WEST MAGIC TIBETAN MASTIFFS - NOBLE, LOVING, AND LOYAL. WEST MAGIC IS COMMTTED TO THE BREED AND NOT THE AKC, OR IT'S SHOWRING.

TIBETAN MASTIFF - TIBETAN MASTIFFS OF WEST MAGIC

PLEASE READ! IF YOU HAVE A TIBETAN MASTIFF THAT HAS HAD ANY MAJOR HEALTH ISSUES I WOULD LOVE TO HERE FROM YOU. MANY TIMES, BREEDERS WILL BLAME A PUPPY OWNER AND SAY IT WAS "ENVIRONMENTAL". FOR THIS REASON IT IS VERY HARD TO MAKE EDUATED BREEDING DECISIONS. MANY BREEDERS ARE AFRAID TO DISCLOSE ANY HEALTH ISSUES FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS SO IF YOU ARE WILLING TO CONTACT ME AND SHARE ANYTHING INFORMATION REGARDING HEALTH, IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I FOUND THIS ON THE WEB AND COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF! QUOTE: "IT HAS BEEN WRITTEN THAT SOME OF THE MOST UNPLEASANT HUMANS ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH HAVE BEEN DRAWN TO THE BREED TO PROTECT THEIR OWN AGGRESSIVE AND HOSTILE REPUTATIONS AND PROJECT THEM ONTO THEIR EXOTIC CHANGES." UNQUOTE THIS SEEMS TO BE A VERY TRUE AND SAD ASSESSMENT WITH THE TIBETAN MASTIFF. THESE ARE GOOD WORDS TO HEED; ESPECIALLY WITH LARGE AKC CORPORATE PUPPY FARMS

REMEMBER THE AKC DOES NOT REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING, DOES NOT REQUIRE MICROCHIP, AND DOES NOT REQUIRE DNA BE ON FILE BEFORE BREEDING. THE AKC REQUIRES A $500.00 FEE AND YOU HAVE TO "BEG" THEM TO INVESTIGATE POSSIBLE INACCURATE PEDIGREES. THE ONLY REQUIREMENT AS I UNDERSTAND IT TO ADVERTISE PUPPIES ON THEIR WEBSITE IS TO PAY THEM A FEE AND PAY THEM TO REGISTER THE LITTER WITH THEM? AKC BREEDER OF MERIT? HMMM? I LOVE THIS ONE; "Demonstrates a commitment to ensuring 100% of the puppies produced are individually AKC registered" AGAIN NO HEALTH CHECKS, NO DNA OR MICROCHIP FOR REGISTRY ACCURACY; JUST 100% REGISTRATION OF PUPPIES PRODUCED!!!! (follow the money?) THEY ACCEPTED MY SIGNATURE THAT I NEVER SIGNED OR KNEW ABOUT TO REGISTER A LITTER; BECAUSE I HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE LITTER! THEY REGISTERED MY FRIEND'S LITTER WITHOUT ANY SIGNATURE AT ALL! ABSOLUTELY NO VERIFICATION! BASED ON WHAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED; I AM OF THE OPINION YOU CAN GET A MORE ACCURATE PEDIGREE AND HEALTHIER PUPPY FROM A NON SHOW SMALL HOBBY BREEDER. I COULD BE WRONG, BUT MY EXPERIENCES HAVE LED ME TO MY OPINIONS.

