Breed: Neapolitan Mastiff
Current Location: West Virginia
Adoption Date: November 3, 2018
Adopted by: Shannon White-Metz
We’re not gonna lie, this adoption was a tough one for all of us to say goodbye. Truth loves all of us so very much and knowing that her first adoption didn’t work out we were extra worried for our big girl.
Her new mom Shannon White-Metz flew in from West Virginia to meet Truth and will be making the long trip home with her. Shannon recently lost her 14 year old Pomeranian to congestive heart failure and her 7 year old Frenchie named Rabbit is very lonely without his friend. Rabbit was rescued from a backyard breeder after being kept in a wire hutch and when Shannon got her she was not house trained and had frequent accidents in the house. Shannon said no worries about that because I decided at that point just to pull up all the carpet and be done with that. Shannon works from home 2 to 3 days a week and when she is not there she has two adult children that can stop in and help care for Truth and Rabbit.
We felt very comfortable that Truth would do well in this home and have all the patience in the world with this big girl to adapt in her home. Truth was a little worried about saying goodbye to us again but we tried to just be very casual about it and not do a lot of hugging and kissing and instead just let her go on with her new mama.
Truth will forever be known as Squishy and how great is that, after all it fits her perfectly because they don’t get any squishier than this big sweet girl.
We hope to see lots of you on the Happy Tails page where we can follow you for the rest of your life, big girl.
We wish you the happiest of happy!
This sweet girl was a backyard breeder surrender we were able to secure from south Texas. The conditions she was living in were appalling and neglected. She has ear and eye infections have been cleared up as have her skin infection. She has been completely vetted and is ready to be adopted.
She is an incredibly affectionate girl who wants nothing more than to climb in your lap, you just never mind how big she is. She’s three years old and just as silly and sweet as can be.
Here’s what I’m looking for in a home. First and foremost, she needs to live with other dogs, she needs to live with a family who has dogs that are balanced and can show her by example. She is a little nervous with new people and and will pee a little bit when you scare her. She did that with us the first few days we had her but never again after that. She needs someone to have patience and understanding and confidence to let her know that she is safe and if she pees by mistake, then it’s okay and ignore it and move on.
We have had this girl with us for weeks and weeks and Julie had her at the temp sanctuary as well.
She is a great dog and a great big old pile of squishy lovely goo who just needs lots of love and affection.
