Mason came in on the 13th of March via another RSPCA centre. He was given up by his previous owner after they had to go into hospital. When he arrived with the RSPCA he had a condition called cherry eye which had to be operated on. After a few months of operations and treatment Mason is finally ready to start his search for a new home.
Mason is not an easy dog! He can be very wary of strangers, although once he knows you is a big, soppy teddy bear! He is a large boy (45kg) and we think he is crossed with a Great Dane. He can be strong on the lead and needs an owner who is capable of holding onto him and can continue with his training.
Mason knows sit and his name on command, is ok when groomed and loves to play with toys, especially soft ones. He is still very much a puppy and can be mouthy and jump up if not handled correctly. Mason enjoys a cuddle and really is a big softy once he trusts you.
He needs a pet free home and can be reactive towards other dogs when walked.
Mason is looking for a very experienced home with someone who has had large breeds before. He is not suitable to live with children.
Due to Mason’s ongoing eye treatment he will need to continue to be monitored by our vet who is in Burgess Hill. Any new owner will need to live within a reasonable distance of the practise or be prepared to travel there. He also needs a rural home with a garden and would not be suitable to be walked around local dog parks.
