Biography

Unfortunately we have come to the long and super hard conclusion that we need to rehome our beloved Waylon. Waylon is an amazing dog in so many ways however has not been able to conquer being around children. While I had hoped that with my own child he would be different, he has exhibited fear aggression and has growled several times from behind gates from our baby. Due to his size we are not able to test further or safely. It has taken a year for us to come to this conclusion so it’s not been taken lightly. Because our baby is now super mobile Waylon has spent the last few months gated away from our family and/or outside and it’s not at all the life he deserves. I can’t imagine him having to live like this for 6-8 more years. He deserves so much love and attention, he used to be the center stage and things have completely changed, my heart breaks for him constantly.

About Waylon -
4 year old Male Shepherd/mastiff mix 100+ lbs

Things Waylon loves -

Walks
Off leash hiking (e collar trained)
Treats (super food motivated)

Things waylon doesn’t like -

Cooking - smell of smoke - reminds him of the fire alarm
Vets
Water
Kids
Grooming of any kind

Waylon prefers females , would do well in a home with an active single female or couple, no opportunity to be exposed to kids - large yard or fields to run

Experience with shepherds/mastiffs required - not a good dog for first time dog owners or someone with only retriever type experience, has guarding tendencies

Also please no negative comments, we love Waylon to death - this decision is based solely on the safety of our child and Waylon’s quality of life.
