My name is Nixon but you can call me Mummy’s boy … or Daddy’s boy. What? I can love them both! I’m a 12-week-old Mastiff x Great Dane bundle of love with devilish good looks and a cracking personality to match.

They laugh at how much of a vocal pup I am, I make funny groans when I need a cuddle and once I get them I groan to say thanks.

In my new home I will need someone there for me all the time, or if that’s not possible, at least most of the time with a furry friend. If you can’t provide that then it is a big deal breaker for me and my mum will agree, I can’t cope on my own. I’ve spent the majority of my very short life in a pound and now that my foster family have shown me what unconditional love is I won’t settle for anything less, but I promise the love will be reciprocated x1000!

I hang out with my sister Nova, and Tank and Zuri my foster siblings during the day and I bet if they could talk they’d call me the ankle biter but I just love them sooooo much! I’ve been well associated with other dogs and would love a brother or sister who I can wrestle with and make dinosaur noises with.

It’s very important my new family takes me to puppy school. I’ll be quite a solid dude when I’m older so training is a must! Please understand that I’m still only a baby and I will go through that ‘puppy stage’ as they call it, but I’ll grow out of it nicely with training, patience and persistence (and lots of love).

I’m a very inquisitive little man, so my new yard needs to have no gaps or holes where I could possibly escape from, and fences high enough so I can’t jump over once I’m fully grown into a big, strong and incredibly handsome boy. I can’t go to rural fencing (eg: mesh or wire).

As I am not yet desexed, I am is only available for adoption to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Central Coast and Port Stephens because I’ll need to be returned to our vet for desexing when I’m approximately 5 months old.

I can’t wait to find my fur-ever home!

If you think I would fit perfectly into your family and would like to meet me, please contact my foster mum Brittany via email with an adoption questionnaire to

I am in foster care in the Newcastle area.

Nixon’s adoption fee is $550 and includes his desexing, vaccinations and microchipping. He has been treated for fleas and worms.
