No Small Kids
Name: Pistol
ID: 45541272
Breed: English Mastiff / Mix
Gender: Spayed Female
Age: 9 years 2 months
Size: X-Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
About Me: My name is Pistol and I am a shy and gentle giant. I came to the SPCA very scared and nervous, but I am learning how to trust people and I'm ready to go home with you! I am interested in snuggling up to people now, especially if you bring treats. I'm also a a huge fan of sun bathing!

Foster Reason: I am undergoing heartworm treatment, so I will need a nice calm home while I am on exercise restriction! This means no stairs and short leash walks only!

Foster length: Approximately until the beginning of February when I should be done with heartworm treatment!

Foster Home: My ideal home would be calm and relaxing. I cannot go up and down stairs, so ground floor or elevator access is required! I'm doing well with learning how to walk on a leash, but I still get a bit overwhelmed sometimes. Because of this, I need a home with a securely fenced in yard, though a very low traffic apartment might be okay if there is a designated walk area for me. Due to my history of fearful behavior, I need a home without young children. I will need to meet anyone in the home 12 and up so I can be sure I'll be comfortable with my housemates. I think that some dogs are pretty okay- I just need to meet them before I go home with you to ensure a proper match!

Special Note: While I am not yet available for adoption, I am available for foster-to-adopt!
