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.

She is a doll who has been brushing up on her obedience and manners now that her puppies have left the nest. This beauty even comes with a freedom harness, martingale collar, and double clip leash (valued at over $60) to help you transition to a new dog without the additional cost. She would do best in a home with no young children or small loose pets (cats, rabbits, etc.). She has been around some dogs but can be selective depending on the other dogs personality. Nalani is spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and vaccinated all as part of her $100 adoption fee. There is an additional $50 training fee that is refunded upon completion of a training class/program with a positive reinforcement trainer. (don't worry we can give you recommendations)

We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient. www.goingtothedogsrescue.org Name: Bugsy DOB: 07/16/2011 Adoption Fee: $50 I am a sweet boy who loves attention and is eager to please! I love to run and play, and I love to go for hikes, but I am also a lap-loving snuggler who would watch TV with you for hours. I am not a big barker or noise-maker; I am rather quiet and just want your attention and love whenever you can give it to me. I currently eat tiwce a day, I am house trained and am also crate/kennel trained. As sweet as I am with humans, I am in need of a home with no other dogs because I am a resource guarder. What is that? It means that because of my past and lack of training early on in my development, I tend to value all of my resources so much that I guard them and do not want others to have them. If another dog were to challenge me on that, I would disagree and fight over it, so I just prefer not to share my treasured humans, food, and toys. Other stuff my foster parents think is important for you to know: I like to make my bed like a child makes forts. I am goofy about my nesting and my foster parents can't stop laughing when I do it. My adoption fee is $50 which covers all of my medical care including neuter, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and de-wormers. Bugsy will require a fenced yard, as well as obedience training completed after adoption. This will help him with manners and bonding with his new family to ensure he stays a lifelong pet! The bonus part of this is GTTD will refund the $50 adoption fee if you complete training with a positive reinforcement trainer (no aversive/correction based training).

Name: Rex DOB: 06/02/13 Oh hey there! My name is Rex aka Sexy Rexy because I am just so gosh darn handsome. So here's my story…I was rescued from a local shelter as a puppy where I was dropped off because I had mange and I was a bald little guy with no one to care for me. Then some wonderful woman came to my rescue and I am currently living in a home with 3 small breed dogs and 1 xl dog and do wonderful playing with them. I have been around cats and children. I am really good at taking baths(cause I reallly reallly LOVE To swim in the lake and ponds, so who minds a bath?) as long as you help me up and over the edge because I have these big old limbs that are sometimes hard for me to control. See, when I'm outside I love to run around but I kinda gallop like a horse, which isn't so funny to me, but foster mom & dad think it is just hilarious & so gosh darn cute…Maybe that's why I get so many treats….Did I mention how cute I am? I love peanut butter…and treats, especially homemade treats, like frozen hot dog snacks, mmm... Oh yeah, back to my story…I love attention, I will pretty much do anything you ask as long as you give me one of those treats I was talking about. I follow mom around a lot because I just love to get nice gentle pats on my head & kisses are nice too, I would like to think I'm a good kisser but mom says its kinda sloppy... and oh, I LOVE to cuddle, I actually think I'm a lap dog, and I give off so much heat like a big old furnace, so you wouldn't even need a blanket, I'm here for ya! I know "sit", and I'm trying to learn "paw" and "stay". When mom calls my name I look right away to see whats up, maybe she has treats for me! That would be nice, I'm a growing boy ya know. I sleep in my crate at night, and go right to bed like a good boy. Sometimes if I'm tired and just wanna be left alone I wander in there all by myself and take a little snooze. If you're looking for a big old cuddle bug then look no further, I am your man! 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 her adoption.
