Bo is a 2-3 year old 105 lb male Mastiff. For such a large dog he is the most gentle thing you'll ever meet. Bo was turned in by his owner but we do not know why, maybe the food bill was too high? lol. On October 15th Bo was placed on a transport and headed to Illinois, which is when we began fostering him. What we can tell you after a couple of days is that Bo is a great looking dog who is a very loyal, lovable dog and has a big heart. He just loves being around people and in your lap. Yep a 110 lap dog. His tail is always wagging and he loves the attention he gets. Mastiff's are known to be extremely kid friendly dogs and affectionate with family but just remember Bo is an extremely large dog and may unintentionally knock someone over.
His first couple of days were about as good as could be expected. Bo is learning the routine where first thing in the morning we get up, go outside and go to the bathroom, then come inside and eat breakfast. We are teaching him some manners and have him sit before we feed him, which he already knows how to do so that was easy. Bo would do great in a home with another dog or would be fine by himself. We have a 65 lb German Shepherd mix of our own and Bo's sister, Elsa (who is up for adoption at and the three dogs are fine together. Bo doesn't seem to interested in toys, ropes, nylabones or playing fetch in the yard. He has shown no aggression with food or treats. We feed all the dogs together and they share a water bowl and we've had no problems to date. We've taken Bo on a walk and he did ok. He's just a big strong boy who will need some leash work.
Bo is crate trained and currently goes in there if we leave the house. He's been excellent going in there without issue. Bo appears to be mostly potty trained and has not had an accident or tried to mark in the house. As with all new dogs we keep an eye on him and make sure he is let outside and gets into that routine we are looking for. Basically all Bo wants is to be loved, played with, and given some attention. Bo really enjoys being near you and will climb right up on the couch with you and keep you company. Bo is the perfect height to go counter surfing. Basically his head will rest right on our kitchen table and he has no problem getting on the counter tops if he wants to.
I would say Bo has a low to medium level of energy and would do great in just about any type of home. If you want him to play in short spurts he can but the nice part is he can relax nicely and be very calm. I certainly see him being able to go for a walk around the block with you. Bo enjoys the outdoors and roaming around our fenced in backyard. It would do Bo some good to have someone that is willing to take him on daily walks to keep him in shape. This handsome guy deserves a forever home and would make a great addition to your family. Bo is up to date on all his vaccinations, has been neutered and is micro-chipped.
