Brax is a huge boy who still has so much growing to do. He is going to be MASSIVE. He is not even a year old yet. We suspect him to be English mastiff Cane corso. He has all the size of the mastiff but the head of the corso. He is a giant boy, but he has a personality the size of texas! So all the more of him to love. He is a great dog who needs a family that can handle a dog who is a bit timid at first. He has had a really rough past and we are thrilled we are able to help him. He is an amazing boy.

Brax came to us from a high kill shelter. They had seized him and his brother when they were left to fend for themselves. They moved out and left the two puppies there. Brax brother was not as scared as he was, so another rescue pulled him and left him. The shelter worked with him a lot and really wanted to see the best for this guy. So we are glad we were able to help. The shelter really does the best they can for the dogs, but there are so many that they have no choice but to put some down.

Brax is a ham. He loves to have a good time, hang out, and just have fun. He is timid with new people at first so he needs a family that understands that can move slow. He would do best in a home without kids under 10 due to his fear. He does well with other dogs, but needs a slow intro or paired with a dog who is not going to try and dominate him. He loves to play and have a good time but is learning how to play with toys. He is a great dog who just wants to have a family that will love him for who he is. He is a great dog and we adore him.

Brax is up to date, dewormed, flea treated and micro chipped. He is working on house breaking, crate training and basic commands. He is starting to work on leash manners, but still needs a owner who will work with him. He is a bit of a puller and needs a training collar. He is a great dog and we adore him but he just needs a home that will spend time to build a great bond with him, and he will be an amazing friend and love you forever. He just needs a great home and he will blossom into an amazing forever friend.


We spend a lot of time trying to get to know the dogs in our program as best as we can. This means that we have spent time introducing them to dogs, cats, kids, animals, people and as many things as we can. We try to do as much as we can to evaluate them, both with in our group and if the dogs come from other rescues or shelters their evaluations as well. However dogs are individuals and will react to different situations differently. This means that we do not know how a dog will react in every situation. We give out our best guess based off information provided but the handler of a dog and the way they are introduced to a situation makes a huge impact. So if you have any questions of how to introduce a dog to your home, please let us know and we will provide as much info as we can from pamphlets to helping find a trainer in your area. 

Our rescue aims to help dogs who are passed by and over looked by most rescues and people. We help the dogs who are in need of medical care, vetting, training and breeds that most will not help with. In most shelters if you are large dog, a big dog, or a male dog; from the moment you walk in you are on barrowed time. If you have docked ears or are a guardian breed your time was over before you walked in the doors. We aim to save these dogs and give them a second chance. Please help us save more lives by helping with our medical bills as they grow. This year has already been hard and we have many medical dogs in need.


If you would like to adopt this pet please send us an email. Applications will be sent to you via email. We do our best to get back to emails in 24 hrs.

If you are inquiring on a specific pet we do ask that you put the name of the pet in the subject line. So we know who it is that you are inquiring regarding. Thank you in advance for understanding as we work through this.

As with any rescue we are always in need of donations. MANY of our dogs come in with special needs or medical issues. These need to be resolved before going home.

We are always in need of dog food, soft food for some of our special needs dogs, collars, leashes, crates, and toys!

About Rising Phoenix Mastiff Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a no kill non profit mastiff rescue. We work with all breeds of mastiffs including rare breeds and power breeds of mastiffs. Such as Presa, Fila, Corso, Tosa, Dogo, Ect. We are founded by a small group of dedicated people who have a passion for large breed dogs. We often take in animals who are not mastiffs if there is a need. We work with both purebred dogs and mix breeds. We also work with dogs who need further training since many dogs that come in are simply in need of medical care and training. We also work on educating the public to these breeds and helping owners train and help with the dogs they have so that not all are put into rescue. Sometimes the best home is the one they are already in. We spend alot of time on education. We were founded because there was a lack of help for many of the misunderstood mastiff breeds. Many were dieing in shelters and refused by rescues becuase they did not understand the breed. We felt the need so we offered to help.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All our adoptions are set up by appointment only. Our dogs are kept in foster homes. Not in a rescue center. This is so we can get to know everyone better. Because of this we can only do adoptions by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

We require all adopters to fill out an adoption application for the pet they are inquiring about. This gives us basic info if the dog they are interested in even fits their lifestyle. If that is passed we do a home check, and background check as best as we can in the area. We also contact their vets for any info on their current or past animals. If things go well from there we do require them to come meet and greet the animal they are adopting. In some cases its easier for us to bring the animal to them, and that can be done as well to see how everyone gets along. If that goes well we have an adoption contract that must be signed. We require different things for every animal depending on their exact needs. Some cant be around kids, cats, other dogs ect. Some can. But everyone is required to have a fenced yard, Own their home or they must have proof from their landlord that states that the animal is allowed there. Our adoption fees are based on the animal. They help cover the vaccine, alter, vet check, training, and care of the animal. Also they sometimes help on further medical care if more is needed.
