Posted Breed: Bullmastiff / Black Mouth Cur (short coat).

Bullmastiff

Overview: The Bullmastiff is a big, brave bundle of love. He gets along with other pets and is great with children. Because he grows so large and strong, careful training is required when he's a puppy.
Breed Group: Working
Weight (lbs): male 110-130, female: 100-120
Height (in): male: 25-27, female: 24-26
Colors: Red, fawn, or brindle.
Coat: Short and dense.
Character: Bullmastiffs are highly intelligent. Always loyal to their owners, these dogs are obedient and courageous.
Temperament: This breed may try to dominate other Bullmastiffs. However, they are usually very tolerant toward children and get along with other household pets - if proper socialization has occurred early on. Unwanted visitors will be unwelcome!
Care: The Bullmastiff should be groomed with a rubber brush to remove dead or loose hairs.
Training: This breed requires an authoritative handler. Because he is sensitive to the tone of a human voice, training is quite straightforward.
Activity: The Bullmastiff needs a moderate amount of exercise. He enjoys the opportunity to run and play on a leash.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
Health Issue: This breed is prone to hip dysplasia, tumors, and some eyelid problems. Boils on lips and progressive retinal atrophy may also be seen. They tend to be prone to bloat.
Life Expectancy: less than 10

More About Bullmastiff Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 125.00. ~~Chase is a 7 month old lab mix who thinks the world is his oyster. He lives life to the fullest, with clumsy abandon and no concern for getting on his four-legged foster siblings last nerve. His name should really be Chance because he is so reminiscent of Chance in Homeward Bound. Everything is there for him to sniff and play with. He loves children and other dogs, but hasn't had the acquaintance of a cat yet. Might end up like Chance and the porcupine in the movie. He is kennel trained, and somewhat leash trained. Is a big-time toy thief and will take the other dogs toys every chance he gets but doesn't mind sharing his toys. Never chewed shoes or cords, but hasn't found a scrap of paper, a leaf or a bug he doesn't like. Sleeps in kennel all night. Wants out at the crack of dawn.

When playtime gets accelerated in the yard Livie calms the situation down. We don't know how she just does it. She loves long walks, is playful and loving. She needs a yard that will keep her safe. She has been known to get out of fences but never runs away. She just wants to be close to her human. Livie found herself in the city shelter because her family was expecting a baby and didn't have time for her anymore. Livie's days were numbered until she came to the NHS rescue. We want to find her a family that will respect, care for and love the wonderful girl she is. If you would like to meet her or want more information about Livie e-mail natchitocheshumane@yahoo.com.

He recently went to our local radio station, was a big hit and was a perfect gentleman. He is smart and will listen to his owner. Cash is heartworm positive. We do require that any interested adopters understand heartworms. They must also agree to continue our method of treatment or, if they wish, they can opt for traditional veterinary treatment; however they cannot choose to do nothing and we do require an agreement/contract be signed that the adopter will continue with a plan to rid him/her of the heartworms. We highly recommend that you discuss this with your veterinarian, as some vets will ONLY do the traditional veterinary treatment. ~~For more information please e-mail natchitocheshumane@yahoo.comor complete the adoption application on the NHS website, http://www.natchitocheshumane.com/index.php/adoption/
