VIDEO: Rescued mastiff named Handsome finds his forever home

He’s not the same dog that the BC SPCA saved back in December, and now he is enjoying his new home after making a full recovery.

A mastiff named Handsome was rescued from a property in Hope after being found tethered with a chain outside in freezing cold temperatures. He was severely emaciated, and the photos were painful to look at.

But now, Handsome has found his forever home. Adopters Pat and son Nolan say the friendly gentle giant, who has gained weight since being rescued and looks much healthier, will have a large, fenced backyard to run around in, where he’ll be free to just be a dog.

“No more chains,” Pat says. “From now on it’s all belly rubs.”

Maple Ridge BC SPCA Branch staff and volunteers even threw Handsome a party for his happy adoption day, and are pleased to see him going to a loving home.

“It can be hard to say goodbye – he’s such a friendly, lovable guy despite what he’s been through – but of course, this is the happy ending we always want to give the animals in our care,” says Maple Ridge BC SPCA Branch manager Jenn Stack.
