Foster is fabulous. Plain and simple, he is a smart, handsome, funny dog who needs just the right home. Foster hasn't had an easy life. It's clear from the collar scar around his neck that he was kept tied. He's also heartworm positive (doing great with the treatment), and has a slight hitch in his step from an old injury that wasn't treated. He will likely need to be on meds to help with this for the rest of his life. The good news is that they are inexpensive. Foster has a lot of calluses. Now, the good parts........ Foster walks really well on lead. He loves going for walks, although he'll never be a jogging partner. Foster loves people. He just wants to hang out. Amazingly, he does not mark inside and never has. He likes going for rides in the car. He thinks McDonalds is a great place! Foster is smart and bullheaded. He needs a strong owner who can manage his tendency to shove things around as he sees fit. If left to his own devices, he finds creative ways to keep himself entertained. Foster is dominant and territorial and should be an only pet, although he is civil and even friendly to dogs outside the home (as long as they are civil to him). Foster doesn't have a strong prey drive, but he is a lot of dog who is not for beginners. We and the vets estimate his age to be about 5 years. Because of his size and strength, we'd prefer to place him in an experienced adult home, or with children over 12. Foster is neutered, microchipped and vaccinations are current.

About American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service - North Port, FL
The American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Service's (ABARS) mission is to find homes for unwanted Bullmastiffs that come from shelters or are owner surrenders from people whose lifestyle or financial situation has changed. Occasionally ABARS will get Bullmastiffs that have been abandoned at a local veterinarian's or from a good citizen that has found the dog and exhausted all means to locate the dog's owner. ABARS is not a placement service for our members' unwanted or returned dogs. We do accept owner surrenders from people who have purchased their dogs at pet shops or backyard breeders, but most of the dogs we place are of unknown origin and unknown age. ABARS will not rehome a Bullmastiff that has any history of aggression to adults or children. ABARS cannot accept for placement dogs that are Bullmastiffs mixes - we only take dogs that are known to be Bullmastiffs or can be represented as such. The Bullmastiffs are neutered or spayed before they are adopted and receive all the vet care they need so they can be represented as being in good health.
