Dog to a good home

We are trying to find a good home for this female Mastiff dog. Someone foreclosed on their house and lefther in the backyard. She has been very good with our kids (10, 8, and 4)the last couple of days we have had her. We think she was an inside dog, but I am sure can be trained to be an outside dog. She is very mild mannered and a sweet dog. She likes to be around people and is very playful. We would love to keep her because she is such a good dog but we already have 2 large male dogs.
Please call me if you would like to come see her or if you have any questions

Donate to Baby Jersey

Our good friends lost their sweet Jersey girl on Monday. She was 6 weeks old. She was born with no pulmonary valve and a hole in her heart. She had open heart surgery at 1 week old but failed kidneys is what took her. One can only imagine the pain of losing a child and then stressing about the financial burden as well. If anyone feels inclined to help, a paypal account has been set up in Jerseys name for donations. You can follow this link below or contact me directly. Thank you so much, I know they really appreciate it.

You can read all about Jerseys life on their blog at Be sure to have tissues handy. Its a tear jerker!
