Rescue Me ID: 18-01-29-00156Hercules (male)

Mastiff    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    HERCULES WILL ONLY BE ADOPTED TO AN EXPERIENCED CANE CORSO / GUARDIAN BREED HOME. ABOUT ME: Hercules is a gorgeous 18 month old Cane Corso kid that is looking for an extra-special home. Herc needs to find a family that will work with him to build his confidence and make him into the awesome dog that he is meant to be! Before he came to rescue, nobody ever took the time to train or socialize Hercules. Instead, he was passed from owner to owner until he finally ended up at the pound in San Antonio. He was adopted by another individual from the shelter, but they ended up dumping him with a Great Dane rescue in Texas. The Dane rescue ... (Read More)reached out to us and we said YES!! WHAT I NEED IN A HOME: Hercules is a loving, friendly and affectionate boy who loves to run, play and explore in the yard. He is living with dogs of all sizes at his foster home, and gets along great with the girls, although sometimes the small dogs make him nervous. Therefore, we think he would do best in a home with a large, confident female dog. We haven't had a chance to observe Hercules around cats, so we'd prefer to place him in a home without felines. Mr. H can be fearful around loud noises, so we think an adult-only home, or a family with teenage children, would be the right fit. Due to his sad past, Hercules has moderate to severe separation anxiety. He doesn't want to be away from his people for more than 15-20 minutes, and will escape from a regular crate if given the chance. His new family must therefore be willing to purchase a heavy duty crate for him, as well as work patiently with him while he learns to trust again. Hercules' new family should also be willing to consult a professional trainer or behaviorist, and should be open to the idea that Herc may need to take daily medicine to help minimize his anxiety. THE DETAILS: Hercules is diligently working on his housebreaking skills and has gotten much better on the leash. His foster dad is helping him learn basic obedience, and will need to continue his training with his new family. Hercules is vaccinated, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped. Ready to give Hercules the forever home of his dreams? Fill out our Adoption Application, located at under the 'work with us' tab. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Our dogs are available for adoption nationwide but preference is given to adopters willing to do an in-person meeting. Please understand that our dogs are not adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but rather we strive for a 'perfect placement' so we know that they will not be failed again. (Less)

He is heartworm positive bus is undergoing treatment through the generosity of a donor. Hulk needs a forever home.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-31-00500Lucy (female)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lucy is a BIG goofball. She came into the high kill shelter with her son Linus. (They can be separated) She was rescued on her kill day. She LOVES everyone and does well with other dogs with proper introduction. Seems ok with outside cats. She loves to play and loves attention. She is BIG and strong. Hasn't had much training that we can see, so someone with a little experience would fit well with her. She is very willing to please.. We estimate her around 2 years old, roughly 70lbs. She needs to fill out some, so will be bigger, probably around 100lbs. She is spay, current on all shots, heartworm negative, started on heartworm ... (Read More)preventative, and flea and tick meds. Would really make a great pet.. Her adoption fee is $175.00 (Less)

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