Mastiff

Todd – 4-5 year old male Mastiff

Please meet Terrific Todd! Todd is a Mastiff of approx 4-5 years old, he came to us when he was left unclaimed in the pound and was due to be put to sleep after serving his 7 days – we have no previous history for him. He is quite the regal gent, he walks beautifully on the lead and is house trained, most of the day he spends snoozing on the sofa however he loves his food and walks!

Todd is a gentle giant who is mother hen to our tiny Dalmation puppy, he is a darling with not a bad bone in his body. He is currently a little under weight so is having 3 good meals a day to build him up. He loves other dogs so must be homed either where there is a resident dog or he would have plenty of contact with dogs. He is not destructive at all and is quite content being left for short periods. He is a very undemanding and lazy boy. Would suit an older person or couple.

This lovely boy would make a fantastic addition to any family as he is really laid back and undemanding, but equally a lovely cuddly loyal companion! Todd does have bursts of energy where he wants to play with you. He loves a tuggy toy and a football! Todd can live with other dogs and can also be housed with children age 13 plus.

Todd is castrated, fully vaccinated and chipped. He is flea and wormed. Could this gentle giant live with you?

Colin – 3-4 year old male Mastiff

This is Colin, he’s a young-ish (between 3-4) Mastiff mash-up. He’s been a long-term project of ours after being given to us by the Metropolitan police when his owner got him into trouble. Colin has been in kennels and working every day on his rehab and is finally at the point where we think he can go to a home, whether long-term foster (feed supplied and vets bills covered) or forever. Colin, for all his size, is a timid chap and a bit of a worrier, he’s improved beyond imagining since we’ve had him, and came on leaps and bounds when he was switched to a female handler, he is also very fond of his male handlers, but actively enjoys the company of girls (he is a ladies man) and becomes more playful and waggy.

He will take time to settle into a new home, and needs a very repetitive routine as any changes (in the beginning, even when we moved a coffee mug) can make him unsettled and he will begin to exhibit stress pacing which he can keep up for a long time. He is fully muzzle trained, because he can be snappy with other dogs, it is an agreed condition of adoption that Colin always wears a muzzle in public, however during his time with us he has been slowly introduced to our resident stooge dogs and has learned to play without being too much of a pillock. A truly experienced home with a truly stable existing dog will not be ruled out as an adoption option (we look at what’s right for each individual dog, we don’t work from tick sheets). But be under no illusion that Colin will be an easy pet! He’s a project dog, for someone who wants to reap the rewards of hard work and seeing him through the next stage of his rehab. He’s never (well, never say never!) going to be a dog you pop down the pub with who wants a fuss from everyone, but he will be a loyal companion and might teach a new owner some new things, we’ve certainly learned a lot from him.

Unusually, we’re happy for Colin to live out as long as he has every day house time as well as daily human contact, he would be an excellent farm dog (wouldn’t they all!), but equally we’ll consider a house with plenty of land – Colin needs much of his exercise somewhere familiar and safe. He travels ok in a vehicle, and has been fine at the vets. If you think you’re up for a real project, we’ll support you as much as you both need, if you adopt in the Leeds area or are happy to travel there on a weekly basis the Colin and you can attend weekly training with his current handler, making the transition easier for both him and you.

For more information on Colin, or to arrange a visit, please email enquiries@ironmountain-dogrescue.com.

Clara – 1-4 year old female Mastiff

Clara beautiful Mastiff girl of 1 to 4 years of age. Clara is a real headturner. She is a stunning example of her breed and has a great personality robot . Clara seems a well organised girl who will be a great addition to a lucky family.

Update: From one of our volunteers
Have walked Clara twice this week and initially she seemed quite a shy girl who stayed snuggled in her kennel, putting her head out when i put her kennel mate on a lead she then came out and happily enjoyed her walk. The first walk with both together and Clara on a short lead I found her quite strong but more because of her enthusiasm to get going. The second time I walked her on her own with an extendable which suited both her and me. She really loves to be out and explore and she put a smile on my face knowing how much she enjoyed herself. She connects well with you and pulls at your heart strings.

The very patient Clara waiting to be checked over by our Vet who thought she was just beautiful and took her picture she was a good girl and no complaints with being examined. When she wanted to walk made such a sweet sound it sounded like it was coming from a pup and not our big Clara. Off for her walk and one happy girl.

Jumbo – 1-4 year old male Mastiff

Jumbo very large Mastiff boy of approx 1 to 4 years of age. Jumbo is an awesome sight, big , beautiful and a real head turner. His pics do not show how big he is and anyone considering adopting him will need to take into account the shear space he will take up in the home. He will need an owner who is relatively fit physically as he is a powerful lad. Jumbo, despite his size, is pretty well behaved, he responds well to a handler who can show leadership and, once who is in charge has been established, he walks pretty well on the lead. He would respond well to reward based training and he already knows the ‘sit’ command. Jumbo is a softy at heart and likes to give big wet kisses, he takes treats gently and is a bit of a gentle giant. Jumbo gets on well with his female kennel mate.

UPDATE: From one of our volunteers
I walked this giant chap earlier in the week and, yes, he is very strong but he didn’t pull hard for long. I took him out on a normal lead and it took a couple of minutes for us to settle into a pace we were both happy with – somewhere around a medium-fast walking pace. Jumbo didn’t sniff that much of the hedgerow – he seemed quite fixed on the distance ahead and wanted to get the maximum distance out of his 45 minutes outside the kennels.

We did break into a jog for a short while but he preferred to walk, in truth. As we rounded one corner, a bunch of squirrels were running around on the ground. Jumbo wanted to chase and took me with him for the first few steps, but soon responded to a firm “no” and me digging my heels in. He likes his doggy choccy treats but they look somehow out of place next to his mouth – he’s a very big guy but very lovable, too. Jumbo passed other large dogs very well and showed no interest in what they were doing. Jumbo was no trouble at all to put back into his kennel and I look forward to taking him out again soon.

Beam – 7 year old female Mastiff

Beam came into our care after she had served her 7 days in the pound and was due to be destroyed. As a large dog her home offers are limited, as a older large dog this lessens even more, but do consider our beautiful girl. Beam is a stunning looking girl, she is majestic to walk, although strong on the lead at first after her initial burst has worn of she is much easier.

Beam has had some previous training and knows some basic commands, she gets on well with her large male canine kennel mate. She loves people and adores a fuss, she wriggles and grins and almost bursts with pleasure when she is receiving a fuss, she is a happy girl and her tail is constantly wagging. Beam would make a wonderful companion.
