TaJack is the quintessential happy boy. If you ask him he’s never had a bad day! He was found as a stray by a Good Samaritan in AL familiar with English Mastiﬀs who contacted us, looking for a rescue. She described him as maybe 3-4, very friendly and easy-going so we found an AL short term foster and took him in. He was in good health, although a little underweight, HW negative with no skin issues or any signs of having been out on his own.
Our foster immediately conﬁrmed the rescuer’s good report and put him up for about two weeks until we could move him to South Carolina. She is a groomer and took him to her shop in the ﬁrst few days where he had a terriﬁc time, happy to meet everyone. people and dogs, and untroubled by a much-needed bath in the big tub. He was so friendly with other dogs that at home she turned him out with her own two dogs and he was delighted to play and hang out with them outside and in.
Once in South Carolina the report from the new foster was the same—he’s a happy, aﬀectionate. relaxed guy, easily adjusting to new situations everywhere he goes—to the vet, in the car, out on the town for walks When he comes in the house her mastiﬀs bark at him but he pays no attention to them. We don’t know if he has lived with children but he met a group of friendly kids with his ﬁrst foster and appeared to think they were pretty ﬁne to hang out with too.
He’s not rambunctious, although he doesn’t seem to have had much training and will pull on a leash. He should be pretty easy for anyone with training experience or access to a good trainer because of his compliant temperament and the fact that he is very attentive to people and what they like. He’s a soft, sweet dog who loves to cuddle.
