Sunny is a large (69 lbs) adult (1 year old) mastiff mix that was brought to us due to his past owners’ health issues.
Sunny is a lover of naps, people, and squeaky toys. If you’re lucky, sometimes you’ll get to witness all three at once. You’ll first notice him napping peacefully but once he realizes you’re there, he will come greet you with a squeaky toy. He was crate trained and housebroken in his previous home and with time, the transition will likely be accomplished quick.
Sunny has been around older kids, but not younger ones so a home with older children is preferred. Sunny has gotten along well with other dogs in his previous home but due to his tendency to resource guard, it is recommended that he be the single dog in the home.
Sunny has been diagnosed with both ehrlichiosis and heartworm disease. Ehrlichiosis is a treatable tickborne disease that, without treatment, can cause long term effects such as seizures, hemorrhaging, and heart failure. Heartworm disease is a parasitic infection caused by mosquitos that results in lung and heart disease if left untreated. Sunny’s ideal adopter is someone who understands his medial needs but will also provide plenty of snuggles and squeaky toys.
