I saw this website when I googled raw feeding for mastiffs.  One of the htmls came back with a breeder who has drooless mastiffs guaranteed.  So I went to it and they refer to their dogs as Maso Mastiffs.  Not that I am interested in a drooless mastiff (I think that is part of their charm).  But can anyone shine some light on this topic?

I just looked into it further, and it is a cane corso mixed with a mastiff. There is little to no drool

Molly, my Giant Maso Mastiff is 75% Old English & 25% Cane Corso

"Molly, my Giant Maso Mastiff is 75% Old English & 25% Cane Corso. I took this picture and the reason I chose it is because this is what she does all day long (lays around). She has a very gentle and easy-going temperament. She loves people and all animals. At the time of the picture, she was 15 months old and weighed approximately 100 pounds. At 25 months old she weighed 147 pounds. Molly loves attention. She loves to cuddle (but she thinks she is a lap dog) and she tries to lay right on you. As you can imagine, she is very heavy – only her head really fits on the lap. Since she cannot actually fit on anyone’s lap, she lays down on their legs and feet instead. Molly does not like to be sprayed by the water hose. She also does not like to be weighed, it is very difficult to get her on the scale. Molly is a very happy dog. Her tail is always wagging. She is especially good with elderly people and small children. She very rarely barks or growls, but if she does, then she is not happy about someone/or something."

Giant Maso Mastiff look like very shiny coated Old English Mastiffs, that come in a wider variety of colors, including fawns, grays, gray brindle, solid black, brindles, reverse brindles and apricot.

Temperament

Giant Maso Mastiffs are said to have the great size and lovable, gentle, disposition of the Old English Mastiff, with better maternal instincts, higher intelligence, and more muscle and the protective instincts of the Cane Corso. A gentle giant, self-confident, watchful, and patient dog who is gentle-natured towards his family. Intelligent and dignified. It rarely barks, but it is in its nature to defend its territory and family. Calm, steady and docile. Good natured, but very large and heavy. Responds well to gentle, patient training. This breed loves to please and needs lots of companionship. Lives to please their owners. Usually gets along well with other dogs. Good guard dog Protection training is unnecessary for this naturally protective breed. Loves his family and does not care to be home alone all day long. Fairly easy to train. They love children. Masos have little to no drooling.

Height, Weight

Height: Dogs from 30 inches (76cm)          Bitches from 27 inches (69cm)
Weight: Males 175-200 pounds  (80-90 kg.) Females 130-150 pounds (60-60.9 kg.)

Health Problems

-

Living Conditions

The Maso Mastiff will do okay in an apartment if it is sufficiently exercised. They are relatively inactive indoors and a small yard will do.

Exercise

Mastiffs are inclined to be lazy but they will keep fitter and happier if given regular exercise. Like all dogs, this Mastiff should be taken on daily regular walks to help release it's mental and physical energy. It's in a dogs nature to walk. They should always be leashed in public.

Life Expectancy

-

Grooming

The smooth, short-haired coat is easy to groom. Brush with a firm bristle brush and wipe over with a piece of toweling or chamois for a gleaming finish. Bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. This breed is an average shedder.

Origin

The Giant Maso is a new developing breed, not a hybrid dog. Masos were started around 2001 and still has several years before they are complete. The lines consisted of Old English Mastiff and Cane Corso Italiano The founder does state they are not a 50% to 50% hybrid, it is 75% - 85% Old English Mastiff. The goal is to create a mastiff that will be healthier, more athletic and live a longer life.

I will put up with the drool from a full blooded mastiff

In all my research I have not found a dry mouth mastiff.  Sorry

(some are drier than others but still there is drool)

I am not sure I would like that combination myself.  There have been a few of those mixes in rescue that have worked and some that have not.

Do your research  you will be amazed at what is out there.

After looking on the website more it seems the breeders of these dogs are trying to have an edge.  They also state that they "are still developing the breed" so all puppies are sold as pets only with a spay/neuter contract.  I would not pay $1500 for a breed of dog that was still being developed.  I could find a developing breed- I mean mix/mutt-at the shelter.

People who breed these mutts are just out for the money.  It is very disturbing.

I am with you...If I wanted a mixed breed, I would find a loving pet in need at the shelter.

i looked at epiphany before getting titan, and i never and still don't see those dogs on there...perhaps i am mistaken though.

It is absolutly horrible what people are doing to dogs these days.  I know everyone has there own opinion, although....these dogs depend on us...and people are thinking disposable. It is a shame.  We ended up with a belgian malinios because her owner boarded her with us and said that he doesn't want her any more and to have her euthanized!!! So we know have her too!

The AKC reconizes so many breeds with all types of temperments we do not need more breeds developed. If you you want a mix there are plenty of good dogs to go around.

Ok, the woman who created that "designer"  lives out in virginia, she has been working on her little giant maso for about 10 years and according to her in other documents shes not finished establishing her "new breed".  SHe also has created another designer known as he mastdoodle. WHich is 1/2  english mastiff and 1/2 standard black poodle.  They look like curly coated newfoundlands. Its RIDICULOUS!!  Shes been breeding I think for like 15-18 years...
