Nessie (CP) - Adoption Pending

Age:  4 years
Gender:  Female
Breed:  Mastiff Mix
Size:  70 lbs
Dog Friendly:  Yes
Cat Friendly:  Yes
Kid Friendly:  Yes


Nessie's family fell upon really hard times and now we're trying to rehome her to the perfect place. She has lived with cats, dogs and kids and did well with them after an adjustment period. She's still about 10 lbs underweight and should probably weigh around 75-80 lbs. Nessie is worried about the world and what it brings. This behavior should not be babied and we're looking for a home that will provide her a calm, consistent and happy environment. Nessie loves being outside in non crowded areas. Therefore we recommend a place with a back yard and/or some land. We do not recommend her for an apartment or condo building.

In the past she has broken out of crates and knows how to open doors. The good thing is that she is fine outside her crate and will just go to the front door if she's outside to look for her human.

Nessie is housebroken and has no resource guarding and loves her human. Probably her favorite thing to do is play with her big rope or chew on a bone. She's a gentle giant who needs to know the world is a good place to live.
