Breed: Cane Corso/Mastiff x
Age: 7 years old
Courage is not available for adoption at this time. We are still getting to know his personality and he continues to need medical care and supervision.
Courage has seen more horrors in his short life than many of us will see in a lifetime! He is the face of a fighting ring dog and bares the scars of his abuse. Paws for Miles rescue in Cincinnati reached out asking for help. They’d pulled Courage from one of their local shelters and discovered he had no tongue. We made the road trip and Courage joined the Mutt militia ranks.
Courage is covered in scars consistent with those seen in many bait dogs. His tongue has been removed at the base and we suspect it was likely ripped out by another dog. He is currently underweight but has learned to both eat and drink without the assistance of a tongue. He makes daily improvements are amazing.
We have not assessed him with other dogs as he needs time to heal and decompress. He can display defensive behavior when kenneled after hanging out with people he knows and trusts. Due to his ongoing medical and training needs he is not currently available for adoption.
