Cutest Half Blind Mastiff EverThis is a featured page

Puppy loves ice...

Name: Puppy

Picture: Add some pictures of your dog using the "Add Image" icon on the EasyEdit toolbar (Add Image icon)

Breed: Old English Mastiff

Born: Puppy was supposedly born in Tennesee to a family breeder -- he was actually born we don't know where and bred by evil puppy mill breeder Louis Vogel/Vagel and Running Bear Mastiffs. We purchased him online 8 years ago from now defunct mastiff.com when he was 6 weeks (supposedly) old. Our biggest mistake? Not typing in "breeders name + lawsuit". Puppy has many genetic defects including PRA, complete retinal detachment in one eye (blind in that eye) skin allergies, cataracts in his good eye, a heart murmer, thyroid problem, and a cervical disk displacement (probably size and age, not breeding). Most of these problems were discovered between 5 months and 1 year old. No, we did not give the dog we love and cherish back to the evil Louis Vogel for a replacement and will continue to care for his goofy self forever.

About his owners: We are a couple who have been dating for 14 years and are very proud of our "only child". We travel a lot, own our own business and dote on our dog.

Why Puppy: We love the breed, sweetest, cutest, friendliest dog we've ever had and the fact that his size scares the hell out of people is a bonus! Obviously, we like dogs of the giant breed category.

What Puppy likes: Circle dance at dinner time -- he's blind in his left eye so he always circles right (we have to put a stop to the dancing at this point because he's hurting himself). He loves lamb and rice, his mom and dad, cheese and hotdogs and taking medicine because he gets cheese and or hot dogs... He sleeps all day, gets a little sun, eats dinner, plays awhile with crazy monkey/gorrillla toys (all fleece, nothing hard!) and has a good job (head of security).

Recommendations:

  • Veterinarians -- LSU School of Veterinary Medicine -- puppy has better health care than we do! He always sees a specialist ie., orthopedics, opthomology, dermatology, internal medicine when he sees his friends there.
  • Doggie day care
  • Kennels
  • Breeders
  • Trainers
  • Pet stores
  • Foods
  • Parks/beaches/hangouts
  • or others!


Other dogs: nope

I'm so sorry for poor puppy, but he seems to be having a great life with you, and you seem to really care about him. I'm sure his skin allergies will get better too. but maybe if you want to try, i would give him lots of baths (but with out the shampoo, soap ect.) because the oils will probably make it worse. You could just try to wash him a lot, with hot water and groom him a lot. hes sooo cute and sweet!!! hope that might work!!

I am sorry about what happened. I used to work on that farm where they raise the puppies. Actually the ones that were raised there were good quality, but because of the huge demand he had for puppies, he started buying them from other breeders to meet the demands. That was his down fall. Good luck with puppy. I am glad you love him.

Puppy kinda gave me a Colin Farrel vibe - he's cute, stumbles around and like to do crazy things (like chew on chunks of ice! Is that wha he is doing in that picture?)
