At first I saw no mastiff but looking at the body could be a smaller mastiff like a bull. But cute is what your dog is. But whatever if he is these breeds all I can say is super socialize your dog.

What a cutie-pie. From coat colour alone there could be some Labrador Retriever in the mix. Yellow (the correct name for the colour) Labs can be from so light as to be almost white to a gorgeous dark red colour called fox red, which is confusingly still a yellow Lab.

http://www.littleriverlabs.com/foxred.htm You can see some stunning fox red Labs here. Look at Tobasco. This is not a common colour.

Lots of other breeds have really red coats too, but his body type is sort of close to a Lab.

I too can see Staffie in his face,he has kind of a strong chunky body,but that could be because he's a puppy,but possibly a Mastiff.
To be honest,he looks like a Staffie/Lab mix so far,whatever he is,he is a cutie for sure

DW and I see a pittie-lab X more than a staffie...staffs usually have much wider and shorter faces than that...but the eyes and the ears and the general shape of the head is awfully suggestive of a bully breed of some kind. Either way, awfully cute!!!
