|Okay, I have some names for you...
I don't know where Shelton is in relation to you, but an awesome Bullmastiff breeder I know in Olympia uses Dr. Gary Olson at Shelton Veterinary Hospital. The number there is 360-426-2616. She's had Bullmastiffs since 1982 and has had some of the top dogs in the breed, so if she reccomends them, so do I! Obviously, they are very familiar with the breed then, too.
Another friend reccomendeds Dr. Sodhi who has a clinic both in Bellevue and Lynnwood.
A friend with Dogue De Bordeauxs (who are almost as awesome as Bullmastiffs) reccomends a fantastic vet near Mill Creek, who is a Mastiff person herself. Dr. Donna Sowder is at Animal Hospital at Murphy's Corner and can be reached at 425-316-8387. These particular folks said they would never even consider bringing their Dogues to a different vet.
I hope this helps you some and not knowing Washington geography in the least, that these are all places within a reasonable drive for you. Let me know what you think!
Oh, and PS. I have a friend in Seattle (who used to own a Bullmastiff, and now has a Pit) and she told me to tell you she would volunteer to be your new puppy's trainer/puppysitter/go-to gal.
(She's in the BB group, too. You'll meet her soon. )
