Well kninda hit the wall yesterday and most likely worst day for someone to give me the adopt don't shop speech. Took Mouse to Petsmart not knowing there having there big adoption weekend. For the average person getting there first dog, hey adopting is a great way as long as you do research. Even then a person need to look at energy and needs, along with there ability to do certain things with the type they get. Well was aproached by a group of people that asked me where I got my dog he was lovely in how he acted and he looked great. Said he was what is known as a English mastiff but actually it was just Mastiff and I got him from a breeder outside Pittsburgh. You would have thought I killed someone, as he was not a adpoted dog. Being me I told them he was breed for a certain temper and job, and getting a dog fom a rescue or the dog pound did not give me the best hope of getting what I wanted in my dog. Next was preached to as to dogs dieing and the many great things about rescueing a dog. Sorry but Mouse has done ton for the wife and guards her like no other dog I have had, granted I have never been presented with the current matters. Most likely what made matters worse is that he rescued her again Saturday when she lost her balance going to the restroom and fell into the tub. He knocked open the door and she used him grabbing his fur to get out the tub. She's black and blue on her right side but she fell around 1:30pm and i did not get home till 6:30pm if not for him she would have been there for 5 hours. With the past things he has done , I'll always be a person who looks for the Mastiff I want with the correct temper and breeding. Guess a lot of this is me just venting on the people who are so closed minded in the rescue community.
