Gideon's Info...

Gideon's Story...
Our little miracle boy is happy and healthy and thrilled to be introduced as this week's Dog of the Week! Please meet Gideon! It is said that Gideon was the Hero of Faith. And there isn't a name that could be more fitting for our little angel. Our little Gideon was found in the tall grass by a little boy whose father was mowing. If not for that little boy, his story would be very different. When they got him to the shelter, his umbilical cord was still wet and hanging, letting us know that he was only a few hours old. Gideon was a fighter from the word go. As you can clearly tell, he never had a bit of trouble latching on to his bottle, and he has never missed a meal. Now, at 5 weeks old, he is very robust and healthy, and ready to go to a very special family. Due to his big bone structure and buffness that looks like he has been raised in a gym, we are certain that he will grow up to be a big boy. He may even have some Mastiff somewhere in his family tree. But for all the muscles in those little legs, the muscles in his heart are even bigger. He is just a lover. Since Gideon doesn't have the benefit of having his birth mom, we feel that now would be a great time for our little guy to bond to his human family. The perfect age for training is just right around the corner and we have no doubt that he is going to be a great addition to a lucky family. Is there a great family out there who is looking for the perfect little chunky monkey to join the ranks of their family? If so, please come to the shelter and meet this very special little guy. Be sure that he will steal your heart, so only come if you are serious. I can promise you that you will fall in love. If you take one look at those beautiful eyes and know immediately that Gideon is exactly what you have been looking for and meant to be yours, please apply online at, and please be sure to share him with your friends! Until then, our sweet boy will be squeaking his toys and making us love him more with every passing minute. The sooner his family comes for him, the better!

Breed identification by visual means is unreliable for most dogs. We are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. Each dog at CARA is an individual and we do our best to describe each animal based on personality, not by breed label.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jackson 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 Jackson 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 Jackson paves the way for another one to be saved.
