CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!
You've decided that you would like to own a Goldleaf Mastiff Puppy.  You probably have a lot of
questions before you purchase your puppy, so we will try out best to answer them.  Listed below
are some of the most frequently asked questions that are asked of us.  If you find that you need
further information, please e-mail us with your specific questions and concerns and we will be
happy to contact you.
What type of environment will I need to provide?

Mastiffs need people!!  They should never be chained to a post or kept confined to a small area
for an extended period of time.  Socializing your puppy is extremely important so you must be
prepared to devote a lot of time to your new puppy and continue with this commitment for its
entire life.  Goldleaf Mastiffs believes that a Mastiff should be treated as an important member
of the family.  They should have a large fenced area so they can get plenty of exercise (a nice
bed to sleep on inside the house with the family isn't a bad idea either).
What do I feed my Mastiff and how much will he eat?

Adult Mastiff's eat approximately 4 to 5 cups of dog food per day.  You will need to feed your
puppy a large breed puppy food for the first year so that his growth stays under control.  This
is very important for the bone development of your puppy.  Puppies that grow too fast can
development many problems early on and later in life.  Goldleaf Kennels will be happy to
suggest types of foods for you to use.
My decision has been made - I WANT A MASTIFF!!

The best thing to do at this point is to fill out our
Request Information on a Puppy form.   Please
make sure to fill in all fields so we are able to reach you.  We will then contact you to let you
know when we will be havivng puppies.  We never take deposits for puppies until we know that
the little bundles will be arriving, so please check our website often.  If we are not planning
puppies in the near future, we will sometimes forward your request on to other responsible
breeders that may be able to help you.

Goldleaf Mastiffs reserves the right to refuse the sale of a puppy at any time.
How do I decide which puppy from the litter is best for my home?

Goldleaf Mastiffs always does its best to match a puppy with the right family.  After a few
e-mails and telephone conversations, the breeder will get a feel for the type of home you will
provide.  He will then be able to suggest an appropriate puppy for your family.  We can also
keep you updated with digital photos of your new puppy so you can see their development and
create the bond that is so very important for your family and puppy.
What types of temperaments to Mastiffs have?

It is the top priority of Goldleaf Mastiffs to produce dogs with excellent temperaments.  Although
all of the dogs are good natured, there are still many different personalities.  Some may be shy,
some submissive, and some with a much higher energy level.  A loving home to your puppy is
very important in the success of having a well-rounded dog.
How do I know what to look for in a puppy?

All dogs have a "breed standard" that is listed with the Americal Kennel Club.  The best way to
find what you're looking for is to visit their site at
AKC.org. You will also find alot of other
useful information on this page.
I still have questions.  How can I contact you?
