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: Catahoula Leopard Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog (short coat). Adoption Fee: 125.00. Luke is a little timid, but he is young so his personality will blossom with a loving family. He does well in the car, and is pretty good on a leash but noises and activity can startle him. He interacts well with other dogs but has not been around children so uncertain. He is very easy-going so would probably be great with kids.

      Breed: Black Mouth Cur-Catahoula Leopard Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Black Mouth Cur / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: $125.. Iris is a work in progress. She was found starving with her 2 siblings Lily and Luke. Her ear appears to have been bitten off. The 3 dogs had a VERY hard life in a rural area in Natchitoches Parish. She is learning to trust and wants to be loved so badly. She wants to play but you have to work up to everything you do with her slowly. One of our volunteers plays a game with her that appears to be working. She sits on the ground with her and Iris stays back on her leash. The volunteer playfully pushes Iris and says "Get out of here". She has learned that it is for fun and is slowly coming around. She'll even stretch and give you a quick gentle kiss on the face. Any loud noises or people coming at her too fast is tough on her but we practice every day. Her leash walking is great now! Iris has come a long way and with patience and a dedicated owner she is going to be a great best friend.

She sleeps in her crate at night, and has had play dates with other dogs which she likes but is somewhat taken aback by cats. She is quick to hunt for food and will get into any food bags that aren't up too high for her to reach.
