I was hopping for some help on what breed my new pup is.
My wife and I rescued this little pup from a couple who was told she was an American Mastiff. They said that they just didn't think they would have the time to devote to her. She is just about 8 weeks old and weights in at 11 pounds. Thanks for any help

She looks really small for a giant breed puppy. An American Mastiff is a mix of English Mastiff and Anatolian Shepherd, but growth charts for both of those breeds show an 8-week puppy should be more like 20 lbs, not 11. She also looks much finer-boned than those breeds, with smaller ears.
I really can't say more than that, though... puppies grow and change so much, my guesses now could be totally different in a year when she's more mature. Enjoy your mystery puppy and love her for herself!
