Hi! from Wa state

So... I bought a new truck (new to me, anyways) with a powerstoke in it. I came here looking for good info, and lo and behold, I became a member.

My truck info is in my sig. but I forgot about the security device... Two dogs, one large by huge, and one destined to be even bigger (friendly as hell, actually). The grown one is a Great dane/mastiff mix (female, about 160#). The little guy is an 11-week-old English Mastiff (male, about 45# last I checked)

We'll, Junior's (my male) already past his daddy's growth curve. Daddy's about 185-190. Mastiffs don't really hit full size til 3 years old on up, so it's really hard to tell how big he'll end up (200# is my estimate). BUT, I will say this. He's a great dog! Really laid back and mellow, and great with kids.

Thats what I have heard. I have also heard even though they are laid back, they make great watch dogs. I am also in a town house right now. I have also heard that even though they are big dogs, they do well in these type of homes. I cant wait. We found a breeder close by, avg cost from them is $1200. Not sure if that is good or not, but I figured it was pretty close.

$1200 was what I paid for mine. You'll have a hard time beating that for a price from a reputable breeder (I like small breeders that do it part-time myself). They love to protect their master and property. Their size allows them to do that in a very non-aggressive way (pinning and growling, as opposed to biting). Another thing I've seen from quite a few sources. They're great NATURAL watch dogs. Training only ruins them (makes them too agressive). They do well in smaller homes because their activity level isn't real high. They'd rather lay on the couch and put their head in your lap than take a long walk. They let you know when they need exercise. Then, a walk around the block and a little play time... they're good to go. You're sold... only needin a little push
