Goldleaf Mastiffs would like to share with you some letters
from happy customers.  We would be more than happy to
put you directly in touch with anyone for references.  
Thank you.
I do have to say that our experience in picking up Mack
was impressive! To get all that information made us feel
very confident in your dogs, and the love that they get
there. Not only were we impressed with the binder of
information that we got, but that you cared enough to give
a stuffed animal, collar and disposable camera as well,
went above and beyond to us! The camera showed that
you genuinely cared to see these dogs as they got older
and cared enough to not forget! I would definitely
recommend anyone wanting a mastiff to come to you
guys, and shall I be lucky enough to get another one, I am
glad to know that this time I will not have hours of
research to do, now I'll just get a hold of you guys!
Thanks again for everything!

Our expeirence with Goldleaf Mastiffs was a wonderful
one!  You kept us very informed.  You answered any
questions we had (even the silly ones).  We lived so far
from you and we trusted you to choose a puppy that best
fits our family and you did just that!  We LOVE Ms.
Maggie May soo much!  She is all that we were looking
for and more.  She is so smart and is already potty trained.
The packet you sent along with Ms. Maggie May was very
helpful.  When ever I would call, you would always return
my call and when ever I emailed you were prompt at
emailing me back!  We had a tough decision to make on
how to get Ms. Maggie from you to us.  You cared so
much about her that you arranged for a close friend to
bring her all the way down for us!  For that I am so
thankful.  I couldn't see shipping her all alone!  We just
went to the Vet last week and she is healthy and doing
great!  All of us can't wait until she gets her next round of
vaccinations so we can take her to the park and pet store.
We had the microchip implanted in her and she didn't like
that at all.  I felt bad for her!  She has out grown her crate
already and has taken over our laundry room.  She has
adjusted well to our home, we have our little routine down
and boy does she know it!  The kids love her and play
with her all the time.  The first night we brought her
home, she slept in her crate next to our bed and our oldest
son slept in his sleeping bag in front of her crate.  He did
that for two nights.  She never onced cried.  Thank you
Jann for this wonderful addition to our family!

Jann was terrific from the first phone call I made to her.  
She was very easy to talk to and always answered all of
my questions.  I could tell right away how much she loves
her Mastiffs and I was impressed.  She was also interested
in me and wanted to make sure I was going to give one of
the puppies a great home.  I thought it was a good sign that
she cared so much because obviously she cared about the
pups.  She said I could call anytime to see how all the
puppies were doing and I did call quite a few times.  Jann
also sent pictures of the pups via email throughtout the
eight weeks, those were always fun to see. The puppies
were six weeks old when my husband and I first went to
visit them.  Jann was very nice in accomodating us
coming.  We were going to be adopting a female and when
we got there she had separted the girls from the boys so
we could get to know them better.  She made us feel right
at home.  We sat in the pen with the pups and loved them
up.  They were all so precious.  We stayed for almost two
hours, but Jann didn't seem to mind at all.  It was so fun
seeing the pups. Two weeks later we were back to pick up
our puppy.  Jann was super organized and made everything
easy.  She went right out and brought us our baby girl,
Heidi.  Jann gave us a binder filled with information on
Mastiffs and she went through it with us.  We signed a
document and then we got our picture taken with Heidi and
we were ready to go.  We were also given Heidi's first
collar and a Mr. Snoopy stuffed toy, which she still sleeps
with.  Jann said we could always call her with any
questions we have and that was comforting to know.  She
also called us the next day to make sure everything was
going well and of course it was.  Our Heidi has been a
lovely puppy.  She is very smart and loves all the people
she meets.  Overall we couldn't be happier with our

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful experience it
was to get one of your puppies.You made everything so
easy. The love you have for your dogs showed not only in
the puppy packages, the stuffed toy and collar and the
booklet, but also in the personality of the puppy. Isolde
(Izzy) is the friendliest outgoing puppy.  She loves people,
when we go for walks she runs up to everyone she sees.
All the loving you gave them really paid off. Thank you
very much for my new best friend.

Hi Jann,
We are SO in love with our girl!  Iphigenia is doing great -
40+ lbs and  a very busy girl.  She has been a dream - we
could not have asked for better.  At first, my husband
thought that I was a little silly for insisting on going to a
reputable breeder when we could have easily gotten a
mastiff for less money.  He has since changed his tune
and said many times that the extra cost was very well
worth it for the peace of mind that we have gotten.  Your
responsiveness to our concerns was great and always
prompt.  Her health is great, she learns quickly, and best
of all is her temperment; she is joyful, enthusiastic, VERY
affectionate and TONS of fun.  She started puppy class a
couple of weeks ago and is the star.  She puts up with
EVERY silly thing that I want to do, whether it is dressing
her (see attached photo), bathing and brushing her,
clipping her nails (thanks again for helping me with the
first one), or making her do 'Dumbo Ears'.  We're not
ready for another yet, but I know that when we are, we
will be calling you.  Please feel free to use all of part of
this, and please feel free to have others contact me as a
Thanks so much,
Our experience at Goldleaf Mastiffs was
WONDERFUL!!! We live eight hours away from Jann
and Goldleaf Mastiffs, but with Jann’s help it never
felt that far. Jann was always there to answer my
questions, no matter how stupid they were, and would
always answer my emails promptly. With Jann’s help
I was able to see pictures of the puppies as they grew and
I fell in love with Emma at first sight.   When it was time
to pick her up my children and I decided to make the
drive to Ukiah instead of having her shipped. My three-
year-old daughter had so much fun that she always asks
me when will we go back and see Jann. Jann was great at
working out the best time for us to pick up Emma. She
made all of us feel welcomed in her home, so welcomed
in fact that we spent hours there just visiting. Jann was
very informative and I was able to learn a lot. You can tell
how much she loves her mastiffs and all of the puppies. I
always felt confident in my purchase and would
recommend anyone to Goldleaf Mastiffs.   Thank you
Jann for all of your help and for our new addition to the
family. We all love our “Emma Girl�

Annie is 3 months old - WOW has she grown.  All I can
tell you is that she has changed our lives in such an
amazing way.  She is so exceptionally bright and anxious
to learn.  Bret has taught her to sit, stay and fetch... and
she loves her squeeze toy of the mailman!  She has found
her voice and when she is ready to play or has something
to share she definately does so.  Jann, we both want to
thank you for all the great advice you gave us when we
picked her up and you have continuously been there
since.  If we decided to get a sister or brother for Annie
you will be the first one we call.

