Bullmastiff and Neapolitan Rescue UK
Please complete each question in full, then email this
application to: email@example.com for
Bullmastiff and Neapolitan adoptions.
Completing this application to register for adoption does
not in any way obligate you to adopt a dog from us.
Please complete each question indicated by the shaded
areas, and provide any further information you require
regarding home visits at the bottom of the form.
We do not favour prospective adoptive homes where two or more dogs of the
opposite sex are residing already. In our experience, this can make it very
incompatible for many mastiffs, possibly leading to serious friction within the
pack. We strongly recommend only one female mastiff per household, having
found it easier on the whole to socialise neutered male mastiffs together.
