This pet is currently being listed by Giant Hearts Giant Dog Rescue, Inc ---- Get to know Ford ---- Status: Available
Ford is a 3-4 yr old Bullmastiff. We were originally told he was around 5 yrs old, but our vet aged him a little younger. He is very timid, all noises and sudden movement scare him. He does relax after getting used to a new home and new noises, but if he has not heard the noise before he gets jumpy. We have not heard a peep out of him since the day he came into rescue, no bark, whine, or growl. This boy is all love.
Ford is terribly afraid of certain items, we have not seen all of them yet, but we found cooking pans are something he runs from. He will stay away until he feels safe to come back around. This poor boy, we just cannot imagine what he has been through. Ford has some separation anxiety and if left outside alone when you are not home, he will jump or break through a 6 ft fence. He should not be allowed outside when you are not home and does best with a confident dog in the home that he can attach to. Ford cannot be an only dog and rescue remedy helps him a lot if given to him before you leave. He is just anxious and afraid to be alone.
Ford is heartworm positive and already starting his first step in treatment. If the adopting family is local, he can be adopted while undergoing treatment, as long as the adopting family agrees to adhere to the guidelines given by the vet during the full timeframe of treatment. He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Aside from the heartworms, Ford is a healthy boy and we do not forsee long term issues from the heartworms or treatment.
