More about me
Male (Extra-large). Bull Mastif Blend. Adult - DOB: July 2013.
Shelter: DogtownSA - Hennops River (Gauteng)
Well howdy doo folks. I am Neno. I am one big, soft hearted puppy and truth be told, I have no idea how big and strong I am, the humans at Dogtown say that I remind them o the Iron Giant My life before Dogtown consisted of confinement to the back garden where my sole purpose was to scare intruders away The person who was supposed to care for me did all kinds of things to try and make me angry so that I can be a protector but he really just scared me and I am very happy to be away from that environment now. That is no life for any dog, let alone a big softy like me. I just want to hear people say “there’s a good boy” but people tend to be scared of me for some reason.
I love kisses and cuddles and I will quite easily fall asleep on your lap while you are giving me cuddles. I am social with dogs my size. I do like smaller dogs but I really want to play and then sometimes I end up falling on top of them which is not great, so a playmate my own size is what is best for me I think
I am an affectionate boy and I really just want to be close to my people. I am not the kind of guy who can be left alone for hours on end, I don’t need to be kept busy but I like being where my family is. Sometimes I like to invent my own games, like playing hide and seek with random “stuff” in my garden. My favourite toys are durable balls and tyre-toys.
Because of the way I was raised, to be a big scary dog (which I really am not) – I am not too fond of men because the men in my life have been very mean. I prefer ladies as they tend to me soft hearted, like me Once I love you as my family, I love you forever but because I am not so fond of men, I am not the kind of guy who will like having strangers come and go.
I looooove food and I am a very chilled guy. I am not a busy body and most stuff doesnt phase me. I really enjoy going out on walks and walk really nicely on lead, but I am a big guy so my forever human would need to be strong.
Please come meet me, I am big boy with a small heart just waiting to be called “a good boy”.
