What is a bandoggie? No you should definitely not breed your dog, he's not old enough. I'm sorry to hear your dog has cancer, but that's just one more reason not to breed him. It's very hard on a male dog to service a bitch, and you don't want to put your dog through that, especially since he's sick. Sorry for your trouble, but breeding him is not a good idea.
bandogge was a name used for the early Mastiff/Old English Bulldog cross that was the foundation of the breed now known as the Bullmastiff. There is a following that is trying to recreate this breed as well as the original bulldog which looked more like the current pit bull than the squat lumbering Bulldog we see in the show rings today.This can create a very bad situation as the early crosses were very other dog agressive and in todays urban environment such a dog can be a real challenge to control and a legal liability to own.But as with the demand for the "designer" dogs there will always be the people who want bragging rights to having the biggest/baddest and the unscrupulous who will make money by filling the demand.By the way I don't see how a pup less than a year old could have cancer and it be determined to not be genetic unless the dog was over dosed in radiology or fed lethal amounts of chemicals, in either case such an animal if not already infertile soon will be if given treatment for cancer.
Thankyou for the information Drogheda, this is another one I've not heard of. I too was thinking that at 9 months there would be absolutely no way to determine if the cancer was genetic, unless as you say the dog was exposed to a chemical, or a large dose of radiation. Either way, you would never breed this dog at 9 months.
unless a dog has had all the health tests required for breeding a healthy liter it should never be done. and lets not even bring up the dogs age and health cond. there are so many unwanted dogs and other animals out there already why would you want to add to the populaton by breeding your dog, i would concentrate on getting your dog the med help he needs. that should be your first concern.
