Darling Husband and I have been going to different shelters for the last few weeks. About a week ago we saw two male mastiff mix puppies and while they were adorable, we didn’t think too much of them because one was acting totally nuts and the other seemed really shy. We went back to that shelter yesterday intending on looking at a different dog and saw that one of the brothers (the crazy one) had been adopted. The shy little guy suddenly didn’t seem so shy without his crazy brother next to him and Darling Husband and I immediately fell in love! We were a little hesitant because Mastiffs are HUGE but we did some research and he’s pretty little compared to pure Mastiff puppies that are his age, and even if he’s half mastiff, we don’t mind having a large dog. We wanted to take him home then, but it was past their closing hours so they couldn’t run the transaction.
We showed up at the shelter before it opened today to make sure nobody snagged him! I was SO nervous because there was another couple that showed up before even we did and I was terrified they were there for him too! Luckily they wanted a different dog, but I was totally ready to race them for him! We haven’t decided 100% on a name, so if anyone has any suggestions let me know!! Our other dog is Hank and our cat is Ralph, so we tend to stick to human names. We’re thinking Boris because it has a special meaning to us. I had a million really cute names and Darling Husband said no to ALL of them! (Who could say no to Finn/Hugo/Fletcher?!)
Here are some pics! He fit in perfectly with our dog and cat- they were all drinking out of the communal water bowl together within 30 minutes of bringing him home!
