Saint Bernard
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

No HOMES WITH CHILDREN UNDER 16! Good with large females, smaller submissive males and cats. Mozart is one of our behavioral cases, we totally adore and love. We truly love them all, but this guy is special! He literally warning bit me twice on the way home when I picked him up, both times he did not break the skin. He was severely traumatized & devastated to leave his temp foster home, but is now so happy to be with me. When its his turn to get out for his walks, one on one time or training time he is such a lover. He will not go outside to go potty alone, he demands that we go with him. He will run back to the door immediately if I don't walk outside with him and grab and tug on my arms to go with him. He is a case that I thought was going to be the worst I had ever seen, but to my surprise he actually has the potential to come out of our care pretty amazing. He just made me earn his trust & respect first, which took over a month to do. He knew he was bigger, stronger and didn't hesitate to show me at first. In the beginning I could not touch his food or water bowl if he was in the room. He would immediately come after me showing me that they were his! Now I can touch all of his things with no issue, he just always checks to see what I am doing. I think more curious if I am giving treats in his bowl. He now trusts us, he is coming along so good. He is STUBBORN though for sure! When I give him commands, it often takes a few times before he will do it, but he is getting better every day. He absolutely loves car rides & to get out of the house, he is perfect & comfortable in his muzzle & gives me zero trouble wearing it. He is extremely food motivated, so that gives us a leg up! He has been evaluated & is seeing our behavioral trainer & we will continue sessions until he is cleared for adoption. This boy that I thought would take forever to rehabilitate, is actually surprising me every day. He is huge, he is a scruffy Saint Bernard with a thick freckled coat. I brush him daily& and he rarely sheds anything unless the seasons are changing, his coat is dense, but also soft & fluffy. He is tall, large & extremely intimidating and he is one that many people stop & say WHOA! BUT, if you know him & love him, he will be the most loving loyal companion you can ever imagine! He is silly and very mischievous! He literally looks all over the house for things to steal... He once jumped into my bathtub and was sniffing around. I had a sugar scrub bar on the edge that I immediately grabbed, thinking it might look appealing to him. Then I heard a CRUNCH and GULP! I PANICKED trying to figure out what he ate! Was it a razor?? No it was a brand new bar of DIAL SOAP! I called the poison control hotline, they told me to call the vet. I called the ER vet and the said not to worry, give lots of water & no food for 12 hours. At his weight it should be fine. I was actually worried he would poop bubbles. Mozart keeps me on my toes, he is like literally having a ginormous toddler running around at times! He gets into everything, including the shower or tub with you if he can! In his first foster home, he ate a tin foil ball & a full box of Little Debbie Brownies.. Both times he was rushed to the Veterinary hospital and both times they sent him home, said he should be fine at his size and weight! He loves toys and squeaky big balls, he will come out of his crate and search the house until he finds one, then carry it outside to go potty, never dropping it. He keeps me on my toes! He loves to turn on the bathroom faucet to drink water from the tap, but he surely doesn't care about turning it off. He is funny & again my mischievous boy! He is fantastic with my entire pack, but I would definitely say he is a alpha male and should probably be with a very friendly, tolerant female and/or smaller very submissive male. He does lack some dog manners occasionally, he will nearly flip a dog over smelling during the doggy greeting, but getting better. He loves puppies too! He means no harm, he is just excited & truly doesn't realize how big he is. He has a crazy traumatic history, but he is also so loveable, sweet, a velcro to your side dog & unbelievably loyal. I know that if anyone posed a threat he would protect without hesitation. He is really coming along in his training and will be one I will have a hard time letting go, but I can't keep them all! He deserves so much more than I can give him personally, especially with constant fosters in and out of my home. He deserves all the love and affection that he didn't get his first 2 years. He deserves to be someone's best friend! If you are looking for a Saint Bernard or mix, we always have them coming in as we rescue & deliver Nationwide!
