It's going to be a long week waiting on her decision. The family in question wants a lighter dog for the wife to go running with and the female she has is on the larger side, plus has more of a dominant attitude that she's sure I would be more comfortable with.

I had to go look it up. It's a breed I hadn't heard of. According to Wiki, it's in the mastiff family. They are a handsome dog and sound like a great companion.

Good luck, I hope you get the one you want.

Beautiful dogs, such expressive faces! What color is your girl?

What lovely dogs! Hope you get your little girl!

I'm not familiar with the breed either. The parents sound wonderful.

She's killing me. She just sent me three pics that weren't on her site, lol.
And she's the one that told me not to get my hopes up...

She is keeping one of the females for herself, the blue one I believe, and the one she might have available just happens to be brindle like my Tursa was.

I'll always have a mastiff of one type or another in the house, Andy. I love molossers.

Funny how dogs are. My Rhodesian Ridgeback right now is trying to catch a fly. And he will get it. My GSD is laying there watching him. I am hoping that when I get a new pup it picks up more from Petra than Pierce

Yes, it's so hard these days to find someone who actually does something with their dogs other than breeding them for the money.

Thanks. I'm hoping, too.
Especially because I have already thought of a probable name!
