Capo is estimated to be somewhere between 5-7 yrs old. His paperwork says 7 but he displays a slightly younger personality and energy. He is very eager to please people, smart and ready to learn, takes corrections well and responds better to affection/attention reward faster than he does food reward with the exception of the mastiff butt-plant when he doesn't want to go somewhere. He is doing very well with training and acclimations to an inside the home environment. He's an absolute love who needs someone to show him who the leader is, leep him challenged intellectually and physically. He needs the confidence and trust in his human, built from consistency and positive interaction/direction/redirection to make him his best pupper. As a slightly insecure dog, he does become overstimulated easliy. His anxiety response is to mount, hump or chew. The chewing presents more if the attention is withdrawn but he can still see the person he wants attention. Because of his humping and mouthing behaviors and easliy overstimulated, he is not recommended for any family with rambunctious play atmosphere or small children. He would be best with the only dog. He exhibits interest in playing with cats but no aggression or prey drive. He does really well with cats. We prefer Capo be an only dog, however he ok around other calm dogs. He will resource guard for attention (not toys or food), so when other dogs get attention, Capo will react. So, he needs a home that is familiar with this insecure behavior, will continue to crate him (it's his safe place and used for downtime), and will be consistent with Capo. Like most dogs, Capo wants your direction, he strives to make his person happy and is a very smart boy. He can be mouthy when he wants affection or play time with you. While he is gently about being mouthy, we are working on redirecting this behavior and would like a family that would continue to do the same for him. He is up to date on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. In the few weeks Capo has been with his foster, he has been learning, adjusting, and seeking a human bond. We hope to find him the perfect family he can begin to build this bond with. He is a very good boy who needs his fur-ever family with a calmer home to help him relax, continue to build confidence, and will take him on walks.

Cercius is a sweet 7 year old lady that thinks she is a lap dog as most Danes do. She knows commands as sit, lay down and shake with either paw for a treat. She loves to play tug of war and she will throw her paws at you while playing. She is housebroken. She pulls hard on a leash and does not like the gentle leader style leash. She has a bone she carries around like a security blanket and will guard it with a growl. You can take away with nothing more than a growl. She sleeps on her dog bed and does fine with baths. She is a guard dog and will protect her home with barking/growling. Overall she is a super sweet gal that loves car rides, treats and her special bone. Cercius needs to be the only dog and no small children as they scare her.

Giovanna is between 3-5yrs old Cane Corso and is appx 90lbs. She is currently being fostered with our trainer and learning some manners about being a well-rounded family member. Jojo is learning very quickly and getting along well with the other dogs in the foster home. She is showing some resource guarding with other dogs and does show some with people for high value items (meaty bones, special treats, etc). The trainer is working with her on this. Due to complications from her spay surgery, her training was delayed, but she is right back on track with training. Jojo must go to a family who has experience with the corso breed or other similar breeds with guarding tendencies. Giovanna "Jojo" is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. She also has had gastropexy (tacking the stomach) done.

Leveaux AKA Monkey is 8 year old female Boerboel (South African Mastiff). She is such a sweet hunk of love that just wants to be where you are. Her tongue is almost always poking out a little bit, especially when she sleeps and it is adorable just like her. She is working on her house training, spayed, has yet to go all the way up stairs but if fine getting in and out of a car. Great with kids and very gentle in general though a little clumsy. Monkey would do best in a home where she would be the only dog.
