Meet Halle! This sweet girl came in with Lorelai, they were transferred from our friends at the Dallas SPCA. Halle had a terrible skin infection from having so many fleas on her body. She was treated for that and got medicated baths which really helped. It was so bad that it would bleed in some areas. Poor baby! She also had a low thyroid which made her skin issues worse. She started daily meds which are thankfully inexpensive! We also have her on allergy medication called Apoquel during the allergy season. It's really kept her seasonal allergies from causing re-occuring skin infections. The rest of the year she would be OK on just Benedryl. 

Halle also has a genetic condition called entropion. This is where the dog's eyelid roll inward, providing constant irritiation to the eye. She also has a condition called microphthalmia, where her eyes are smaller than normal size, which made the entropion worse. She's had 3 corrective surgeries and doing so much better! Halle is prone to getting eye infections and so she gets drops about 2-3 times a week and that seems to help prevent anything major. She also had some kind of injury to her hind leg at some point, it looks a little "off" so we had Xrays done. The vet said it was some kind of old injury however it won't require any kind of surgery and it doesn't seem to bother her so we're thankful for that. She runs and plays and jumps with the best of them!

Halle has a very comical personality. She is a silly girl who likes to "talk" and keeps her foster parents laughing. She loves to have bones to chew on. 

Halle has mixed reviews with other dogs, and she did have a naughty moment and jumped up on another Mastiff when all of the dogs were really excited meeting a visitor and they got into a scuffle. Like many of our Mastiffs who were mommas before coming to us, when they spend their lives making puppies they tend to be dominant and very bossy with other dogs as that's all they've known. She's been fostered with some submissive dogs and done OK with them but she can not be left unsupervised with other dogs. She has no "off" button when playing and she plays rough and doesn't respond when the other dog has had enough and sometimes her foster parents have to step in and tell her to give it a rest. Honestly the best way to describe is that if she lives with another dog, she will need to be micromanaged. 

Halle is definitely a product of her environment - when things are calm she is very relaxed but when things get loud and excited, so does she! And it makes it hard to be well behaved when she gets so over-stimulated. For example when visitors come to the home she tries to paw at them and jump for attention and mouth their hands. Things she never does when it's just her and her foster family. She just can't help herself and will definitely be a work in progress for any home with frequent visitors. So a quieter home would probably be best for her. 

She does like to chase cats so we don't recommend her for a home with kitties. Since we don't have a history of her with children, a home with kids 11 and up would be best. She likes to patrol her back yard and bark any dogs or people that are too close to her fence. If you need a dog to alert you to any burglars, this is your girl! She loves being outside and laying in the sun so if you are a family who spends a lot of time outdoors, she would be a good match for you.

Halle has the personality of more of a "teenage" Mastiff and requires a home who will continue working on her basic training and set firm boundaries for her. She's a dog who was failed by her former owner in that they did zero training with her. So while her demeanor is good she just has very few manners. We've been working with her but she is a stubborn girl and so her adopters will need to be willing to continue the training we've started. She loves treats so that helps. 

Halle is being fostered in Shawnee, OK.
