I have wanted a mastiff for a few months now. My dog Jack(Lab)passed and I am ready to try a new family member. Its just me and my fiance, but I want a dog that is friendly to visitors. Would an English or Bullmastiff be right for me? I'm not an extremely busy person, so I'm home most of the day. Input from anyone who has been around both breeds is appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Beautiful baby boy Mastiff who is almost 2 years.... I could have not asked for a better protector, companion, love of my life, and child that I call Taz.... Everything they said up top is VERY correct!! He is DEFINITELY very very friendly to all humans no matter what! BUT I PROMISE if you show him loyality and LOVE he will attack ANYONE that comes even anywhere close to hurting you!! He grew up around the other love of my life, my 3 year old Lab Mix, they get along and he respects him, BUT he does show aggression towards other dogs, so socialize him early...I did do this with other dogs, but he was snapped at a couple of times at the park so I think he thinks that all dogs are wanting to attack him. He's gotten better.....HE IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!! I LOVE HIM VERY MUCH! Hope this helps you or anyone else trying to decide on getting a Mastiff..1 Million Thumbs Up!

Hi. I think that you would make the perfect owner for an english mastiff. My neighbor moved and couldn't take his female and he asked us if we wanted her and we couldn't say no. It was the best thing we have ever done. We have an 11 year old and a chiuahua and she loves us all. She wants to be with us all the time and is VERY VERY smart. The more you talk to them the more they understand. Very loving, loyal, protective if anyone would try to hurt you. Wants love and will love you back always. They play but are not hyper dogs. They are low key. They will sleep with you or beside you. They think they are your kids. Can turn to be whatever they need to be. I can't say enough about this dog. I am 42 and have had a lot of different types of dogs. ridgebacks, labs, mixed, shih tzus, shepherds, huskeys, mastiffs are the best dog I have EVER seen.
