    Yes he is!! I can’t believe how big he is already. I was worried he was growing too fast but seems like compared to other English Mastiffs he’s doing good. He’s now eating 3500-4000 calories a day depending how much food he finishes.

    He gets in 2000mg of glucosamine a day and 900mg of Chondroitin per day.

    Thank you!! I hope you love the updates as much as I love sharing him with you.

    I love his black face as well!! He looks so cute and tough at the same time.

    Update on Bayne for everyone;

    Bayne turned 4 months old today!! Wooo!

    He weighs 86lbs and stands 24 inches at the shoulder.
    He gains over a pound a day.
    He’s very smart if I could post a video I would. He is good with Come, Sit, Down, Stay, Go. All basic control commands although without a treat he doesn’t always listen hahaha.
    He loves people so much. Loves to be petted. Although people are becoming more scared of him as he is getting bigger.
    Pretty much always gets his 4000cal in per day now.
    Playtime around the yard and short walks to build his little muscles. Otherwise he just sleeps all day everyday.

    Thank you!!

    he’s very big for 4 month old pup! I wonder how big this little guy is going to get.
    He makes me wonder if he’s going to be one of those XL ones that are 300lbs!
    I look at those weight charts and it says a male mastiff is around 60 lbs at 4 months yet my guy is about 90!!
    hope you guys enjoy the photos as much as I enjoy sharing him :)

    Do you guys think he’s okay in size? Any idea why he’s so big?
    this is my first Mastiff although I’ve been researching this breed for probably 5 years or more. I weighted him today, he’s already 90lbs. He just turned 4 months old. He looks pretty lean too when he walks around you can see his stomach suck in and he’s lean all around the ribs.

    I wouldn‘t worry about it. He looks really great and healthy in the pictures. They grow at varying rates. Some go through most of the growth in the first couple of years, while others grow over longer periods (in weight). Regardless, he is probably going to be big (based on current size, his parents, and bone structure). As long as he‘s getting proper/appropriate food, I wouldn‘t worry about him growing too fast. It‘s all genetically predetermined anyway. I personally don‘t think he‘s going to be 300lbs, which I think is a good thing. Lean is good. You guys are doing a good job. Keep the pictures coming.

    Thank you!! I think he looks good as well but I’m only one person. Many people can’t believe how heavy he is at his age. Even this one other Mastiff owner I ran into.
    I do tent to see on here some grow slow some grow fast but all seem to end up around the same goal. Some are smaller than others though.
    He definitely comes from BIG lines. His arm bones are thicker than mine. His elbow , thicker than mine. It’s crazy. I believe they said their average male is 235-265 and they’ve had ones top 300.
    I know his dad is a lean 240 and standing (I think) 34 inches tall.

    thank you for your input though it’s nice to get someone’s opinion on him. He eats nice and slow throughout the day. Just nibble on his food. He’s not a big eater for one sitting.
    Yesterday he did have a new “day best” he ate all his food by 4:30 so I gave him some more. Ended up totalling around 4500Cal for the day. But usually he eats “only” 4100cal.

    I’ll make sure to take more photos! Seems like you guys love the photos, and I love sharing him!

    Here’s a photo of Bayne I took yesterday. He actually sat nice for a photo haha. He’s usually stuck to me like velcro.

    He’s 4 months , 19 weeks to be specific. Weight around 100lbs now. 25 inches at the shoulder.

    He has some days he likes to eat more. He’s a very slow eater. Starts around 5am when he gets up and will finish around bedtime at 10pm. Average feeding is 4100cal but he’s gone up to 4900cal but those are far and few.

    He’s pretty energetic. If I take him outside he will play lots. He loves playing fetch in the house with his squeaker ball. He only has to run 20 feet maybe across the living room into the kitchen so I don’t mind doing that a bit.

    He has an incredibly deep WOOF to him though. And oh boy the drool and slobber. Consistently wiping his mouth and my pants!

    A really beautiful pup, lot of weight gain per day .. I saw the joint supplements, why's that, in hopes of enhancing puppy joint formation to support the fast growth ?

    Thank you! He is pretty cute :)

    Thank you! I love the look he has. True Old English Mastiff look.
    He gains a lot of weight per day. Most I’ve saw from him I believe was near 2 lbs a day.

    The supplements aid in a couple ways. It does help with the joint health overall and aids in the growth of the joints. Also would help with any growing pains the pup might have from growing so fast. Would help keep any potential joint inflammation down. It’s always great to start a pup young on these vitamins for overall longevity of their joints and that’s the main reason. Rather than starting him when his joints are sore , and let’s say get another 2 years out of him. start from a really young age and get another 4/5 years of old age thats pain free.

    Update on Bayne;

    Bayne turned 5 months old last week on the 22nd!! How exciting. He is growing like a weed.
    Bayne stands around 28 inches at the shoulder and around 29 in his rear end. Hard to measure by yourself he thinks you’re playing.

    Weight is going up steady as well as he now is around 115-120lbs!
    Can’t believe how big he is and he’s only 5 months old.
    His guard dog instincts are kicking in more now. He’s becoming more alert and if he hears something he stands facing the door waiting for the intruder.
    He is in the mix of getting his winter coat right now so he is shedding a ton.
    I took him for a walk last week and it was -13C/8.7F and -19C/-2.2F with the wind and he went on an hour walk with me and loved it. He loves the cool weather.

    I will be posting photos of him shortly :)

    Hope you all enjoy the update!
