Cinco Deseos  Ranch

LET'S TALK ABOUT HIPS AND OFA CERTIFICATION!   It's a fact sM can get bad hips.  I pride myself in being a transparent breeder who does not hide hip x ray results.  I still hold the record for the most SM OFA'd in America and am currently the only SM breeder OFAing her dogs in the USA.  (Sad, but true....)
See my Spanish Mastiff OFA results on my News/Litters page.  My young girls Gwangi and Yessi both will be OFA certified BEFORE they are bred!

I'm getting many queries for SM, and here are answers to the most asked questions:

Spanish Mastiff puppies: Price: $1500 (Deposit of $750 due when pups born; Balance due at 8 weeks)

NO air shipping, to anywhere.   You must come to my ranch to meet me, the pack , and pick up pup(s). If you do not own an LGD and have livestock I will not sell you a single/solo pup - you must buy two. LGDs should never be used alone. They are pack animals. Run them in pairs, trios, quads or more.

All puppy vaccinations included. My pups leave at 12 weeks of age. Health records included which show every date of every vaccination (4) and dewormings (from time eyes open, every 10-12 days with Pyrental and Valbazen done before pup leaves ranch for tapeworms.) Vet checked. Microchipped upon buyer's request. Health replacement guarantee (see below.)

You must complete an application and include photos with your application.  Take your time, do it well - first impressions are everything and if your application comes off slap-dash, I won't respond.

Working homes always given preference because my working lines do best as LGDs, not pets.

100% health & work guarantee/replacement guarantee; lifetime breeder support as long as customer stays in touch as required. My pups are pack raised in cattle and sheep and have run of the ranch. They leave here exceptionally confident, self-assured, healthy and ready to assimilate into their new homes.  I strongly promote running sibling pairs. See my Spanish Mastiff Blog for posts on the strength and smarts in running and using sibling groups of pups.

Pups handled from birth and uniquely pack raised.  Never only penned up for weeks in livestock, my pups have access to my entire ranch and are exposed to everything that goes with it.  They have proven track records of being exceptionally confident, self assured, and smart.

since 2009 I have imported 12 SM to my ranch, from three countries and I have been the first American to import over Abelgas, Lu Dareva, Dartibo and Puerto Canencia bloodlines to America.  My SM are working all over the USA. Excellent references available, of course!

Happy to announce that both Hercules del Viejo Paramo and Cinco Deseos Ranch Gwangi - who are on track to be bred early next year - are having their hips officially tested and OFA rated! I am (and have been) the only Spanish Mastiff breeder in America OFA certifying their dog's hips. Whether the results are excellent or bad - I am proud to be an "open book" transparent breeder who does not hide things.  ***Note: you can get a really good look at Gwangi in the Dogumentary TV special on the Spanish Mastiff. She is a solid, good moving girl, smaller than some of my dogs, but takes no prisoners and is a fiercely devoted guardian. Hercules' pedigree is here.  Gwangi is out of my "G" Litter, Furiano de Puerto Canencia x Tioda de Abelgas.
