— Ace of
14, 2006 – Last
week I received a phone call from Dana Kaminer, a local woman who's involved
in Bullmastiff rescue. Dana wanted to talk with me about a 3-month-old puppy
named Ace. He arrived in rescue along with his mother, a purebred brindle Bullmastiff.
Both of them are living with Dana until good homes can be found. According to
Dana, Ace's father was a purebred Great Dane. "Ace looks a lot more like
a Great Dane than a Bullmastiff," she told me. She was wondering if I could
put her in touch with any Dane rescue groups that might be willing to cross-post
Ace on their websites to give him some additional exposure.
It seemed like a reasonable request,
so I asked for photos and told her I'd see what I could do. The photos arrived
and I don't know about you, but nothing about Ace suggests Dane lineage to me.
Although he is awfully cute, I see no physical traits that would lead me to believe
he was sired by a Great Dane. (Your thoughts?)
expressed my doubts and asked Dana if she was certain of Ace's parentage. Her
response? "Well, I thought I was 100% sure his daddy was a Great Dane, but
that was based on information provided by the woman who put his mama into Bullmastiff
rescue. Maybe not, huh?" We agreed that Ace's best chance for adoption is
Bullmastiff rescue, not Great Dane rescue. Fortunately for Ace, Dana is prepared
to foster him as long as necessary. She says he's an easy puppy with an outgoing
personality. He's been microchipped and he's up-to-date on all his shots.
If you happen to know anybody who might be interested in adopting this Bullmastiff-mix
puppy, please contact Dana in
Lexington, South Carolina, for more information.
