Names Wimble ( not really but thats my alias anyways lol) I live in Northern Ontario and have 2 "big paws" and 1 Little paws dogs.
My "big paws" are a Rottie/boxer (she's my pampered princess) mix and a border collie ( his paws arent all that big though come to think of it, but he's still the "big guy" here)
My little paw guy is an Am.Cocker (an old fella that came here as a foster but... tee hee)
I recently lost one rescue that lived with us 2 brief yet wonderful years, he was a Rottie/Shepherd mix and was most definately the biggest paws we ever had.

I was sent this link by someone as I am fishing for info on what most possibly may be my next "big paw" (Tibetan Mastiff) I stumbled across the breed quite accidentaly I must admit, and I fell in love.
My man and I are planning a trip to a breeders to look at some of them and spend some time with a few to see for sure...

Well, thats all for my intro, Im off to figure out this forum which I also must admit is unlike any other I have seen...
Hope to talk with many of you in the future.
Wimble.

Hey there Wimble,
Welcome to BPO.  You will love this group of people.  They are great, friendly and very willing to help with advice, opinions and sometimes just knowing they are there and they really care helps.  Sounds like you already have some wonderful "Paws" in your life.  We really need pics, you know.  So, you want a Tibetan Mastiff.  I have one we got through American Tibetan Mastiff rescue.  He is my dream dog.  Don't get me wrong, I love my Wolfhound and my Pyr, but Cody is the dog of my heart.  He is not a social dog, not friendly with strangers, will not take treats or biscuits from anyone other than family, etc.  He guards my house and me and is my "saint" of a dog. Which breeders are you looking at?  Who have you talked to?  Welcome to the group, you will love it here.

Max  2 Irish Wolfhound
Jake  2 Great Pyrenees
Cody   3 Tibetan Mastiff
ChiChi 1.5 Caucasian Ovcharka
John and Nicki Maine Coon cats

Hi there.  Welcome to BPO!   ;D

My name is Alex, and I've got one little and one Big Paw, both of which are in my signature.   :D  I'll have to agree with everyone else here by saying that yes, this is a great place to come to with questions, gripes, groans, brags or whatever.  ;)  Also we need pictures, we all fuel each others addictons to cute!  So...Please.  ;D
BTW I LOVE Tibetin Mastiffs they are absolutely beautiful dogs and are on the top of my list for next puppy to get.  Can't wait to hear more about your pups.  :D

You made it! Welcome! :) You'll get used to the board layout. It was a little confusing for me at first too, but now I spend most of my time here. :D

There is 2 TM breeders for Ontario listed on 'Dogs in Canada'. http://www.dogsincanada.com/Default.aspx?tabid=66&type=&breed=Tibetan%20Mastiff&ad=EukanubaGeneral
