About Saiko & Tikka

Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Iused to be a stay at home mom who had time and a spouse to help with family life and take care of the dogs, house and kids. Since my divorce, now being a single parent, a move and going back to work I have found myself spread ultra thin and my fur babies do not get what they truly need anymore. I have tried for 2 years exploring other options before it coming to this. My ex doesn't help with them and lives in another state. I love these girls like my kids and it's been hard to see them not get what they once had/deserve. It is really starting to affect them. I feel major mom guilt about it and the fact I can't keep up financially with them like we used to. As hard as it is, I truly feel it's best at this time and that they deserve to have the time, care, and attention I used to be able to give them. 1- Age/breed/current on vaccinations? * Saiko: English Mastiff, 5 years old (DOB 03/03/18. Up to date on all vaccinations. * Tikka: English Mastiff, 4 years old (DOB 04/18/19. Up to date on all vaccinations. 2- Are they walked regularly? If not are they leash trained? *They used to be yes. But since changes they are lucky if we get one walk in a blue moon . Saiko is excellent on a leash, Tikka still pulls. 3- Have they ever lived with another dog? Gone to doggie play groups/training or socialization? How are they when they encounter another dog? * They have never lived with another dog. They have gone to a boarding facility in the past once and did ok. We used to take them to the dog park regularly but after some things in life happened, we haven't been in a while. They don't seem aggressive or anything. I have noticed both will have a 'pack mentality towards another dog though and not gang up on them aggressive but show they are a team of that makes sense at all. It makes me nervous cause I don't know what would happen if I just let them go. But I have introduced them to neighbors dogs and taken them to friends houses with their dogs and they have done fine when introduced properly and get along pretty well. 4- Have they ever lived with any other types of animals cats/hamsters/livestock? *No. I have seen them chase a cat though (just passing through our back yard). But they have not been exposed to any cats or hamsters besides that. Our neighbor behind us has a horse and they don't seem to really care one way or another. They do NOT do well with chickens, they got in to my brothers chicken coop and killed them. It happened so fast but it really didn't seem like they were trying to hurt them, more like play . (There were only 3 chickens). I think they would be best by themselves to be safe since they are large dogs. 5- Have they lived with children, if so what ages? * Yes!! They have both been with my kiddos since they (the doggies) were each 12 weeks old. My kids are now 8 and 6. They are AMAZING with kids and are so sweet, loving, protective and good with them! There has never been a single issue Ex: biting, growling, guarding etc. They are so mellow and sweet! 6- Do they have any socialization bias gender/race/age? * They both tend to feel comfortable around females and children the quickest. Saiko does better with men than Tikka. It takes some time to 'win Tikka's trust with males. Nothing ever happened to her that I'm aware of. It just seems to be her personality. 7- How do they meet new people both inside and out side of your home? Do you have frequent visitors? *They will initially bark when someone knocks on the door, rings the bell, they hear something outside...but when visitors come over they 'read the room. They may be cautious at first but they can tell who is genuine. They are very good judges of people. When we are out they are a lot more cautious and hesitant. They are not aggressive in any way. Sometimes get scared or nervous depending on the situation. 8- Have they done any formal training? If so with correction or reward method? *Just with me. Not professional training. Small treats, cheese or kibble was used as rewards. They can sit, lay down, shake, and they do ok with 'stay. 9- Are they food motivated? *Yes with treats, cheese, carrots etc. 10- Do they share toys/food/affection without any resource guarding? * They share everything! Including food/water bowls. They will sometimes both eat and drink at the same time. There has never been an issue or a sign of aggression. I have tried giving them their own bowls but they sometimes still share. 10- Are the house trained/doggie door/timed/bells? How do they let you know they need to go out? *They we're kennel trained as puppies. I no longer do that since they are now such large dogs. They are house trained and when they need to go out they sit/lay down by the back door. Sometimes whine if I'm not in the same room or see them there. 11- Are they kennel trained? Have they ever been in a confined space for sleeping or training purposes? Are they kennel/cage reactive? *They were as puppies but aren't any more due to their size. More info pls text!
