Which dog to get??
I am going to be getting a new pup soon and I have come down to the breeds of a Bullmastiff and the Mastiff or even a DougeDeBordeux
what do you guys or gals suggest?, have any of you had these breeds?
Here is a clip of the male Bullmastiff I would be getting a litter from.

I love Mastiffs. They are so sweet, big , and drooly. My dad just got 2 South African Boerboel, a type of bull mastiff. Both are females and awesome! They are 6 months old right now and weigh 70 lbs. allready. They will get to about 120 ( dang, they will weigh more than me!). They are very laid back and very good dogs, but they will scare the crud out of anyone if you want them to! Here is a link to a breeder's page. Oh, and if you live in a hot climate, these are the kind of mastiffs to get because they withstand heat very well.

Where did your dad purchase his from?? I have been searching the net for breeders in AZ but I hav only found a few Mastiff and bullmastiff breeders.

Abs- My pops got them from a breeder in San Antonio, Texas. They are a kind of rare breed , so going to another state to find the dog you want might be a good option. They can fly the dog to you if you want. I have done this more than once, you do what you must to get a quality, healthy dog.

Bull MAstiff brother! I want one so bad, but have to wait until one of the dogs we have crokes or something.

what was the cost of the dog if you dont mind me asking???
I am driving to AZ so a quick stop in Texas might not be a problem but if they can ship the puppy also, that might be a idea also.

I checked out the cane corso and i like them to. The Neopolitian mastiff I am not to much into. I have been reading some time on them and I will for sure have the time and room to play with the dog. I wouldnt have it any other way with my dog.

i am pretty torn between the bullmastiff, mastiff and Douge de ?? I am leaning toward the bull but I also like the mastiff. humm?????

Go for a german shepard trained by the police or something. Awesome awesome dogs if you can find one.
06-30-2003, 09:22 PM #15
abs-- My dad got his dogs "at cost" because the breeder is also a family friend. I will have to ask him the "going rate" and get back to you on that. Cane Corsos are awsome too. There is a breeder here in town with those and I went and checked them out a while back. Very beautiful mastiffs.
German Shepards area awesome!! I have one and I swear she speaks english!! She is very smart and thinks I am the greatest human that ever lived.

i'd prolly choose a german shep or a rot over a mastiff, but with those three i'd be goin for the bullmastiff..something about their eyes
07-01-2003, 04:08 AM #20
rots are out of the question, my friend has 3 of them and I like them but I dont want one. I have owned a G. Shephard before and I know the breed pretty good but that is not one of my choices this time.
I have always wanted a mastiff type of dog breed and now I have the time, money and space to acquire one. Plus my chow chow needs someone to play with and the cat is getting tired of getting its ass kicked by the dog.

1st off EXCESS -----SHOOTS FROM THE POINT AND SCORES! (that was bad bro! )
I have Boxers and I love them to death, I don't know if you've thought about them they have the same general look as the Mastiff's and are just unreal! How will a big dog like that hold up in the AZ heat? I'm curious about that part....Hell I had trouble when it was 122 driving through Bull Head City! Ran from car to friends house and that was it man! Hot as hell!

Abs, have you thought about a pitbull? If you look online at the American Pitbull Rescue Org. (Something like that) They have hundreds to choose from that have been rescued and rehabiltated for adoption. They make great pets and companions. The breed is very intelligent and not all are aggressive, mine is protective of the familybut other than that she's scared of her own shadow.

I like the boxers and pits but my one of my friend has a red bone pit named jade which is a wonderful dog and other friend has a all white boxer which is a great dog also. I like both of those breeds but I am still leaning toward the bigger dog. The mastiffs breeds do well in heat, there really a inside dog but they do need their daily excersise. I have read on them and I think they would be ok in AZ as long as it were kept inside during the summer heat but in the night or early morning they would be ok to roam the yard. Right now I am trying to find a breeder and if I found one on my way to AZ I would be able to pick it up. There is one in Oklahoma but I have yet to hear from them. Also I need to find a breeder with a litter of pups or upcoming litter in the next months. Well I have about 2.5 weeks before I leave MI and hopefully I can find a litter to choose from and be able to pick up my dog on my road trip.

When I do get my final choice I will post some pics to the new addition to my family.

It almost looks like the American Standish Terrier, where is your hobbies listed??? I am sorry bro but I dont see anything in your profile or any hobbies listed.
07-01-2003, 01:35 PM #27
I checked out the Neepolitian Matiff and it is a nice looking dog but I would probably get just the English Mastiff. I am not to sure if i like the muzzle on the Neo's but the size I do like.

Well lookey here!! Nice to see you join a thread and contribute. What?? Soon as you get your masters, you become to busy. I dont think a boxer is in the picture, I like them but not right now for a companion. I need a big working dog for a growing boy such a s myself:
- I havent moved yet bro, another 2 weeks and I will be on the road and by the 23rd or 24th I should be in AZ. I cant wait bro!! I have alot of shit to do with school and finding some employment as soon as I get there. But I might just settle in for a month or 2 before work comes into the picture.
07-01-2003, 04:45 PM #33
Easy, im back
Been crazy busy lately.... but im back bitch
let me know what happens on the move..

mastiffs are too dumb

You know i am just messing with ya, it is always good to here from you!
--Naw! I dont think I am going to get a boxer, i like them but I have been wanting for a long time a mastiff type of dog I am just not sure on what to get yet. I still have to find a breeder with a good bloodline. I know I am looking to spend at least $1,400 for the pup.
07-01-2003, 05:39 PM #35
My ex and I had A Neopolitan Mastiff awesome dog! Sucker was a beast.
07-01-2003, 08:37 PM #36
i want a doberman pinscher that is a bad ass looking dog!
i had a beagle before and she was real loving. had no energy though bad appetitie to0 ate everything in site one time she ate a full bag of hersheys kisses foil and all. When i took her to south texas i killed a deer and put all the scraps in a bowl i had to take it away from her because she wouldnt stop eating! I cried like a school girl when she died i think everyone cries when their dog dies though.
07-01-2003, 08:39 PM #37
yep!! I shed a few tears over my dogs. Nothing sux worse than loosing your best friend!!
07-13-2003, 11:49 PM #38
Hey abs. sorry it took me so long but, pet boerboels are about 1,000 and show quality are 1,500-2,000 (from a breeder in San Antonio, TX).
Like I said before, the southafrican b.b. are the best mastiffs for hot climates. I think you would really like them. Let us know what you end up getting!

I am talking to 2 different bullmastiff breeders right now but I yet to here back from them both. I will reach them again when I get to AZ
07-14-2003, 06:58 PM #40
I own american pits but if you going to go with a mastiff i would definately go with the dogue de bordeux, my friend has a bull mastiff and im not that impressed with it, all of the dogue's ive seen ive very much liked and if i were to ever get a mastiff i would definately get the dogue without a doubt.
