Mayo is a neutered 3-year-old American Bulldog mix that is looking for his forever home! This 85-pound pup has lots of energy and love to give. His head is, in fact, at countertop height. Mayo would do great in a home with a fenced-in yard as he likes lounging outside. He is house-trained and crate-trained.
Mayo is all about balance - well not physically - he doesn't realize how large he is, especially around little kids. But he enjoys a 50/50 ratio of playtime and naptime. Despite the size of his smile, Mayo takes care not to destroy his stuffed toys. Mayo loves belly rubs and will respect your personal space when relaxing together. You can best win Mayo over with treats and car rides. He even likes to sleep in on the weekends!
Mayo does well with other dogs that he's properly introduced. He's working hard on his manners and would do best in a home that can continue his training to help him be the best pup he can be. We do recommend doing some strength workouts to keep up with him. He's a bit of a show-off with his muscles.
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once Ruff Start Rescue receives your application, a placement coordinator will contact you as soon as possible. All Ruff Start dogs and cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines, microchipped, dewormed, and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm prevention (dogs) as well as heartworm tested (dogs).
