Several months ago on the way out of Costco I encountered this beautiful dog. Of course I stopped and had to met the her. The dog was so sweet and shy I didn't want to crowed her space. I moved my walker out of her sight because most dogs don't know what to except. The man gave me some of her favorite dog treats. She was gentle and had a very peaceful way about her. Of course I fall a little in love with most dogs I meet. Her sad story is that she was left in the pound when she was young with no information This man is my hero because he adopted this special needs dog.She is an English Mastiff, these dog cost a good amount of money to feed and care for. This breed HAS to be well socialize to have a change for a happy life. Their are very socialized when treated well but without this background sad endings come too often.
Mastiff are an ancient noble breed that dates back to the Roman Empire. The were used as war dogs.
When Mastiffs are raised well, they are great family dog who will love and protect their children and their homes. They are truly gentle giants. I love this breed.
