Rascal the American Bandogge Mastiff at 4 years old—"Rascal lives his day to day in our home located about a half hour north of Houston, Texas. My wife and I owned both parents since they were puppies; his father was a Great Dane, Cain, and his mother a Bandog (APBT/Neo), Daisy, that hails from working (hunting) stock in South East Louisiana. I work in the oil and gas industry and travel quite often and like having a large and competent dog to defend by family in my absence. Given the shorter life expectancy of the giant breeds, Cain was about 4 when we started considering acquiring another guardian type breed to replace him when he passed. I came into possession of our APBT/Neo, Daisy, while working post Katrina in the New Orleans area of Louisiana. It was never my intent to breed these two together, it never even occurred to me and honestly I would have never believed that that coupling could happen given the disparity in height. I guess the old saying 'where there is a will there is a way' applied because it happened. The first litter was 6 beautiful pups. So I gave puppies to friends and family and kept a puppy for myself. After about 18 months I had other friends and family members that wanted to get a puppy. So I allowed the second pairing to occur. That litter only produced 1 puppy, a singleton my wife dubbed Rascal. Given the circumstances involving a family member; She really needed a dog that was already of decent size. So I re-homed the male dog that I had kept named Bruno to her and then kept Rascal. Cain was still a very virile and energetic dog that still displayed a high amount of drive and paired with Daisy, a 70 pound Bandog our home was still very protected. So I felt comfortable letting her have the 80 pound Bruno; who by the way grew into a stable and driven 120 pound protector. As time passed Cain and Daisy had a few more litters as Rascal grew to a formidable beast and his father lived to the ripe age of 10 and sired a total of 6 litters for a total of 38 puppies. Daisy is still with us, healthy, happy and just made 10 years old this month. A majority their puppies went to friends, family or their friends and family. Thus allowing me to keep tract of development but also have selection for future breeding. He is about 140 +/- 5 pounds depending on the season. He stands 29.5" at the shoulder. He does not have dog aggression nor is he aggressive towards smaller house pets such as our two cats or tortoise. Though he will annihilate any varmint that should find itself unfortunate enough to have trespassed onto our property. He has a great nose, high pain threshold, heat tolerant and high endurance especially for such a large dog. His coat is short and low maintenance. He adores our children and will obey commands, as do all of our dogs, from our 5 year old daughter. He has proven to be a vigilant guardian as well as a tolerant and loving member of our family."

Tornabene's Bandogge Achilles Sch/IPO1 the American Bandogge Mastiff at 4 years old—"Achilles is a working Bandogge Mastiff titled in the sport of Schutzhund. He is a very intense dog with great athleticism, work ability, high drive, a solid bold temperament and is one of the highest titled Bandogges in the world. He is working toward his Schutzhund/IPO2 title and then onto his 3. He will also be titled in PSA. He is a true example of what a Bandogge should be.

"Radley, my flashy brindle male American Bandogge at 12 weeks; his father is Mastiff, mother American Bulldog. Well, as of right now he is just a puppy, but from what I can tell he exhibits both his mother and father’s traits. He can be extremely lazy at times and stubborn to walk. If he doesn't want to go somewhere he'll collapse, unless you have food (hence the picture of me carrying him below). Potty training is 3 weeks in and he understands that when we go outside you go pee, but if he gets excited, he isn't too shy to have an accident. I assume he falls under semi-difficult to train because he has a "what's in it for me" attitude. He is however extremely energetic while playing with our other dog and gets along with all other animals, but gets out-wrestled by other smaller puppies in a submissive way. No drooling, but he does have terrible audible gas if you feed him treats. Overall he is extremely happy and playful and wonderful to be around. People have stopped their cars while driving saying "I've got to see this guy…" So he is doing great in his socializing and lets everyone touch his ears, tail and paws. Very little barking in his crate even during the first night in it and sleeps for 8 hours at night. Only whines if I don't get up in time and he needs to go to the bathroom."
