Those of you who know me, know my love for the dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff). I have been looking for another dog to add to the household to keep my 2 year old female Hazel company. I found the right one for both of us.

Meet Bill (Buster right now..but, Bill when he gets here)


Bill is a 2 year old that has had a rough life. He was abused by his first owner then abandoned by his last owner. In spite of it all, he'* a knucklehead, a flirt and a clown who loves people and other dogs.

I met Bill on a business trip last week in Torrance, CA. I will be traveling on business December 6th through the 9th in San Antonio, TX and will fly from there to Los Angeles. I have a one way car rental and will pick Bill up on the morning of the 10th and road trip back home to Washington with him. I hope to make the trip back by the 12th.

I wont have any business travel for awhile, so I will be able to spend some bonding time with him and earn his trust and mutual respect.

Bills has some medical issues that will require some care and love to work through. All of which he will get at my home from me and Hazel.

Other Bordeaux'* need homes as well.

If you want to learn more about this powerful and wonderful breed, check this page out. They also have a rich history.

Great dog Kevin. I'm sure he will be happy. Warms the heart when you take a neglected animal and give it a loving home. I've got a cat sleeping on my legs right now that we did that very thing for.

Thanks John. The little fella is just getting over demodex mange and a staph infection of the skin. I'm sure his last owners rejecting him and all the instability in his life didn't help. But, I can fix it!
