What breed? My puppies are about 9 months old now, but not quite as large as yours.

Hi Gail;
Dad is 100% mastiff, mom was 1/2 mastiff 1/2 Great Pyrenees .
So Molly is 3/4 Mastiff & 1/4 Pyrenees.  Hopefully she will have some Pyrenees traits, like lighter weight and not as much of a wet mouth.
We will see. She is an awesome dog already! Super smart, although always testing how much she can get away with ... Just like a child.
We love her! She is our first guard dog rather than a retriever or a herding dog.   Very different ... we really like it.

These are my puppies when they were about 8 months old.



This is their Dad (1/2 Great Pyrenees 1/4 Border Collie 1/4 Australian Cattle Dog aka heeler) and Mom (1/2 Great Pyrenees 1/2 Australian Shepherd).



They naturally herd and guard the ducks which is what I want them to do once they settle down a little and I get them trained.