****** IDENTITY THEFT, STOLEN DOGS, AND UNAUTHORIZED REGISTRATIONS? my experiences.

I have noticed that some AKC show breeders are warning people to be leary of breeders who will not publicly disclose their dogs full registered name or registration numbers. I personally will not divulge that information because I have found that many of these "so called" ethical AKC breeders only want that information for unscrupulous purposes. A few of these very deceptive "so called" ethical AKC breeders have acquired dogs from breeders who would not sell to them for good reasons (i.e. reports of animal abuse, dogs mysteriously dying while in their possession and or the breeder has slandered them). AKC does not verify signatures when registering dogs. How do I know this? Because they registered a litter without my knowledge of said litter or my signature. Even though AKC had my email which had been on file with them for years; they never bothered to contact me or try to verify my signature. They just went ahead and registered the litter without my knowledge. Unfortunately I found out about it when a puppy wound up in the rescue and I was falsely accused of breeding the litter. My friend had a contract breeched by a very dishonest person, and AKC registered the litter to his dog without his knowledge or permission. Bottom line, some of these "so called" ethical AKC breeders are like identity thieves. Publishing your dogs full registered name and registration numbers allows some of these unscrupulous breeders to fraudulently breed and register litters and dogs without their owner's knowledge or permission because AKC has been known not to verify signatures. These practices have even resulted in dogs being stolen. Once they get your dog's "identity" they can get them registered. One Tibetan Mastiff Informational website has published some of my dog's identities without my permission. The owner of the site is an AKC advocate and even though I have asked them to remove my dog's information they have refused. I believe based on my personal experiences that this could lead to my dog's being stolen and registered without my permission. It has been my experience that AKC usually sides with it's high volume corporate breeders who give them tons and tons of registrations over a "little" guy like myself. So there is a reason why small "truly ethical" breeders to not want their dog's "IDENTIFYING" INFORMATION PUBLISHED. IT'S TO PROTECT THEIR DOGS FROM BEING STOLEN AND REGISTERED WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE OR PERMISSION; NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE HIDING ANYTHING!!!!

I HAVE AN EMAIL FROM AN AKC SHOW BREEDER EXPLAINING TO ME THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER NOT TO QUESTION A PEDIGREE AND JUST BE QUIET. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? WELL, I TAKE THAT TO MEAN THEY DON'T CARE IF THE PEDIGREE IS CORRECT AS LONG AS THEY HAVE A GOOD LOOKING DOG THAT WILL WILL A MEANINGLESS "CHAMPIONSHIP". (HEALTHY? WHO KNOWS? IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE PEDIGREE; HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT DISEASES YOU MAY BE BREEDING?)

 

BEFORE YOU READ MORE ABOUT THE AKC; WATCH THE MOVIE "BEST IN SHOW". THIS MOVIE REPRESENTS MANY OF THE EXPERIENCES I HAVE WITNESSED IN THE AKC. THEN READ THIS ARTICLE WRITTEN BY A UKC JUDGE. I HAVE FOUND THAT THIS ARTICLE "HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD". ! BY ALL MEANS IF YOU ENJOY THIS CRAZY ATMOSPHERE FULL OF NUTTY PEOPLE; GO FOR IT. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE JUST AN ORDINARY, REGULAR PERSON, WHO JUSTS LOVES YOUR DOG; I CERTAINLY DO NOT ADVISE GETTING INVOLVED IN SUCH A PHONY, CUT THROAT, ORGANIZATION.

THE FOLLOWING ARE A FEW KEY QUOTES FROM THE ARTICLE:

"Within the U.S., the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the United Kennel Club (UKC) are the two generally accepted all-breed dog registries. Both are over 100 years old, with AKC being 14 years older than UKC."

"Exhibiting in AKC is a more formal affair. People dress-up for their moment of glory, running around the ring in business attire with their well coiffed canines. B P, breeder and grooming shop owner says, “The goal (at AKC Shows) is win at all costs; it’s like freeway driving at rush hour, with tension, stress for dogs and handlers, very noticeable to visitors, very structured.”

"The American Kennel Club supports the “professional” side of the dog sport. Known as “professional handlers,” they are paid (an AKC breeder charges a higher price to pay for this sick hobby; not that you are getting a better dog! Somebody has to pay those approx. $150.00 per run around the ring handlers) to show dogs for other people. In suits and sports coats, they are proficient artists who win the top prizes and take their profession seriously. The average owner-handler can’t compete with these folks, and thus may find it less enjoyable to participate."

