All in the Family


Bullmastiff / German Shepherd Dog

Vito is a very special dog. My boyfriend and I adopted our "son" from a shelter in April 2008 when he was 4 months old. He was abused, neglected, scared and orphaned. He was taken away from his mother 2 days prior and had a sister who was adopted the day before. We were told he had "social problems" and didn't like people before even being allowed to meet him. From the moment I sat with him he immediately crawed into my lap and rested his head on my leg. I knew we were the ones who were meant to give him a new, loving home. We were told that because of his temperment and size(he was already 29 lbs!) he would most definitely need obedience classes. He was not house broken, leash trained or socialized when we brought him home. My boyfriend and I are happy to say that with our love and patience (and him being the best dog ever!) no classes were needed. We are the luckiest puppy parents in the world as even at 8 mo. (65 lbs now), he has no need for classes. He has become the favorite with the neighbors' kids and trusts people whom we know and trust ourselves. He is an excellent watch dog and very much like our child as we bring him everywhere we go and even sleeps with us in our bed! Vito has also become the "big brother" to our two cats, Minx and Zoe, who he looks after during the day. I wish everyone could have a special dog like Vito and save a life like we did.
