...who has the biggest one? There are two categories: weight and height. I'm just curious to see how big these dogs get!
I suppose he's pricey to feed. I get asked that a lot about him. I don't really think that he eats a lot and probably not as much as most people think...only about 6 cups a day. I knew Mastiff's were expensive before I got Uallis so I was prepared for the increased costs and knew what to expect. Everything costs more for Uallis than it does for Eddie. For example, a normal vet appointment for Eddie normally doesn't go over $100. With Uallis, I've never had a vet bill under $150. Uallis's flea meds costs more and he has to take 2 heartworm pills a month as opposed to one. Just getting a collar big enough to fit him is expensive and not to mention they are hard to find where the price isn't completely outrageous. Right now, I'm shopping for a new crate for Uallis and possibly Eddie (their crates are falling apart...) and I'm probably going to have to shell out a good bit over $200 for Uallis's alone...so yeah...they are a pretty expensive breed to have...BUT they are totally worth it! I don't think any Mastiff owner would disagree with me there!OMG! 200#!!! I know as they get older they don't eat as much but it must cost a fortune to feed him! I think I'll stick to my little 'ankle biters' thank you very much.
haha That is funny!There was a mastiff at my work who weighed 240 pounds. He was pretty over weight (at least 50 pounds), but I could not believe how big he was. He came in for allergy testing and it turned out that he is allergic to cats. I thought that was funny...
If you don't mind my asking, who is your breeder? I know a couple of GREAT people in PA that breed and I'm curious if he's one of their dogs.haha That is funny!
Otis' dad weighs 245, so I am glad Otis doesn't look like he's gonna get as big as his Daddy lol His dad is huge--massive--wrinkles and flappy skin everywhere-not fat at all--just massive. Sure hope Otis doesn't hit a VERY suprising growth Spurt
Loyal Heart out of Pittsburgh...she owned Otis' mama who died 3 days after giving birth --she has no planned breedings nor do I believe she is anymore...it killed her to lose her girl But Otis' dad I know is still breeding...maybe in a few years we'll get one of those big boysIf you don't mind my asking, who is your breeder? I know a couple of GREAT people in PA that breed and I'm curious if he's one of their dogs.
Holy s*&^!! That is a massive dog...thanks for the info!Want to know how big they get? This is Orson, who's now retired. He's one of my favorite Mastiffs and I'd LOVE to have one of his grand pups! I belive he's either 36" or 38 at the shoulder and weighs in at around 260#
I didn't realize Aslan was a mix. But I'm sorry, 160 is still a big dawg! Mine are 14 (Butch) and 19 (Roxxy); Mortimer is a big cat at 15#. Aslan is a very handsome guy. Love to see him killing cones!Alpha, Aslan isnt as heavy as the English Mastiffs,he was 154lbs at last weigh in a while back (maybe 160lbs now but i cant see him going beyond that).
He is a mix of bullmastiff and Neopolitan/american bulldog,his mum looks more like a bandogge in apperance,he is tall (not sure how i will measure him) but he will never weigh as much as say Otis or Uallis,English mastiffs are the worlds heaviest breed (i think??) Aslan maybe similar in height but the EM are heavier set than him.
Carla that pooch is MASSIVE!!!!!!!! and awesome,perhaps one day i'll get an English mastiff,after all i am English.haha
I've heard about people using it but I never really put much thought into in terms of using it for my dogs....I'll definitely look into it though. ThanksMDawn, have you though about using liquid Ivermectin? It's safe and MUCH cheaper than Heartgaurd (a $25.00 bottle is about 20 treatements for a Mastiff)
I looked at them when we were lookin into getting Otis, but they didn't have any pups at the time...I will definitely keep them in mind for my next Mastiff...whenever that may beSDO, I though he might be out of the Celestial lines, it's between her a Tamara at St Pats right now for my next mastiff baby (two years away). Though we MAY be adding a Great Dane in the next few months.
