All about us.
Cory and Scott Martello are animal lovers and have raised English Mastiffs for the last 25 years. We have been married for over 25 years now and live on a few acres in Colfax, CA. Our Mastiffs have the company of the cats, horses, goats, and chickens. All of the dogs sleep in the house and can be found lounging around on the bed or in various parts of the house at any given time.
When we are out of the house we typically have one or more of the dogs with us. They enjoy going with us to feed the other animals and have never been aggressive to any of them.
We have always performed the OFA Certification for the hips before breeding, as one of our Mastiffs "Sage" had hip displasia. We had hip replacements done for her at six months of age for her to lead a normal life which she did until she died at 11 years old. Where nothing is ever guaranteed, we take many preventive precautions as we would not want to have any of our babies or adoptive parents go through what we did, even though we wouldn't trade a moment that we had with her.
Dera, our first Mastiff, a fawn, never had a problem. She died of cancer at the ripe age of 13 years old. As you can see, we believe that if they are raised properly with lots of love and attention, are in the house, and well taken care of they can beat the odds and live past the 7-9 year expectancy. Quality food is part of that care too.
We like to have all of our puppies go to homes where the new adoptive parents know what to expect and what to provide for their well being. In addition, We will always be a source of information to the adoptive parents and will strive to find the answers to their questions if we dont know.
We take great pride in finding the best homes for our grandkids as we want them to be placed in great homes that they will be a part of the family for the rest of their natural lives.
We would also like to let you know that if you are in the Sacramento Area and require a GREAT Pet Hospital we recommend that you see Blue Cross Pet Hospital. Dr. Roberta Raymond is the best! They are located at 7615 Fair Oaks Blvd. Carmichael, Ca 95608 916-944-3850. We love this Hospital and Dr. Raymond so much we make the hour trek to see her when our kids need any care. You will not be disappointed in her service/care of your pets!
