Sunspearmastiffs.com is a website that was created with the sole intention of scamming people.
This website claims to sell pets but in fact they charge you for a pet that they never deliver.
They then claim to deliver the pet using a Fraudulent Delivery company which is actually another website they set up which steals your money for charging for non existent delivery.
This is not a website review of Sunspearmastiffs.com as they do not offer a service. They are criminals.

I am interested in one of your pups
Alright!

If you are local we can set up a day for you to visit us for pick up. We appreciate person pick ups but requires a $350 deposit per puppy prior to that and then fixed a later date for you to visit us and collect your puppy. Free shipping is available as well. We ship all over USA and Canada.
How much is Mae?

We are asking for $700 for her . Mae have great temperament and lovely personality with impressive pedigree. All our puppies are 100% purebred. Mae will comes up to date on shots from a licensed Veterinarian. She is 10 weeks old presently. Parents are on site, Dad weighs 130lbs and Mom is 100lbs so Will is estimated to weigh between 100Ibs when fully gown.  She is AKC Registered, Hips, Eyes, and Heart certified. Mae is 100% domesticated and potty trained.
