Last updated: 6/17/2017: We currently have an exotic Bandogge litter. All information necessary for deposit and purchasing, shipping, and all puppy and parent profiles and pics are below.

This is an F1 (filial 1) hybrid breeding between pedigreed purebred 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:

LITTER NOTES:

These puppies look very much like purebred faun Bullmastiffs, but with improved structure, health, breathing and athleticism.

Puppies are very sweet, very gentle, and while they will all make excellent family guardians as adults (assuming you train them for it), they are calm and reserved - only "getting their snarl on" under the most necessary of circumstances. All puppies easily pass courage and temperament testing and all of them are big snugglers and thoroughly socialized with kids. All of them also already prefer to go potty outside, as long as you let them out often enough.

Through their mother, Lacuna, they are 1/6 English Mastiff, 1/6 Bullmastiff and 1/6 American Bulldog. Through their father they are 1/2 Italian Cane Corso. In other words, mom, Lacuna, is a three part American Bandogge and dad, Milo is a purebred Italian import Cane Corso. Mom and dad are both of course registered, pedigree'd dogs.

All will finish out after two years between 105 to 115+ pounds, depending upon male or female and upon protein uptake and muscle building exercise - so they will be large, very capable dogs, but none will take up more than their fair share of the couch!

Heads: Large, old style Bullmastiff; i.e., a bit more nose than the modern type that commonly has breathing problems, so very much an improvement.

Coats: All are marked like faun Bullmastiffs - reddish faun with black masks and slightly darker ears - no incorrect markings. All coats are short and smooth, so while there's no issues with very cold weather, there's also not a shedding concern!

Size Expectation: Females will be slightly smaller than males, but all will range between 105 and 115+ pounds as adults, assuming good exercise and protein uptake.

Trainability: All of 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.

Identification Note: Puppies look enough alike that we have shaved markings into their fur to tell them apart - rear driver's side flanks for the girls, driver's side shoulders for the boys.

American Bulldog Puppies

Available Female: $1,500.00 / Reference Name: "Girl 1"

Color: Purebred Bullmastiff faun with correct black mask and slightly darker ears - no incorrect markings.

Temperament/Orientation: A higher energy, very friendly natural family protection dog. Very sweet and gentle with kids and strangers.

Structure: Excellent overall structure with no bad points whatsoever, a very well knit, correct dog with good early muscle development and smooth, fluid motion. Great head.

Comments: Dog could pass for a purebred Bullmastiff with improved nose. Very well socialized with children and very intelligent. Excellent structure and health. Active, inquisitive, but in no way hyper. Great first dog for kids or adults. Definitely the most active dog of the litter, not quite as extreme energy as her dad, Milo, but she obviously got a piece of it from him. Loves to play, run around - would be a perfect match for a more active lifestyle. I mean all of them are active and would love hiking and whatnot if that was what their owners were into, but this girl could likely be trained as an actual sporting dog. Again, not hyper in the least, but notably higher activity - first one awake, last one asleep, less naps in between.

Comments: Dog could pass for a purebred Bullmastiff with improved nose. Very well socialized with children and very intelligent. Excellent structure and health. Active, inquisitive, but in no way hyper. Great first dog for kids or adults and another unusually happy guy who smiles a lot. All of them are clearly good natural protection dogs, but this guy seems just maybe slightly more attuned to child protection, always watching the kids closely, never straying far from them.

American Bulldog Puppies

SOLD Male: $1,800.00 / Reference Name: "Boy 1"

Color: Purebred Bullmastiff faun with correct black mask and darker ears - no incorrect markings.

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

Structure: Excellent overall structure with no bad points whatsoever, a very well knit, correct dog with good early muscle development and smooth, fluid motion. Very English Mastiff-like head, but without all the extra skin and associated drooling or loose eyes.

Comments: Biggest of the litter by maybe 10%. All the others look like very much improved Bullmastiffs, while this guy looks like a very much improved, slightly smaller English Mastiff. If you ever wanted an English Mastiff but thought they were too big or didn't like the drooling and loose eyes and maybe wanted just a bit more activity and dramatically better structure, this guy is definitely just for you.

