Gender: Male

Age: 7 - 8 years

Neutered: As part of adoption process

Hey Max here! I am an 8-year-old English Mastiff looking for my chilled retirement home.

All my friends say I am full of character and personality but I do have the size to match! I can get over excited sometimes and jump up at my humans, but it’s only to show my love and to ask for extra treats ?

I enjoy a potter around the large paddock at Rain Rescue and I could play with my favourite snake toy for AGES before settling down for an afternoon snooze! I haven’t been walked much in the past so I am still working on my lead manners and trying not to pull my handler too much when I get a really cool smell but I do agree anyone who wants to walk me should do so in quieter places, be super strong and continue using a Dogmatic head collar and positive training methods (TREATS :P)

My ideal home would definitely be someone with a large secure garden as I don’t plan on doing lots of walking now I am an older gentleman though. As I enjoy the company of people so much, I would hope not to be left alone for too long, so I can snuggle up in my bed knowing you aren’t too far away.

Adoption info


We want all the dogs and cats we rescue to find a new home, but we also want to make sure it’s the right home for them.

Our three-step process helps us get this right while making it as simple as possible for you to adopt. All animal viewings are by prior appointment only. Studies have shown that walking around looking at homeless dogs is extremely stressful for both animals and people and negatively impacts their welfare. You will see a much truer picture of the dog's personality when introduced away from the kennel environment. We have found that by using our ‘matching’ process, we get the right dog for the right home and the right home for the right dog.

You can help us make sure the match works by putting careful thought into the responsibility you will be taking on. And not just you – everybody at home should understand what will be involved before you apply.

On average our adoption fees are:-

Dogs £350-£500

Some dogs and cats we may ask for more adoption fee and some less depending on the circumstances.

Note: We often ask more for certain pedigree or young dogs, as people often take them from rescue and then sell them again on the internet which we feel is horrendous. All the adoption money you pay will go towards helping another dog in need.

All our dogs and cats will be neutered (if safe to do so), vaccinated, flead, wormed and microchipped which will be registered to you on adoption. 

All pets come with 4 weeks free Petplan insurance, 2kg Bag of Burns food. 

All dogs and cats have been assessed by the Rain Rescue team who will work with you so we ensure we get the right match for you and for me.
