Pacific Northwest Mastiff Fanciers
Dedicated to the betterment of the breed since 1986!

About Us

The Pacific Northwest Mastiff Fanciers (PNMF), was organized in 1986 by just a handful of mastiff lovers. Their main goal was to come together for the betterment of the breed and to serve as an educational connection for those in search of information about the English Mastiff. Although the club has grown, the goals have remained the same. The PNMF has sponsored three National (MCOA) Specialties (1988, 1994 & 2002). The club supports an entry of mastiffs at a yearly show and has had an annual Fun Match since 1986. The PNMF membership is primarily located in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho but also has members from other states as well as Canada. The club's rescue service was established in 1987. It has been very successful in the rescue and placement of many mastiffs, thanks to the dedication of many volunteers. The strength of the club has been based on the hard work, dedication and generosity of its members throughout the years.


The Mastiff is not the right breed for every person and home. Our Education Committee will help provide information to the public that will enable them to decide if the Mastiff is a good fit for them. We also help those that already own Mastiffs and may need help with things such as: finding a good obedience class that is familiar with the needs of Mastiffs, a Mastiff friendly veterinarian, supplies for the giant breed dogs, etc. Our goal in providing these services is to reduce the number of Mastiffs that find their way into Rescue.
The mission of PNMF Rescue is to provide an opportunity for Mastiffs in need and their current owners the necessary resources to ensure the dogs can remain in or be re-homed to safe, healthy and loving permanent homes.
