Hello All!  :)
My name's Franklin, I live near Monterey, CA and I have no pets.  I WANT an English Mastiff (puppy).
Just registered today after lurking for a few weeks.  I've been searching for an English Mastiff for quite awhile now and my search has been fruitless.  I have no idea where on this board to post the following:

Hello, All!
I'm still searching for an English Mastiff puppy. Preferably fawn or apricot. There are a few rescue organizations and breeders available, but...well... the rescue I was thinking of using doesn't seem to have such a great rep and the breeders I've contacted want a WOW amount of cash. So... If you have an English Mastiff puppy that you want to just give away for FREE...I'm your man. If you have a pup for sale, we can talk prices. Thanks very much! 8)

I've got an ad or 2 on Craigslist, but its not helping too much. 

Am I the only member without a dog, btw?  Perhaps one of you lovely folks can help me remedy the situation.  ;D

I'm thinking of going through Gentle Giants Rescue of Norco (I've read the opinions/warnings)
Puppyfind (I'm a lil suspicious of them)

<sigh> :-\ ......

My apologies if I've broken a taboo or two.  Still... dog or not, I'll be sticking around just for the company and the cute pics of ALL the pets.

Take care, all

Have you considered using Petfinder?

I found some Bull Mastiff puppies (I know you were looking for an OEM.
They aren't in CA but transports can always be arranged :)

1089798- Dog:Bull Mastiff
Austin,TX 5122437091 Luis Cortez 02-15-2006
Name: Biscuit
Delete Biscuit is a great dog, he is energetic, great with my son but needs a great deal of attention. Working full time and school doesnt allow much time for association. He is a pure bread unregistered Bull Mastiff and I am asking $200 as an adoption fee for him to make sure serious families or individuals apply. He is a great guard dog, and companion and is very sweet. He needs a loving and attentive home. Please only serious inquires. 

1089439- Dog:bull Mastiff PUP
Pontiac,IL 815-674-0921 Jamie 02-14-2006
Name: Minnie
Age:10 weeks
Delete I need to find a home for my 10 week old female bull mastiff pup. She is a great friendly dog. Does well with kids and other animals. her fee is $200 and I WILL NOT SHIP HER!!!! Please email me for more info and pictures of her.

My advice is to keep an open mind (and heart).  I had my sights on a Great Pyrenees, but lo and behold I found Einstein (South Russian Ovcharka), and he's the best!

When the human is ready, the puppy will appear.

Hello and welcome!

Sorry to hear you are having a hard time finding your OEM.  I know there are a few on here, maybe they can point you in the right direction?  I know I had alot of trouble as well when I was looking for my dane.  Keep your chin up, you'll find your perfect dog.

Dont' know if you've checked out petfinder yet, but here's a few that I found you may be interested in.  It does not say what kind of mastiff they are, but here you go:





There are many more, but a bit farther away.
