Welcome to Mountainheel Mastiffs. We have a lot of information on our website and we hope that you take the time to look through each page that we have provided. We are continuously adding and updating. You will find many questions you have can be answered on here. If you still have questions, feel free to contact us and we would be more than happy to assist you. So, lets talk about Mountainheel Mastiffs!
Here at Mountainheel Mastiffs, we are committed to breeding the AKC Mastiff standard: health, temperament, conformation, heavy bone, substance and type. The most common statement I hear from people is, "We want a big 200# Mastiff"- but Mastiff weights vary considerably! The average adult weight for a male is approximately 160-200 lbs plus, (one of my boys is 260) and the average adult weight for a female is 120-180 lbs or more. So with that said, it is a very broad range. Our Mastiffs are strictly AKC registered and we have no affiliation with any other registrations; their pedigrees are posted under their individual pages for your viewing. We are not a kennel, we are just a family who loves, enjoys and understands the needs of this unique and special breed. Our dogs were selectively chosen after doing an excessive amount of research including, but not limited to, being mentored from other breeders/friends from all across the country over several years.
Our dogs are members of our family and they live in the house with us. They have a huge fenced in area where they can run freely when they go outside. They are fed a raw diet with access to dry kibble if they choose. They are very sweet and loving dogs, and we take great pride in them. Our Mastiffs are healthy and beautiful creatures with great dispositions. They have been raised in the house with our three children whom they love and instinctively protect. These are our pets, they are not kenneled, we share our home with these giants. A Mastiff needs to be close to his family, and that Mastiff should be inside living as a member of the family, no exceptions in our opinion! Unlike other breeders who retire a female from breeding and rehome them, we believe that is Absolutely Wrong! Our dogs are our pets, if they do or don't produce a litter doesn't matter to us. They will always have a home with us.
We get so many requests and are unable to fulfill wishes of puppies because we do not have litters too often. Mastiffs are difficult breeders. C sections are the only way our babies are delivered. A lot of time, expense and effort goes into a successful breeding and raising a litter. Serious inquiries only, this breed is expensive to buy, to breed, to keep, to care for and vet bills are larger due to their size. Don't jump in and buy a Mastiff without educating yourself about the breed, they are not for everyone. I will turn any person away that I feel is not a fit for one of my pups, I have not regretted one time that I have turned anyone away.
We do health test our dogs. DNA Genetic Disease Health Tested and Cleared for PRA, DM, CMR, HU., OFA Hips/Elbows and/or PennHip and Cardiac Cleared by Licensed DMV. We have done PennHIP in the past and will be doing strictly PennHIP in the future. Its a much better evaluation than the alternative. Which leads me to The big debate. OFA and PennHip Competitors. The truth is, we can test our dogs and they can pass with flying colors, but as a Breeder, an honest Breeder, I will tell you that No Breeder can guarantee a puppy against HD or any other JD. There are a lot of other factors that influence HD-diet, exercise and early spay and neuter to name a few culprits that have a hand in becoming dysplastic. I will honestly say we have never run into any of that with our lines. Our Mastiffs are healthy and our puppies are exceptional. My dogs will be tested by OFA or by PennHip prior to breeding because that’s my responsibility, but that guarantees nothing on a litter. That goes for all breeds and all breeders. A guarantee on life, it’s impossible whether it’s Canine or Human. OFA now allows PennHip submission which I am very pleased I am able to do that as well.

The buyer agrees to feed a premium quality food. This is essential for proper growth and development of the dog. Your puppy is starting off on Purina ProPlan Large Breed Puppy formula for the correct calcium/phosphorus/protein/fat content for giant breeds. It is specifically designed for large and giant Breed puppies. Purina ProPlan Large Breed Puppy is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Nutrient Profiles for growth of large/giant size dogs. If you are going to transition to another brand, please transition over three days, changing the fractional balance of food over that period of time. I recommend that you feed a super premium food, preferably raw diet if willing to do so.
