Iâ€™m new here. Iâ€™d like to introduce myself and my mastiff, Brutus. I got Brutus in February of last year when he was only 8 weeks old. He is also the quintessential Filo in that he will allow no stranger in or around the home. I was happily surprised at how loving and what a lap dog my mastiff is! He really does try and park his butt in my lap. I truly think he is only 100% happy when heâ€™s touching me. And thatâ€™s fine by me J I really donâ€™t mind the drool, snoring or cleanup. Heâ€™s worth every bit of it and will probably be the only type of dog I own.
