Mastín Americano



The American Mastiff es una raza perro tipo molosoide que fue desarrollado a lo largo de muchos años de cría selectiva por Fredericka Wagner de “Flying W Farms” (Kennel dedicated to the race), in Piketon, Ohio, ago 20 or 25 years (lo cierto es que me he quemado las pestañas buscando la fecha exacta… y no he dado con ella).

The objective was to develop a dog that had the size, temperament, the provision, y la apariencia de la raza Mastín, pero con menos problemas de salud y que no perdiera tanta saliva como las otras variedades de perro Mastín, and that life expectancy was greater.

To carry out the objective, during the early development of the race felt that the best selection was crossing a English mastiff with a Mastín de Anatolia.

Y, así fue como el actual Mastín Americano, entered our history. A través de una cría muy selectiva que habrá dejado por el camino a muchos “attempts to” de Mastín Americano… as with all breeds.

THE American Mastiff is recognized and registered in the Continental Kennel Club (CKC), He was recognized as a purebred in January of the year 2000. He was raised to be a family dog, y se nota en la descripción de su carácter y temperamento…

We must not confuse the American Mastiff con el ‘American Mastiff Panja’, ya que tiene líneas de Pit Bull and Rottweiler, among others.

En la actualidad sólo hay nueve criadores de Mastín Americano autorizados por Estados Unidos y forman parte del “AMBC” acrónimo de “American Mastiff Breeders Council (Consejo de Criadores de Mastín Americano)”:
