Posted Breed: Neapolitan Mastiff (short coat). Ready to Apply? You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely. • We will not pursue an incomplete application • Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information. We may dismiss the application if this is not completed. • Volunteers handle dozens of applications at a time so we do not guarantee contact with everyone. We try our best, but we are working around jobs, kids, and of course, dogs. •Adoptions generally take longer than 4 days to process but there is no set time frame. We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Hoyt is a very large boy who is in need of a special home. Please note, we have set specific criteria for him to ensure a positive placement, not to be strict. He is a great boy who doesn't know his own strength and has some fear & anxiety issues that are very workable but someone MUST commit to his training in order to adopt him. Hoyt is looking for a home with no kids under 6yrs old. Hoyt has done well with many dogs in a play setting but does get very jealous at home and would be best if he was an only dog. He has not hurt another dog or person, but he has growled on occasion at dogs when they are in his space. He has been fine around the cat. He is also in need of a home that will take him to training to continue learning skills and confidence and better ways to manage fear. He loves to use his crate as his safe place. He tends to be more fearful out in public and when guests come over so this cannot happen without additional training to know it is ok for him. He would do best in a home where they agree to keep him on Prozac not have him left home alone more than 5hr stretches. Hoyts adoption fee is $200 which includes his neuter, rabies, vaccinations, heartworm test (neg) and microchip.

More About Neapolitan Mastiff 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-Mastiff Mix
      Sex: Male Male

      Posted Breed: Mastiff / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ready to Apply? You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely. • We will not pursue an incomplete application • Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information.

We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org ****PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION ON PETANGO.COM, VISIT OUR SITE DIRECTLY AT WWW.GOINGTOTHEDOGSRESCUE.ORG IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED**** Some folks are little dog people, and some folks are big dog people. If you're a big dog person, then man, Rex is your dog. Smooshy. Snuggly. Smiley. Rex has it all. He's a hefty, laid-back fellow at four-years-old, and he loves everybody: guys, girls, kiddos, doggos, everybody in between. If you live on Planet Earth, Rex probably loves you. He's crate-trained, house-trained, nice on a leash; for weighing more than 80 pounds, Rex is an unobtrusive kind of guy. He still loves to play and have a good time, of course, but he's no Energizer Bunny. If you're looking for a big old cuddle bug then look no further, Rex is your man! Although we do not have a blanket policy on fencing, we do specify this for some dogs who we feel should require it to keep their quality of life up. Rex is a dog we feel due to his size and energy would do best in a home with a fenced yard to stretch his legs and run.  When in a home with no fence we noticed his energy level was a bit more pent up and that reflects in his indoor energy, manners and leash skills.  We hope you understand our decision is really in the best interest of our dogs.   His adoption fee is $200 which covers the cost of his medical treatment, neuter, vaccinations, de-wormer, microchip, etc. There is a $50 training deposit that is refunded upon completion of training.

      Breed: Beabull
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Ready to Apply? You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely. • We will not pursue an incomplete application • Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information.

We try our best, but we are working around jobs, kids, and of course, dogs. •Adoptions generally take longer than 4 days to process but there is no set time frame. We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Tulip was rescued from a puppy mill auction in October 2010 when our rescue headed an effort to save over 60 dogs from being cycled back into breeding operations after one of the largest mills in Missouri was shut down. Normally, we don't believe in "paying" for our rescue dogs, but in this case, none of the money went back to the mill, it was paid to the government as a fine for their activities. Tulip was only 6wks old when we took her from the mill, so she didn't have any of the typical mill issues. My husband begged to keep her and I caved. When we split up, he took her with him and during that time Tulip developed a dislike for their female dog and became a bit less friendly with strange dogs. My husband passed away a few weeks ago, and of course we wanted to get Tulip back to a familiar family; however we have 5 dogs. It would be incredibly unfair for Tulip to live the last part of her life in a crate and rotate situation. Tulip is spayed, I believe she is up to date on vaccines but will redo them if we don't find her updated records. Tulip is seeking a home with no other dogs or cats. She is crate trained. She is 7 years old so although we hope she has a lot more good years in her, the person wishing to adopt will want to be fully prepared to take on a dog that will be considered a "senior" in a few years and will require a senior blood panel annually to ensure she stays healthy, is on good quality food, and receives any care recommended by the veterinarian. Because she is a bulldog mix, her dental work may be required in the next few years as well. Tulips adoption fee is $100 + a $50 training deposit refunded to you upon completion of training with a professional positive trainer

I have completed a few dog obedience courses and do know many cues such as sit, down, roll over, leave it, drop it, potty, crate, relax, touch, back up, stand, etc. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm and parasite negative. Noble would do best in a home with no other pets to set her up for success. Her adoption fee is $100
