Below is our questionnaire that we ask all perspective Mastiff owners to complete. This will do a couple of things; 1) Help us remember what each family we have talked to is looking for in a Mastiff as well as their experience, etc & 2) Help us match perspective Mastiff owners up with the best match for their situation. Please try and answer the questions as completely and honestly as possible. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to make sure that all placements and referrals are successful. Thank you for your interest and time!
