Solomon is a very large (180 pound) 16 month old fawn mastiff with very little experience in theworld. He is sweet, naive in some instances, from lack of appropriate information about the world.
He is a laid-back optimist by nature, preferring hanging out to running races. He can be cautious about meeting strangers, but very friendly once acquainted, with lots of kisses and
eye contact. He is polite on a leash and knows a few commands, cooperative by nature but sometimes unclear about what is being wanted of him and requiring patient communication. He needs an experienced mastiff owner who can provide him with quiet, consistent leadership in the larger world.
He was with a mastiff trainer for a couple months after entering rescue and has now been moved to a situation where he is being introduced to new experiences—vetting, being asked for specific behaviors, being introduced to other dogs, etc. He is adapting splendidly. More information is coming soon!
