Recent Rescue (English Mastiff)

Here's Ozzy, my new 5-year-old Mastiff I got a couple weeks ago.





I got him from a shelter. His owner became terminally ill . A friend of hers took him in but she ended up allergic to him. So she VERY reluctantly gave him up to the shelter. He was there for about 2 months
He's a great dog - loves to visit with people, kids and other dogs....doesn't bark much at all. He's great in the truck. Was great for his bath. I love em!!!

He does have some health issues; Hip dysplasia, surgery on one knee and some sort of colon issue. I got him on Hill's ID for now and he has a pretty good stool. At the shelter is was pretty much pudding all the time. The shelter manager said a lot of people looked at him but figures the heath problems scared them away. Their loss - Ozzy's an awesome dog!!

He certainly looks like a very nice boy. Such soulful eyes. I don't know who's luckier - you or him. A darn nice thing you did. My hat's off to you.

I love English Mastiff's. We have one at the office -- he's 214 pounds of pure loooovvvveeeee! He's got terrible allergies and a bad knee (at only 2) and he scares the heck out of people but I don't think he has a mean bone in his body. Congratulations to you and Ozzy. He's gorgeous
