A book could already be written on a life and adventures with a Mastador, even with its short
history. All those who live with a Mastador want another and all those who have met a
Mastador want to know more about them.
Veterinarians have marveled in seeing how a Mastador litter at 6-7 weeks will work together,
stay quiet and are fearless. Breeders have reported seeing how tuned-in and functionally
alert these newborns are. Mastador puppies are able to identify where Mom comes in/out of
the whelping bed, preparing for Mom’s arrival. The puppies are not very vocal and seem to
potty train themselves and they are capable of identifying and addressing a different object
in their puppy area.
Older Mastador puppies show their mental maturity and talents early. Being hyper-learners
but not hyper-active, these puppies seek out the family routine and work to fit-into a job.
Mastador puppies are well aware of family routine and lifestyle, at 4 months, Mastador
puppies are able to quickly identify and address potential threats by courageously placing
themselves between the danger and their family.
The Mastador is so versatile they are able to fulfill a balanced variety of affection and
protection for our contemporary lifestyles, individuals, different family sizes and living
spaces. Mastadors are job oriented and accommodating whatever the family lifestyle and
routine, they will be the best at it. Mastadors can be an affectionate couch-potato, cuddle
bunny, foot warmer, kisser, or outdoor companion, he is everything anyone could ever want
from a dog, yet at the same time, this magnificent breed is an attentive and fearless gentle
guardian that does not hurry to confront aggressively but chooses to warn first, a
commending and valuable asset for any breed.
As a Breeder, we are honored to be a part of Designer Breed Registry and to work with other
Breeders to support the Mastador.
