I have owned 3 American Mastiffs, they are a wonderful family dog and when trained properly are extremely loyal and eager to please. Like most giant breeds, they are not inexpensive to own....food.
keeping in mind that most vet medications are based on dog size and weight. They are not a delicate breed but do have some health issues, skin problems, digestive problems and I have had to deal with ligament problems..all that to say I would not trade my AMs for any other breed.