"While the Grand Champion title in UKC may be equally difficult to achieve, UKC’s top honor, the “Total Dog” title requires the dog to “do” more than just look good."

BASED ON MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE AKC SHOW CROWD; IF YOU DON'T GO ALONG WITH THEIR RIDICULOUS AGENDA, THEY WILL LIE AND SLANDER YOU. I AM JUST A NORMAL PERSON WHO LOVES MY DOGS AND HAVE FOUND THE AKC TO BE FILLED WITH SNOBBISH, CONDESCENDING, PEOPLE WHO SPEND MONEY TO GET RIBBONS. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THE RIBBONS ARE WORTHLESS AND THAT THE AKC IS VERY MUCH LIKE WASHINGTON D.C. WHERE THE PROFESSIONAL HANDLERS WHO I REFER TO AS THE "AKC LOBBYISTS" ARE PAID TO BRING HOME THE BACON TO THEIR PAYING "CONSTITUENTS". I HAVE FOUND THAT IF YOU DO NOT GO ALONG WITH THEIR STUPID GAME; THEY WILL MAILIOUSLY ATTACK YOU

 

 

MEANINGLESS "CHAMPIONSHIPS" BOUGHT AND PAID FOR SO THAT AKC BREEDERS CAN MAKE YOU "THINK" YOU ARE GETTING A BETTER DOG! READ ABOUT "KENNEL WINS", MAKING YOUR OWN MAJORS (MAKING A MAJOR IS BRINGING YOUR WORST AND BEST DOGS TO A SHOW WHERE YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE THE ONLY EXHIBITOR FOR YOUR BREED). INSTANT WIN. BEAT YOUR OWN WORST DOGS! YES, IT HAPPENS ALOT WITH SO CALLED "ETHICAL" AKC BREEDERS. THEY WILL BASH SOMEONE LIKE ME FOR EXPOSING THEM BUT I DON'T CARE. READ ABOUT IT HERE IN THEIR OWN WORDS!

I GOT THE FOLLOWING RIGHT FROM SO CALLED, ETHICAL, WELL RESPECTED AKC SHOW BREEDERS. I WAS TOLD SOME JUDGES DON'T KNOW THE TIBETAN MASTIFF STANDARDS, AND THAT SOME HAVE ONLY SEEN PHOTOS OF THEM, CLAIMING IT IS BECAUSE THE BREED IS TOO NEW TO AKC. I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY OTHERS THAT ONCE THE AKC GETS AHOLD OF A BREED; THEY RUIN THEM BY JUDGING FOR THE "RING" AND NOT THE STRUCTURE OR WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE. RIGHT OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS. SO WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR AKC REGISTRATION? WHAT IS IT WORTH?

THE AKC REMINDS ME OF THE MAFIA. COULD IT BE THAT YOU JUST MIGHT GET SUSPENDED AND HAVE YOUR DOG STOLEN WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE OR SIGNATURE BECAUSE YOU REGISTERED IT WITH THE AKC? BELIEVE IT OR NOT? CONTACT MR. RON BOMBLISS AND FIND OUT WHAT THE AKC DID TO HIM AND WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS KESANG CAMPS MAXIMUS.

IT'S PUPPY SEASON! BUYER BEWARE!

IT'S PUPPY SEASON - BUYER BEWARE!!!!!

SOME BREEDERS USE COLOR TO TRY TO GET MORE MONEY. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

$4000.00 PLUS FOR PUPPIES HERE IN THE U.S? HOLY COW!
IF YOU ARE GOING TO PAY THAT MUCH; I HAVE A BRIDGE TO SELL YOU!!! GO OVERSEAS AND GET A NICE OUT CROSS LINE. DON'T PAY A PREMIUM FOR COLOR!!!!! STRUCTURE AND HEALTH ARE MORE IMPORTATANT. BE SURE BOTH PARENTS ARE AT LEAST TWO YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN CHIPPED, HEALTH TESTED AND HAVE DNA ON FILE. I WOULD GUESS THEY ONLY PAID $1500.00 IF THAT FOR THE SIRE OR DAM.

