Say hello to Guinea, a sweet pup with a beautiful, wrinkly face just begging for kisses! Guinea arrived at The Barking Lot with small group of dogs from Mexico. A ranch received Guinea as a gift several months back, but could not keep her and gave her to a local rescuer, who then gave her to us in the hopes that we could find her the perfect forever home. At 3 and a half years old as of summer 2017, this American Staffordshire Terrier/Italian Mastiff (Cane Corso) mix is exactly the reason why the phrase “gentle giant” was created. Guinea is an incredibly sweet and affectionate dog, with a lovely mellow temperament that would make her the perfect fit for any home. She came to us pretty overweight at about 90 pounds, and we are working towards her ideal weight which is probably closer to 80 pounds. Given her size, Guinea would do best in a home with adults or older kids who aren't easily knocked over. Guinea has a beautiful, short, easy-to-care-for blue-ish/gray coat and an adorable smushy face that you can’t help but squeeze a little. She currently belongs to a play group of two similarly-sized buddies, and we’ve also been told that she’s cat friendly! Guinea knows basic commands, is leash trained, and enjoys going on group hikes with K9rs on the weekends. Guinea would love a home that believes in leisurely strolls around the neighborhood and binge watching shows on Netflix while cuddling on the couch. If you’re looking for a big, awesome, gentle girl to share your home and heart with, submit an adoption app for Guinea today!
