Adopt ROGER a Brown/Chocolate Bullmastiff / Great Dane / Mixed dog in Toronto

Location:
Toronto, ON
Description:

A couple of months ago, Roger was lucky enough to find his way into Toronto Animal Services, and into the hearts of the staff who take care of him. He is a attractive, very strong, Bullmastiff who weighs in at 36kg (78 lbs).Roger was incredibly nervous when he arrived at the Shelter. With any sudden movements or noises, he would either hide or take off running, dragging his handler behind him. The shelter staff did ongoing confidence-building work while constantly giving him lots of love, and it worked wonders on him. However, as Roger became more comfortable, his sheer size and strength combined with boisterous puppy mannerisms, made him nearly uncontrollable for even our strongest staff.Roger was the perfect candidate for our Board and Train program. He spent three weeks learning manners with people and other dogs, while receiving positive reinforcement training. The board and train staff reported what we observed as well; that Roger is a highly intelligent, friendly and eager to please dog. He is very treat and toy-motivated. Upon his successful completion of the program, Roger has learned how to socialize with other calm dogs, and is greatly improving his loose-leash walking skills, (however, he still pulls quite hard on leash at times).Though Roger is enthusiastic to meet other dogs and constantly improving his socializing skills, he continues to get overly excited at times, especially with rowdy, high energy dogs. For this reason, he is not suitable for uncontrolled settings like off leash parks. Instead, small group playdates with one or 2 other calm dogs and plenty of time-outs, would be more beneficial. In addition, lots of exercise, enrichment activiites and toys, steady routine, and a ton of love, will help Roger live out his greatest potential.Roger will require an experienced dog owner who is looking for an active dog, can handle his strength, and will continue his formal positive reinforcement training. In his new home, he will continue to work on his manners while building confidence in a calm, controlled setting. Roger will do best in a quiet home and is not suitable for a home with small kids or other dogs. Contact 416-338-XXXX or drop in to our West Shelter at 146 The East Mall. All family and caretakers should meet Roger prior to adoption.For more info on our 2nd Chance Dogs program visit: https://www.toronto.ca/community-people/animals-pets/adopt-a-pet/second-chance-dogs/
