Nelson's Story...
Nelson is approximately 5 years old and is a neutered male Dogue de Bordeaux Mastiff. Nelson needs to find a home with adults only or maybe with older children. He was rescued from a local pound. He was starving and in bad physical condition, including being positive for heartworm. He has been treated for heartworm and has been residing with some people who have a dog training business. He is a big goofy dog that loves attention from people and he loves going for rides in the car. He is fine with other dogs and cats. He can get grumpy if he is bothered while sleeping and also when told to go into a crate but he doesn’t cause any harm, he just protests.

Note: We are an all volunteer organization and will not respond to brief e-mail requests for more information about a dog. If you are interested in adopting, please fill out and submit our online application. Vet and personal references will be checked and a home visit is required.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, up to date on all vaccinations, heartworm tested, on heartworm preventative year-round, and microchipped for identification.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nelson, a Belleville Dogue de Bordeaux/Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dogue de Bordeaux/Mastiff for sale in Belleville, or seeking a Dogue de Bordeaux/Mastiff dog from a breeder in Belleville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Belleville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Belleville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dogue de Bordeaux/Mastiff breeders who help with Dogue de Bordeaux/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Belleville paves the way for another one to be saved.
