Last updated: 8/22/2017: All information necessary for deposit and purchasing, shipping, and all puppy and parent profiles and pics are below.

This is a hybrid breeding between pedigreed dogs, thus adding even greater health and vitality to these puppies via heterosis. If you'd like to know more about the advantages of hybrid breeding, I'll recommend my own two articles with complete bibliographies here:

Advantages of "Hybrid Breeding"

An Introduction to Outcross Breeding...

This page has a lot of info on it organized into sections. While a serious buyer should read the entire page, here's some handy links to help get your questions answered quickly: Litter Notes (general description and size expectations for the available puppies), Available Puppies (to start viewing puppies now), About Mom,  About Dad,  Puppy Deposit & Purchasing Process,  Shipping,  Age of Release,  Registrations.

Any questions left unanswered are most likely answered on the American Bulldogs & Bandogges FAQs page. If you are a serious buyer, you should also read the Policies & Procedures page in its entirety. Feel free to email Blasco Family Bulldogs© by form or directly with any further questions - or to reserve your puppy now!

 
General Litter Info:

The maximum size of either should not exceed 130 pounds and 29 inches tall at the shoulders, with the girl being smaller of course.

Detailed info, pics and purchasing instructions are below...

LITTER NOTES:

There are only TWO puppies available. These puppies are very sweet, very gentle, and while they will both make excellent family guardians as adults, they are calm and reserved. Both of them are snugglers, both of them are well socialized with kids, both wanting to be nurtured and protected by loving families - and both of them already preferring to go potty outside as long - as long as you let them out often enough.

Both puppies are active and athletic. Both have very good structure (as you can see from the pics below). Both have solid "tiger stripe" red brindle jackets with red brindle eye patches as well. The boy's brindle is lighter than the girl's and may likely transition to a "blond" brindle, while the girl's will remain a light red brindle more similar to a tiger.

Size Expectation: 120+ pounds and 27+ inches tall at the shoulders, assuming good exercise and protein uptake. (NOTE: We always put the minimum size expectations. Dad is 140 pounds and over 31 inches tall at the shoulders, so either puppy could get quite a bit bigger than 120 pounds and 27 inches - especially the boy. The maximum size of either should not exceed 130 pounds and 29 inches tall at the shoulders, with the girl being smaller of course.

Trainability: These puppies are calm, handler focused dogs, intelligent and with a strong desire to please. Training will be easy and any popular training method is acceptable as long as sit means sit - disobedience never tolerated.


AVAILABLE PUPPIES

Available Male: $1,800.00 / Reference Name: "The Boy"

Color: Solid faun brindle jacket on white with dual eye patches.

Temperament/Orientation: Very friendly natural family protection dog. Very sweet and gentle with kids and strangers.

Structure: Very good overall structure, a well knit, correct dog with good early muscle development and smooth, fluid motion.

Comments: He likes everyone, but seems to like females more than males. Held by my son John he's a happy guy who likes being pet as long as you're willing. Held by my daughter Abi he goes peacefully to sleep.

When play fighting he is capable of whooping his sister and if she's too sharp with him he'll do it, but he typically backs off and lets her win as long as she's not hurting him with harder bites. His dad was similar and now as an adult he's a very merciful dog when dealing with female dogs and even most males that challenge him. He'll defend himself as necessary, he'd just rather not. He likes to get along and be friends, as long as that's allowed. Same thing with this boy I'm thinking. Much like his dad he just instinctively understands that he is powerful and must exercise self-control. He's a very mellow, well balanced dog for such a young puppy, just as Levi was.

This boy is dramatically bondable (loving towards humans), even moreso than most American Bulldogs and that's saying something. Dogs like this need to be part of the family, truly loved and regularly spending time with their human family. His dad, Levi is the same way. You don't throw dogs like this out in the yard and ignore them for a few months or they'll get seriously depressed.

