TONKA's Story...
Five-year-old Tonka is a big beefy boy that loves to take it easy and relax. He needs a home with children 16 and up. Volunteer Gillian fostered Tonka, here is her report: Tonka stayed with us for a couple weeks as he was stressed and getting thin in the kennel. He was an incredibly friendly dog, all he wanted was MORE petting! He was very happy to have people around to pet him and followed me around the house wagging his tail. He was a tall and strong dog, he learned to walk on the leash quickly, I would consider a head halter type collar for walking him as he tended to pull. He was a great hiking partner and did the blue trail at Sleeping Giant no problem. He was very calm and friendly meeting new dogs, and always happy to meet people. He never had any mean or defensive behaviors. He is a big guy that would love a home to call his own.NO APPOINTMENTS NEEDED.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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