Please email Resolute Mastiffs with your responses to these questions. Feel free to add anything not covered here. (You can copy the text below, paste it into your email program, and type your answers right there). You may find some of the questions somewhat personal, but you must realize that our aim is to find the right puppy for each buyer, and that the welfare of the pup for its entire life is our prime concern.
