Rescue Me ID: 15-11-19-00593Bear (male)

Bullmastiff    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO BEFORE CONTACTING US. 5 yr old male bullmastiff mix, owner surrender by a truck driver whose job started taking him on the road for days at a time. Bear has a good temperament, his tail wagging all the time, even while drinking. He is not at all demanding but he is a serious dog who needs to be close to his human. He wants very much to please and will need lots of reassurance in his new home. Bear likes to take a drink often , but his bitty bladder will require frequent trips outside if you indulge him. He is quiet if alone in his crate, but only after he has been with you long enough to know that he is ... (Read More)in his permanent home; otherwise, he will be troubled by the separation from his human. Although Bear has no formal obedience training, he knows 'sit', 'down', and 'back up'. He won't pull on the leash after he gets used to you but still needs some leash work to keep him on track with where you want to go. He offers good eye contact as he is always seeking to understand what one is asking of him. Formal training would bring out his great potential & solidify the bond with his human. Bear barks softyly when he is excited. He is not bad about barking but may bark at another dog in the next yard or a neighbor on a riding mower - the noise excites him. Bear is small-dog aggressive so he is not a good candidate for someone who likes to get out and walk in the neighborhood. He strongly needs 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. He loves to ride in the car and behaves when left for his human to run a quick errand. However, he does bark excitedly as he watches his human walk away. True to his layed back nature, Bear patiently allows his human to clean his ears & clip his nails. Bear does not jump up on people, but that habit may re-surface under the stress of a new home. He is a good-natured boy who tries very hard to please his human, so he learns quickly. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-21-00177Sarge (male)

Bullmastiff    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, My name is Sarge; I'm almost 6 years old but feel like I'm 3! I don't like to think about my past, but you probably need to know a little about it. I was used for breeding and didn't get to do all the fun stuff that dogs get to do. For more than a year I was kept inside a shed and lived in my own filth. Enough about that! Luckily ABARS rescued me, and now I get to be a dog! I have learned about toys, treats, belly rubs, grass, walking on a leash, how cool Humans are, and where I'm supposed to potty. I went to my first park the other day and WOW, was it great! There were lots of people, dogs, ducks, and even this noisy thing ... (Read More)called a firetruck. My foster parents said I did great and behaved really well. And riding in a car is awesome! I currently live with 2 small dogs and 2 cats. I didn't know what cats were at first, but they're pretty cool, just kinda stuck up. I don't like it when you use a mean voice or quick arm motion. I think something bad is going to happen and cower to the floor. I'm all about the hugs, belly rubs, and long walks. Oh, how I would love to be a lap dog, but Foster Mom said ow. I love going outside! It totally rocks! And my foster parents say that I've really improved in walking on a leash. I still need some work in this area though. And I'll need regular exercise because I have energy. Plus, I could lose a few pounds. I'm about 125 pounds now, but the ladies still love me. That's right, they say I'm a healthy, handsome boy. I'm also crate trained and know several commands. I'm in search of my forever home and here is my wishlist. I like other dogs, cats are fine, and I think I would enjoy kids because they have lots of love. I want belly rubs and rides in a car and chew treats and kong toys (because I love to chew). I still need work on my manners and I'm almost housebroken. Yay! I do need to finish my heartworm treatment, so someone will have to stay on top of that. If you can do this for me, I will love you as much as you can stand and then some. Foster Dad will be sad to see me go but will be happy that I can finally claim a family as my own. Please contact my Foster Mom, Kimberly Cooper Smith at if you have any questions. (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.
