Caesar is a magnificent 4-5 year old brindle male Mastiff, owner-surrendered to an
excellent small shelter in TN with no reason given but no negatives reported. He was
temperament tested and evaluated by one of our ABARS colleagues who described him as “an
exceptionally sweet, gentle boy.”
He travelled happily in the backseat of Lynn Moore’s car from TN to NC and has been terrific at
the boarding facility where our more northern dogs often arrive first. The staff reports that he is
indeed is exceptionally sweet and gentle, confident meeting strangers, cooperative at the vet
office, open and friendly with everyone.
He seems very fond of children and very careful and gentle around the couple he has met.
He has had very little training of any kind, and will pull on the leash if he’s in a hurry to get
somewhere, a dog who will require a foster or adopter with good upper body strength in the
beginning. He has easily learned sit, down and “shake” from the facility staff but still regards
those words simply as “suggestions” to consider.
