American Bandogge Mastiff

If you are an experienced dog owner that is looking for an effective guard dog and a fiercely loyal family member, consider the American bandogge mastiff. The American bandogge mastiff is an example of a hybrid dog. To create a hybrid, two specific purebreds are purposely bred together. In the case of the American bandogge mastiff, the two parent breeds are the American bandogge and the mastiff. Like most of today’s hybrid dogs, the American bandogge mastiff was created in the United States during the 1900s. When a hybrid is created, the best qualities of both parent breeds are passed down to the new creation. By broadening the gene pool to include two purebreds, the risk for genetic health problems is lowered.
