Mello Yellow's Story...
I am truly a very sweet boy found in high kill shelter on death row and I'm now properly named Mellow Yellow, as much as I love to be playful, I am also quite chill and laid back. Since my birth parents are not in my life, I believe I am Mastiff and Sharpei mix, approximately 2 years old and currently weigh a gentle 90 lbs, even though I am quite large, I do believe I'm fully grown. I enjoy playing with humans, especially my foster daddy. I look forward to romping around the dog parks, meeting new people and their dogs as well. We believe I was previously an outdoor dog, as I just learned the difference between concrete, wood, tile, and carpet flooring. I love to be lazy and relax indoors where I feel safe and loved. I was very cold and scared, but now I'd love it if you would let me enjoy being allowed to live my life with access to some comfortable furniture, as I came with large calluses on my body, evidence I was living 24/7 on concrete with no bed, blanket, nothing. I'm currently learning not all humans are going to hurt or abandon me, and learning to trust after I spent much of my short life so far, in long long periods of loneliness. My calluses along with my heart and spirit are on the mend :-) I look forward to going with the dog school and exploring dog parks with a pack of pups several times each week. Even more than that, I love knowing I will be fed AM and PM meals every day. This is my chance at a new, positive, exciting, and comfortable life, will you love and care for me forever??? Please?? My rescuers tell me now they had the pleasure of watching my eyes transform overnight from fearful for my life to grateful for a new one. If you're looking for a big dog that's an even bigger sweetheart then PICK ME PICK ME please, I am the dog for you. As with every rescue pup, it will take a little work earning trust and building an incredible human-canine relationship but it is more then rewarding. I am now off to an amazing start enjoying my new foster home. If you're ready to consider making the forever commitment for me, please fill out an adoption application. Please let us know if you have any questions about me, Mello Yellow.

His adoption fee is $250 to a loving home. Mello is neutered, micro chipped and up to date on shots. Home visits and references are required on all adoptions. If you would like more information about our rescue and our dogs, including more photos, visit our website at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mello Yellow, a Lakewood Mastiff/Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff/Shar Pei for sale in Lakewood, or seeking a Mastiff/Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Lakewood.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lakewood 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 Lakewood 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/Shar Pei breeders who help with Mastiff/Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lakewood paves the way for another one to be saved.
