Arrival story/bio: Our family was dying tor a big breed dog, and after a great deal of research and a little luck, we settled on a South African Mastiff, or Boerboel, for those who are familiar. We picked him out at 6 weeks, brought him home at 9, and now he’s nearly 6 months old. Saz is a big baby… grows about 10 lbs every 3 weeks, and yes, he’ll be a big boy, but right now, he’s scared of everything! (Thank to Toni, we’ll be working on this.) We haven’t officially started SMS yet b/c sadly, Saz contracted Valley Fever and he has been lethargic and grouchy, plus not eating much. The VF has caused pneumonia and he’s wheezy and coughy. Poor guy. Once he’s up to it, we’ll begin training, which we are excited about!
