|Is she a pup or an adult?
If she is a pup, she needs to be on a large breed puppy food for controlled growth. Mastiffs are prone to a lot of growth disorders caused by calcium, and large breed puppy foods formulate their foods with the appropriate amount of calcium to control growth. Also, large breed puppy foods contain DHA which is good for brain development, and are also important because they have higher nutrient levels. These big guys grow very big over a long period of time, so they need the extra nutrients in a large breed kibble. Most suggest using a large breed puppy kibble up to 18 mos or even 2 years of age!
If she is an adult, there are lots of options out there for you!
Since they just got her, however, the not eating may just be a stress reaction and will change once she settles in. Some great foods to look into are Orijen, Innova (NOT Evo if she is a pup), Natures Variety, Natural Balance, Blue Buffalo, By Nature, Solid Gold (Wolfcub if she is a pup; wolfking if adult), etc.
