change of website..

Here is a deleted portion of my website, and I just am putting it here, to save, and for people to view…

What can we say about our dogs? To start with, we love every one of them. We have raised them ourselves, most of them from puppies. Some have came as adolescents. A couple have flown across the sea, starting with Contessa del Gheno, followed by Ettore and Florra del Gheno, from our close friends in Italy. We can’t help but show off our Neo family!

Centurian Mastini is well into it’s 4th generation of excellent neapolitan mastiffs. Each generation shows improvement, health and conformation wise, over previous generations. We have 4 generations here, at CM, on the ground. We are planning a 5th.  And will be happy to show you. How many other breeders, can say that? Longevity is a much proclaimed issue, and many breeders say, that it is a priority, and a goal of theirs. But, when it comes to ages of dogs at their time of death, how old do their dogs actually live??? Do lifespans improve from generation to generation?? Or, is this simply lip service, served up to the unsuspecting anxious, excited puppy shopper?

We, here at CM realize this is a painful subject, especially when a beloved dog dies so young, having experienced this heartbreak.

This will only improve if breeders are actually working together to decipher the reason behind the young ages of death in so many very young dogs. Ask your potential breeder for statistics. Do some research. Ask how long their dogs average lifespans are. And then, think about your decision.

And one more question for your prospective breeder. And do your research. Ask them what they do with the dogs they are done breeding for them. Please, ask them. You may be very surprisedl For example, the ex-president of the national club puts his dogs into rescue. Then, ask us what we do with our beloved dogs. Please, ask us.
