All About American Bulldogs with American Bulldog puppies for saleWelcome to Blasco Family Bulldogs©. We breed American Bulldogs and various Bandogge Mastiffs in Colorado. While we do respect the achievements of more dog show oriented fellow breeders (offering high praise to some of them), and while Blasco dogs have indeed stood in the winner's circle, beauty contest victories are not our particular focus. We are breed developers, focused exclusively on hybrid, working type American Bulldogs and Bandogge Mastiffs.

It's a scientific fact, outcross breeding (breeding dogs together of different breeds), promotes superior dog-health across a broad range of metrics. Our goal is to capture what we believe are the superior health, structural, performance and protection characteristics of more ancient dogs, from the modern dog genome. We often have excellent purebred dogs, as well as other beautiful, highly functional dogs, the successful results of outcross breeding. However, all Blasco dogs are suitable for family companionship and homestead protection. I'm Daniel Blasco, and that's our boy, Blasco's Doc Holliday. Sorry if I look a little mean, the sun was in my eyes.

All Blasco dogs can be trained as Canine Good Citizens (except where otherwise noted), while retaining their strong drive towards family protection. Our Bandogges' and the American Bulldogs' prey drive is generally subordinate to their pack drive, motivating protection of the "pack" (you and your kids).

Such dogs were originally developed on medieval European farmyards. With no law enforcement or guns, with ruffians, scallywags and wild beasts ever present, the Old World was rife with danger. Children might range many miles tending flocks and managing unruly livestock, having only their fiercely loyal dogs to protect and assist them. These dogs almost without fail, will naturally distinguish between a lamb (to be protected), and coyotes to be driven off or killed, a distinction clearly not prey driven.

Even in hunting, such dogs do not generally kill hogs or other large game, much less your chickens, goats, piglets or other domestic or livestock animals! They are bred to corral and contain, or (as necessary) to catch and hold a threat; i.e., to "bully" it, until their master arrives, or escapes and recalls the dog to safety.

Our American Bulldogs and Bandogge Mastiffs are farm utility dogs, bred to protect people and property from both animal and human predators alike. While they are sweet, stable, and gentle as lambs with family members, they are territorial animals, confronting perceived threats with overwhelming aggression. Dogs bred as family and homestead guardians have simple and easy to provide, yet very particular and important requirements to be safe within our communities.

All protection bred dogs require:

1) Human and animal socialization from puppyhood through adulthood, teaching the dog through repeated positive exposure, that most people are nice and pleasant to interact with; that other family pets (or unfamiliar dogs at the dog park) do not need to be herded, "bullied" or otherwise controlled.

2) Strict obedience training which apart from the standard "sit" and "stay" commands, teaches the dog to always obey the less dominant human personalities within the family pack (typically your wife and kids), especially the "out" or "down" command, causing the dog to release anything in its mouth, and come to rest at your side, every time, without exception.

3) Responsible, conscientious dog owners that understand their particular dog's capabilities, unique personality, and temperament, and who make all decisions regarding their dog - where to take him, with whom to leave him, whether or not he needs containment in any given situation, with public safety, as well as the potential for liability, always firmly in mind.

Please enjoy the site. It's admittedly long-winded. We use it as a scrap book, for memories, articles and opinion statements, wanting you to know who we are, and where your dog comes from. Some basic info follows for your convenience...

Most questions are already answered in exhaustive detail on the FAQs page, and because of the number of emails I get, please glance through it before emailing me. However, please don't hesitate to email me by form or directly with any further questions, links, or polite comments. I try to answer emails once a day. If I'm busy you may wait a few days longer, but I will answer you.

Concerning phone calls, we're on the north slope of Pikes Peak at nearly 9,000 feet. There's no cell service at the house, the landline is unreliable, and I do not Skype. For general communication email avoids my phone situation. It also allows this old man to remember who I spoke to last week. So please don't send me call-back requests. Of course we will gladly speak to intended buyers by phone before you make deposits, assuring that you are not about to send money to a PO Box in Malaysia.

If you intend to get a dog from us, please read the Policies & Procedures page in its entirety. Email me if you require any clarifications. When puppies are available on the Available page, email us to stake your claim, and begin the very simple approval and purchasing process.

We do not accept deposits for dogs not yet born, and we do not maintain waiting lists. Such practices are designed to get money from you as fast as possible, and prevent you from shopping around. Our process is to send out Blasco Puppy Announcements to previous email contacts.

We ship worldwide, and throughout the Continental United States, Alaska and Canada for pre-set, reasonable costs. Other international shipping incurs additional costs based upon destination. We will not ship to any country with a quarantine requirement for our dogs.

Regarding the dogs pictured, some dogs are no longer with us (whether having passed on, or been rehomed as adults), and we do own dogs not pictured on the site as well.

Below you'll find the first few photos of our family, and our dogs, to help you get to know both of us better. There's also more pics and useful bits of information in the Dog Profiles and Photos sections.

And hey, do you already own a Blasco dog?

"It will be seen that the legitimate uses of the mastiff among the Britons were to defend their homes and property, and also to assist in driving cattle, while in times of war they afforded a guard for the women and chariots."
(The History of the Mastiff, Wynn, 1886)

"The author Marius Terentius Varro, who died in the year 27 B.C., reports in his book on agriculture of two kinds of dogs that were bred in this country (Rome). The first were hunting dogs and the second large herding dogs, who effectively protect sheep and goats. From this description of these herding dogs we quote:

The lower jaw is undershot. From it grows two teeth, one on the left, the other on the right, which are only slightly exposed... These dogs have large heads and drooping ears, a strong nape and neck... The tail is thick, the bark sonorous, the jaws large; the color usually is white..."

