A volunteer writes:
Onyx is a 4 year old neutered Bull Mastiff that has been cared for by his family since he was a few months old. He has lived with 10 and 8 year old children and 6 month old babies as well. He was very affectionate with them, allowing the children to pet him, lie on him and tugs on him. Onyx has lived with a male bull dog in the past and was playful with him. Onyx becomes excited when he notices other dogs outside and he attempts to approach them and play.
Onyx does not react if he is approached while eating or having his toys taken from him. He is accustomed to being bathed 1x a month at home. He allows his owner to clean his ears and brush his teeth as well. Onyx enjoys being brushed. His owner describes him as a lap dog because he always wants to be petted. He will bark if the doorbell rings but will sniff at anyone unfamiliar that enters the home. When he is left alone, Onyx behaves well in the home.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Onyx is accustomed to being walked at least 3x a day for about 15 minutes each. He enjoys playing with stuffed animals. He knows the commands “sit” “lay down” and “paw.” He is accustomed to going to dog parks at least 1x a week and normally plays with the other dogs there. He is fed 2 cups 2x a day of Eukanuba large breed dog food. Onyx will sleep by the front door of the home.
Onyx would approach and sniff the Admissions Counselor. He would wag his tail while being petted. He responded to the command “sit” when offered a treat. He was able to be collared, scanned for a microchip (negative) and photographed without displaying any negative behavior.
