Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Fill out an Adoption Application Lily is an approximately 100lb Presa Canario female. She's a young lady with a long slender build, but also folds herself up for easy storage. She has a soft silky dark brindle coat, and intact ears, a rarity for a Presa. This lovely girl was found wandering the streets in North Jersey, so we don’t know much about her backstory. She was born approximately November 2023 and is currently located in King of Prussia, PA. Likes: She enjoys hanging with her pack (human and otherwise) most of all. Other likes include receiving food rewards, belly rubs, bear hugs, being smushed, eating carrot and apple pieces, kong toys. Dislikes: Being alone, having her rear end petted (she will let you know by gently taking your hand in her mouth). Lily does not like unfamiliar people or dogs. Personality: She is energetic, playful, engaging, and athletic. She thrives on personal attention. She is mostly focused on her people and is extremely loyal. She is smart and food motivated, which makes training easy and fun. She is generally calm in the house, so long as she has her regular walks and exercise.  Temperament: Lily would benefit from developing more confidence. She is anxious in new situations or when overstimulated. Lily will test boundaries with familiar people and other dogs. Her owner must be consistent and attentive. She is very food motivated. She is not independent, she wants to be with her pack. No food or resource guarding aggression. Just a little jealousy over human attention. Energy level: Lily is a medium energy dog. She needs a 30 minute brisk paced morning walk and a 30 minute evening walk. She walks between 1 and 2 miles a day. She sometimes does zoomies and fetch in the backyard. Favorite activities: Going for walks and sniffaris, getting food out of a treat toy, puzzle, or Kong. Any training involving food rewards, jumping up for things like toys or sticks, rough housing with a dog. Hanging out watching tv with you on the couch. Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?:  Lily has a prey drive, and even though it is low, she would initially chase a cat or other small animals. However, she has learned to peacefully cohabitate with a chicken, so it is possible. She gets along well with her medium sized foster sibling dog, but Lily would need time to accept a new doggie friend. She would enjoy having an energetic dog her size to play with. She loves kids, particularly girls. She snuggled right up with her foster’s 7 year old niece. Not good with: She is suspicious of strange people, dogs, and sometimes cars. She will bark aggressively at people, dogs, and cars that come close on our walks. When a stranger tries to interact with her she will back away. With other dogs she tries to get to them. It is unknown if she would be aggressive with a strange dog or not. She sees these things as threats and is scared. She is also motivated to protect her family. Her foster has been working with her and a trainer to reduce these unwanted behaviors. With a familiar dog, she wants to play and will bark if a dog won’t engage with her. She will try to mount and dominance hump dogs too, but responds well to social cues and does not escalate. Housetrained: Yes, Lily is housetrained! The only times she has peed in the house is when she has been scared (vacuum cleaning, getting adjusted, etc.) Crate trained: Lily cannot be crated. Based on wear on her teeth, it is suspected that she was excessively crated at some point. Even with a filled Kong toy in there she gets anxious, drools, and licks the crate bars. When she first arrived her foster would confine her to the first floor with dog gates when leaving the house. She needs tall dog gates as she easily jumps the standard height ones. Now she is left her free in the home, but all food must be secured first. Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Yes, as a young athletic dog Lily needs a place for zoomies and playing fetch or chase. She doesn’t try to escape, she’s not independent like that. Walks well on a leash? Lily has made wonderful progress at loose leash walking. When she’s energetic, excited, or sees a deer she will pull. But mostly she is easy to walk. She gets lots of leash room to sniff and is rewarded for checking in with her handler. She knows how to heel with food rewards. Challenges: As mentioned above, she is stranger and dog reactive. She barks aggressively to scare people away.  Her foster has been working with a trainer to reduce these sensitivities using positive reinforcement and high value food rewards. Her prospective owner will need to continue work with her to discourage guarding behaviors both at home and on walks. When she gets excited, sometimes she will try to mount her foster or another dog. The behavior has lessened as it's been discouraged as she has integrated into her foster home over time. She can also be jealous of attention when another dog is receiving it, and will try to hump or block the other dog. She doesn’t like being left alone for long periods. Her foster often gives her a filled kong toy when leaving the house. She searches for food when she is left alone to manage her anxiety, so anything remotely edible needs to be put away. She is happiest in the presence of her human. She is an opportunist when it comes to food, so don’t turn your back on your plate or that loaf of bread on the counter. This behavior has lessened over the time she’s been in foster care, but it's a work in progress. If left alone in the kitchen, anything on the countertop is fair game to her. Any Medical issues? None!  She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations and preventatives. What would be the best kind of home? The best home would be one where Lily is not left alone for long periods. Her adopter should work part time or be able to take her with them to work. Her owner must be able to take her on walks twice a day and be consistent with her. Lily would enjoy being the center of attention or having the company of a similar sized dog friend. She would likely do best paired with a slightly older male who can help her with dog social skills. A nice sized fenced yard is a plus. She is suited to the suburbs or the country, and would not do well in an urban environment.   Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

History: Beaux was found as a stray so not much is known of his history but he has been an absolute joy to foster.   Personality: He is a loving, playful, and very silly boy. He does not have a mean bone in his body and is always up for clinging by your side.   Favorite Activities: Beaux is still a young pup and loves to play with other dogs.  He is also always ready to eat and taste mom's cooking. Medical Issues: He came into MTM a little underweight and still needs to put on about 10 pounds but he is otherwise healthy.  He did go in for an echocardiogram which demonstrated a normal cardiac structure and all of the cardiac wall thickness and chamber sizes were found to be within normal limits. What would be the best kind of home: Beau would love another large dog to play and romp around with and a fenced-in yard is preferred.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

Story
Lexi is a special girl. Unfortunately, she was part of a long-term case and has been at the shelter for 4 years that is 1,460 days! During her time with us we have grown to love Lexi and have learned a lot about her. She is a mastiff mix and weighs in at 100 pounds and is now around 8 years old. She is a gentle girl with those that she knows but will bark at new people and is aloof until she knows them better. She is somewhat of a diva and enjoys going outside to lay in the sunshine! She loves attention and enjoys getting butt scratches! Lexi will most likely need multiple visits to build a relationship with potential adopters before going home with them. At this time, she will be shown to adopters with approved applications and by appointment only due to her shy nature. Lexi does best with a routine and will need some time to adjust to a new one. An adult only home would be best for Lexi. Lexi deserves to find a loving forever home to spend her golden years in! Lexi has been spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, Heartworm/Lyme tested, and microchipped since her arrival at the shelter.
