Re: Rainbow bridge

I'm very sorry for your loss. I know that losing a dog feels like part your being torn out.

I'm no help when it comes to finding a mastiff breeder, but I'm sending you a big hug and my best wishes for your search of a new furry friend.

I'd check with the Old English Mastiff Club here, they should be able to help point you in the direction of good breeders - as the requirements for breeding here are quite strict, I would think that most any who are registered will have top pups.

Good luck and best wishes in your search. <3

Re: Rainbow bridge

I am so sorry your best friend has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. It is so difficult when we lose a beloved pet. My thoughts are with you and your family.

It's a poem often quoted as a comfort when someone loses a pet.
Here you go. Perfectly safe for work.

To the OP, I'm very sorry for your loss but can't help with the search I'm afraid.

Re: Rainbow bridge

Lorvig, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. What a beautiful dog he was!

I hope that memories of all the happy years you shared bring you comfort at this difficult time.


I'm afraid I don't know much about mastiffs, but I know how the loss of a beloved friend and family member leaves an unbearable gaping hole - and I understand how important it is to again have a dog to share the sofa with.

I wish you all the best in your search, and hope you find your new four footed friend soon.
