“When I first saw the Mastiff roaming around, he was just peering into our office door,” recounted Kristin Erwin. She named the dog Hoss and noticed that he wagged his tail while looking at her.
Kristin Erwin mentioned that her Texas county lacks animal control or leash laws, which results in many stray or abandoned dogs in the area.
Despite posting photos of Hoss on lost and found pages on social media, no one claimed him. The following day, Hoss emerged from one of their work trailers, overjoyed to see them again. With no foster homes available and the weekend approaching, Kristin and her husband decided to foster Hoss themselves.
It was apparent to Kristin that Hoss had never been inside a house before.
He was hesitant to come inside and seemed to be afraid of floors. They kept him separated from their own dogs for a week, but soon after, he was happily playing with them. It didn’t take long for him to adapt to being a house dog. He quickly discovered the couch, and when he found the bed, he was in heaven! A month later, a Bullmastiff rescue in New Jersey found the perfect forever home for him. He was renamed Bunker and is now teaching his new mastiff brother how to have fun!
Kristin is overjoyed that Hoss/Bunker has found a loving home. She and her husband have been rescuing dogs since 2015 and are currently in the process of building a dog kennel so they can continue fostering more dogs in the future.
