Radar is a stunning guy. He is a huge English mastiff, saint Bernard mix who we think may have a little Anatolian in him. He is a big guy with a heart of gold. He is a stunning orange and white with natural ears and docked tail. He is a great dog who just needs a home that will love him for who he is. He is a big dog and needs an owner that will set down rules for him as he is smart and likes to know what he can and can not do. He is a great dog who really is a charmer to be around. We adore the big lug.
Radar came to us when his family could no longer take care of him. He had been turned into a shelter when he was younger as the family that he had did not have a fence and he had been caught in a bear trap. He lost one toe due to it and had a scar on his head but escaped pretty uninjured considering. The family really did want what was best for him but was not one that could set down firm rules and he thought he was supposed to be the one in charge. All he needed was a leader. He is a great dog and a family that has big dog experience that can give him rules would make an amazing family pet. He is amazing and just wants to be somenes best friend.
Radar just wants to be part of the family. He does good with kids over 5, as he can be a big of a bull in a china shop. He doesn’t always watch where his feet are. He does good with other dogs and was often taken to the dog park. If his has an owner that makes sure he is not in control he would do great at the dog park. He loves to go for walks, rides, and just hang out. He is good with cats and loves to just hang out. He is a couch potato and a hiking buddy. He just wants to please. He is amazing and we adore him. He will wiggle his way into your home and your heart. He is a great dog and we adore him.
Radar is up to date, dewormed, flea treated, and altered. He is micochipped and a happy healthy guy. He is house broken, crate trained, does well on leash, loves to hang out and just a great dog. He is a happy go lucky buddy and would love to watch you garden or work in the shop. He does well with other animals and is just a great dog. Once he knows that he is not the boss he is happy to do what ever he is asked. He knows basic commands and is happy to listen to them. He loves to cuddle and snuggle on the couch. He is a great dog who just wants a family of his own.
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.
