Mastiff - Female
Age: 18 months
House Trained: Yes
Please welcome Miss Clara! She is a female Mastiff mix approximately 18 months old that is recovering nicely from her neglect and abuse. She was so emaciated upon entering rescue the top of her head was sunken in. These photos are recent and you can see she is recovering nicely and will be ready for her forever home soon. Don't let her appearance fool you, she has two speeds full on play mode and snuggle/sleep mode. She loves to run and play with the other dogs in rescue, her play style is rough and tumble, so she would need to go to a home with dogs that will accept that. She is fast, oh so fast and will need a fenced yard to run and play in. She is a happy girl and seems to love people and dogs equally, although she is not above putting another dog in their place if necessary. She is crate trained, housebroken and up to date on vaccines. She has cleared the Coccidia and is heartworm negative. She will be spayed shortly.
Miss Clara is a young Mastiff, possibly English, found as a stray, so emaciated that the muscle on her head has been eaten away. The shelter had been reaching out to rescues, the details are not important, but we stepped up to pull her if we could get transport help. Hearts 'n Homes assisted with securing Miss Clara and transporting her half way. A HUGE thank you to them, this could not have been possible without their assistance. Miss Clara was positive for Coccidia and treated, she has done beautifully during rehabilitation with small meals around the clock, exercise and rest.
Hi Future Parent!
Well Hello Everyone! My name is Clara and I'm sooooooo happy to meet you! Please excuse my current appearance, I'm still recovering from being really, really sick. I thought I was going to die being out in the world on my own. I was very afraid when the humans picked me up and took me to some place called a shelter, but I was so weak there wasn't much fight left in me. The shelter was very noisy, but the humans there took very good care of me, gave me medicine, a safe place to sleep and food. Once I started to feel better and became stable (whatever that means) some very sweet ladies picked me up from the shelter and drove me to some other nice ladies, who put me in the car and drove some more and those ladies met another nice lady who put me in her car and drove some more!!!! It was a very long trip but when we finally stopped the lady I now know as my foster mom took me into a big yard with lots of other dogs to play with and a comfy den for me to sleep in. She made me such yummy food - she calls it the "healing soup" over kibble mixed with these super yummy things she calls sweet potatoes. I get this several times a day, (I feel like royalty now) mom says it will help me continue to heal and get to a healthy weight. It's nice here but I'd really like to have my own humans to love and know they will never leave me all alone in the world again. Mom says she and her friends have started to look for my furever home - I can't wait to meet and love my new family.
