Meet Love Bug! Love Bug is a very sweet and affectionate mastiff mix. To be precise, LB's DNA test revealed that she's 75% Boerboel, 12.5% standard Bulldog and 12.5% Bullmastiff!
Bug has a super cute tail nubbin and her whole body wiggles when she's happy, which is nearly all of the time! She’s looking for a family who would love to take her on a hike or out for a swim (there’s nothing cuter than a Love Bug splashing about, rolling in the sand and surf!) Love Bug adores other dogs, but isn't always great at taking their cues when they're done playing, so she would do best with another playful dog and a dog-savvy adopter who can help her learn how to play appropriately.
This darling girl is strong, and definitely needs some basic manners and leash training. She is also a typical mastiff and would do best with a very experienced adopter who's familiar with guardian breeds as she can be fear reactive to strangers (especially men) and exhibits some guarding behaviors. Bug is muzzle trained for everyone's safety and would love an adopter who will continue to work with her to teach her that strangers aren't as scary as she thinks, and who will manage introductions very safely. Bug is an eager student and excited to learn! If you give her your heart, she promises to be a loyal companion for years to come.
Bug needs a home with no young children, and she is not a good fit for a family with cats. Ask us about Love Bug today!
