Griffy - English Mastiff - SENIOR

Share this

Hi, I'm Griffy! I'm a 6.5-year-old English Mastiff, and I was surrendered to rescue simply because I was "too big." I don't know how to be anything other than who I am though, so I'm not going to apologize for my size!  For an English Mastiff, I am pretty average sized. I'm a big, strong boy and may come across as intimidating upon first meeting a stranger, but I am a big softie on the inside. I really adore children, I love sleeping on my dog bed, the couch, your lap. I'm house trained, and I'm trustworthy with free roam but I need to be watched for the occasional marking behavior when stressed. I know sit, wait, come, down and I'm a really lovable dude. I don't care for people reaching for my head, but once I get to know a human I do fine with them. I love to walk and do well on a leash but when distracted or excited I am powerful so we use a freedom harness.  I'm not trustworthy with other animals although my foster family is working on socialization. If you think you can handle a big, lovable guy like me, begin the application process today!
