Mama Mia is a beautiful example of the Mastiff breed. Fostered in Columbus OH. She came into rescue from a tied out situation, full of fleas and ticks. Why people would have such a beauty on a chain is always a mystery. She deserves an indoor home and a soft bed, good food....
Mia is very reserved with new people... until you bring out the treats! Once she warms up to you she's happy, silly, and wants nothing more than to snuggle with you. She lived with other dogs in her previous life and in has two small doggie friends in her foster home, but we are asking that she only go to a home with a large, laid-back male dog. She's been around cats at the hospital that had been caring for her and paid little attention to them, but she wasn't allowed to interact with them so we can't say, definitively, that she is okay with kitties, so unfortunately she will need to be in a kitty free home.
A home with children over 12 years old is also a requirement for Mama Mia. She doesn't like loud noises and as stated above, she is a reserved gal with new people.
Mia's favorite hobbies include:
Playing with her Nylabones or rope toy
Sunbathing in the yard
And of course, midnight snacks!
