‘Biggest ever’ dog looking for his forever home

Big-hearted mastiff Galahad weighs in at 100kg

A 100kg mastiff called Galahad is looking for a forever home with an owner whose heart matches his size.

The friendly four-year-old boy has had a lot of change in his life so far, having had several homes already.

Dogs Trust Canterbury Rehoming Centre Manager, Harriet Blaskett said:

“Galahad is easily the biggest dog we’ve ever had here at Canterbury, and he’s looking for a big-hearted owner to match.

“He’s got no idea of his size at all and just loves human company so he needs an owner able to cope with the demands of such a big dog.

“Galahad has had a lot of upheaval in his life so far, so can be a little unsure when he first goes somewhere, but once he’s comfortable he enjoys exploring his environment, sniffing (and knocking things over!) as he goes.

“His amazing foster carers say he loves nothing more than lounging on a sofa of his own – he sleeps on a two-seater! - and plodding around the garden. He has little respect for flower beds or hedges and chooses to walk through them, loves chewing toys, and spraying them with saliva with a flick of his head.”

Galahad is looking for a home with plenty of space that has direct access to a garden.  

Although Galahad likes other dogs he can find some a little overbearing so any dogs in the home should not be too boisterous. He cannot live with cats or small furry pets and has been known to chase horses. Galahad can live with children aged 12 and over.
