Picante - Neapolitan Mastiff (new to rescue - under evaluation)

Share this

My name is Picante, and you'd better get your application in and ask about me, because I have a feeling this big wrinkly dog will be one "hot" item! I'm a 2-year-old, black brindle, male Neapolitan Mastiff. But let's talk about my noggin. And my wrinkles. Huge and lovable - I'm quite a conversation piece, and I know it! Like I say… one hot dude. Keep in mind that I am a Neo Mastiff, and we have certain breed traits and such. So someone who understands and can work with me would be best. I'm house-trained, crate-trained, and working on my leash training. Basically, I'm a giant puppy just starting to learn some commands. When you put me in my crate, I will bark at first, but then I'll calm down. I'll do some puppy chewing when I'm bored, and I especially love shoes. So please put the shoes away unless you want some of my handiwork (or should I say jaw-work?) on them. I don't dig and I love ropes and stuffed toys. I'm okay with large dogs, but I do need to be fed separately. I am not good with small dogs or cats, so those will have to be off-limits for me. The same with small children - I'm okay with larger kids like teenagers, but I'm too much dog for the littler ones. You may have noticed that I have eyelid entropion… and sometimes I bump into things because of it. Basically a big wrinkly-eyed dog problem. I have mild hip displaysia, but I do get around just fine. Bottom line - I'm a big, big, wrinkly, playful pup who doesn't really know how large I am… and I'm looking for a home that understands Neo Mastiffs and our tendencies. So if you're the right fit, please ask about one Mr. Picante and my wrinkles today!
