Puppy Adoption Policy:
To ensure proper house training and socialization, puppies will only be adopted to homes where an adult will not be away more than an hour per day, per month of age of the puppy, up to 6 months.
Puppies will be adopted out on a 'Foster to Adopt' basis. This means that if/when your application is approved to adopt, you sign a contract stating you are fostering the puppy until the time it is neutered/spayed at your expense. Giant breed puppies should not be spayed/neutered before 12 months of age. All non-giant breed puppies must be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months, unless otherwise recommended by your veterinarian. We will amend the Foster-to-Adopt contract to make the puppy legally yours, only when we receive a spay/neuter certificate from you or your veterinarian. If the puppy is not spayed/neutered as required, we will take possession of the puppy once again.
Sandy is an English Mastiff pup approximately six months old. At some point in her short life her front left leg was amputated. She was taken in as a stray, so no one knows her history, but the leg is completely healed and does not give her any issues.
A dog carries 70% of their weight on their front legs so missing a front leg puts a lot of stress on the remaining leg. Sandy is a typical puppy that wants to run, play, and follow her owner but she also tires quickly. To compensate she will lay down often, if she’s not moving she’s laying down.
Sandy can navigate stairs, but potential adopters need to consider possible mobility issues as she ages. Outside steps may require a ramp at some point and it would be best if she doesn’t have to navigate interior stairs everyday.
Likes: She loves touching. People or other dogs, it doesn’t matter, she just loves everyone.
Dislikes: Haven’t found anything
Personality: Typical puppy. She is friendly and outgoing. Playful and interested in everything
Temperament: Laidback. She’s very calm and tolerant of anything done to her.
Energy level: The extra work required to get around tires Sandy out faster than a four-legged puppy would tire. She does enjoy going outside and playing but she also enjoys a good nap on the couch.
Favorite activities: Sandy really enjoys chew bones. She also enjoys attention from her human.
Good with: Sandy is great with people, dogs, and children. she is learning how to behave around cats.
Not good with: Haven’t found anything
Housetrained: Sandy has never pooped in the house. She had a few accidents when she first arrived but after the first couple of weeks, with proper attention by the humans, she not had an accident since.
Crate trained: She goes in and sleeps well in her crate. She may occasionally bark but not for long and settles down quickly.
Challenges: Hopping on three legs is tiring and when tired Sandy can become unsteady in her footing. Carpets or secure rugs will improve her footing. Stairs should be kept to a minimum.
Any Medical issues? As she ages Sandy may need extra joint supplements. A good Veterinarian can help with her ongoing needs.
Sandy is a healthy, young pup that does not know she has a handicap. She will thrive in a home where she is loved and where her mobility needs are met. She would do well in a house with children or dogs and would be just as happy in a quiet house. Sandy is so sweet and loving, she will be a great dog for the luckily family that adopts her.Sandy is being fostered in DeGraff, Ohio.
