More about me

Male (Extra-large). Bull Mastif Blend. Adult - DOB: July 2013.

Shelter: DogtownSA - Hennops River (Gauteng)
Tel: 0760441979

When I was a wee boy (as wee as a boy like me can be), I was taught that there is not much of a difference between fighting and playing. Actually, I thought I was playing but then later found out my hooman wanted to make me aggressive so that I would protect him.   If he would have just told me that was what it was about, I would have told him that I would protect him anyway. He did not need to invent these games where I’d get beaten.

Some good folks saw what my hooman was doing to me and they convinced him to let me go to another home. By then I was not a wee boy anymore and I did not quite understand how strong I was.

I was brought to Dogtown so that I can learn the difference between play and fight, and that I would never have to resort to fighting again. Luckily, I do not have a mean bone in my body, all I needed was for understanding people to take the time to help me.

My carer says I’m still just a big puppy, probably because I love to lie down on her lap so that my ears can be rubbed. I usually fall asleep, snore and drool on her, every now and then I hear ‘Ugh gross Neno’ but I don’t care. It’s just so nice to be massaged and to not have a care in the world other than when I get my next walk, chew or yummy meal.

I’m looking forward to finding out how it feels to be in my own home with my own family who loves me for who I am. In the mean time, if you can not adopt me please consider sponsoring me so that those yummy chews can keep coming.
