    What breed does everyone suggest? Im not working at the minute but might be going back part time. I would love a bullmastiff but reading conflicting advice about how they are with kids. Paul has really got his heart set on another bordeaux and I would love another, but couldnt go through what we went  through with benson again  :-\  :'(

    So what would make a Bordeaux any better with children that a Mastiff?
    You are looking at two breeds that have there own problems health wise also both are guarding breeds.

    i dont think that bordeauxs are any better with kids, im asking oppinions as to what you think and explaining what i have read, and when i have read up they are both apparently great with kids, but others say bullmastiffs are only tolerent of them.
      i also know they are guarding breeds, which is why i dont want another one.

    i would like a puppy ideally, i dont know of any rescues that allow to adopt with the kids  :-\
    what you got in mind nat?  ;D

    We would love a rescue if we could find the right dog. Round in manchester they dont rehome to familys with under 5s, and one of the rescues I am unsure of, they never have any information, they dont homecheck or assess the dog and as most of them are strays they have no background. Previous name was fizzigal.  ;D

    No, Claire put us in touch with her, she’s helps out a Rescue called BullieSOS and Sky was still in her previous home. The couple had split so needed to find a new home so had got in touch with the Rescue! Sky left her home the day before we got her so she didn’t need to go into kennels which was a bonus! We’re really lucky as I’m in touch with her previous owner so was able to find out lots about her history  🙂
