Dog Breed & Breeders

    • Country of Origin
      The Dachshund (pronounced dak-sund; also known as a ‘Teckel’) originated in Germany in the sixteenth century. They were bred and trained to chase down prey, such as a badger (Dachshund means ‘Badger Dog’) or fox, enter its burrow, kill it, and retrieve it. The Dachshund was recognized as a distinct breed in 1910 and has gradually increased in popularity to become a favored pet. Famous Dachshunds include Picasso’s dog Lump, who may have inspired some of his works, and Waldi, the first Olympic Mascot and symbol of the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, Germany.

      Size
      There are three different sizes of Dachshund. The standard Dachshund has a chest girth of at least 35 cm (13.75 in) and maximum weight of 9 kg (20 lbs). The Miniature Dachshund has a chest girth of 30-35 cm (11.75-13.75 in) and weight up to 4 kg (9 lbs). The Toy Dachshund (not formally recognized) has a chest girth smaller than 30 cm (11.75 in) and weighs 3.5 kg (8 lbs). All Dachshunds have an arched muzzle, almond shaped eyes, round ears, and straight tail. They are recognizable by their long, flat bodies and short legs. Writer H.L Mencken famously referred to them as ‘a half-dog high and a dog-and-a-half long.”

      Coat and Color
      The Dachshund coat may be smooth, long, or wire-haired. All have distinct appearance. Colors can be reddish-brown, black, tan, chocolate brown, deep chestnut in reddish-brown, and black and tan. The hairs on the wire-haired Dachshund should lie flat and be as hard as possible.

      Character
      Dachshunds are energetic, brave, intelligent and independent. They are quite happy, even clownish, and can behave mischievously on occasion. The Dachshund greatly enjoys interacting with humans and is quite friendly and outgoing at home. Dachshunds make fine companions and are not typically used as hunters.

      Temperament
      The Dachshund is somewhat reserved around strangers and may bark at them, but forms a strong bond with family. It can be too courageous around larger dogs. Dachshunds are bold and outgoing, enjoying attention and frequently seeking adventure. They get along well with known children but may behave aggressively towards unknown children. Wired-haired Dachshunds tend to be more lively and outgoing then smooth-hairs; miniature Dachshunds may also be more reserved.

      Care
      The smooth- and long-haired Dachshund should be brushed occasionally to remove dead hairs. Long-haired Dachshunds are prone to tangles, so they should be groomed more often. The coat of the wire-haired Dachshund should be plucked twice a year. Dachshunds live 12-15 years.

      Training
      Long-haired Dachshunds are slightly easier to train than smooth- or wire-haired Dachshunds, however all varieties need firm and consistent training because they have minds of their own. The Dachshund is also sensitive and should be corrected gently, lest it become cowed and afraid.

      Activity
      The Dachshund needs a small amount of exercise; medium length walks or a fair amount of play in the yard should be sufficient. Dachshunds may tire easily so exercise should be spaced out throughout the day. Dachshunds can live comfortably in an apartment, but it is best if they get an occasional view of the wild. Frequent jumping and running should not be allowed as it may cause back problems.



    • Country of Origin
      The Neapolitan Mastiff (also known as the ‘Neo’, ‘Mastini’, or ‘Italian Mastiff’) is an Italian breed named after the region of Naples, where most of its development occurred. The Neapolitan Mastiff’s ancient origins are with the Molossians, an early Hellenic tribe known for its powerful guard dogs. In 326 B.C., King Porus of Punjab gave Alexander the Great a pair of Neapolitan Mastiffs which proved quite popular. These dogs were bred widely, producing many offspring which were adapted by the Romans as war dogs and fighters. They were also pit in the Arena against gladiators, bears, and even elephants. The dogs were later crossed with fierce British guard dogs, producing an even larger, more powerful breed resembling the modern Neapolitan Mastiff. It was discovered near Naples in 1946 by Piere Scanziani, who standardized the breed and promoted its development. Few Neapolitan Mastiffs arrived in America until the 1970’s. They were fully recognized by the American Kennel Club in 2004. Neapolitan Mastiffs have inspired portrayals in fictional literature including ‘Fang’ from ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Pansy’ from Andrew Vachss’ series of Burke detective novels.

      Size
      The Neapolitan Mastiff has a shoulder height of 60-75 cm (23-30 in) and weighs 50-70 kg (110-150 lbs). It has a large, droopy, wrinkled head with large flews (upper lips) and dewlap (wrinkled folds beneath the chin), deep set eyes which are almost entirely covered by folds, and pronounced stop (depression where the muzzle meets the forehead). Loose folds of skin cover nearly the entire body. Neapolitan Mastiffs have a flat back, round feet, and low-hanging tail docked to two-thirds its natural length.

      Coat and Color
      The Neapolitan Mastiff has a short, dense, hard, fine, uniformly smooth coat. The Neapolitan Mastiff can be standard grey, leaden grey, dove-grey, leaden black, brown, fawn, deep fawn, light fawn, or hazel. White patches on the chest and tips of the toes are not uncommon.

