The best way to get a healthy, happy, quality Mastiff puppy is to purchase one directly from a reputable breeder. Reputable breeders put the welfare of their dogs and the improvement of the breed above their desire for financial gain. Reputable breeders will take back or replace a puppy who is found to have a congenital defect.
The Mastiff Club of America offers its members an opportunity to be listed on the clubs Breeder Referral program for a monetary donation to the club. These members are members in good standing with the MCOA and whom adhere to the clubs Code of Ethics. Though it is the recommendation of the club for all Mastiff breeders to health screen their Mastiffs, the club does not have the ability to mandate each of its members. So it is the advise of the club to all potential buyers to screen your breeder before purchasing a puppy.
