TheAmerican Bandoggeis an extremely intelligent dog.Though breeders of Bandogges today disagree on just what breeds went into Swinford's original breeding scheme, the general compromise is that it was 50 % American Pit Bull Terrier and 50 % American English Mastiff. The most common method employed to produce a Bandogge is to cross a good game male American Pit Bull Terrier with a large and strong English Mastiff bitch. The name Bandogge was used in the old England by theSaxons and comes from the word Banda,-a Saxon word for chain.American bandogges need exercise just as much as american pitbulls do. English Mastiffs are helping set the standard along with american pitbulls..The American Bandogge Mastiff is not a purebred dog, in the way we know the word "purebred." The "Bandogge" is a nonspecific name of any Bulldog class Mastiff breed. Their origin is of American Pit Bull Terrier and Neapolitan Mastiff. This breed makes an excellent family guard dog, as it's good with people and other animals that it is socialized with, but will not tolerate intruders.Common misspellings are american bandogge, american bandog mastiff, american bandog mastiffs, american bandog mastiff, american bandog mastiffs, americanbandogge mastiff, americanbandogge mastiffs, american bandogmastiff, american bandogmastiffs. <
