This handsome 4 yr old Bullmastiff wants you know straight off that his vision impairment (he see’s some shadow and movement) in no way interferes with his ability to be all things “Dog”. He loves to be right in the middle of the action and is just ‘one of the gang’ in his multiple, large dog foster home. He was very quick to memorize his environment and moves around the house and yard like he’s lived there forever. He usually leads the pack on their nighttime “possum hunts” and loves to patrol the yard several times a day. In fact, his Foster Mom has to keep an eye out to head him off from his daredevil ways!
Neo is an easy, low energy lap dog at heart. He loves to be around people and makes a great cuddle buddy on the couch. He also enjoys a good living room wrestle session with one or more of his foster brothers between naps. He is a huge fan of dinner leftovers and will rush to the kitchen with the other dogs, sitting politely for his turn. He is excellent in the house and is fine with free roam or being crated. Neo is very well behaved in most things and will listen to a gentle “no”.
Due to abuse he suffered prior to coming to The Bullpen, Neo does have some mild kidney damage that requires him to eat a special food with supplements to help his kidneys function optimally. Continuing this regime is a non-negotiable condition of his adoption and costs
approximately $120 a month.
Neo is happy and healthy in his foster home but we’d love for him to find a forever home. His vision issues are probably the result of PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy) and is irreversible. He currently sees some shadows and movement but there is no way of knowing if he will lose the bit he has left. He can do stairs but more than 5 or 6 at a time would need to be supervised so easy access to a backyard is necessary.
Neo is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, crate trained, house trained and will need to continue his heart worm treatment in his new home.
We highly recommend that our potential adopters fill out an online application as soon as possible, as it greatly expedites the process of finding the right dog for your situation. The adoption app is available on our website (www.bullpenrescue.org) under the 'work with us' tab. If you choose not to fill out an application before inquiring about a particular dog, please briefly tell us about yourself, family, and lifestyle since this will help us determine if the dog you’re interested in is a good match.
Our dogs are available for adoption nationwide but preference is given to adopters willing to do an in-person meeting. Please understand that our dogs are not adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but rather we strive for a “perfect placement” so we know that they will not be failed again.