American Bulldog Puppies

SOLD Female: $1,500.00 / Reference Name: "The Girl"

Color: Solid red brindle jacket on white with dual eye patches.

Temperament/Orientation: Very friendly natural family protection dog. Very sweet and gentle with kids and strangers.

Structure: Excellent overall structure, a well knit, correct dog with good early muscle development and smooth, fluid motion.

Comments: She likes everyone, but seems to like males more than males. Held by my daughter Abi she's happy enough, but gets bored within 30 minutes. Held by my adult daughter Maria she'd happily sit in her lap all day and loves her deeply... unless John or I walk by and then she's up and following us, clearly preferring our male attention over female attention.

She's a little more dominant than her brother, not a lot, but a little. She's definitely the one who instigates play almost every time. For her and her brother at this age "play" is all about play fighting and it's crystal clear this is an alpha dominant female. That reasonable. He mom Fly is an alpha. Her grandmother on her dad's side (Helen) is an alpha. So she's predictably a well behaved alpha girl. This means she's a lot like a male in her mannerisms - more protective than most females, a bit more dominant, more competitive - the kind of girl that will make you proud to own her, head always up, confident, tough like a boy, but with more feminine facial features.

Like her brother this girl is dramatically bondable (loving towards humans), even moreso than most American Bulldogs. She needs to be part of the family, truly loved and regularly spending time with her human family. You don't throw dogs like this out in the yard and ignore them for a few months, they get sad and depressed.

ABOUT BANDOGGE PUPPIES' MOM

Name: Cedar Creek's Dragon Fly (NKC # NKC13-900461462)

Breed/Bloodline: Purebred Johnson type American Bulldog

Weight: Fluctuates between 85 to 90 pounds seasonally

Height at Shoulders: 25 inches

Temperament/Behavioral Observations: A medium prey drive, medium protection drive, very calm, mild mannered and easily controllable natural family protection dog.

  • Sweet and very gentle with kids and will play for hours before getting bored.
  • Not at all dominant or threatening towards strangers in "normal" circumstances, but will not tolerate a strange adult playing rough with the kids (threat followed by engagement if the behavior continues) and instantly launches a serious committed attack in protection scenarios; i.e., mock kidnapping, home invasion, assault, etc.
  • Not overtly territorial, but will protect the house at night.
  • Generally friendly with other polite dogs of the same or opposite sex, but will not allow herself to be dominated by rude, overly aggressive dogs of either sex. Fly is an alpha female. She will submit to the "number two" position to my own more capable males, but does not see strange male dogs as anything to bow her head to.
  • Left alone in the house for 12 hours Fly will happily sleep the entire time, certainly will not mess on the floor and will be excited to greet her humans upon their return.
  • Excellent and very mellow dog in public and enjoys being pet by strangers.
  • Decent people judgment.

Structure/Physical Observations: Excellent overall structure across the board; i.e., excellent frontline, excellent legs, almost perfectly level topline, excellent head. Good musculature across the entire dog with competition level fitness and agility very easily developed by 12 months of age. Very athletic, all weather dog. Excellent mothering ability - careful with good lactation.

Location: On site at Blasco Family Bulldogs, Divide, Colorado being one of our own family dogs, thoroughly known and well loved.

ABOUT BANDOGGE PUPPIES' DAD

Name: Blasco's Levi EMXTAF1 (IDCR # IDCF1-2027L)

Breed/Bloodline: 1/2 English Mastiff and 1/2 Turkman Alabai

Weight: Fluctuates between 138 to 143 pounds seasonally.

Height at Shoulders: 31+ inches

Temperament/Behavioral Observations: A low prey drive, very high protection drive, sweet, calm, easily controllable family protection/attack dog.

