About Big Poppa

Adoption Fee: $50
Pit Bull / Mastiff
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

'I simply go by Poppa. I'm a five year old male Mastiff/Pit mix. I was adopted by my current Mom and Dad April 2017. While they love me very much, I prefer to be the only furbaby and don't always get along with cats. They want me to have the best and happiest life ever! And want me to be placed in a home I can spend the rest of my life being spoiled in. Sadly, before they found me I had been neglected, abused, and jumped around from owner to shelter. If you're excited about becoming my new family, please contact my current Mom.' *Five year old Mastiff/Pit Mix Breed *Neutered *Up-to-date on Shots/Vaccinations *Potty Trained *Crate Trained *Not completely leash trained, but we have been working with him, and he's almost got it. *Has had no prior training of any kind, he has been doing well with basic commands, but needs continued training. *Loves running the yard, and plays with Rope and Bone style toys. Poppa will play fetch in a manner of speaking - he will chase the toy, but then wants you to chase him to get it back. * Poppa is a 70 pound lap dog! Will lay at your feet while you cook, sit on your lap while you binge watch Netflix, lay at the edge of the tub while you shower. *Hands down the best hugger!! We are truly heartbroken in having to rehome Poppa. He is a much loved member of our family. While he has become best friends with our Pit/Boxer mix, he demands attention, and is not taking so well to our newest addition to the family. We do not recommend he go to a home with multiple dogs, one companion of similar size will be perfect for him. We do not recommend he go to a home with Cats. While we have not noticed a lot of aggression towards our family cats, we have seen signs towards strays and a family cats that have stayed in our home. We are unsure how Poppa will interact with young kids and infants. He has had limited exposure to kids (4-10) and seemed to be okay, but we are positive he is fine with adults. Poppa has so much love to offer, and we want him to be placed in a good home where he will be loved and spoiled like we have done for him. We ask only applicants who are willing to share a spot on the couch or a side of the bed apply. We prefer applicants apply through his Adopt a Pet profile at If you have questions or concerns, you can contact me via email.
