Hello, I'm Raven. I'm in Missouri. I don't have a mastiff yet but I'm in the process of researching and looking into breeders. Most of my experience with dogs is with bull breeds, particularly american bulldogs. 

I'm - hopefully - going to be getting a mastiff as a service dog prospect. I'm disabled and working with a private service dog trainer to assess dogs. 

I found this forum because I'd spoken to a breeder who sounded great so I decided to google her kennel and found a thread here with information about all the problems people had with her (thanks guys! Glad to have found out before I put any money into it.) 

I'm hoping to learn a little here from experienced owners and breeders, people who have worked with the breed a long time and can give me a little bit of understanding into the way these dogs think and work.

Hi everyone my name is Nicole, I'm a stay at home mother of 3 kids, 8,5, and 1. We recently just got our new baby girl Bella , she is a 3-4 month old English mastiff. My whole family loves her she is amazing. We actually got her from a pet store a couple of weeks ago! It does make me nervous alittle, we were looking at breeders then walk into this pet store called shake a paw, and just had to bring her home. I have lots of questions about her food. When we brought her home she was on pro plan and wouldn't eat it. And she had diarrhea. Thanks to your forum I've read that the food has to be grain and chicken free. So I switched her to earthborn meadow feast , she likes it a lot better but her stool still is soft, it's hard in morning then becomes softer as day goes on. Is this normal. She did have a parasite also called giadrna ( know I'm spelling wrong) she just finished her meds 2 days ago. Also how much should she eat a day? She doesn't eat all her food at once she goes to it throughout the day , is that normal? I've been giving her 3 cups twice day. Hope I'm writing all this in write spot if not can someone please tell me where I should write the questions? Thank u

Welcome nicole,
Im not a breeder or mastiff genius, just a current owner of a 4yr old english.. When mine was a puppy ( first 2 years) we fed him 3 times a day, 2 to 3 cups each time... These are very calm dogs and mine doesnt rush to eat all his food either, unlike my sisters lab that woofs it down in 2 seconds, which is not good and can be harmful to the dogs. I wouldnt worry to much about how fast she eats, if she is hungry she will eat, as long as she is eating some of it. If she doesnt touch it then there maybe something bothering her.

Hi all. My name is Dylan, and we have added this amazing addition to the family named Cuse. He is a brindle male. I always had mixed breeds growing up and was relatively new to finding a pure breed not from a pet store. I actually found an amazing checklist and walk through for what to ask and what should be asked of you by a good breeder on this site. My wife and I ended up getting Cuse (originally " Hercules") from really good people in Ohio. They made the experience amazing considering we were communicating half way across the country, and they were willing to drive the puppy to me rather then ship him because they didn't like the stress it can cause for the puppy. I have been in love with this man since I got him home, and he is the most perfect addition to our gaggle of two young daughters, a golden retriever and a cat. We have had him for just under two months and is 15 weeks old

We're long time dog and cat owners.  Currently have a 7 year old male GSD (working dog), a 12 year old female mini schnauzer who thinks she's a big dog, and our newest addition:  Pete the Great, a brindle English Mastiff who is 17 weeks old (I'll post pictures later).  We love Pete but not sure if the other two dogs do - when Pete's not exhausted he thinks everybody wants to play with him....not so much.

First mastiff and surprised at how sweet this breed is.  Pete just wants to be with people or sprawling in the middle of the kitchen floor while everyone walks around him.  Also surprised at how lazy and stubborn Pete can be.  Strangers love Pete and are fascinated with his Peteness - the paws, the face, the eyes, the long legs.

Hey guys I'm Caroline, I'm 31 year old illustrator living in London with husband and our 2 mastiffs Peanut who is an 8 year brindle English Mastiff and Rhubarb who is an orange dogue de Bordeaux X Neapolitan mastiff and nearly 4 years old. We have one human baby on the way too, and it's funny because when I found out I was online looking to rescue a 3rd mastiff baby... Maybe I'll wait a bit now and the little one can have a mastiff of his or her own to care for. The dogs are everything to us, we love dogs in general but especially mastiffs and other big head breeds, my dream is to move up to Scotland where we can afford more land and to start a doggy day care centre and rescue. My girls are so wonderful, gentle and kind, so soft that I thought they'd not even protect me in a danger situation but when a fight broke out in the street and tumbled into my house (inner city living I guess [frown] ) peanut proved to be quite the fierce dragon! Anyway thanks for having us on the forum. [smile]

my mastiff is original from Tibet. very strong and friendly.

What stuff are you give to your mastiff when she is pregnant?

I used to feed folic acid to her last year. It is very good supplement.

Hello Everyone,

I just just joined the Forum and wanted to introduce myself. I'm a long-time Mastiff owner, although I am currently dogless (hopefully not for too long!) since the passing of my big Mastiff Forsythe, who made it to a healthy 14 years before quietly passing peacefully during a routine nap.

I want to thank Linda for having this wonderful forum where there are so many great people. I'm really looking forward to interacting with others here like me who love Mastiffs and just dogs and animals in general. Hope you are all having a great summer![smile]

Hello, 
My apologies if I keep responding, but I haven't mastered negotiating this site yet!
I'm Lauren and have my 1st  EM, Unitas.  We've had him since 8 weeks and he just turned 9 months old.  He is so awesome.  A little skiddish around people, which is a new behavior, but will warm up.  We taking often to the dog park and he loves playing with the other dogs.  He doesn't know how big he is, although currently, I think he's a little on the smaller side at 115lbs.  He's extremely tall and lean and has lots of filling out to do.   We love cuddling with him, but he certainly has no sense of space.
I grew up with Great Danes, but this Mastiff has us hook, line, and sinker!!!
He is so awesome!
Looking forward to reading all of the posts and advice from everyone! FullSizeRender[1238361].jpg

Hi everyone. My name is Natalie. I have newly adopted a 12 week old half Blue nose pitbull, half mastiff named Nova. Her mother was the Blue nose and her father is the mastiff. My only problem is I do not know what type of mastiff her father is. I have plenty of experience with pitbulls but not much with the mastiff family and would love to hear your opinion. The woman I bought Nova from owned the mother and had this one picture of the dad unnamed.jpg  . Could you guys help me out so I can fully understand my new pups breed?

Hi Guys,
My name is Sheila, we live in Ontario Canada. I was introduced to the Mastiff breed about 20 yrs ago and have wanted one ever since. This year my loving sister gave me my 
Baby Bella! She will be 5 months old in a couple days. When I got her she was just 8lbs she is now around 75lbs. This is the funny thing I also have a 6lb mix poodle, Sunny thats 8yrs old. So when ever Bella is spooked she runs and hides behind my poodle Sunny.