BEWARE OF BREEDERS WHO BREED THE SAME TWO PARENTS OVER AND OVER AND OVER. ONE BREEDER BRED TO AN UNTESTED MALE YEAR AFTER YEAR. MOST GOOD BREEDERS WOULD NOT DO THIS, ESPECIALLY WITH AN UNTESTED DOG. WHY WOULD ANYBODY BREED A FEMALE EVERY YEAR UNTIL SHE WAS 6 OR SEVEN TO THE SAME UNTESTED MALE?

THE GREEDY SCAVENGERS ARE OUT AND READY TO SELL. I HAVE NOTICED A LOT OF FIRST TIME, SOME MULTI BREED, TIBETAN MASTIFF BREEDERS OUT THERE SELLING PUPS FROM UNTESTED ONE YEAR OLDS. SOME ASKING $5000.00! OMG! SERIOUSLY, WHO DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE KIDDING? DON'T BE TAKEN FOR A FOOL AS WE WERE :(. THERE ARE MANY DISHONEST, UNETICHAL SCAVENGERS AND SCAM ARTISTS, WHO ARE VERY GOOD AT LYING OUT THERE. THEY BUY FOR THE AKC CORPORATE PUPPY MILL BREEDERS AND BROKERS WHO THEN MAKE UP PEDIGREES. WHATEVER THEIR SELLING POINTS ARE? COLOR? AKC "CHAMPIONS"? WHATEVER THEIR PUNCH LINE IS, DO YOUR RESEARCH.

THE TIBETAN MASTIFF IS NO LONGER A RAREBREED!

THERE ARE NOW 10+ PAGES OF TIBETAN MASTIFFS PUPPIES ON ONE PUPPY SITE ALONE!!! DON'T PAY SCAVENGER, FIRST TIME TIBETAN MASTIFF BREEDERS EXORBITANT PRICES PROMOTING COLOR AS BEING RARE. THERE IS A LIMITED GENE POOL OF TIBETAN MASTIFFS IN THE U.S. AND YOU ARE IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT. MOST PEDIGREES CONTAIN SIMILAR LINES. BE WARY OF PEOPLE BREEDING THE FIRST TWO TIBETAN MASTIFFS THEY HAVE EVER OWNED AS SOON AS THEY TURN ONE WITH NO HEALTH TESTING, NO DNA ON FILE AND NO MICROCHIP. BE WARY OF "LITTLE KNOWN" REGISTRIES. THE TWO REGISTRIES MOST RECOGNIZED ARE THE UKC AND THE AKC. SOME OTHER REGISTRIES ARE BEING USED TO REGISTER DOGS THEY WERE NOT SUPPOSE TO REGISTER. WHAT KIND OF PERSON DOES THIS? SOMEBODY I WOULD NOT WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH.

WARNING: FIND OUT WHAT KENNEL NAME IS ON THE SIRE AND DAM OF THE PUPPIES. BE SURE TO CONTACT THAT KENNEL AND ASK THEM IF THEY SOLD THEM WITH BREEDING RIGHTS. I HAVE NOTICED A LOT OF DECEPTIVE INDIVIDUALS ARE BREEDING DOGS THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO AND THERE MAY BE LEGAL ACTION TAKEN AGAINST THEM. IT IS PROBABLY BEST TO PASS ON THESE PUPPIES UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND THE HASSLE.

