American Mastiff Breeders Council
APPROVED BREEDERS' RESCUE POLICY
Why a Breed Rescue?
Breed rescue organizations exist to support dogs of that specific breed that find themselves homeless for whatever reason. Owners, shelters, local authorities all are sources of dogs that are turned over to a rescue organization. The rescue then evaluates the dog and tries to find an appropriate new home.
Why is there no American Mastiff Rescue Organization?
Simply, THERE IS
NO NEED FOR AMERICAN MASTIFF RESCUE if the dog was bred by
Each American Mastiff adoptive "parent" (buyer) signs a contract when purchasing their puppy. Within that contract, there is a clause that requires the owner to return the puppy/dog to the breeder should the need arise for any reason. i.e. change in life circumstances; etc. or whatever reason. In fact, the contract specifically prohibits the new owner to ever place the dog in a rescue facility. Doing so would be a serious violation of that contact, and the owner could be subject to legal action.
If you hear of an American Mastiff in a rescue that dog is probably not a CKC purebred American Mastiff. As members of the AM Breed Council, we wish to be notified of any advertised “American Mastiff” in any rescue facility. The rescue will be contacted immediately to gather the appropriate information needed to verify if it is in fact a CKC purebred American Mastiff and if it was bred by one of our member breeders.
Actions taken by AMBC, LLC when a potential rescue situation arises.
Then AMBC, LLC assumes IT
IS NOT AN AMERICAN MASTIFF.
Merely claiming to have an American Mastiff in a rescue facility is NOT
proof that the dog is an American Mastiff.
· AMBC, LLC seriously doubts any claim of American Mastiffs bred by our Member breeders
going to rescue due
to the clause in the puppy purchase contract. Why would anyone place a
dog in rescue when they could easily and immediately return the dog to
the original breeder OR TURN TO AMBC, LLC FOR HELP?
Breeders insist on puppies going only to loving homes where they will be part of the family. They are easily housetrained using the same training methods used for any puppy. They want to live in the house and be part of the family. They are content and happy when with their family.
