Krisha,

There is a Bullmastiff rescue in West Covina.  There is also a Gentle Giants rescue in the Inland Empire.  You can also contact Stella's Hope in Orange County.  All of these are great rescue organizations who will ensure that this dog is not euthanized and will be placed in the proper home.

PS - I currently own 2 Bullmastiffs and I think that you should know that whatever dog you decide to adopt as a family pet, if you go the "puppy route", will have a lot of energy.  Mastiffs, in general, are a very calm breed and the EASIEST of any puppy that I have every had; however, puppies are puppies and there will be chewing, playing, potty training, and generalized obedience training etc. that will need to be addressed.  Try to check out these rescues and see if you can get a 2-4 year old dog.  If calm is what you are looking for, a Mastiff is a great dog but it does require a seasoned/experienced owner.  They are a large breed and if you do not know how to handle such a breed, start smaller and easier...like a good old fashioned mix. :)  They are lovable, grateful to have a home, usually live long and fabulous dogs to have...the best of all breeds is always a mix.

Yes, Denise, I agree with you about crates.

You can find an owner on Craigslist, believe it or not.  You cannot "sell" pets there, but can give away free.

Just be careful you find an honestly good new owner.

I too had never had a dog in my life.  I got my little yorkie/toy poodle mix when she was eight weeks' old.  She was a handful, full of energy.  I was at my wits' end with her at times.  We ran together a lot and still do!   The puppy will settle down over time.   We still go for long walks/runs and she's the joy of my life!  Please reconsider giving the puppy away!  If you desire to get in better shape, maybe you guys could work as a team! 

You have family members to help out.  A doggie needs a home and I'm now more convinced that a home is not a home without my little Keno.  BUT I never had kids.  I put her in an Infantino shoulder pappose type thing and we went to Best Buy and Kohl's tonight.  Yes, people think I'm nuts, but always comment on how calm she is with me.  They just want to be with you!  I have taken her on at least ten airplane rides, stayed in numerous hotels, I love her more than words can describe.  They give unconditional love!

Best advice I can give too is crate train the dog!  My little Keno loves her crate; it's her home.  When we go to a hotel, she is in her crate waiting patiently for us to return with a treat!  It's all good.  She will bark when we leave the room, but if she's in her crate, she's content, safe and happy!
