Adopt a English Mastiff

English Mastiff Dog

Bernie the Dog needs a home

Bernie is a fun loving sweet English Mastiff pup.  Located in Lewis Center, OH.  She is a fluffy so has a bit more coat maintenance than smooth coats require.  She is not spayed, and will be adopted on a Foster-to-Adopt contract, requiring the adopter to have her spayed at an age recommended by your veterinarian, within reason.  She will be offically adopted when you provde a spay certificate.  Before that time, you are fostering her and are responsible to ensure she is not bred. This is our policy with giant breeds as more information has become available the past few years.

Puppy Adoption Policy:

To ensure proper house training and socialization, puppies will only be adopted to homes where an adult will not be away more than an hour per day, per month of age of the puppy, up to 6 months.

Puppies will be adopted out on a 'foster to adopt' basis. This means that if/when your application is approved, you sign a contract stating you are fostering the puppy until the time it is neutered/spayed at your expense. Once this is done, and you have shown us proof of spay/neuter, we will amend the foster-to-adopt contract to make the puppy legally yours. If you haven't had your puppy altered by the age of 6 months (later for giant breed dogs), we will take possession of the puppy once again.

Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our funds are used for rescuing the dogs.

Our rescue policy requires the following:

  • Adopters must have their primary residence in one of the following states: Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, and parts of North Carolina.

  • Applications for giant breed dogs must be submitted by the property owner.

  • Homes with children under 6 years of age will not be approved for adoption.

  • Homes with children should have a fenced yard.

  • Pets currently in the applicant's home must have a history of appropriate veterinary care. Veterinary records will be checked.

  • All references must be checked before any visitation of the dog is permitted at the foster home.

  • All family members must be present during the home visit to the applicant's home.

  • Any dog(s) in the applicant's home must have an introductory meeting with the rescue dog being considered, before any adoption can be completed.
