Bolillo is a beautiful big cream Mastin boy who is very calm and gentle but very strong even though he is an older boy. The vet tells us 12 years of age but we suspect he isnt that age at all.
He walks well on his lead & enjoys a little stroll, he will not go to the toilet in his kennel so we think he is housetrained and has been abandoned by owners.
He enjoys a cuddle even though he is big, he is a calm gentle giant.
All Bolillo wants is a big soft bed to rest his bones on in a quiet home with not much going on around him.
In excellent health for his age. Loved by all the volunteers
Found abandoned in the countryside and brought into the rescue.

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
