Comment to 'What dogs do you own, what breeds are they, and how do they differ? '
  • Tonedog you write: "I own a 6 year old male australian bandog, so approximately (very approximate) 70 % neo mastiff 25% amstaff and 5% boxer/ boston terrier. And a 3 year old female bandog that is predominantly dogue de bordeaux x apbt." "... she's a bit gutless quite honestly, likes to stand behind the neo x when threatened," "I'd question her guardian abilities, she's more just an alarm dog for the neo x. I never had her temperament tested (which I did do with the neo x), but I have a feeling she would react nervously to a suspicious decoy, and lean back into the handler and bark. Just a hunch based on what I have seen from her in day to day life." "My neo x is relatively what a lot of people would call "dopey". Really relaxed and laid back and honestly not the sharpest tool in the shed. There's none of that craftiness or cunning, he seems to have a really honest even naive brain. " "My neo x is extremely biddable and extremely sensitive to correction. It really only takes touching the brim of your hat for him to melt into the ground like he's going to get a serious beating, but he's never had a serious beating in his life." This is your idea of what bandogges are? Whom is the breeder that you have bought these dogs from and what is their breeding history? Do they temperament test their dogs? Do they penn hip test their dogs? Do they do any type of working their dogs?
