My name is Vegas!
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, and up to date with shots.
From Vegas' foster:
Vegas is the most loveable knucklehead I’ve ever been around!! An 85lb Shar Pei/Bull Mastiff mix, around 3 years old, Vegas needs a patient, strong-willed owner who understands his hard headed ways. Vegas is a dominant male with a lot of ‘Mochismo!’ He walks with his head high & shoulders back and everyone he comes across knows…Vegas is The Man! Once you get to know him, he is really just a big teddy bear, who loves to cuddle and looks for your approval & satisfaction in everything he does. Vegas is full of energy and would do best with an active family or even with a ‘job’ of his own…whether that’s protecting a property (would do best on a large property with a big perimeter to patrol) or ‘managing’ a shop or warehouse all day. Vegas is a great companion dog!!
He was rescued at the last minute from Death Row in a Houston shelter TWICE, bounced around between temporary fosters & boarding until a spot opened up with his current foster, in November 2011, where he received the obedience training he needed. After a LOT of physical & emotional rehab, clearing up his medical issues and ongoing training, Vegas is more than ready to go to a forever home of his own. He’s a dog that will bond with you deeply and never leave your side. He gets along great with people but will need to be monitored around other dominant males and very submissive or insecure females. He loves to play rough with other dogs (wrestle at a high level) so larger dogs would be ideal. He needs more stimulation (human & dog interactions, walks, play time, personal attention, etc) that his foster can currently provide. Can you give Vegas the home he deserves? If so, please fill out an adoption application on our website (www.forgottendogs.org/adoption_application) or email firstname.lastname@example.org Be sure to specify that you are looking for Vegas.
