Hi there. My name is Hope. I am up to date with vaccines and spayed. I am a Mastiff X (foster mom says Husky!) who for whatever reason, landed myself in a shelter. Thankfully, Homeward Bound rescued me and gave me a chance to find my forever family. My foster mom says that I am a big cuddle bug who will actually wrap my paws around you and close my eyes to give you as big a hug as possible. I am always at my foster humans' feet and love to be around them as much as possible. Given that I am part Husky, I LOVE the outdoors! I love to play and run and chase my foster brother around the yard. I am quite the jumper and runner given my lean physique and 'mush dog' genes and would certainly need a high, fenced in yard to avoid me jumping the fence and getting lost. I am house trained but sometimes get so excited when my foster humans come home that I accidentally piddle a little bit. Sorry...I am still quite young and excitable. This will change as I mature I'm sure of it. I am a little nervous when first meeting new dogs and can get a little agitated if I am introduced too quickly and not given time to adjust. I do not bite but will certainly let other dogs know that they are bothering me and to back off. I do like my own space and would prefer to be around humans rather than other dogs. I definitely do not like dominant male dogs and would prefer a home with a more submissive/laid back/smaller dog(s). My foster brother is that kind of dog and we play and cuddle together all the time. I can be a bit whiny if I am left alone. This is also my cue for 'I need to go to the bathroom'. I am crate trained and do just fine in a crate. My foster mom tells me I have an excellent recall and am doing fantastic with leash training (she says I'm much smarter than my foster brother but I'm not allowed to tell him she said that). I am continuing to learn manners and recently learned how to 'roll over' in minutes, but only for peanut butter. My foster parents are working with me and say I am showing improvements every day-not that I have bad manners I just haven't had much stability and training. As long as I keep getting peanut butter, I will show as many improvements as possible! I am very attached to my 16 year old foster sister (mainly because she lets me sleep in her big comfy bed). Just so I have the best opportunity possible at finding my forever home, I would probably be better off in a home with children over 12 as I have not been around small children to know whether I like them or not. What else can I say...come meet me for a hug :)'*Hope is being fostered in Oshawa*

About Homeward Bound Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue mainly Bulldogs and other flat faced dogs!!!! We love the breeds and know they sometimes need extra care and love. Before you consider any of these breeds you should get familiar with the terms; cherry eye, entropian, dry eye, heat stroke, bloat, cruciate and know that sometimes these breeds can develop or have these issues. Also remember they drool, snore, pass gas and breath heavy this is not for everyone, but for us it is normal!
