Our Mastador Breeding Program here at Faulkner Natural Farms started only after we were convinced of the exceptional health, orthopedics and
temperament of this combination of the Labrador Retriever and the English Mastiff. The Mastador Breed is easily adaptable to a variety of
contemporary lifestyles.  For the past 10+ years, we have been observing and testing  the breed's abilities in independence, athleticism, intelligence,
willingness and protective instincts. Just as important  we have also been observing the conformation quality of each and every puppy, and we have
not been disappointed in our Mastadors.
Our home accommodates the multiple stages of our Mastadors life from birth through puppyhood to meeting their new parents or staying on with us
on the farm to be an integral part of the next  generation.  For birthing we have a climate controlled whelping room designed to prevent disease or
injury. When the babies are ready for that first outdoor adventure we have a puppy proof yard that encompasses a grassy half acre enclosure with
ample shade and protection,  where we observe constantly to add to each puppy's bio.  Our puppy playyard is disease and chemical free.
The Mastadors from Mastador Gracious Guardians are truly the epitome of  the combination of the English Mastiff  and the Labrador Retriever and
that genetic balance continues through our
F1  and  F2 Puppies.

We, Mastador Gracious Guardians, pledge to not participate in the industrialization of living beings. As a Responsible Breeder we practice and provide
the highest Professional Breeding Standards. We are always directly involved in the reproductive process, homing and care-giving of each puppy and
will conduct the business aspects with the greatest amount of Professionalism and trustworthiness.

Mastador Gracious Guardians (the Breeder) believes in a “whole life” approach to our Breeding Program. Inclusiveness, equality and graciousness in
the arrangements and in the needs of the whole litter, their parents, the sustainability of all that encompasses the future of the Mastador, and the pup’s
future Families (the Purchaser) is our goal. The “whole life” approach includes a good perspective of all the precious lives and years surrounding the
capricious event (the Litter).  Sometimes, adjustments, adaptations, and changes in costs and policies will be made, as needed for the protection and
propagation of our companions and the Mastador as a future Breed.

We maintain a quantity limited Breeding Program to prevent communicable canine diseases and to help assure all puppies in each Litter will have
forever homes.

REFUND–As there are so many things that can happen in life (including to Breeders) most of the burden for adjusting to “acts of nature” will be the
responsibility of Mastador Gracious Guardians. In the event there is a catastrophic loss, which means there would be no Mastador puppies available
for 1 year, we would refund a pre-paid Reservation.

APPLICATION–Caring about future homes for every puppy in the litter is of interest to all involved, so Mastador Gracious Guardians takes extra
time to provide further assurance for each puppy  through our Family Planning Options.  APPLY BY EMAIL is found on Option 2, Announcement
List and Option 3, Public Notification pages.


Because Mastador Gracious Guardians is currently canine disease free, we are able to safely eliminate the extra sets of vaccines; providing one set of
vaccinations before departure (usually between 7-7 ½ wks of age). Vaccinating a week before departure allows your puppy time to cope with side-

MGG recommends alternative methods and products be given to your dogs.  Only lifestyle required pup/dog vaccination injections (except for legality
reasons with Rabies, daycare, etc) should be administered and should not be needed more that 1-2 times in the life of a dog,  Vaccinations should be
spread out and not administered in a group.   Pharmaceuticals in general, should be kept to a minimum throughout your Mastador’s lifetime.   At least
2-4 weeks is required between vaccinations or pharmaceuticals to reduce the stress on their organs and immune system… checking for side-effects
and going on “poop patrol”.

Molly’s Herbal wormers are given as soon as the weaning starts and continues until departure.  Pure DE Powder is applied externally, as needed and
where needed, for fleas, ticks, flies, ants, etc.  We have used these two natural products since 2005, having great success without side-effects,
allergies, nor damage to any organs.

Our Puppies have safe, trained adult handling and an appropriate amount of  socialization to various travel noises, carrier, vehicles, people, farm
animals and dogs. Puppies are whelped in our house and go outdoors for recreation.  Potty training is on going to different mediums (soil, grass,
mulch, shredded paper, pads) and even Momma dog helps us out.