PERSONALLY IF I WERE GOING TO SPEND $5000.00 FOR A PUPPY, I WOULD GO OVERSEAS AND GET A VERY NICE TIBETAN MASTIFF WITH NEW BLOOD TO BRING BACK TO THE U.S. I CERTAINLY WOULD NOT SPEND $5000.00 ON SOME OF THE STUFF THEY ARE SELLING HERE IN THE U.S. I CAN THINK OF MANY KENNELS HERE THAT CHARGE LESS THAT I WOULD PREFER TO BUY OR RECOMMEND. FROM MY EXPERIENCE WITH SOME PEOPLE; I JUST COULD NOT JUSTIFY SPENDING $5000.00 FOR WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL. I HAVE FOUND THAT THE MOST LONG STANDING BREEDERS HERE IN THE U.S. CHARGE SOMEWHERE AROUND $3500.00 FOR A SHOW QUALITY PUP AND $2000.00 FOR A PET. THESE ARE LONG TIME EXPERIENCED BREEDERS WHO HAVE FAR MORE KNOWLEDGE THAN THE "NEW" SCAVENGER BREEDERS POPPING UP TRYING TO SCAM YOU $4000.00 PLUS. I COULD NOT RECOMMEND A BREEDER CHARGING THAT HERE IN THE U.S.!!! NO WAY.

TYPICALLY, PEOPLE WILL TELL YOU THAT GOOD BREEDERS HAVE RESERVATIONS FOR THEIR PUPPIES BEFORE THEY BREED. BUYER BEWARE.

DO NOT FORGET THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE MICRO CHIPPING SO HEALTHY ANIMALS CAN BE SUBSTITURED IN ORDER TO PASS HEALTH TESTS, THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE HEALTH TESTING OF BREEDING PAIRS AND THE AKC "DOES NOT" REQUIRE DNA ALONG WITH MICROCHIP TO INSURE THE ACCURACY OF IT'S REGISTRY!!!! REMEMBER AS AN EXAMPLE, COLOR IS NOT AN INDICATOR OF THE HEALTH OF A DOG OR QUAILITY. SOME GOOD ADVICE IS TO LOOK PAST THE COLOR. STRUCTURE AND TEMPERAMENT ARE MORE IMPORTANT. SO NOW THAT IT IS PUPPY SEASON; BUYER BUYER. IT'S NICE BEING ABLE TO GIVE TIPS WHEN YOU ARE NOT SELLING PUPPIES FOR A LIVING :). THE U.S. MARKET HAS BECOME OVER RUN WITH NEW PEOPLE BREEDING THE FIRST TWO Tibetans THEY HAVE. THESE ARE JUST A FEW WORDS OF ADVICE. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT; NO MOTIVATION HERE. I HAVE NO PUPPIES TO SELL YOU! IF WE CAN SAVE SOMEONE ELSE FROM GETTING SCREWED, THAT IS A GOOD THING!

THE TIBETAN MASTIFF IS NO LONGER A RAREBREEDS

PERSONALLY WE ARE TERRIFIED TO BE INVOLVED WITH THE AKC BASED ON OUR EXPRIENCES. REALLY SCARED OF THEM.

PUPPY FARMS | PUPPY MILLS - what are they?

WORST IN SHOW

AKC AND THE HUMANE SOCIETY

EMAIL ME FOR NANO AND MOXIE'S STORY

THE TIBETAN MASTIFF IS A FIERCE GUARDIAN OF HIS FAMILY AND FLOCK,
MAJESTIC IN STATURE AND LOYAL FRIEND.

Legend has it that Tibetans believe that the souls of monks and nuns who were not’t  worthy to be either humans or Shambhalas (the heavenly realm) have been reincarnated as these dogs. Perhaps this explains their high level of intelligence and loving nature.

This breed is considered to be Royal as it belonged to Kings and Queens like King George IV, Queen Victoria and Genghis Khan who is believed to have 30,000 of these dogs when he was on his expedition to Western Europe.

Highly intelligent with a mind of their own, the Tibetan Mastiff can sense danger very acutely.

WELCOME! THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THIS VERY SPECIAL BREED.
