    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO AND FILL OUT OUR ADOPTION APPLICATION AT (click home and then forms to download) BEFORE CONTACTING US FURTHER Bear is 5 year old male bullmastiff, owner surrender by a truck driver whose job started taking him on the road too much to continue giving Bear the life he deserves. Bear has a good temperament, his tail wagging all the time, even while drinking. He is a serious dog who wants to be close to his human. He wants very much to please and needs the hand of a patient handler who can guide him into self-confidence by spending a lot of time with him & giving lots of reassurance. ... (Read More)Allowing him to sleep in the same room with the owner would be good. Bear likes to take a drink often as opposed to quenching his thirst each time, so will need a water supply available all the time. He is quiet in his crate, but only after he has been with you long enough to know that he is in his permanent home; otherwise, he will be troubled by the separation from his human. While he doesn't pull on his leash, he crosses in front of his handler left & right so that it is easy to stumble over him. Being cross with him will only confuse him - he must understand what you are asking of him. Formal training would bring out his great potential & solidify the bond with his human. He offers good eye contact when, after working with him a bit & giving lots of praise, he seems to say, 'Oh, I get it now ! This is great fun!' Bear barks (if one can call that a bark) when he is excited. He is not bad about barking when confined to the crate for a while unless it's mealtime & he knows you are preparing his meal. May bark at another dog in the next yard if he doesn't know the dog. Barks at neighbor on riding mower - the noise excites him. Bear is small-dog reactive so he is not a good candidate for someone who likes to get out and walk in a neighborhood full of small dogs. He would benefit from a group obedience class where he will be around other dogs with trainers who can observe and guide his human in the direction he needs. He gets along with his co-foster female bullmastiff - and most males who don't get in his face. Bear patiently allows his human to clean his ears & clip his nails. Bear uses his front paws to connect with people, throwing one out to make contact. Jeans or other durable pants are a good idea until he learns that some people don't care for that. He has learned here in his foster home, but the habit may re-surface under the stress of a new home. Jumping up on people has not been a problem. He is a good-natured boy who tries very hard to please his human, so he learns quickly. Bear is neutered, up to date on all vaccines, HW- and microchipped. Bear's adoption fee is $350. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-23-00105Kate - VA (female)

Bullmastiff    Age: Young Adult

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

    Kate is in the house! Kate was raised by a family who loved her & took good care of her. Her family recently fell on hard times and had to give her up. She is shy, very sweet and non-demanding, hesitant to go through doors or other openings & fearful of things falling. That being said, she does not display fear of thunder or fireworks (as long as the fireworks are not in her yard) She is patient with nail trimming, ear cleaning, etc. Kate is very food motivated, perhaps because we had to have her on a diet until she trimmed down a bit. A good chew toy will engage her for hours. If she is left in her crate or any area by herself too ... (Read More)long, she will yip once softly like a little tiny dog. Kate has very good manners in the home, not being willful or bent on having her way. She has not been taught to come when called but walks nicely on the left side while on leash. While Kate is submissive toward other dogs, she will quickly defend her food or chew from another dog who may want to investigate. In our limited time with her, she appears friendly toward male dogs; no experience with other females yet. No prey drive although she shows lots of interest in a squirrel that may scamper nearby. Kate is very scent-oriented. She can sniff one spot on your clothes or any other unobtrusive item for 20+ minutes. She sniffs things more than the average dog does, perhaps savoring various layers of odors. Kate has two distinctive coat markings, which add to her princess personality. There is a little cowlick on her left shoulder and she has a linear swirl down her tail. Because of her quiet personality, Kate would be happiest in a home without children. If you would like be Kate's forever home, please complete the adoption application at (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bullmastiff in Virginia
    Bullmastiff Dogs can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. The Bullmastiff is a large, powerful dog related to the English Bulldog. Bullmastiffs are very loyal and devoted to their families. Bullmastiffs are very protective and make good guard dogs. A Bullmastiff is a good family pet and gets along well with children, but should be supervised with little ones because of its large size. Bullmastiffs need firm masters. Bullmastiffs need attention and to be treated like part of the family; they should not be left alone. Bullmastiffs may be lazy and not enjoy exercise but need a daily walk and should not be allowed to put on too much excess weight. A Bullmastiff can live in an apartment if it gets enough daily exercise.
