Sheila's Story...
12/5/2011Sheila is a 2 year old female fawn natural eared South African Boerboel adopt a pet does not have this breed in their system. She came to us from New York City Animal Care and Control. She is a very sweet girl that is going to need some TLC before she can be adopted out BUT she will make a great addition to the right home. She is very mellow and loves people. She is great with children and larger dogs. She needs to go to a home with NO CATS and no smaller dogs. Anything over 40 lbs she will be ok with but she has a high prey drive and anything small she associates with a cat.
12/6/2011 Sheila went to the vet today for her first appointment after her transport this past weekend. She is scheduled to get her cherry eye surgery next week and to be spayed. In about a month from then she will need to go back and have her teeth cleaned as she has a lot of plaque buildup from eating really bad food until she came to us! Her surgery will put her out of commission for about a month to ensure that the sutures do not come back out after the surgery is completed. If you are interested in adopting this girl please fill out an adoption application. If the right home comes along that understands her needs post surgery we are willing to put her into an adoptive home on a temporary foster contract until after she is healed from her eye surgery. She is a wonderful girl, crate trained, house broken, micro-chipped, spayed(next week), up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and on prevention as well flea and tick control which she will continue to get on a monthly basis while in rescue. Please visit our website and fill out an application if you are interested in adopting this great girl!!!

1/3/2012 Sheila went in for her cherry eye surgery and her spay today. Everything went very well and she is resting comfortably in her foster home. She will be going back next week for a follow up to ensure that her eyes are healing properly.
1/10/2012 Sheila went in for her followup appointment today and was perscribed some extra antibiotics and sedatives to keep her little wiggly butt from going all over the place.
1/17/2012 Sheila went for her last followup appointment for her eyes today. The Doc said that she is looking great and they should only get better from here over the next two months. Sheila is now available to an approved home. She will continue to work on walking on the leash and well as her prey drive towards small animals.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sheila, a Virginia Beach Mastiff dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff for sale in Virginia Beach, or seeking a Mastiff dog from a breeder in Virginia Beach.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach 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 Mastiff breeders who help with Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Virginia Beach paves the way for another one to be saved.
