Puppy Application
Please p​​rint and complete the application and scan and return using the below email at the bottom of this page, or mail to the address provided, also at the bottom of this page.
Pyrenean Mastiffs de Monte Sano sells 3 levels of puppy:

  1. First Pick Show/Breeding Quality - This reserves the first pick male or female as requested.  There must be more than one male and/or female for this to apply.
  2. Show/Breeding Quality - If there are one or more male and/or female puppies that display qualities that indicate it will more than likely grow to be a show/breeding quality dog.
  3. Livestock/Estate Guardian Quality - These are puppies that are still wonderfully healthy babies, but they do not display the qualities that indicate it has the potential to be a successful show/breeding dog.

        When purchasing a First Pick or Breeding/Show Quality puppy you are selecting the best puppy(ies) in the litter.  The one(s) that show the most potential to become a top show winner and breeding producer.  The operative word is "potential".  There are no guarantees that the puppy selected will be that dog or bitch, or that it will always out perform a sibling at a dog show.  Puppies change as they grow.  You always hope for the best, but there are occasions where a once high quality puppy ends up with a few faults, a major fault such as their spots fade to completely white, or an unforeseen health issue.  There have been occasions where a lesser puppy in a litter grows to be a fantastic show dog.  This is just how it is.  There are never any rock solid guarantees when working with a living animal.  That said, most experienced breeders do pick the best the vast majority of the time.  Your best chance for a high quality puppy that grows into a high quality dog or bitch is to do your homework, study the pedigrees, and deal with a reputable breeder that has quality proven dogs and bitches.

Puppy Naming Convention

Pyrenean Mastiffs de Monte Sano follows the naming conventions used in Europe to include the breed's country of origin, Spain.  The first litter is the "A" litter and all puppies are registered with a name that begins with the letter A and includeds the kennel name "de Monte Sano". You can see that in the next section which shows the A litter.   The next litter will be the "B" litter and all names will begin with the letter B.  This continues through the alphabet with each litter and then returns to "A" after litter "Z".  I have a list of names that will be used for each litter.  If you purchase a puppy, you will either be able to select a name from that list for your puppy, or pick your own name that follows the naming convention.  Like all show dogs, this is their registered name and does not need to be the name you call them.  Most have a call name for their dog which is the name the dog knows and is used daily, and often times has nothing to do with the registered name.
