The Gentle Giant!

Hi, pals! My name is Matteo. I’m a cute, cuddly boy with a love for adventures. I’m a 3-year-old, 85-pound Mastiff. I’m already neutered and I’m a healthy fella. When a shelter in Riverside needed a space for me, TAP came to my rescue. I’m hanging out at TAP HQ right now, and can’t wait for a sweet foster home and/or my furever home!

I’m a sweet boy who adores all humans. I like adults and I’m great with kids, too! I’m not a big fan of cats and I get a bit jittery around other dogs. I need time to adjust and more practice building confidence. Even though I’m a big boy… I’m really just a big baby!

I’m an energetic guy who loves squeaky toys and chasing after my ball. I am a pro hiker and have a love for the great outdoors! Once I’ve gotten my exercise, I’m a superb snuggler. I adore giving cuddles and being affectionate with my people.

I’m a well-behaved boy who is progressing well with my house and bathroom training. I am working on my leash training, too. I whimper a little when you leave, but I’ll settle down after a few minutes. All in all, I’m a great pooch who would love to keep training with you!

If you like to explore by day and cuddle by night, I’m your guy! I’d love to be in an active household where I can get my daily exercise. I would do well with kids but need time to acclimate to other pups. If I sound like the gentle giant for you, let’s meet for a playdate! My adoption fee is $350 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.
