Mastiff Cross

Scrappy – 2 year old male Mastiff Cross

Scrappy is a Mastiff cross who has come to us after her owner had a change of circumstances. Scrappy is 2 years old and is a friendly dog who loves cuddles! Scrappy really enjoys being around people. He has lived with children and likes them! He can live with children over 8. Scrappy can be left on his own for up to four hours. He enjoys playing with toys, especially if they have food in them!

Scrappy is good with dogs when out and about. He is currently living with two other dogs, so could live with a female dog. Scrappy will need an owner with a garden.


Roxy – 8 year old female Mastiff Cross

Roxy is a Mastiff cross who has come to us after her owners circumstances changed. Roxy is 8 years old and is looking for a home to call her own. She is friendly and enjoys human company. She is good with dogs when out and about and could possibly live with a calm male dog.


We would prefer to rehome Roxy to someone who has had experience with Mastiffs or similar breeds.


Frankie – 18 month old male Rhodesian Ridgeback cross Mastiff

Frankie is an 18 month old male Rhodesian Ridgeback cross Mastiff. As you can see from his pictures he is a Stunning boy. Frankie is a very happy, fun dog who loves to play and be with you. We have been doing training with Frankie and he is quick to learn and enjoys the interaction. He came in to rescue through no fault of his own as his owners couldn’t keep him any more as they live in housing association accommodation and were not allowed dogs.

Frankie needs a forever home now with a committed family who can give this boy the stability and loyalty he deserves. In return Frankie will be a loyal and loving companion and be a wonderful, affectionate addition to the family. He is good with other dogs and has lived with children but due to his size and being a big puppy would rehome with older sensible children/teenagers so he doesn’t know little ones over.


Blaze – 18 month old male Mastiff cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Blaze is a 18 month medium sized male crossbreed with an flame orange brindle coat with white chest. We guess Blaze to be a cross between Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Mastiff and has all the special qualities of both breeds: A lovely cross and often sought after, for good reasons. Blaze is a special boy and his family will be very lucky when they find him!

Blaze will set your heart ablaze! Smiley when he has little to smile about; friendly when he is meeting one stranger after another. Calm in his meetings with other dogs and respectful of them. Blaze feels management, command, walking, around food, and has a very loyal energy towards who ever he is with. Talk of the town!

His family to offer him further training and support as he settles into a new life and makes the necessary adjustments. Blaze would enjoy a secure garden with lots of opportunity to enjoy the outside life and continue his socialization with other dogs. Blaze may settle with live in cats as before but is quite interested on the street! Blaze would settle with live in children providing they were respectful of him. Could be first time dog owners dog. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog’s lives at greater risk.

Owners evicted and bailiffs found Blaze in the house with 13 cats, a budgie and 3 guinea pigs when they broke in. Blaze went into foster was passed on without knowledge of the Housing Dept then passed back at the council offices with no kennels available anywhere on a Sunday so we took him in and offered him a Rescue place. Blaze will be neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Blaze is currently in boarding kennels in Godstone with weekend foster.

Mabel – 3-5 year old female Mastiff Cross

Mabel is a female Mastiff Cross of 3 to 5 years of age. She has come in to our care via the pound and we have limited history for her. Mabel is a large gentle girl, she enjoys going for a walk and is quite easy on the lead. She loves a treat, sits to command and would do well at reward based training. Mabel has got on with the other dogs while at the rescue.


Ruby – 8-9 month old female Mastiff Cross

This is Ruby, an affectionate young female crossbreed who is approximately 8 to 9 months old. We think she is a mastiff cross Labrador, as she is quite tall and long. The photos above show Ruby looking a little timid as they were taken the day she arrived at our rescue. Ruby was previously an unclaimed stray in a dog pound in the UK and was due to be put to sleep soon after Christmas, through no fault of her own. However, a network of dedicated volunteers drove Ruby several hundred miles down to us at Goodward Dog Rescue in Sussex where she is now safe and looking for a good home who will appreciate her sweet nature.


Ruby is currently in foster with us in Worthing, West Sussex living with other rescue dogs and we have found her to be loving and playful both with people and dogs. She is very sociable with other dogs and has made quite a few doggy friends here, as seen playing with one of her new friends. (She does however like to collect other dogs’ toys at the moment.) Ruby would be an ideal playmate for an active neutered male of a similar size. Ruby would do equally as a single dog, as a loyal companion as she likes to follow you around and be in your company. Ruby can also be left for a couple of hours at a time, but at this stage while she is still quite young, she would need someone to be around for most of the day. In a home environment, Ruby can be busy and bouncy for the first few minutes of seeing you but soon settles down. Ruby is quite clever and learns quickly. She enjoys her food and is happy to follow commands for a treat. She also likes to follow her nose tracking a scent around the garden.

Ruby knows her name and obeys commands to sit and stay. She enjoys playing ball and is gentle when you take toys away from her. She is also a good watch dog and will alert you to new people coming to the door or passing by but is sociable towards people not known to her. Ruby is an easy dog to look after. She walks well on the lead but will need a little further training with her recall although she will generally come straight back. Ruby will need a secure garden with high fencing. Ruby can be rehomed to a family with older children as she is trustworthy, sweet-tempered and gentle but we would not recommend her to anyone unsteady on their feet. Ruby may be able to live with a confident cat.

Ruby will need to be spayed mid April this year when she is approximately 12 months old (the age advised by our vet), at our cost, arranged through the rescue. Ruby also has full vaccination status.


