LARAMY IS LOCATED IN DEGRAFF, OH.

Jack! Jackimo! Bubba! Goober! Laremy! Whatever you call this handsome boy doesn’t matter; his tail will be a-wagging. It is always wagging.

He came in with a broken femur, severely underweight, heartworm positive.  He underwent an extensive surgery and painful heartworm treatment but is now fully healed with an awesome scar to show for it.   

LIKES: Laremy absolutely loves hugs and neck scratches. I mean he LOVES having his neck scratched. His eyes go closed and his whole body goes all soft. His hugs are wonderful, too. He’ll lean into you for the bestest hug, and you just know he’ll stay there as long as you’ll let him.

DISLIKES: Cold and snow. Laremy came from Georgia and he’s a southern gentleman to be sure. I’ve seen skidding halts from dogs when it’s raining out, but his was epic. The look on his face made me laugh out loud. He did go out and will go out easily, but he does his business as quickly as possible then back inside he goes. Not a bad thing on a cold, wet morning in Ohio.
Also, his name. We all know the Mastiff side-eye, but it was a pure stink-eye the first time he was called Laremy. He likes Jack.

PERSONALITY: Have you ever met a 100-pound wiggle butt, love bug? That’s Laremy. He is just happy. Happy to be talked to, happy to get fed, happy to go for a walk, happy to see the Vet, happy to stand still when told to, happy to sleep in his kennel. His tail is always wagging.

TEMPERAMENT: Laremy is multifaceted. He’s energetic and calm. He doesn’t understand personal space with humans and dogs and can be pushy but he’s also eager to please and learns fast. He loves his zoomies and wants to run but will stop and walk when told to. He gets excited in new situations or when meeting people.

ENERGY LEVEL: Low to mid energy. He loves to run and play in short bursts, but sleeping on a soft bed? He can do that for hours.

GOOD WITH DOGS, CATS, KID (over 6)? Laremy has met indoor and outdoor cats and is fine with both. He will snuffle them, might chase if they run but has never shown any ill intent. He has also met chickens and horses. He’s interested in the chickens but does not go after them. The horses? Well, those are some big, weird dogs and best left alone, so he watches from a distance.  Laremy has not met kids while he’s been with MTM Rescue, but he loves people so with proper introductions and supervision, he should be fine with them. That being said, he has no situational awareness, no understanding of his size and power and gets excited easily so bumps and bruises will happen. 

Laremy is being fostered in a house with multiple dogs. He is fine with all dogs that he has met, regardless of the size. He loves to play and will gladly answer a play bow invitation. However, Laremy has zero social skills which many dogs don’t like. Slow, controlled introductions are always the best way for dogs to meet.

NOT GOOD WITH: For a dog that doesn't respect personal space he sure demands his own!  

HOUSETRAINED? Yes! He tried to mark when he first got here, but that was easily stopped. His kennel is always clean and dry.

CRATE TRAINED? Yes. Laremy is in a 6’ x 6’ kennel, not a crate. He has an orthopedic mattress, blankets, and toys. He has not destroyed anything and is quiet and calm.

REQUIRES A FENCED YARD (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? This would depend on the location and how committed the adopter is to training Laremy. He is learning to walk on a leash and will potty while leashed, so a fence is not required if adopter is able to leash walk to potty multiple times a day.

WALKS ON A LEASH? He is learning. He is also very strong so if he really wants to see or sniff somewhere, he will. He is working every day and improves with every walk.

CHALLENGES: Laremy needs to learn to curb his enthusiasm. He’s so happy and excited by every new thing, experience or person that he just wants more. More attention, more in your lap, more, more, more. With his lack of social skills and training combined with his size and strength he can be a bit much at times. He will need patience and consistent input to learn what is and isn’t acceptable.  Luckily, he is very eager to learn and learns quickly.

ANY MEDICAL ISSUES? His broken leg has been reset and the opening has healed. Heartworm treatment started the end of November and will take up to six months to complete. He is up to date on vaccines and flea/tick/heartworm preventative and is neutered.

WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST KIND OF HOME? Laremy would do well as an only dog or one of a pack. He is a wonderful dog that just wants to be loved and loved on. Do you work from home? He’ll keep you company. Gone all day for work? No worries, he’ll snooze until you get home. Love jogging? Great! He’ll see you when you get back ‘cause Mastiffs don’t jog. ;)
