cOURTESY POST Haley is approximately a 6 1/2 year old Bull Mastiff with AKC papers. She is currently 68.1 lbs and stands 21 inches tall at top of her shoulder. We acquired Haley in May 2007 from a family in Springboro, OH. She lived outdoors with 3 other bull mastiffs and was fed 1 dish of food among all 3 dogs daily and watered every other day. Her fur was falling out, her jaw had been broken, and she was extremely malnourished when we took her from her first home. After getting her proper medical care, nutrition, and tender loving care she has been a very sweet dog. Unfortunately, a few months ago she growled at our daughter and now today she had an altercation with one of our boxers. We are not sure what happened in either situation but cannot take any chances with our children's safety.
Most of the time Haley lounges on her futon and comes to visit when she wants some affection. When she goes outside she likes to bark at the wind and jump around and play like a puppy. She is still skittish when things are rearranged, the wind blows a lot or loud thunder rolls but overall she is very laid back. Haley is housebroken and can hold her bladder for an extended period if necessary. She likes to take walks, go on car rides, go boating and camping. She eats IAMS premium mature food. She is up to date on all shots, heart worm preventive and flee/tick treatment. She does take Proin 50mg 2x/day for urinary incontinence and currently has a fatty deposit on her right hip.
Overall, Haley is a passive dog and these aggressive instances may not have been her fault. We are greatly sadden to have to make this decision to try to find her a new home but we feel that if you can find a home that can give her more affection and attention then we cannot give at this time she would be a great loyal loving companion for someone.
With a sadden heart, thanks for your assistance. family decided tong=keep her at this time 12-7-12
