The French Mastiff is an immensely strong and powerful dog breed that hails from France and is commonly called as Dogue de Bordeaux in several European Countries. These dogs have a fairly calm and composed personality and they remain very gentle and friendly with their family members and loved ones. These canines are very loyal to their human parents and close ones and are known to make pretty decent pets.

The demand for this breed is pretty average in India. These pooches have a subpar tolerance to heat and high temperatures and they are on the pricier side when it comes to bringing them home and then properly maintaining them. But if someone is fine with these things and is able to provide proper care to these canines especially during the hotter months, then these dogs can make pretty awesome house pets for a lot of Indian dog lovers.

Given below is the average price list of the French Mastiff puppies which are available in various variations.

  • French Mastiff Puppy price (Basic): ₹45,000 to ₹55,000
  • French Mastiff Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹55,000 to ₹70,000
  • French Mastiff Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹70,000 to ₹1,00,000

Now, if you are thinking of bringing a French Mastiff home to raise as a pet and you want to get this pooch from a breeder, then it is very important that you get it only from a trusted breeder. Several breeders in the country are just looking to make more profits and they are least bothered about the overall quality of the canine that they are providing to the potential dog parents. But there are also some reliable breeders present that not only care for prospective dog parents’ satisfaction but most importantly they only provide the healthiest and fittest pups to them. Also, being a good breeder, they also guide the naïve or inexperienced dog parents and nudge them in the right direction if they are having any confusions about the needs and requirements of the pup that they desire. Therefore, it is always a good idea to get the pet of your dreams only from a trustworthy source and not from any random unreliable breeder.

Factors Affecting the French Mastiff Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original French Mastiff price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for a French Mastiff (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic French Mastiff puppy can cost anywhere around ₹45,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

Based on the physical appearance, the overall price of a canine can vary. As the French Mastiff can be found in various different coat colors such as Red, Fawn, Isabella, Tan & Mahogany, its overall price can also vary depending upon the rarity of the coat color.

Also, these pooches can again be divided into different types based on the various areas that these canines originated in. These types are Bordeaux French Mastiff, Parisian French Mastiff and Toulouse French Mastiff and these different types can again influence the overall price of this breed.

Age & Gender

Young dogs and pups usually cost more than older or fully developed pooches. Also, it is seen that male dogs are sometimes sold at a little higher cost when compared to the female canines.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred French Mastiff is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

As the French Mastiff is not a very easily available breed in a country like India, its price is fairly high as compared to those breeds whose availability in the country is a lot better. Easily available breeds tend to cost less compared to the breeds who are harder to find in a particular location.

Reputed Breeder

Popular breeders are also known to sell dogs and other animals at a little higher price as compared to those breeders who are not as reputed and popular as them. This also affects the average price of a dog in a region.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
