Hey, so first post but I've lurked this site for a few months unregistered. My wife and I have been debating Rottweiler vs. English Mastiff vs. Bullmastiff vs. German Shepherd and we've finally decided for sure that the Bullmastiff is the breed for us. I'm currently in NC, but moving to MD in the next 2-3 months. We'll be looking for a solid Bullmastiff breeder to purchase a pup from. However, I don't want to buy from a puppy mill or backyard breeder. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about dog breeding to know a reputable breeder when I see one. Can anyone recommend a breeder on the Eastern Coast ? I don't mind a road trip.