(Fighting Dog Breeds, Dr. Dieter Fleig, TFH Publications, 1996)
(Referencing the ancient Alaunts of Britain, imported by Rome, and as described by the first century writer, Varro, in Epirus of Molossi...)

"Most of the dogs I sent to anybody were for protection dogs, for their chickens and their stock, their families and what have you. I sold several dogs to folks for hog dogs."
(Mr. Alan Scott, American Bulldog Review)

American Bulldogs, ColoradoOur American Bulldogs

Back in the day... Judah with his kids. From left: Judah, Pete, Doc, Mambo, Lilly (looking downward) and Trinity. All are over 100 pounds, "kid friendly and mother approved." Even as youngsters they were gentle, careful of their size, and truly preferred the company of our kids, as opposed to simply "tolerating" them.

American Bulldogs and Blasco KidsKids and American Bulldogs...

Daughter Kat and son John with Doc, still a baby at 9-months with a whole lot of growing to do.

Look at the peaceful demeanor of this teenage dog, totally trustworthy and gentle with children. All of our dogs develop a similar calm maturity early in life, growing in a calm, loving environment. Treat your dog like a baby bunny for the first 18-months or so, no need to be rough to "raise their aggression." Just be gentle, loving and protective of them, and that is what they will become for you.

Kids and American Bulldog puppiesAmerican Bulldog puppies...

Our dogs meet human hands and voices at birth. Each receives extra feedings by bottle from day-one, imprinting them as much on children as on their own mother. That says something about the bond of trust with the mother, and the early socialization these puppies already have when they enter new homes.

Rehomed puppies are not house/potty trained. Crate training is begun, and we highly recommend a strict crate training regime for early house/potty training, but not for caging when you're away at work!

Bully type American Bulldog puppy, Mambo the Mama's Boy with AbiPuppy Love, Abi and Mambo
An American Bulldog Love Story

Here's Abi and Mambo at 11-weeks. Abi is special needs and with a unique connection to animals. She called to Mambo when he was less than a week old and still blind. He crawled 15-feet across the floor to her (a distant adventure at his age). From that moment on he preferred Abi to his own mother, often refusing to nurse off unless Abi's hand was on him. For the rest of his life, Mambo was inseparable from Abi. Of course, Mambo didn't remain a puppy for long...

Bully type hybrid American Bulldog with son, JohnMambo grew...

Here's John at four hugging Mambo at under a year old. The collar is 24" making his head quite a bit larger. Mambo is over 100 lbs. here and still growing. Full grown he reached 130+ lbs.

This profile shot shows Mambo's slightly longer nose. It's an important distinction between straight Johnson or Bully type American Bulldogs and "hybrid type" American Bulldogs. Most Johnson/Bully types have little stamina and poor sense of smell, because of their squashed noses. The "hybrid types" still achieve the heavier weights, but gain clear breathing and much better stamina.

American Bulldog Blasco's Doc Holliday with son, JohnAmerican Bulldogs like to play...

John with Doc at 9-months. At this age, dog, boy and sisters had a blast. The kids would lay on the tile floor holding a leash and Doc would run them around, sliding across the floor. Doc could pull 2,000+ pounds so he got a 60-pound kid really moving on a waxed floor. Doc truly loved playing with the kids. Many dogs tolerate kids, but I haven't met a well loved American Bulldog that didn't genuinely enjoy the company of little kids, forming deep and lasting bonds with the children in their families.

Working American BulldogHe can catch a football, crunch up a soup bone or swallow a sock or a toy, so be sure to pick up the laundry and toys!

Here the lovely wife Rebecca with Doc having just had his ears and teeth checked. (Obviously we use bleach on our counters!) Doc is 12-months here, roughly 105 pounds.

This breed is not suitable for full-time crating and cages, but do okay in apartments with daily walks. Train them early and they'll be fine.

American BulldogsYoung Adult Puppies...

Mambo, Doc in the rear and Pete on the right, all at or just over 100 lbs. still under a year old. Pete was smallest of the litter and just look at him. He's a 100 pound dog and can leap easily to the roof (the roof) of my Dodge Durango sitting on 31 inch tires (a bit over six feet). Shortest dog in the litter at 25.5" (and in his opinion the prettiest), Pete was always trying to jump onto stuff to be taller and let everyone admire him. Doc is also a regular flying Bulldog, but not the mischief maker Pete is. Pete was our Dennis the Menace, always into stuff, digging holes, pretending he wants to fight, but then when someone turns around snarling, throwing himself dramatically onto his back in surrender, only just teasing them. Pete is just too funny. Doc and Mambo are big fun, but a bit more serious.

American Bulldogs descended from the Alaunt and other ancient Mastiff dogs which were once highly athletic giants of the dog world. Such dogs were homestead helpers, family guardians, hunters of big game, and epic dogs of war. Consider this European painting of shorter nosed, round headed hunting dogs of diverse colors, but seemingly the same type. Compare the size of the men to the size of these robust and highly athletic Mastiff dogs. Most of their heads are taller than a man's hips. Now imagine for a moment if we bred the dogs shown based primarily upon color, faun to faun, white to white, black to black, red to red. In short order we would have four distinct breeds very similar to English Mastiffs, white Mastiffs similar to American Bulldogs, Neapolitan Mastiffs and Dogue de Bordeaux. Yet, there is no question that these dogs come from the same geographic location, likely the same yard and possibly even the same litter(s).
