Bullmastiff x Turkmen Alabai Hybrid = Bandogge Puppies
Lots of interest so far w/ some scheduled visits - email me if you want to get your hands on one of these special pups!
Very uniform litter with classically marked fauns and some darker male pups in the mix. All will have longer heads than their mom Pretzel, but shorter and more square than Chief's head - should be some very clean breathing dogs that can work and play all day long. All will likely weigh between 110 and 125lbs or so and stand between 27" to 30" or so to the withers.
Some of these pups have short hair like a typical Bullmastiff, while some of the others have a beautiful medium coat (some shedding to be expected) like their father Chief.
Structure and health should be premium across the board. All will obviously have above average intelligence. Temperaments will be that of calm and easily trainable and controllable family companion guardians requiring good socialization with strange people and animals and basic obedience via positive reinforcement.
Along with the Alabai blood in them, these pups have both English and Bullmastiff genetics (the old school healthy ones), which means they need to be treated like little babies for the first year. They need lots of love and cuddling along with proper training and socialization. Raising them this way will grow their confidence as they develop into the dogs expected from such a fantastic mom and dad.
We whelp and raise our litters in-house, right next to us. Each of our kids (we have five of them) is given 1-3 pups to focus on, but they certainly care and play with them all. Their pups are constantly cared for by us and their mother, Pretzel, while also getting lots of puppy naps in between. At 6 weeks we transition them to the yard w/ their mom and dad...they still come in to say hi, but they for the most part live and play out back w/ eachother and us.
Items Included: Current Vaccinations, Veterinarian Examination, Health Certificate, Travel Crate, Gave them a de-worm twice, but they were clean both times - just to prevent. Clean pups!
BLASCO'S CHIEF EMXTAF1 (1/2 English Mastiff x 1/2 Turkman Alabai) F1 HYBRID BANDOGGE Chief is a very exotic bandogge (1/2 Turkmen Alabai and 1/2 English Mastiff) and hands-down the best family guardian we've ever owned. He's very gentle around the kids and instantly rolls over and shows belly to our 2 y/o son when he walks up to give him some pets and or snacks....kids sneak him a lot of snacks btw!
BLASCO'S PRETZEL BULLMASTIFF Pretzel is a purebred Bullmastiff coming from a long line of champions directly from Germany and Russia. Dan Blasco of Blasco Family Bulldogs also sourced this family member for us

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder
1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free.
2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want?
3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted?
4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog.
5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?
6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended.
7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment?
8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications?
9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later.
10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled.
11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it?
12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy.
13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older.
14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually.
15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.
16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