Mastador Gracious Guardians offers Registrations Papers through Designer Breed Registry.  We also test each puppy to verify the beloved Mastador
Temperament and lifestyle versatility.

Because all large and giant breeds physically grow slower… it means they have a longer period of time when injuries from aggressive playing, jumping
and/or inappropriate activities, duration of activities, types of activities for their individual age and during growth spurts may cause structural damage.  
We have not seen nor experienced any hereditary ACL, hip or knee dysplasia, nor other orthopedic anomalies on our farm nor have any been
reported from our Mastador Families.  

This purchase is for non-breeding puppy(s) and guarantees cover only non-breeding/bred puppy/dog.  A separate Breeding Agreement is available for

Each Mastador puppy has a life-time guarantee of MGG providing or working with the Purchaser, in a sober manner, with a whole-life perspective
about any health or training information, lifestyle adjustments or re-homing in extreme cases.  

Behavior which buyer deems intolerable and irreversible within 12 months of purchase, must show Breeder proof of sufficient socialization,
obedience classes, and other structured training methods before rehoming. Breeder must be given written rehoming address/contact info and reason(at
least 30 days prior).

CONGENITAL DEFECTS–From D.O.B., a 3 year puppy replacement or reimbursement of sale amount for this puppy if has a congenital defect that
is life threatening or has died from same.

MGG has guarantees throughout its different Options and Programs, which are specific to each, and can be found at the corresponding pages.

We, at Mastador Gracious Guardians, pledge to not participate in the industrialization of living beings. As a Responsible Breeder we practice and
provide the highest Professional Breeding Standards being directly involved in the whole-life reproductive process, homing and care-giving and will
conduct the business aspects with the greatest amount of Professionalism and trustworthiness.

We work very hard with our families and a Veterinarian to achieve the best travel method with the airlines, ground, personal delivery or pick-up
methods for each puppy. Our Mastador puppies are raised with free access to a carrier, travel noises, and rides in vehicles so we can acclimate them
for the big day, whether they travel by car, ground or air travel. Our puppy’s free access to a carrier also helps them with “crate & potty training” in
their future homes.  In working with each individual family’s travel/delivery needs, the travel industry, the Veterinarian, your puppy, and the
weather…. circumstances may occur out of our control, so that MGG may need to address date and time changes with individual Families involving
your costs and/or your travel/delivery/pick-up…although, in our experience, this is not a common occurrence.   These services we provide are at
actual costs, with receipts.  Although we do not charge a processing fee, gratuities are greatly appreciated.


•We heard about a reliable ground delivery service recommended to us at  Some Families may also be comfortable
scheduling with   –OR–


•Coming to our farm to choose your puppy or for personal pick-up of your Mastador is always an option. We are located in the N.E. corner of Texas
with easy access from various major Highways (Interstate 30, Interstate 20, Hwy. 59)


•We may be able to make arrangements to deliver to your door or deliver part of the way.


As of April 2014, The USDA published its APHIS law on “Retail Pet Rules” and does not consider current methods of pet air travel, to be inhumane,
cruel, dangerous nor unsafe. We applaud those many animal lovers that have worked so hard to improve air transportation and develop the best travel
standards currently available for all types of animals, birds, and reptiles. Many of our puppy’s families have been very happy with using air
transportation, which we make a ll the arrangements.

•The cost of a puppy airline ticket is usually no more than $300 with typically only hours of travel time, varying slightly depending on which Airline,
the weight, time of year, distance, cost of carrier.

•One may come to pick-up and fly home with their puppy as “carry-on” using a soft carrier. Certain Airlines are flexible about furry companions that
do not weigh more than 20 pounds.

•Most Airlines allow 2 puppies to travel in one carrier of appropriate size, without extra cost. Just let us know, in advance, if you wish to share with
another family.

We encourage all Fur-Ever Families to plan for the future with their canine companions. Mastador Gracious Guardians has a quantity limited Breeding
Program to prevent communicable diseases and help assure all puppies in each litter will have forever homes.
