    Yeah...I'm kind of wondering what the heck you are asking OUR advice for if you have all of this experience? Good luck on this one.

    My bf has a French Mastiff and he is a wonderful dog. He lives in an apartment with him. The dog is not at all vocal and does not mind just laying around. That does not mean he doesnt like a good romp in the park every now and then. Most days he is quite happy with a few walks. He's great with people, dogs and kids. Hes very quite and if there is commotion in the hallway he will let out a low rumble but nothing a quick quite cant stop.

    Now with this being said my bf's friend also has a french Mastiff (from the same litter) and she is high strung and barks alot and extreamly energetic (this is partly due to her lack of exercise she gets)

    I really dont know much about the French Mastiff so I dont know to what extreame the dog should be. I just know that his dog is fabulous as an aprtment dog and is just one option to atleast look more into.

    I humbly apologize for my insane assumptions about your disability. I have no idea why I spouted out such crazy crap. I must have pulled it out of my arse. :rolleyes: I just tend to assume when one can't stand for an exercise class that one can't stand long enough for exercising a dog or a dog-training class, the latter tends to employ the most standing. Clearly, I am wrong.

    (I didn't read that whole post, but from what I did read...)

    Congratulations on your experience with dogs, the previous ones you have trained, and your intellect. With your impressive record I hope you don't need to come to a forum to ask for advice, as One Such As You would certainly know everything there is to know. I cannot possibly imagine your need to consort with such insignificant people as ourselves, and I am humbled that you graced us with your presence and humored our ignorant advice and banal suggestions.

    HAHAHA Noludoru! :hail: I stopped posting when the OP didn't seem to be getting it. Sigh. I am surprised the OP needed our opinion at all :D

    Oh yes..Guns kill more ppl, . The american public owns a lot more guns than guardian dogs, so really its not surprising that guns kill more often (or maim and injure)

    Very strange that this dog must be a Purebred, retired champion,AND have a lifetime health warranty?

    What does the retired champion have to do with protection ability?

    ANd where do you find a dog with a lifetime health warranty? Are you serious?
    What breeder pays vet bills for life?

    ETA: And now I see that this was all a waste of time...What the hell was the OP doing here if they have already gained the sage wisdom needed to own a "retired champion, purebred, protection dog that will selectively attack humans"....geez.
