Overview: The Mastador is a cross between a purebred Mastiff and a purebred Labrador Retriever. They are called hybrid dogs due to their origination from two different pure breeds. The Mastador is a large dog that can stand from 28 to 36 inches and weigh anywhere between 100 to 200 pounds or more. These dogs are alert, cheerful, loyal and social. They are very strong dogs that have brown, expressive eyes and strong muscular legs. These dogs are suitable for families with older children as they get excited and may knock over small children by accident. These dogs are social and get along well with other dogs and pets. They are loyal and protective of their family and make very good companion dogs. They can fit into apartment life is sufficient exercise and running opportunities are provided although they would ideally need a house with a fenced yard.

These dogs are loyal and protective of their family and will protect them if they sense a threat. The Mastadors have strong sense of smell and will follow it to its origin. On such occasions, they may not listen to their master so early obedience training is necessary. They are high energy dogs that would need physical activities to be content and happy. A daily walk with playing and running time is necessary for these dogs. These dogs make excellent pets for family and great watch/guard dogs.
Temperament: They are very good and gentle with children and make good play mates although care should be taken when they are with children as they may accidentally knock them
Care: These dogs should be taught not to jump in excitement as they may injure children or for that matter, an adult due to their size and weight. They should be leashed when going outdoor as they have a tendency to chase after small animals like rodents and squirrels and may run after them. They can also follow an interesting smell without listening to their master.
Training: These dogs are generally easy to train although they may show stubborn behavior from time to time. A firm but not harsh, and consistent training will help them train without much difficulty. Taming a dog does not need to be harsh and rude because this animal possess intellect. What this breed needs is actually a gentle and patient yet firm way in educating. The dog must also feel that the masters are the humans and that the man should decide for them. On the other end, it is also a pleasure for the dog because they feel that they have a work to do and that is to obey their masters.
Activity: These high energy dogs will need lots of physical and mental stimulation to be happy and content. An under-exercised dog may behave in undesirable way. This includes but not limited to excessive barking, chewing, growling. A daily walk or jog and playing opportunity is necessary for these dogs. What you teach to this hybrid is most likely what is being adopted. Thus, if you do not give them physical activity, then they will be lazy. It is because basically they are just waiting for the command of their masters. In this view, you need to take the dog our regularly just don't forget to put a lease on when they are sent out.

More About Mastador Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Sidda

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. To adopt please fill out an adoption application. Sidda is a 6yo female shepherd/lab mix who was surrendered by her family in Memphis because she was very anxious around their new infant. Sweet, affectionate, loving. A little timid at first with strangers but warms up quickly. Medium energy level, loves to run and play outside but settles down quickly in the house. Sidda is anxious around other dogs and isn't a big fan of cats so she needs a home with no other animals. Recommended for children 6 years and older. Crate trained and housebroken. Obeys basic commands. Loves to be with her people. Good on a leash, rides great in the car. Healthy and fully vetted, current on shots, spayed, weighs about 60 pounds. Here's a note from Sidda's owner: "Sidda is an active dog and loves to play and go on walks/runs. However, when given adequate exercise, she can also be very calm and is content to lie on her cushion or a rug near her family members. We are so sad that Sidda has not taken well to our infant son. As far as older children, she has seemed ok, but she has honestly not spent much time with them. She was put on Prozac for anxiety shortly after we brought the baby home, but our vet believes she can be weaned off the Prozac once she's in a less stressful environment.. We have always been very cautious with her around children because of her anxiety and because of her size/energy level. Sidda does not do well with other dogs or animals in general. She gets very anxious around them and views them as threatening. She becomes reactive, especially if another animal gets close to her. We worked with a trainer on this issue for a while, and finally just realized that we had to be her advocate and not put her in situations where she or other animals could get hurt. Sidda goes in her crate whenever we leave home, at night, and anytime we need to separate her for any reason. She follows this command better than any other (for her, the command is “kennel up”). Sidda knows most of the basic commands – sit, stay, down, come, shake. She knows to sit when we are getting her food out and to sit on a door mat when she comes inside so that her paws can get dry. She knows not to jump on people (though she may try to test that on someone new). She has been trained not to get on the furniture. She has been trained not to go into the back of our house, so we no longer rely on gates. She is not great on a leash (she pulls), but we have found that she does much better when using a front clip harness, and she usually does better after we have gone a little way and she has gotten more tired. Aside from the anxiety issues described elsewhere, Sidda is generally a well-behaved dog. She does sometimes bark at animals passing by the house, and she barks if she sees someone approach the house, but we do not feel that this is to the point of being problematic. She likes to eat paper, including toilet paper, which is why we have trained her not to go to the back of the house where the bathrooms and bedrooms are. An ideal adopter would be an adult/couple with no other pets, no small children, and no plans to have children or take in more pets. They also would need to be active enough and strong enough to help her get regular exercise and to hold her leash/collar when needed. They would need to understand her limitations and be willing to accommodate but they will be rewarded with the love of a very sweet dog." To adopt please fill out an adoption application.
