    New puppy to be.

    This is our English Mastiff that will be coming home with us in about 5 weeks. Yes, before we were going to purchase a Tosa Mastiff, but the timing was off and with a little more thought we believed that it really wasn't the right dog for us. This pup here is wonderful with children, other pets and people that it knows. It is a little male and comes from a father who is 220 lbs and a mother who is 150 lbs. Do you have any name suggestions? I like names that are short, strong, possibly foreign, mythical, or from a historic figure.

    These are my kids...Sophie 6yrs and Eric 8yrs.

    Just a qiuck look and I found a couple:

    Ares - Greek God of War.
    Zeus - Ruler of all Greek Gods. God of the light and the Sky.
    Giobhniu - Celtic God of Weaponary.
    Bel - Irish Celtic God of Fire and Sun.
    Bran - Irish Celtic God of Health.

    There's a whole bunch of websites with Mythical names. Here's Two.

    Thanx Mike, I'm going to check out those sites. Zeus is the puppy's father's name. One name you suggested I think I would have a tough time with when yelling at the dog for eating my steak off the table. They are counter surfers!!! :biglaugh2

    I don't think the dogs were 220 lbs and 150 lbs, unless they're part horse ... If that's possible, your dogs food bill will be equal to your grocery bill ... What a cute little puppy dog tho! His nails looks sharp! :biggrinbo

    You are absolutely right, these dogs eat around 8 cups of food a day. They take longer to reach their full-grown weight. I've seen a couple of these Mastiffs in the states reaching weights of 268 lbs. (Which I did not think was possible, scary!) Apparently they enjoy being lap dogs...OMG, as long as it isn't his full weight in my lap we will be ok. :errr:

    Ya they get huge.
    My sister has a french mastiff (Dozer) and hes a big suck and weighs about 150 now and hes only 2 yrs but great with kids as he lets them lay on him and pull his ears and tail and not even bat an eye. He's the lil one but not any more lol

    You mentioned that Mastiff's tend to take food of the counter...my dog used to as well until I took 4 pepsi cans (empty) tied long strings, one end attach to the can, the other attached to a piece of pizza and placed it on the counter, then waked away...my dog took the pizza and a few seconds later the 4 can fell making a loud noise...this scared the socks of my dog...and that was the end of her taking food off the counters. I'm not sure if you thinks that too harsh but it worked for me.
