Tuff is our handsome bull and the protector of the cattle. He’s a mini-zebu, but don’t let his size fool you. He was rescued locally from Miami, Florida, by a breeder with his brothers Blue, Tug, and his sister, Belle. According to the previous owner, who claimed she could no longer afford their care, they would be sent to a slaughterhouse if she couldn’t find a rescue to take them.

He is always monitoring who visits, and if he doesn’t know you, you will hear about it. Very loudly too! He will bow his head, kick up the sand, and make sure you know not to even think about hugging any cows. He’s really a big softy inside and loves kisses (if he knows you). Give him an apple, and he’ll love you forever! Since arriving at the sanctuary, he’s been thriving and doing wonderfully. He will live out his life free from harm here at the sanctuary.
