Picking out a couple new dogs (lets try this again)?

Question by Piper: Picking out a couple new dogs (lets try this again)?
My boyfriend and I are looking into dogs. And we want some opinions and well known facts about the following dogs (or perhaps even suggestions on different dogs)
I will be 24 and he will be 28. We have both had dogs our entire life. We own a 4 year old labrador-english bulldog mix. He is very friendly with both humans and other dogs, and very very gentle with children. We do not currently have children but what to at some point, we are trying to find two dogs that we can have (and possibly mate). We enjoy very large dogs and are currently looking into the following breeds.
English Mastiff
American Mastiff
Bullmastiff
French Mastiff (Dogue De Bordeaux)
Italian Mastiff (Cane Corso)
Great Dane (German Mastiff)
Canis Panther (yes we realize it isnt AKC recognized, but it sure is gorgeous and you cant go wrong when he has lab in him… right?)

We want your opinion. What is good with other dogs, kids (very young ones), and would make adorable puppies (we havent decided if we want both the same breed or two different breeds, so you are more than welcome to mix and match in your answers)
We do not want a long haired dog or any terriers. We also want the go to be at least 85 lbs (bigger then our current dog)

I just got done with college and we are looking for a house with at least an acre of land.
I will be trying to find some part time work until we try and open up a shop of our own, so we will be home often when the dogs are young.
Most of the puppies, if we decide to mate them, will go to family and friends. We will not let a dog end up on the street. Do not worry, we are dog lovers :)
My boyfriend and I have done much research about the dogs, and wanted some personal opinions and perhaps even opinions from owners of these dogs… We realize alot of research must go into this.
Also, we plan on having one littler, that is it. We want to be able to experience it and that is all. Look down upon us if you may. Doesn’t bother me. We have raised and have gotten ALL of our dogs from a shelter (which together is 14 saved dogs), which is probably more then most of you have done.

I tried this earlier and got alot of either negative answers, or unneccesary suggestions. So i have added more information and hope to have a better outcome. I apologize if you are witnessing this post again.
Alright. I am getting really sick and tired of everyones nose being stuck up in the air. First off — to the guy telling me not to breed a mastiff with a small dog, where are you getting this idea of a small dog from?
Also, to whoever said do not buy a designer breed, that is a horrible thing. My current dog is technically one and i rescued him.
I can’t believe how rediculous this all is and what assumptions you people are making. All of my dogs have been spayed or neutered, so I don’t understand why you are calling me irresponsible for not following up with the shelter about that. You have no idea if any of my dogs have been spayed or neutered. And what makes you or any other breeder different from a back yard breeder? Doesn’t a breeder need to start somewhere?
I am not breeding the dogs without knowing that they have a home, I am not letting the dogs run into the wild, or sticking them in a shelter. I am not even taken money for the dogs.

Thank you BYBs sell puppies for crack (:
Love the name by the way. So true!

Your the only one who answered my question. (:

&& I’M NOT SPAYIN MY DOG. >.>
Oh wow, I never thought of that Wolfey (:

Best answer:

Answer by Tiny paws
Yea, get her SPAYED and you’ll never worry. Neuter the male as well..

I meant, spay them BOTH!

Males-neutering

* Risk of testicular cancer is eliminated and decreases chance of prostate disease
* Decreases aggressive behavior, including dog bites
* Reduces or eliminates risk of spraying and marking
* Less desire to roam and therefore less likely to be injured in fights or auto accidents
* Reduces the number of unwanted dogs and cats
* Helps the animal live a longer and healthier life

Females-spaying

* Helps the animal live longer and healthier life
* Risk of cancers-mammary gland tumors, ovarian and uterine cancer is greatly reduced
* Reduces the number of unwanted dogs and cats
* No heat cycles so males will not be attracted
* Less of a desire to roam
