Please take the time to read the entire profile. We spend alot of time putting as much info in them as possible. Thank you in advance.
Jagger is a truly handsome guy with a heart of gold. He is a huge blue corso/presa mix boy. He is a stunning guy with cropped ears and tail. He is a stunning dog who just wins the heart of all who meet him. He does need a home that is active enough to keep his antics under control. But he is really a gem of a dog who will adore every word you utter. He just wants someone to have as much of a zest for life as he does. He really just wants to be the center of someones world. He is a great dog and aims to please. He is a great dog who would go far with anyone who wants to spend time showing him the world. He is a great dog and we adore him.
Recently we took in a number of dogs from another rescue. These dogs were taken in by them and we did not get the full stories on many of them and their histories, as it seemed the rescue disbanded and these dogs were left with out any options. We do not pass judgment when helping dogs and will help dogs when in need. Many of these dogs came to us severely Emaciated. They also had wounds, abscesses, and parasites. We are getting them back to health and as we do we are getting to know them better and better. Gaining the amount of weight many of these giants needed is a slow process, and many of them will need to continue to gain weight for months still. Healthy weight takes time. We try not to gain more then 10 lbs a month of healthy weight. Some of these dogs were 60-70 lbs under weight. These are amazing dogs who deserve a great chance at a wonderful life. These dogs are amazing and cherish every shred of love, grain of food, and soft place to lay. We want nothing more then to give them a wonderful place and family to love them, and make their holiday wishes come true.
Jagger is a great dog with the right home. He does have a lot of prey drive and would do best in a home with no small kids and no small animals. He does great with dogs his own size. He also does great with kids over 10. He will chase smaller ones and we do not want to risk him hurting someone. He is a smart boy and loves to please and would do great as a hiking or riding buddy. He had been going out with a few vollunteers from Wounded Warriors for hikes and loved it! He is a great dog who aims to please and would love a home of his own. He just wants someone to be his best friend.
Jagger is up to date, dewormed, flea treated and altered. He is house broken, crate trained, does ok on leash and is working on basic commands. He is really food motivated, but sometimes the food is all he can think about. He is still very much a fast eater due to being so thin when he came to us, and may need time in his new home to understand that the food is going to stick around. He was emaciated when he came to us and it has taken a bit of time to get him back to gaining weight. He was full of worms, parasites and just a sick boy. He had some wounds and sores that have now healed. He is a great dog and learns fast. Once he knows you are his person he is loyal to a fault. He wants to make you happy and learn everything he can. He is an amazing dog and with a little work will be an amazing pet. Plus he is pretty handsome too. We have not seen any health issues other then still gaining weight. We have not seen any aggression, but he does like to chase things that run. He is a happy healthy guy who just needs a home for the holidays.
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.
