Breeding Policy

Mastiff Puppies

Our MISSION is to improve the breed and to never do anything knowingly that will create or pass on an undesirable characteristic or trait. We believe in the integrity of the breed and try to emulate the “Standards” as set forth by the “AKC” & the “Mastiff Club of America’s” (MCOA) Code of Ethics.

All our dogs are OFA tested. We strive for a sound dog that moves really well, without defects, and has an EXCELLENT temperament.

CAUTION: A Mastiff is at least a 10 year commitment. Although very sweet, they are huge dogs. Think long and hard before you buy this breed. For the breed’s sake, make sure you are prepared to make and keep this commitment.

If this dog is used for breeding, it shall be bred with care only to a registered Mastiff, and only in such a manner to improve the breed as a whole.

It is further agreed that, if at any time this dog is to be sold, given away, destroyed, or otherwise disposed of for any reason, the buyer shall notify the seller before taking action, and the seller shall have first option to repossess said dog or to make any other appropriate arrangements.

1: He may immediately return the animal and it’s papers to the breeder who will exchange the dog with one of like quality and kind.

2: He may keep a “show potential” animal as a pet and, upon proof of sterilization, the breeder will either refund the net difference down to “pet price” at time of sale or purchase a second “show potential” animal at the established “pet price”.

c. Seller reserves the write to consult and accept the diagnosis of a veterinarian of seller’s choice.

d. If, in the opinion of the buyer’s veterinarian, the animal must be destroyed due to a hereditary condition before the age of 15 months, the seller must first be notified. If a veterinarian of the seller’s choice concurs with the buyer’s veterinarian’s opinion, seller will replace the euthanized animal with one of like quality.

e. All claims must be made within thirty days of confirmation of condition. Exchange or replacement is subject to availability.

f. Seller is not responsible for death, injury, or deformity of the animal due to accident, illness, or any deviation from adequate care normally given a giant breed dog, including overweight.

g. In the case of a show potential male puppy, the breeder retains breeding rights on this dog. The breeder reserves the right to use this dog as stud to any bitch owned or co-owned by the breeder. There will be no monetary compensation for this service. In the event that vet collection fees and shipping charges are encountered, these charges will be paid by the breeder.

It is further agreed that if the buyer fails to perform any of these acts, the seller may, at his option, revoke this agreement of sale and take possession of the dog with the buyer forfeiting further rights to the dog and the cash consideration paid to the seller.
