Brooklyn the Goofy Mastiff Mix – FOSTERED
9/2017: Fostered in NJ!
7/2017: Looking for a foster home or adopter. 8 years old, 80 lbs. Mastiff Mix. Good with dogs and kids.
Brooklyn is a big boned 75 lb 7-8 year old American Staffordshire Terrier / Mastiff mix who is well mannered, laid back, amazing boy. He was previously listed on our site in 2014, but is sadly losing his home due to no fault of his own and is back “on the market.”
His outgoing loving personality will increase your heart size at least 3 fold. Brooklyn is a master at giving you the puppy eyes and redefines the art with his uniquely crackled spider web amber eyes! He also likes to stay classy and crosses his paws when he lays down.
Brooklyn has previously lived with animals but prefers to be the only animal in the home. However, a home with other animals is an option for him.
The police found Brooklyn running in the streets in Canarsie, took him in, and called Twenty Paws. When they found him I had a large prong collar digging into his skin and has left a bald spot in its place. Brooklyn’s allergies were neglected and required treatment for a skin infection, which was caused another bald spot on his back. Brooklyn is now completely healthy and ready to be the king of the castle. He is a complete love bug and walks well with a gentle leader leash.
Although he LOVES people and kids, an adult home or one with older children would be best for him- due to his large size and goofy/clumsy behavior. A great listener, Brooklyn knows his basic commands and eager to learn more. Brooklyn currently lives with a military family and the moving around is very stressful for him and he is looking for a more stable environment.
Brooklyn will be at your feet all day trying to please you. Brooklyn is crate trained and will sleep quietly in his crate all night but would prefer to keep your toes warm in the bed. He is completely house trained as well. Brooklyn is ready to go home to a dog bed (or your bed) and safe place to roam. With a lot of love to give, Brooklyn eagerly awaits to be all your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
