A volunteer writes:
Mason is a big dog. He’s more than half my weight, but walked well on the leash with me. He only tugged a bit when he wanted to greet other dogs. He listened to me well. He seems to be house-trained, as he peed as soon as he could when I took him outside for a walk. Mason has a calm demeanor and is a sweetie. He looked up to me with a doggy smile while I rubbed behind his ears. Mason is an easy dog who would do well in a home with a laid back, but active, person.
