Senior mastiff mix ‘Brown’ has perfected the art of snuggling

Senior mastiff mix Brown spent the last 13 years perfecting the art of snuggling, and he can’t wait to show off his skills.

The light brown-colored male mastiff mix is up for adoption with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

“Brown is an easygoing fellow who’s not asking much of our his future family,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “He loves leisurely walks, comfy bed and all the ear scratches you have to offer. Bonus points if you let dogs on the couch!”

Brown’s adoption fee has been pre-paid by a generous donor. Learn more at
