Ted's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, and up to date with shots.

Ted's Story...
*We will only adopt within a 60 mile radius of Chicago, IL*

The adoption fee for Ted is $500.00

Our adoption fee includes: neuter/spay, age appropriate shots, microchipping, and any other medical care this dog may need while he/she is with us.

Ted is a purebred African Boerboel. He is a big, 140 lb guy that is playful and happy. Ted is just under two years old. He will need a dedicated owner that will be firm with him. Everyone that meets him, falls in love!
He would do best in a home with a female dog and we would recommend no cats or small dogs, as well as no small children, ONLY due to his size. He's a sweetheart but doesn't realize how big he is. Please research the breed thoroughly if you're unfamiliar with the breed.

If you have any questions, are interested in meeting this dog or are considering adoption, please send us an email at:

***Obedience training is mandatory for all dogs adopted from our rescue. The choice of trainer is up to the adopter, unless otherwise noted in the bio. We do require an obedience deposit check in the amount of $200.00 at the time of adoption.

This is a refundable deposit. The check is stapled to the adoption contract and held in a file until we receive proof of completion for your training program.

The check will not be cashed if you complete training and provide us with proof, at which time the check is mailed back to you. The check will only be cashed if you do not complete training!***

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ted, a Calumet City Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff for sale in Calumet City, or seeking a Mastiff dog from a breeder in Calumet City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Calumet City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Calumet City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mastiff breeders who help with Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Calumet City paves the way for another one to be saved.
