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.

Neapolitan Mastiff

Overview: The Neapolitan Mastiff was first bred by the Romans for use in war and fighting in the arena. They are best for dominant owners with experience training strong dogs.

Temperament: The female Neapolitan Mastiffs are better with children. Males are more dominant, but will get along with other pets, if they are raised together from puppies. Two males generally aren't a good choice, as they will fight for dominance.

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 will be gaining some weight and then spayed prior to finalized adoption. Prada has lived in a home that allowed her to use potty pads indoors her entire life (that is a long time to use a puppy pad), so potty training has gone well; however no matter where she moves she may need a person with a bit of patience and compassion with her to get it right 100% of the time. Her adoption fee is $200 plus a $50 refundable training deposit upon completion of a basic obedience class with one of our recommended trainers.

Age: approx 7yrs old Kayla was surrendered to us due to the shape she was in. She was matted and emaciated (vet rated her 2/9 scale). She will be gaining some weight and then spayed prior to finalized adoption. Although Kayla is super sweet, she is a bit intimidated by larger dogs or dogs that are overwhelmingly invading her space, so she would do best without dogs that may meet that description. She isn't necessarily "bonded" to Prada, but she is used to her, and therefore comfortable with her. It would be nice to see them go to a home together, but we are also trying to be open minded on the possibility of them separating for the perfect fit.

She is a very sweet, bouncy girl who is being fostered with other dogs. She is crate trained, potty trained, and will be starting work on basic training very soon. She is almost like a cat, loves to climb on the back of the couch to take naps, and will rub along your feet at the floor for attention. She is generally pretty quiet, but will bark at normal alert items like new guests or a car pulling in the driveway. She likes toys, but will shred fluffy ones (and loves every minute of it). Her adoption fee is $250 plus a training deposit of $50 that is refunded upon completion of training with any approved trainer from our recommended list. She is spayed, heartworm negative, microchipped, dewormed, and vaccinated. She has also been on monthly flea/tick prevention while in our care.

It took some time for me to get used to a different life living inside with my foster brothers and foster mom and I have made some amazing progress! I have even met with a trainer a few times to work on the best ways to gain confidence and explore the world ahead. I am now seeking a forever home to spend my days lounging on a lap or a nice comfy dog bed. A home best suited for me would likely be one that is not as busy or chaotic as some can be. A quieter home with less guests in and out for me to get used to, because sometimes they take time for me to warm up to. I am neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped and ready for my future. My adoption fee is $150 with a $50 training deposit that would be returned if you continue training with me so you can learn all the things I know how to do, learn new things, and so we can have a wonderful bonding experience.

She didn't have the best start in life, so she's leery of strangers and would do best in a quieter household with a fenced yard. However, once she gets comfortable, she is both sweet and snuggly. She loves to be held in her foster dad's lap for belly rubs, and she also loves to climb up onto the back of the couch to survey her "kingdom" or doze. She is very treat-motivated, loves to learn, and does a "happy dance" before dinner time. She is fostered with another dog and a small child and does very well with both, although she does not like meeting strange dogs on the leash. Her foster dad says: "When we got Emily, we were told that she was rescued from a hoarding situation. She took to my wife right away and became her protector. It didn’t take long for her to adjust to our toddler and our own dog, too. I was on a business trip at the time, so when I came home, it took a while for her to adjust to me—a process I compare to the movie, 50 First Dates. Now we’re best buds!" Her fee is $200 to cover her medical expenses. There is an additional $50 training deposit that will be refunded upon completion of training with a positive reinforcement trainer.
