    So for years I have had a fight internally on which dog I wanted - either a French Mastiff or a TM.My neighbor across the street has had 2 of them and I just loved them and they have been good to me.So I am going to put a down payment from a breeder from here http://www.tibetan-mastiffs.net/puppies.shtml.Where did you purchase your mastiff?I'm picky because I don't want to just buy any - but want an experienced breeder who knows what they are doing? I want a black with brown Male Mastiff -soon to be called Mufasa.
     
  2. Dig the name. Can't contribute much to the conversation though my working knowledge of this breed is little - nil. Welcome to the forum though! Plenty of knowledge to be found around here. Good luck on your quest and be sure to post pics when you get your pup!

    I got a 404 page not found from that link. Very briefly: if the breeder does not put titles on their dogs and does not post or makes available health testing and pedigrees at least a couple of generations back, you are dealing with a back yard, non-ethical breeder. Period and amen. That said it's possible to get a decent-quality dog from a BYB but it is really crap-shoot. Well actually it's a crap-shoot either way but you are much more likley to get a quality dog from a breeder who cares.

    Liz_M... the link caught the next work (dang new server and losing spaces!!!)... click the link, then delete the '.Where' from the end, and it works. Unfortunately, I'm no help with TM's or breeders, either... http://www.tibetan-mastiffs.net/puppies.shtml

    I technically kind of inherited mine, but my two kids came from a breeder overseas.

    He's like a teddy bear! I don't think I'd ever put him down. Well maybe after a week or two when he starts getting too big;) lol congrats! Cannot wait to watch him grow.

    Non DDB (non Dogue de Bordeaux)-- that you decided on a Tibetan over your other choice of a Bordeaux.

    I decided to overlook that decision, also.. :) :) :)

    And we are all going to be demanding many pics of your new puppy, so be prepared, lol.

    ETA: French Mastiff = Dogue de Bordeaux.
