Sometimes, a Mastiff comes to us and they are just too far gone to help.  Fortunately, like with Baby Girl, we get them just in time.  Baby Girl was found as a stray in a very emaciated state.  Every bone was visible on this sweet girl's body.  It was  also quite evident she had numerous amounts of litters in her life.   Not knowing anything about her, she could possibly be between 3-5 yrs old.   Baby Girl was very shy at first when she came into the shelter but finally warmed up.   When she got to her foster home she found out really fast that it's pretty awesome to get meals, cookies and a soft comfy places to lay.  Baby Girl is crate trained and potty trained.  Though she does great with chickens it is unknown how she would be with cats and children.  She currently resides with two male dogs.  She can be bossy at times so she would do best with a laid back dog or as an only dog.  Sadly, Baby Girl does not know what toys are and does not think romping with other dogs is that super either.  She does have one thing she just absolutely love to do, chasing and prancing after hose water when her foster mom is trying to water plants.  It's so much fun and she end up soaking wet.  If you are looking for a girl that is calm and just wants to snuggle and follow you around in the yard,  this your girl.  Baby Girl does have a bit of trouble with her left rear leg.  No worries because that is being checked out when I get fixed.  I am more on the petite side for a mastiff currently weighing in at about 115,  which is better than the 92 I came in at!  If you are interested in helping with Baby Girl's recovery or with any of the other Mastiffs that need help, please click on our donate page!