Hi Bob and Jann,

Here is a recent pic of Mo and me.  I guess you can see
how much we adore each other!!  I think I am well on
my way to overbonding with another mastiff!  But I
cannot think of anything else I would rather be guilty of.  
I want to thank you both so much for considering me as
one of your Goldleaf puppy parents.  Mighty Mo,
appropriately named after a rugged Tonka toy truck my
boys once had, is a welcome addition to our family.  His
new "brothers" and "sisters" just love him too.

Hi Jann
We would like to thank you for our beautiful Zoie 101.
She is almost 5 months old now and getting bigger
everyday. She is a wonderful dog with a great
personality. As you know we are Labrador Retriever
breeders and we have 5 great dogs that love to swim,
play with our kids and just hang out. They weren't sure
about Zoie at first, she did not look like them and did not
like the water at first. As she got older they took her in
and now she thinks she is a Lab. She loves the pool and
loves to run around our property. The picture I've sent is
Zoie sitting on the step cooling off. We would like to
thank you for a great new addition to our family. She is
very healthy, well behaved and she potty trained herself.
I will send pictures as she grows up. Keep in touch.

Dear Jann:
Thank you so much for helping us find the
perfect mastiff for our family. Your website
offered many opportunities for us to learn more
about the mastiff, how to choose a pup and a
breeder.  It was so exciting to correspond with
you while Skye was still pregnant and then like
eager parents to be, we found out when the pups
were born and began getting to know them.  You
answered so many of my questions from
breeding to feeding.  Thank you so much.  We
are thrilled with our Goldleaf's Sir Galahad
"Monty." He has succeeded his first week home
in winning over our Chihauhas (and that's not
easy to do) along with the labradors. It is really
amazing how smart he is at such a young age,
given he is still learning how to navigate his own
body :-).  He has a total mastiff personality and
we LOVE it!!  He is not shy nor aggressive. He
sits back and watches a bit and then plays. He's
learned how to be soft with the Chi's and not
chew on our fingers - in just a few days!  We
cannot wait to take him out and about when he's
had all his shots.  We love him and he is our
dream come true.  We look forward to seeing
you at shows and building our relationship.  This
has truly been the beginning of an awesome
experience.  Thank you!

Hi Bob -

I just wanted to give you an update on
Booyah.  Well, we've had a very emotional
week.  Every test or procedure they gave her
(blood, oral scope, biopsy) came back
negative.  She hasn't been able to keep any
food or water down the entire week and was
constantly throwing up green bile.  After
walking into the emergency clinic yesterday
and finding her laying in a pile of green bile
we about lost it.  The internal specialist was
convinced that she had no blockage and
wanted to put her on a massive dose of
steroids for 48 hours and reevaluate her then.

At that point Bob, she was going down hill
fast and didn't know if she could make it
another 48 hours.  So we immediately
decided we needed a second opinion.  So we
discharged her and took her to another
internal specialist.  After feeling her stomach
for about 10 minutes, he could feel
something hard in her intestines and Booyah
gave him the look that she didn't like it.  He
decided that she needed immediate surgery
that evening.  We got a call from the Dr.
right before she went under and he said he
did another ultrasound and could see the
foreign body.

Her surgery went well and found out that
she had a Kong (little rubber toy) in her
lower intestine.  It all makes sense now
because she got sick last Wednesday night
and she spent that day at a dog camp near
our house.  She must have eaten it there,
since we don't have any small toys at our
house.  No more dog camp for her!!!!
Needless to say, we are so relieved and just keeping our fingers
crossed that she has no problem with her recovery.  She still a
little hesitant to eat but don't really blame her since every time
they tried to feed or water her, she threw up.

We can't thank you enough for calling us back this week!  We
were so worried and scared that we might lose our girl and
hearing your opinions really helped.  I got a little choked up
when you asked me if she's been a good dog.  I can't tell how
sweet, loving and what a well-behaved dog she is.  We love her
so much and anyone who meets her instantly falls in love.  I
can't tell you how hard it would have been on us if something
would have happened, especially with her only being 1 1/2
years old.

I just wanted to give you an update and thank you again for
calling us!

Hi Bob & Jann,
Heather and I just love Max.  He has melded
right into our family and it is hard to imagine
a time when he wasn't around.  He is very
caring and careful with our daughter, she to
has fallen in love with our big man.  Max is
only 7 1/2 months old and is already over
150#'s!  I can't believe how big he has gotten
and how fast.  We took him to a dog park a
couple of days ago, and he was head and
shoulders above the other dogs.  People will
walk all the way accross the park just to
meet him.  He is always happy to sit for all
the attention that comes his way.  He is at the
head of the class in his dog training, and
picks up commands quickly regardless of
distrations.  Thank you very much for such a
great dog.  His Dad is Hoss, and I can only
guess that he too is going to be a giant boy!

Attached is a Picture of our Daughter Holly
and her Puppy Max.  In this pic Holly is 9
Months and Max is 6 1/2.

Thanks again,
Tim and Heather
