Here is one of the pups in the litter of English Mastiff's. We are getting ours when they turn 8 weeks old. Just wondering if anyone has this breed dog?

I have a 2.5 year old named Buddy. Prior to owning Buddy I had a Neapolitan Mastiff. You are now getting the absolute best breed of dog the Mastiff.

We were told to feed the pup Eagle pack lamb and Rice Adult food. What do you think about Eagle Pack puppy for large breeds, they have the same percents as the adult. Dont want our little girl to have 2nd best. :D

I feed my adult dog Eagle Pack, as well as my cats. They all love it and it is one of the better brands of food out there. I know mona_b also feeds her 2 big dogs EAgle Pack.

When you get your puppy at 8 weeks, you will feed it puppy food right?? Eagle pack makes a large breed puppy food (yellow bag I believe). He is adorable though!!! Good luck!!!

I will keep yu posted when we get the pup. I would really love to have someone to talk to about this breed. Of course the breeders are great, but can only bother them so much without being a pest.haha ;) The pics are of the two little girls we will be picking from. Have you tried the Eagle Pack Puppy food for large breed pups? I know I have to be careful they dont grow to fast.

I haven't personally tried the puppy food from Eagle Pack, we got our dog from the pound as an adult...he is about 2. I'm sure it is as good, if not better than the adult food. Talk to a good pet supplier that sells it!! :D

It sometimes is not recommended to feed puppy food to giant breeds, because you don't want growth too quickly.

I would do what the breeder says to do.
