MORTIMER's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

MORTIMER's Story...
[ADOPTION PENDING. NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.] UPDATE (3/11/13): MORTIMER CONTINUES TO CHALLENGE US. HIS EYES HAVE BEEN FIXED. HE'S BEEN NEUTERED. HE'S GAINING WEIGHT. THE LAST HURDLE IS AN ANNOYING SKIN CONDITION WHICH CAUSED HIM TO LOSE MUCH OF HIS HAIR. HE LOOKS POSITIVELY PATHETIC . BUT IT IS SLOWING RESPONDING TO TREATMENT AND HIS HAIR IS FINALLY GROWING BACK IN.

OUR BEST ESTIMATE IS THAT HE WILL LIKELY BE HERE THROUGH THE MIDDLE OR END OF APRIL.

WE'VE HAD BOATLOADS OF INTEREST IN MORTIMER AND WHILE WE (AND HE) ARE ANXIOUS FOR HIM TO MOVE ON TO A FOREVER HOME, WE WON'T RELEASE HIM FOR ADOPTION UNTIL HE'S 100%.

WE VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE.

UPDATE (1/12/13): Mortimer had his eye surgery a few days ago so once his sutures are removed he'll be ready to leave here. He's already feeling better (but he's not too crazy about the lampshade we put on his head so he can't rub those eyes.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Say hello to our new boy, Mortimer. At only nine months of age he's a big goofball, but make no mistake -- this boy is strong and confident and he knows what he wants. He's a roughcoat (longhair) and is housetrained. He's been vaccinated and microchipped, and was recently neutered. He is negative for heartworm, Lyme disease and ehrlichia. He has a minor eye abnormality called entropion (common in this breed) for which he will have corrective surgery before he leaves here. Mortimer's quite thin at the moment; however, he's eating like a piglet and we're confident we'll soon have him up to an acceptable weight. It'll be interesting to see how he fills out as he has ENORMOUS paws. He's a handsome boy who gives new meaning to the term "bed head" .

Mortimer would do well in a home with another dog (female, please) and he'll probably be okay with cats, though he hasn't yet met one here at Camp Saint Rescue. He likes children; however, kids should be over age 10 or 12.

Mortimer is a friendly fellow. He would like a human to take him for walks so he can see the sights. Though he currently pulls on leash, he will improve once he has a few obedience lessons under his belt.

We'd like Mortimer to have a traditional fenced yard and large- or giant-breed experience would be a definite plus.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MORTIMER, a Sudbury St. Bernard puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a St. Bernard for sale in Sudbury, or seeking a St. Bernard puppy from a breeder in Sudbury.

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