Hugs – 1 year old male Labrador cross Mastiff

Hugs needs a strong family who can offer him time to unwind and support him as he settles and learns to listen. Hugs will need a ‘training home’ to help him learn calm self-control as a maturing large dog. He has no malice, just a high level of ineptitude. Hugs needs a Gentle Leader or similar method to assist him and his handler when on leaded walks. He will need a fair-sized, secure garden in which to express his glee and energy. Hugs needs to be an only pet within a family who has had previous large dog experience.

Hugs was found stray as a very young dog; he was quite confused as to how to please and certainly didn’t understand anything about leads. Hugs is neutered, chipped and vax’d. He is currently kenneled in Broxbourne, Surrey.

Hugs came with the name but we are hoping to find a family to move him beyond it. Kennels haven’t helped him explore and use his abundant energy. Hugs is play, play, play. He is a little too large to behave like a three month old puppy, so he needs help on his way to becoming a calm, confident adult dog. He is at a leapy, mouthy stage of development and has few foundation skills.

Hugs is a yellow, black muzzled, short haired, Labrador-Mastiff cross. Hugs is a large puppy even though he is two years old; he has the smiles of a clown. Hugs is endearing but needs a determined family who will be there for him; he needs a foster or forever home that will help move him through to mental and emotional adulthood. Hugs has missed out during his formative months. He will succeed in his development but needs patience and time from his family.

Please visit Hugs thread on our forum to find out if he is still available and for fuller details.

Ella – 2 year old female Mastiff Cross

Ella is a medium to large crossbreed with a gentle bull breed temperament. She has a sound disposition and would be receptive to dog savvy children. She would settle in with another fluent dog or as an only dog. She would love a secure garden and above all stability, as her bond will go deep.

Ella with her foster pack off lead – put the sound up!

Ella was handed into a pound in season, apparently having been found stray. We offered her a safe rescue place. Ella is now neutered, chipped and fully vax’d. She is currently in foster in Hertford, north of London. Ella is Mellow. Ella, kind hearted and gentle, has adjusted well to being in kennels, as well as in a multi-dog foster placement. She will eventually be an off lead dog, once she has fully regained her confidence, proves she can be trusted meeting other off lead dogs and can cope with their differences. In the meantime, she is showing how trainable she is, and she also seems to enjoy sharing her life with other dogs. She is housetrained, can be left, and travels well in a car. She offers marvellous companionship.

Ella is a young, medium-large Mastiff cross with a blue-brindle coat, giving a smokey impression. She has a velvet soft coat. Her health is improving after we found her to have a decaying pup in her womb on spay. She enjoys exchanging affection and is adaptable – active or sedentary, she is your girl!

Skye – 2 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Mastiff

Skye is a 2 year old female Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross Mastiff. Skye needs owners to support her emerging skills and note well she is doing. She needs the acquisition of inner solidity, and strength built over time. Skye needs reassurance built on routine as she becomes self assured. Skye needs to be introduced to varied activities; new owners will be tolerant of her ‘needy’ state and placate her: This will become less of an issue. She must have access to the sofa and so needs an inclusive family. Would be fine around dog savvy children. Could live with another dog providing they gave her sufficient space whilst she settles. Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog’s lives at greater risk.

Skye was found tied up with Storm (we think her brother) both froze to the ground with fear when they arrived at the kennels. We believe Skye has been bred from. Skye is now neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated. Currently in foster in Abington as an only dog. Skye is acclimatizing herself to all that life can offer thanks to devoted fosterers.

Skye’s owners need to be receptive to her affectionate nature, allowing her to be inclusive, so she can thrive on the attention she currently so needs. Skye is building a good skill and command set. Skye enjoys meeting other dogs, people, and strangers. Housetrained with opportunity offered. Skye travels well and likes to view the moving scenery.

Skye is a Mastiff cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Blue in colour with a blue nose. Skye has a wonderful temperament. Our sense is she has had quite a protected life with limited exposure and now very ready to embrace life and is proving herself to be a quick learner and has calm energy. Skye can be left short periods without destruction. Skye the sky is the limit to a wonderful life that beckons you.

Lynx – 5 year old male Mastiff Cross

My name is Lynx, I am a 5 year old, male Mastiff cross. I arrived at Carla Lane Animals in Need after they saved me from being destroyed at the dog pound almost 2 years ago. Since then my life has been a roller coaster ride of a time, last year I fell I’ll and was on a drip in the vets. I lost a lot of weight and went down to 20kgs. It is a miracle that I pulled through. I am a big softy and love kisses and cuddles. I walk well on the lead and carry my kong toy everywhere I go. I walk well around other dogs too, but due too my past I can be dominant in the home so need an experience owner with no children or other pets. I am now ready for a forever home, I am now 43kgs and counting, a happy healthy boy.


Samson – 18 month old male Mastiff Cross

Samson is a handsome Mastiff Cross who is around 18 months old. He is full of fun but has not had much training. Because of this, he is very strong and bouncy. He needs an active home with someone capable and committed to keeping up with his training.

Samson has lived with children but due to his bouncy nature, he can only go to a home with children over the age of 10; who are used to large breeds. He is not good with small animals and has not been tested with cats.


Lily – 1 year old female Mastiff Cross

Lily is a 1 year old female Mastiff Cross. She is a bundle of fun who loves other dogs. She would benefit from some training classes.
