AKC:  Eyes - set wide apart, medium in size, never too prominent. Expression alert but kindly. Color of eyes brown, the darker the better, and showing no haw. Light eyes or a predatory expression is undesirable.

 

OEM:  EYES
Small, wide apart, divided by at least space of two eyes. Stop between eyes well marked but not too abrupt. Colour hazel brown, darker the better, showing no haw.

Define small/medium????   Is it the size of a dime, nickel, or quarter?

 

 

"Divided by at least space of two eyes".....what does that specifically mean?  Two small eyes side by side?

For what it's worth, you're not alone!

 

I've seen much too much of that, in many mastiffs at present.

 

In the past, there were more pressing issues at hand and as a result, "minor" faults were not addressed.

 

It's time we begin to focus on some of the tweeking that needs to be done and the elimination of haw is a good place to start!

Light colored eyes come from the Dogue de bordeaux and other dogs used with genetically lighter eyes.