      Character
      The Neapolitan Mastiff is confident, gentle-natured, and powerful. Bred as a guard dog, it is highly suspicious of strangers and protective of its property and family. It does not bark unless necessary. Neapolitan Mastiffs are intelligent, majestic, and noble. They do drool and tend to make a mess when eating and drinking.

      Temperament
      Neapolitan Mastiffs are very good with children if socialized early, but close supervision around young children is advised due to their massive size. The Neapolitan Mastiff generally gets along with other dogs and household pets, but socialization when young is recommended. Male Neapolitan Mastiffs may be aggressive with other male dogs.

      Care
      The Neapolitan Mastiff requires frequent cleaning of the dewlap area and facial folds. Other than that, the Neapolitan Mastiff coat requires little attention; dead and loose hairs should be removed with a rubber brush when the Neapolitan Mastiff is shedding. As with all very large dogs, the Neapolitan Mastiff needs a soft place to lie down to avoid pressure marks. The Neapolitan Mastiff has a short lifespan of 8-10 years, with larger dogs tending toward the lower end of that range. Common health problems for Neapolitan Mastiffs include hip and elbow dysplasia (malformed joints which can cause lameness or arthritis), skin infections, and cardiomyopathy. Bloat is another potentially dangerous illness which can be prevented by placing the dog’s food dish on a raised surface, spacing meals throughout the day, and avoiding exercise immediately after meals. Obesity can cause a number of problems for the Neapolitan Mastiff; proper exercise and nutrition are critical. Neapolitan Mastiffs prefer life indoors and are not well suited to hot weather.

      Training
      Neapolitan Mastiff training must be conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, with consistency and understanding. This breed is a bit obstinate, but will obey once it understands what is expected of it and recognizes its owner’s authority. Obedience training at a young age is recommended. Neapolitan Mastiffs are happy to learn, but may refuse to perform tricks they consider pointless.

      Activity
      In spite of its large size, the adult Neapolitan Mastiff has only an average need for exercise. It enjoys walks or play in a large fenced-in yard. Puppy Neapolitan Mastiffs should not be over exercised—the Neapolitan Mastiff requires all of its energy to grow strong bones and put on weight because it grows very rapidly. Due to their large size and space requirements, Neapolitan Mastiffs are not recommended for small apartments.
    • Country of Origin
      The Bullmastiff was bred in England by crossing the English Mastiff with the Bulldog. Such crosses were mentioned in documents as far back as the 1700’s, but the modern Bullmastiff likely derives from later crosses in the late 1800’s. Wealthy estate owners bred the dog to chase down and fight off game poachers, taking speed from the Bulldog stock and strength from the Mastiff. The targeted mix was sixty percent Mastiff and forty percent Old English Bulldog. The Bullmastiff was originally bred with a dark coat to serve as natural night camouflage (then called the ‘Gamekeeper’s Night Dog’), but fashionable light coating was later preferred when the breed began serving as estate dogs for the upper class. The Bullmastiff was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1933. Famous Bullmastiffs include Rocky’s dog ‘Butkus’ and the title character from the film ‘See Spot Run’.

      Size
      The Bullmastiff has a shoulder height of 61-68 cm (24-27 in) and weighs 45-60 kg (100-133 lbs). The Bullmastiff has a large, wrinkly head and a short, wide, dark muzzle. It has a dark nose with wide nostrils and round, amber eyes. Bullmastiffs have a moderately pronounced stop (point at which the muzzle meets the forehead) and dark, V-shaped ears which hang close to the face. They have a flat back and highly set, low hanging tail. They are dignified and powerful in appearance.

      Coat and Color
      The Bullmastiff has a short-haired red, light tan (‘fawn’) or reddish-brown (‘brindle’) coat with a distinctive dark area on the muzzle and ears and around the eyes. Some white on the chest is permissible. Bullmastiffs shed little.

      Character
      The Bullmastiff is intelligent, loyal, obedient, and courageous. It builds a strong bond of devotion with its family. Bullmastiffs are highly protective of their family against any perceived threats, but they are much more likely to bowl over strangers than attack, which makes them desirable as guard dogs. They do, however, have a stubborn side which sometimes makes them resistant to obedience training. Some Bullmastiffs may drool or snore.

      Temperament
      The Bullmastiff can be somewhat dominant toward other Bullmastiffs (males especially do not get along), but is very tolerant towards children and can get along with other household pets provided proper socialization has taken place, preferably when young. Though they would do no harm intentionally, Bullmastiffs should be watched around young children due to their immense size.

      Care
      The Bullmastiff should be brushed periodically with a rubber brush to remove dead hairs. Trim the nails occasionally and bathe only when necessary. Bullmastiffs do not do well in outdoor heat or apart from their human companions; they prefer a soft bed indoors. The Bullmastiff is susceptible to hip dysplasia and PRA, a genetic disorder of the retina. Bullmastiffs have a lifespan of 9-11 years and litters of 6-10 puppies.

      Training
      The Bullmastiff is sensitive to the tone of its master’s voice; its handler must demonstrate authority and consistency. Obedience training is recommended for the Bullmastiff, but their stubbornness may make the process difficult.

      Activity
      The Bullmastiff only requires a moderate amount of exercise for its large size. It will be satisfied with a daily opportunity to run and play on a leash.
