Betty is owned by Barbara and is 24 inches tall and is weighing in at 54 pounds. She is a total sweet heart! Loves her family! Does not want anyone by her house! She has an excellent sounding bark, which I love. Her protectiveness definitely reminds me of the American mastiff. She also has webbed feet. She loves to run! She is very smart!!! Was potty trained very easily and quickly. She’s a jumper and that comes from the poodle side for sure. She loves to chew on her toys, has never chewed on something she wasn’t suppose too. She loves her belly rubbed, will stop whatever she’s doing if you start to rub her belly.
She does not shed or drool at all. She loves to ride in the car! She’s an excellent dog!! We love her so much!!!!
Ross Beverley has Chewie, he is 27 inches tall and right at 72 lbs. Drags his feet like a Mastiff, jumps and pounces like a poodle. Has the softest coat ever. Absolutely no drool whatsoever. Maybe a very little when excited with food like popcorn. He was the easiest dog I ever owned to potty train and within a month of being home he was sleeping the entire night without needing a bathroom run. He is developing a very deep throated bark but still gets the little annoying puppy bark when playing with another dog and not getting his way. One thing we have noticed is that his nose is constantly running and he seems to itch quite a bit. We had some issues with meds early on but this is a constant thing and not from grooming so not sure if its environmental since he has done in Florida and Virginia or food related. These things are hard to pinpoint especially the food portion and rarely do dogs exhibit food allergies within the first year but we have a few ideas we are gonna proceed with. He is by far the easiest traveling dog ever. We drove from Michigan to Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh to Virginia Beach and from there to Florida and from Florida back to Virginia some 12 hours and not once has he ever thrown up and for the most part just lays and sleeps. It is truly the perfect breed having the intelligence of the poodle and the Mastiff tendencies we all have grown to love. I wish his affection was more to my previous AM but he seems to be more of a morning and late evening type with regards to that. The only thing that gets me is his case of the zoomies where he just wants to run buck wild and not listen at all and that usually is only outside and between 10-11PM when we let him out before bed. He is also extremely lazy as he wants to sit and eat. He was laying and eating until we elevated his bowl and he still tries to eat his entire meal in 30 secs so we got a slow feeder where he has to work in the maze to get his food out but he has mastered that as well. I honestly have nothing but praise for this breed and for those on the fence thinking about it, I hope this helps. For us, it was a personal decision as we loved the AM but his 240 lbs at the end of his life took a toll on us and our medical conditions so this was a compromise. I am hoping for 90-120 lb dog but based on everything avail online, given the fact he is just over 70 now most likely means 140 ish in the end..His coat has remained black with a couple of little spots that appear to have a little gray in it. And most of all, he absolutely positively loves people. He will not hesitate to approach anyone..Just hope I can get him out more sooner than later but my wife is recovering from a major surgery so not totally in the cards just yet.
It was late when I type this but one thing I forgot to mention on Chewie is his desire to be part of any activity in the kitchen. If he is in a coma in deep sleep and you just open the fridge, he is Johnny on the spot. You open the silverware drawer, he is there. You have anything to do with food, he is there. He will just sit and stare at you and I believe he would do this for hours. He is easily food motivated. One thing which is extremely important is my mother is extremely allergic to dogs. When she visits my brother who has 2 AM's and when we had ours, she required numerous Benadryl per day to just get by. With Chewie, she is completely ok and does not itch constantly so if you are allergic, this is a good alternative and I would say for sure hypoallergenic.
oh crap I forgot the ice maker. Every single time you get ice, he comes a running...
Jaxx is owned by Marc and Deanna Towne and is almost 70 pounds and is built like a mastiff! He has tiny spurts of energy followed by a need for a long nap. He’s a super sweet puppy who just likes to be loved and hang with his family. He doesn’t drool at all which is amazing and has been really healthy overall. He also had a bad reaction to his rabies shot and was sick for a few days but otherwise has been great!! Best temperament I have ever seen from a dog and our trainer describes him as the laziest puppy she has ever encountered!!
Told in 3 parts by owner Julee Whalin. Sorry this has taken me so long but it is her 6 month bday today! Okay So Lādys Ley B. Is somewhere between 62-68 lbs I think she’s 25-26 inches tall. Sorry I just have no reason to bring her to the vet right now she’s all caught up - I waited to get her Rabies and I made them give her a Benadryl before. She is on a Seresto collar for fleas and ticks. How do I describe her - she a very sweet monster that likes to challenge me and get away with things. She plays all day and she’s always with me when I'm not at work. Yes she loves food that goes without saying - as far as training I don't let her even look at me when I'm eating and if she cant handle it or counter surfs she is escorted to crate town which she enjoys now. She well frankly folks she’s a busy body. You cant go anywhere without her listening in stopping to see or otherwise intruding or introducing herself. She says HI the everyone and is so happy that sometimes her shake-butt gets there before she does. She is super protective of the house and has a nice guttural warning growl to lightning bugs, hood cats and even the occasional pit bull perp that likes to try to come see how the monster lives. We call her the "gentrifier". So she looks like an expensive stuffed animal/monster which is amazing to me because well thats what I'm into. See for yourself. (Monster paws inset) Looks like a gorilla costume.
Part two: the diva. Basically only her dad can sit up front because he can handle her girthy beastness. Otherwise it’s backseat for all.
Part three: Lays in dirt to cool off seems like a good idea. Can I add that Lādys has come out of her shell so much she introduces herself to everyone. She’s passing out handshakes all the time.
Roxie belongs to Sarah Foreman, she is 53 lbs and about 23 inches tall. Her hair is coarse and wavy and has been turning gray throughout like a wolf. She looks like an Irish Wolfhound, not at all like any of her siblings (or like a mastiff or poodle). She does not drool. She is very smart and confident.
She sheds a bit. But have not had to have her groomed (like I did my former golden doodle). Roxie loves the water and always wants to carry a stick in her mouth when we go for walks.
I kept Cercei and hope to add her to my breeding program, she is 26 inches tall and 68 pounds, she has both traits of the mastiff and the poodle. Her coat is wavy and very soft, she does not drool or shed. She is energetic and playful, kind of a clown but she can be stubborn when she doesn't want to do something, I believe this is a mastiff trait.
