Hello all, I found this site through a google search and am excited to share and discuss with the big dogs... o that was bad. We have a Great Pyrenees that my wife has owned for 7 years. We have a 4 month old baby girl. I've wanted a male English Mastiff for a good ten years now and my wife gave the green light this passed week. Sunday we went on a road trip to check out a couple breeders. I wanted a huge monster pup with non anxious parents. We settled on a backyard breeder, who didn't take the best care of her dogs, but I loved the look of the parents. And after spending and hour or so with the people dogs I confidently assess them and observant, and non anxious parents. I've seen 5-10 full grown adult Mastiffs in my life and the sire is the biggest one I've seen by far. He's an outside dog who is fed crap food and still weighed 190 at his last vet visit. He has a huge head and was crazy tall for a mastiff, and quite long. The mom was of sound build, friendly and exhausted. Anywho I guess I'm posting for reassurance. Potter was the largest of the litter (by far) and was the 2nd most outgoing of the 8. He's 11 weeks old and only weighs 29lbs. I read that a puppy should be 40lbs by now. The puppies have eaten horrible adult food (Alpo Prime Cuts) ever since their weaning. I attribute this to his lack of size and I hope he's not stunted. I've switched him to Diamond puppy large breed, but he hasn't eaten but about half a cup in a day. He's shy but is drinking and acts fine. Thanks!
