Winston is a very large 18 month old brindle mastiff recently surrendered because his intense prey drive made him unsuitable for a peaceful life on a farm with a population of lively small animals.
He has been beautifully raised by a family experienced with giant breed dogs. He has been well trained and socialized but at 18 months he is still an adolescent with his own ideas from time to time of what would be an interesting activity. He will require mastiff experienced adopters skilled at establishing rules and boundaries with patience and consistency. He has lived happily with large dogs and children older than toddlers but would not be a good choice for a household with small children because of his youth and size.
He is a sweet and obliging guy about whom we will be providing more information as we have it.
