Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted February 27, 2013
At the rescue, we refer to Bruno as our mascot! He frequents our kissing booth at fundraising events:)
Mastiffs tend to be very friendly toward those they are accustomed. They are great dogs for families and can be very protective watchdogs. They are VERY LARGE. Bruno is around 170 lbs. They are low energy, so they typically do well with or without a fenced yard. You will need to keep in mind that BIG dogs mean a BIG food budget.
With any large breed dog, training is extremely important! Controlling a 15 lb unruly dog is easy compared to a 150 lb unruly dog!
