Marshal is a stunning English mastiff boy. He is a huge lover and everyone falls in love with him. He is a huge fawn boy with natural ears and tail. He is a stunning guy and still looks like he has some growing to do. He is a great dog and we adore him and his happier then life attitude. He is a charmer and we can not thank the people who saved him enough. He is a great dog and we adore him. He is going to make a family really really happy. We adore the big lug. He is still a puppy at heart and weighing almost 150 lbs means he is alot of dog and may need a home that can handle his happy personality and his size. 

Marshal came to us from a vet clinic who could not put him down. The owners had purchased him as a puppy, and we hope that they cared about him and loved him. But we doubt it. They left him outside where he was alone and bored. When he had no one to spend time with him he decided to take himself for a walk and find someone. His owners decided that they didn’t have time to spend with him and rather then putting him up for adoption or looking for a rescue, that was to much work, they just took him to the vet to be put to sleep. At bearly 18 mo he was going to die, because he was not little and cute any more. Don’t tell him that, we think hes adorable! Thank goodness for us and for him the vet could not do it. So they called and asked for help. What an amazing dog he is. We are so happy to meet him.

Marshal is a great boy. He loves to be the life of the party and was loving his time at the vet clinic being doted on by all kinds of people. He loves to go for walks, trips to the pet store, and just have a good time. He is a charmer in the car and does great. He is a sweet guy with people and kids and just amazing. Due to his size we suggest kids over 8 since he can knock them over. He also has no respect for personal boundaries and likes to grab at your hands, clothing, and legs with his mouth. This would hurt a small child, he doesnt do it to be mean, but was never taught that puppy mouthing is not ok. We do not want to put small kids at risk, so he can not go to a home with small kids. He is good with dogs but can be confused by them at first. So we suggest dogs over 50 lbs, he also seems good with cats. He is over excited when he meets new dogs, so he will need a slow intro with new dogs. He just wants to be someone’s cuddle buddy. He is super smart and does about anything for a cookies. He is a silly guy who just wants to have a good time and a family that will spend time with him.

Marshal is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, altered and micro chipped. He is a stunning boy and easy to love. He doesn’t seem to have any health issues and is house broken, crate trained, and does well on leash. He does great with basic commands but they are still new to him and he is learning them. He is great with dogs once he has had a time to adjust to them. He also seems to be ok with cats with an intro. He does great with men and women, but is a little timid at first with big men. Most mastiffs are. He is a stunning charming boy who is going to steal the heart of someone.

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.

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.
