Piesco is a lush, big young boy, with a gorgeous fluffy cream fur and the personality of a goofy puppy. He is an active dog who just wants to play all day long with other dogs, go for walks and be next to people. He was found abandoned in a village, wandering around months ago and nobody claimed him. Poor boy is just still a big puppy really.
He is looking for an active family in a rural place, ideally with other active dogs, but no children — not because he’d mean to them, on the contrary, he loves them, but because he is very strong and plays rough, so he could easily knock them over. He still needs training to become a more well-rounded dog, as he is still learning there are boundaries to be kept to, especially to stop his nipping habit. Other than that, he is a wonderful dog, very loving and fun to have around. A rural location and another dog to play with and plenty of room to play is what this fella needs.
His Best Points :
Active, playful, sociable with all animals and people, good-natured and very affectionate
Foster Report :
Piesco is lovely with everybody, lots of confidence. He is not shy or fearful of people at all, he’s never been, and he is gentle with our children once he calms down, but they have to be careful when is playing, as Piesco does not seem to realize how big and strong he is, so we think he should only live with older children in order to avoid accidents.
His only issue is that he nips our hands (or bottoms too!) to attract our attention when he wants to play or simply be cuddled. He is not aggressive in the slightest, not with people or any other animal, but it’s a habit that we are working on removing. He can be very active at times but, as a typical Mastin, he also loves to lie down next to someone, and he can be calm for long periods.
He is extremely affectionate; he loves being cuddled; he would never get tired of someone petting him. He hasn’t been left alone many times but those few times he had a bad time and did not like being left alone. He walks well on the lead, he can get excited if he sees something interesting and make you spin, but he doesn’t pull. Our cats are extremely sociable and used to dogs, and he could be homed with cats but only if they are like that.

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 be activated from the link on our website.
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.
