Bull Mastiff Puppies – Chooses a Family Dog
Finding bullmastiff puppies for sale in the Sacramento area can be quite a challenge. The sheer number of ads on the classifieds and on craigslist alone can get you confused and frustrated. You may even wonder if the ads are placed there by people who just want to sell their puppies for cheap. However, the ads may be placed by legitimate breeders looking to do business in Saco County. To separate the two groups, we have listed a few criteria for identifying legitimate businesses that sell these types of pets.
Bullmastiff puppies for sale in Saco County are advertised in a variety of places. Most of them are located near Highway 99-A in the Northwoods. On the right side of this road, you will find a large section of ads placed by breeders and pet stores. To make sure you’re getting local ads, it’s best to stick to ads that are placed right beside Highway 99-A.
When looking at ads in this section, be on the lookout for the word “pet.” There should be a phone number or address given with the ad. It’s important to call the phone number or return the address to verify the name of the person posting the ad as well as to confirm that the pet is actually being offered for sale. It is illegal to advertise puppies for sale using fake phone numbers and addresses. Any company that posting ads without verifying the identity of the person posting the ad is committing puppy mills.
If you know of someone – perhaps an acquaintance or a friend – who has bull terriers, it’s a good idea to ask whether they are selling puppies.
Keep in mind, however, that the Internet makes it easier for unscrupulous breeders to pose as legitimate businesses when they’re really just scamming people looking for bulldogs. Ask friends and family if they’ve heard of this person or company. Chances are if they’ve received a phone call from such a place, the caller will try to sell you on a puppy that simply isn’t what you were hoping to find.
You can avoid falling victim to scams by only looking at ads placed by licensed breeders. A licensed breeder will usually use their own dogs for breeding, so the puppies they are listing will be purebred. Besides, licensed breeders do not subject their bullmastiff puppies to horrible abuse – in many states, they have to meet rigorous standards before they can breed. The American Bull Mastiff Association boasts stringent requirements for its dog breeding operation. They also perform routine health exams on their male and female dogs – with the male being spayed regularly. It’s very rare for puppies to be born with birth defects.
Also, when you buy a bull mastiff puppies from a reputable breeder, don’t be afraid to ask questions. If the puppy has never been handled before, it’s very important to make sure that the staff knows how to handle the breed. Ask about their knowledge of bull mastiff nutrition, exercise requirements, and about the breeder’s thoughts on good pet health practices.
If you’re unable to locate a bull mastiff puppies available in your area, don’t despair.
Many times, reputable breeders will ship puppies to your home instead of showing them at local shows. If you can find one that does this, it’ll be cheaper and probably quicker. Just keep in mind, though, that just because it’s easier to ship a puppy around rather than show it at an exhibition doesn’t mean the puppy will be any better. In truth, there’s almost no difference – just a different method.
I’ve always thought that a bull mastiff puppy needs about ten hours of sleep per day. The puppies, however, seem to like it even less! So, if you want to bring home a puppy, make sure it gets enough sleep. If you’re getting one from a reputable breeder, you probably won’t even have to worry about this. Keep in mind, however, that a bullmastiff is a highly instinctive dog that requires lots of exercise and lots of attention, so you need to match the lifestyle of the dog with yours.