ABOUT BANDOGGE PUPPIES' MOM

Name: NWK's Alpha Lacuna Lyrae (IDCR # IDC3364F)

Breed/Bloodline: American Bandogge Mastiff being 1/3 English Mastiff, 1/3 Bullmastiff and 1/3 American Bulldog via Night Watchman Kennels

Weight: Fluctuates between 110 to 115 pounds seasonally.

Height at Shoulders: 26 inches

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

  • Sweet and very gentle with kids and will play for a few minutes before getting bored and walking away.
  • Not at all dominant or threatening towards strangers - will even allow a stranger to rough play with the kids, as long as 1.) a family adult is present and 2.) the child's feet remain on the ground. Pick up one of my kids and try to run for your car and Lacuna will stop you.
  • Not overtly territorial, but will protect the house at night.
  • Very friendly with other polite dogs of the same or opposite sex, but will not allow herself to be dominated by rude, overly aggressive females or strange male dogs.
  • Left alone in the house for 12 hours Lacuna will happily sleep the entire time, certainly will not mess on the floor and will wag her tail when her humans arrive - maybe getting up to greet them, maybe not bothering.
  • Excellent and very mellow dog in public and enjoys being pet by strangers.
  • Decent people judgment.

Structure/Physical Observations: Good overall structure, but with a mildly ascending topline (her butt is a bit higher than her shoulders). Excellent frontline. Excellent legs. Awesome head. Great, heavy musculature across the entire dog with competition level fitness and agility very easily developed by 18 months of age. Very athletic, all weather dog.

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: Beata's Potente Milo (IDCR # IDC2921M)

Breed/Bloodline: Purebred Italian import Cane Corso off Italian military lines.

Weight: Fluctuates between 108 to 112 pounds seasonally.

Height at Shoulders: 27 inches

Temperament/Behavioral Observations: Mid prey drive with very high protection drive, a high energy, but easily controllable and outwardly very friendly natural family protection dog.

  • Sweet and very gentle with kids - loves to play and will play all day.
  • Heavy threat display towards strangers on the property (especially in the house until commanded otherwise), but will not seek to physically dominate without good cause. However, a stranger trying to rough play with one of the kids will receive a threat, then if continuing a controlled warning bite. After that the stranger will not be tolerated within reach of the kids again without verbal release of the guarding posture from a family adult. A stranger foolishly pushing it past that point will be immediately engaged and harmed - Milo does not play when it comes to protecting his humans.
  • Not overtly territorial but highly committed to household protection at night.
  • Milo truly LOVES other polite dogs of the same or opposite sex, but will not allow himself to be dominated by strange dogs.
  • Left alone in the house for 12 hours Milo will pace and patrol, certainly not mess on the floor and he'll be very happy and excited when his humans return. After about 12 hours there's a good chance Milo will open a window (he's smart like that), rip out a screen and jump outside to go play with the other dogs on the yard just cause he got bored and couldn't contain himself any longer. He's good for a solid 12 hours though and that's really saying something for a high energy Cane Corso. Milo could easily acclimate to an apartment lifestyle with a good long run every evening.
  • Excellent, happy dog in public with a whole lot of high energy wiggling and prancing when receiving attention from most strangers.
  • Excellent, highly sophisticated people judgment. The wiggly, happy Milo becomes still and silently serious, closely watching the hands and face of strangers he doesn't trust.

Structure/Physical Observations: Milo is one of the few dogs on the planet with arguably "perfect" structure. Excellent EVERYTHING. Fantastic, slim, working dog, very hard and wirey musculature across the entire dog with competition level fitness and agility very easily developed by 8 months of age and extreme competition level fitness by 14 months of age. Dog is dramatically athletic and agile - Milo can literally jump straight over a 6 foot man's head and runs at least 12 hours out of every 24, every day and night, year round in any weather.

Location: On site at Blasco Family Bulldogs, Divide, Colorado being one of our own family dogs, thoroughly known and well loved. Also Uno's father, making this litter of puppies Uno's half brothers and sisters and in fact look quite a bit like Uno.

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.
