This is a courtesy cross post for Jabba, a 6-year-old male Boerboel that is available for adoption at Paws & Claws in Rochester, MN.  Please get in touch with Paws & Claws directly if you think you have an interest in Jabba.  Here is what the shelter has to say about Jabba:

Meet Jabba! This handsome fella came to Paws and Claws when his owner could no longer care for him.  Jabba is a 6 yr old African Boerboel weighing in at 150 pounds. Jabba needs some socialization and can get nervous around new people. He would do best in a home with no children and plenty of room to run and play. Jabba seems to like women best and he gets along with other dogs. We ask the adopters have knowledge of Jabba’s breed, and have have plenty if time to spend with him.

Visit Paw & Claws on Facebook to get additional information about Jabba.  You can also visit their website:  Paws & Claws Animal Shelter.  The dog and cat shelter is located at:

3224 19th Street NW
Rochester, MN 55901

Shelter Representative:  (507) 288-7226 or info@pawsandclaws.org

This is a courtesy cross post, so I’m sorry I do not have additional information about him.

Max has been adopted!

Update 2/28/2015: Max has been adopted! We are so happy for Max and his connections. Max’ original owner was willing to keep Max while we diligently looked for the perfect home. Potential adopters were screened, because we wanted to make sure we would find a home where Max could thrive. He is such a good boy, and he deserved the best! I am happy to report that Max will be living with Joanne in Northern VA. I am sure Max will provide some security to Joanne, and provide a lifetime of wags and kisses.

Zeus is a 2-year-old neutered male Boerboel/Cane Corso mix.  He is a good dog that will do best in a quiet home that can provide him the love and attention that he craves.  He currently lives with an older male Labrador/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, and does well with him.

Zeus2 2015Zeus is shy when introduced to strangers, but deep down inside he is a sweetheart that just wants to please.  He is crate-trained and kennel trained.  He exhibits some separation anxiety when left alone, but he is happy to hang out in his crate when his family needs to leave the house.  He is good in the house when his people are home, even when they are sleeping.  He will sleep all night long without any problems.

Zeus - Boerboel Rescue MDHis owner has made the difficult decision to re-home Zeus as his owner works during the day and Zeus must be crated until she gets home.  He enjoys chewing on his bones, and is generally a good boy.  Zeus is housebroken, and he knows some commands including down and stay.  He will whine when he needs to go out, which is his way of signaling that he needs to go potty.

Zeus3 2015Zeus is currently living in Clinton County, MD.  If you think you might be interested in adopting Zeus, please fill out the Contact Form below and we will get in touch with you.  Thank you for considering adoption!

Update (2/09/15) – Stella has been adopted.

Stella is a South African Mastiff (Boerboel).  She is currently located in Berwick, PA, which is in NE Pennsylvania, not far from Hazleton.  She is an owner surrender, and the current rescue trying to help does not have anywhere to go with her.  The family is seeking help to re-home her and plan to take her to SPCA if no home is found soon. She needs to be an only dog.

We’re waiting for more details on her, but they told us that she keeps trying to escape their home when no one is home and she breaks out of her crate. So a home where someone is home a lot would be a good idea or someone that can deal with getting the dog ok with using a crate or a room that she can’t destroy anything and is able to be safe and contained. She is very people friendly and enjoys couch time watching TV with her humans.

Fill out an application on the Haven to Home website at www.haventohome.org.  Rescues that are in a position to take her can call Haven to Home at 570 884 5067 or e-mail haventohome@gmail.com.
