Froggie is a Mastiff cross Cane Corso recently returned to rescue. This lovely boy is about 4 years old and was picked up as a stray 3 years ago and luckily for the owner, was never claimed. On arrival he had a chunk out of his eyebrow that was bleeding badly. He had burns on his stomach and old scar injuries which looked like wire marks on the bridge of his nose. He was terrified of people and would cower if you went near to him. He was scared of leads and scared of a raised voice. Whoever owned him before had beaten him so badly that he was a wreck. He made amazing progress and was returned because his owner started a family after she adopted him from us. Froggie is not confident around children and prefers an adult handler, although he is safe to walk publicly. His nerves only show when in the home.
He is great with the other dogs and although excitable. He does prefer smaller dogs, but would happily live with a large breed bitch. He is very cuddly and bonds very well with his handler. He is so loyal that I know whoever carried out the disgusting cruelty that this dog suffered, must have really hurt him for him to run away from them. He does need a lot of work when out and about on walks. He stays on lead here and can be clumsy with other dogs. He therefore needs someone strong enough to hold him on walks. Allowed to meet and greet other dogs, he is actually very dog friendly. Froggie is best homed without cats.
Froggie has been castrated, vaccinated, microchipped, defleaed and wormed. A homecheck will be carried out and minimum adoption fee of £150 applies.
