(I recommend if you do not have another dog or only have an older dog, that you consider two puppies - I've personally found that raising 2 puppies at the same time is much much easier than just one & it is better for the puppies.) A single furkid family can make for a bored and lonely puppy.

8. You agree that you will not use oral flea and tick preventatives (if you do use these products you understand all warranties are void and that many dogs are having very serious side effects including unexplained illness, seizures and death. Do a facebook search "Does Bravecto Nexguard Comfortis Simparica Trifexis & Others Do they kill Dogs" to find several groups that also include the other brands of oral flea and tick meds, as well as collars and spot-ons.) Spot on meds can also be very dangerous causing severe side effects and even death.

Has the sweetest best personality
We have been breeding Mastadors for over 10 years now, and are the first Breeder of the Mastador (aka English Mastador). We are located on an 80 acre ranch by Hinckley, MN. Our dogs live in the house with us as pets and also have access to 80 acres of fields, ponds and woods to explore. Our adult dogs live in the house as pets and The puppies are raised in our home the entire time they are here with us, not just the first 2-3 weeks like many breeders who "house raise" their pups. Our puppies experience everyday household life and noises daily like the comings and goings of people and our other dogs, the TV, vacuum cleaner, blender, bug zapper, and other sounds and activities. I am a stay at home puppy mamma and the puppies are played with and cuddled everyday. Once our puppies are big enough to use the doggie door they have access to play outside, explore the yard, and to potty outside. We also implement ENS for their first 2 weeks of life, and thereafter daily enrichment items and activities, Socialization, Puppy Culture, and starting at 2 weeks old the Misty Method of early potty training.
Their parents are health tested for over 150 genetic diseases. Your puppy will come with a great start on potty training, initial vet exam (our vet comes right to our home), regular deworming, lifetime breeder support, health guarantee, free 30 day puppy health insurance, microchip, optional vaccinations, exclusive facebook group just for our puppy families, birth certificate, IDCR registration info/application, Puppy Training &/or Fitness Booklet, Blanket, Harness/leash, swag bag with treats, toys, & more.
We are proud to be licensed and inspected by the Minnesota Board of Animal Health,
and look forward to participating in the Minnesota Breeders Excellence Program.
We can Deliver door to door to ANYWHERE in the continental US or can meet you at the the Canadian Border; You can pick your puppy up in person by car, or you can Fly in to Minneapolis, rent a car to pick the puppy up, and take the puppy back as carry-on.
PHOTOS/VIDEO: We post individual photos of reserved puppies to their individual albums approximately every 2 weeks with current weight in the description of the first photo for that week, and/or group videos to our facebook page. We also post photos and videos fairly often to our Instagram. If you would like extra photo session (6-8 photos) or video (1-2 minutes) featuring your puppy added to his/her album, you can request that using the Link below.
Our dogs are health tested and are English Mastiff/Labrador Retriever mix ONLY.

10 Years Experience Breeding Mastadors
A portion of the proceeds from each puppy will go towards nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations helping dogs, and other pets and pet families in need.
So far donations have gone to:
People & Pets Together -
Help pets whose people are going through financial hardship.
Ruff Start Rescue -
No kill, foster based, rescue based in MN
Each puppy is priced individually.
Prices are based on factors such as: Gender, Color, Size, Conformation, Disposition, % of Mastiff to Lab, etc
In our 10+ years experience breeding Mastadors, we've found that offering a range of prices is the best way for everyone to find loving furever homes while allowing us to cater to a range of different budgets.
Some Colors (and the bigger more mastiffy pups) are harder to come by, or may just be higher in demand.
The rarer/harder to find colors tend to be what I get the most requests for (Fawn/Sable/Apricot/Brindles).
Other colors are much more frequent (&/or are in lower demand) so we ask a lower price for these pups.
SIZE or WEIGHT
We track the pups weights and also follow up with some of our past puppies -
so that I can give you a better idea of what range their estimated adult weight will be.
There can be a huge size range among our Mastadors - even pups from the same litter.
Anywhere from 70 pounds on up to 170 pounds.
Our averages for the girls tend to fall in the 110-130 range and for the boys is in the 125-145 range
