting his furever home! (Less)

Big Mama is the sweetest, calmest, most loving dog ever! That is what allowed her to be stolen from her rescuer's yard without making a sound. She was gone for a day and 1/2 then got out of her collar and came home to the foster. She was sitting in the backyard, waiting on breakfast when the foster came out to feed the other dogs! What a gem! She will be loyal, and is very smart. She is very strong, about 100#. Contact us to meet this gorgeous girl, and take home a loyal friend.

I currently live with several other lovely ladies and we get along just fine, but it's much more fun to be the center of attention.

I like to spend my days being spoiled and pampered by my people, if you rub my ears and stroke my soft fur I'll be your best friend. Are you looking for an elegant, sophisticated, refined lady to add to your family? Zsa Zsa is the one you've been waiting for, so let's do lunch. Call me, dahling!

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Mastiff in Texas|
Mastiff Dogs can make good pets in Texas 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.