  • Sweet and very gentle with kids and will play for a few minutes before getting bored and walking away.
  • Can be mildly dominant and threatening towards strangers in "normal" circumstances, but highly obedient and will accept any stranger on command. Levi will tolerate a strange adult playing rough with the kids 1.) if the stranger is approved and 2.) if an adult family member is present, but will not tolerate behavior if an adult family member is not present (threat with physical interruption (pushing, shoving, heavy dominance), followed by a self-controlled controlling engagement if the behavior continues). Levi instantly launches a serious committed attack in protection scenarios; i.e., mock kidnapping, home invasion, assault, etc.
  • Not overtly territorial during the day, but highly territorial at night when inside protecting the house.
  • Generally friendly with other polite dogs of the same or opposite sex, but can be a bit dominant. Definitely will not allow himself to be dominated by rude, overly aggressive dogs of either sex.
  • Left alone in the house for 12 hours Levi will do regular patrols of the house, certainly will not mess on the floor and will be excited to greet his humans upon their return. While he is capable of escaping the house at will, he does not. He's a good boy.
  • Excellent and very mellow, but watchful dog in public and enjoys being pet by most strangers.
  • Levi's intelligence is just off the charts, easily among the top five most intelligent dogs I've every known. He is a problem solver easily opening doors by use of door knobs by the time he was six months old, never being fooled by a laser or similar "dog games," and unbelievably intuitive regarding human emotions, your moods, a stranger's intentions, etc. His puppies are similar, both being unusually smart. Fantastic people judgement.

Structure/Physical Observations: Levi has essentially perfect structure in every way. At about 140 pounds and over 31 inches tall at the shoulders Levi moves like a much smaller and highly agile and athletic dog. He can run for miles (literally - and full out, not jogging) and he is a fairly high energy dog being on his feet and moving a minimum of five hours a day, but glad to run all day if he has a reason. Excellent musculature across the entire dog with competition level fitness by 16 months and agility by 21 months of age.

Location: On site at Blasco Family Bulldogs, Divide, Colorado being one of our own family dogs, thoroughly known and well loved.

PUPPY DEPOSIT & PURCHASING PROCESS:

A $200.00 non-refundable deposit will hold your puppy. To secure your pick, speak up NOW and promise to send your deposit right away. You will receive payment options and instructions for making deposit. Females are $1,500.00, males $1,800.00. Deposits come off the total cost of the dog. While we are pleased to accept your personal checks, ONLY CASH will be accepted on site at day of pick up. If you wish to pay by check, be sure to pay at least 10 days before day of pick up to be sure that your check will have cleared by day of pick up. FULL PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED/CLEARED BEFORE DOGS ARE PICKED UP OR DELIVERED. We will reschedule your pick up day if a check has not cleared in time.

SHIPPING:

We currently ship to the Continental United States (lower 48), Alaska and Canada for a stable $500.00 shipping cost. This additional cost includes air fare, airline approved live animal shipping crate, water/food bowls, and the Veterinarian inspection and Acclimation Statement sign-off that allows the dog to travel by plane. We do ship worldwide with Blasco dogs already in various countries throughout the world, however, all other locations are researched on a case-by-case basis for cost and feasability. It should also be known that Blasco puppies are well known for being strong, vigorous little brutes and we ship nothing less than that. You are never at risk of opening a crate to find a sickly little dog that needs to be rushed to the vet to see what's wrong with it, not ever. If we're shipping, all money for dog and shipping must be paid in full a full week in advance of the proposed shipping date.

AGE OF RELEASE:

Puppies will be released to their new homes or shipped on or about 12 weeks of age. We keep them that long on purpose. This is a best practice issue for the puppies themselves as well as a service to you, their new owners. If you'd like to know why it matters, I'll recommend my own article here:

Dog Temperament, Early Pack Socialization & Bite Inhibition

REGISTRATIONS:

All Blasco dogs have registered bloodlines accurately documented by pedigree. Purebred American Bulldog puppies receive National Kennel Club (NKC) registrations and Bandogge puppies receive International Designer Canine Registry (IDCR) registrations.
