Meet Lady! Her name fits her well - she is very sweet and a typical velcro mastiff. She came to us from a shelter where she was surrendered by her owner when they had a baby and decided they didn't have time for her anymore.
Lady loves getting loved on and will nudge you with her nose to let you know she wants more! She can be timid at first and needs time to warm up to people and other animals. At first she was indifferent to the other Mastiff in her foster home but she now will play a bit. She can be rough with her play however and her new owners will need to remove toys from play time as she gets too territorial over them and won't share. This is only when the dogs are playing, otherwise they have toys strewn about and there is never an issue with sharing in that circumstance. She just is more of rough player.
Lady will go after the squirrels and rabbits in the yard so she is not recommended for a home with cats. She does smile and and is super wiggly when she gets excited but overall is well behaved. She would be fine as a single dog and also fine with other large dog(s). Lady definitely is an inside gal and isn’t one to like to be outside, even when it’s nicer out.
Lady is heartworm negative and currently seems to have some allergy issues that we're sorting out. She came in with very red and raw front feet, which healed up with treatment - but with a recent food change, she started chewing on one of her feet again. We've gone back to the original food and adding an over the counter antihistamine, hoping that resolves the issue. It may be that she has some sensitivities and so just needs to stay on the food that works best for her body. We should know more about that soon!
Since we don't know how Lady is with small kids, an adult only home or a home with older kids 12+ would be best.
Lady is being fostered in Tulsa, OK.
